detailed maintenance, and maximizing revenue while minimizing expenses.  We are proud to say that in an industry that has high turnover we have one of the highest retention rates.

Our Team

Jason Carson, Property Manager

After graduating from Morgan State University in Hospitality Management, I worked a few years in the restaurant industry but quickly realized my passion was in real estate investing. By merging my expertise in customer service, I found an easy transition into property management in 2009. The Real Estate industry is constantly changing and there’s never a dull moment, which is a constant reminder that my career change was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I literally can’t see myself doing anything else. I love solving problems and ensuring that community Board’s or investors are meeting their financial and property goals.

I am a licensed realtor in Washington, DC and Maryland; a licensed property manager in Washington, DC; A graduate of the Real Estate Associate Program (REAP); A member of the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors (GCAAR) and hold the current designation of CMCA (Certified Manager of Community Associations).

Linda D. Carson – Harris, Broker/Owner

In 1987, after being a real estate agent with Long and Foster, I decided to become a real estate broker and form Carson Properties, a real estate brokerage and management firm.  The firm developed a reputation for helping the small landlord and the moderate-income buyer purchase property.  We developed wonderful relationships with Non-profit entities like Washington Intercity Self Help (WISH), Columbia Heights Merchants Association, Columbia Heights Development Association and MANNA where I also served as a board member.

My career in property management and housing development afforded me many opportunities to include developing homeowner training and development/acquisitions manuals, and frequent speaking engagements.  I received the Theodore R. Hagans Award for outstanding achievements in Business, and awards for outstanding service in community management, Washington, D.C.  I’ve enjoyed a career in real estate services and investing for 32 years.  The daily operations of Carson Properties were turned over to my son, Jason in 2019.
