About Us

Carson Land Consultants, LLC emerged in January, 1997 as the third generation of a Warrenton-based institution in operation for over 30 years. Originally founded as a branch of Ross, France & Ratliff (1972), the company evolved into an independent surveying business owned by James H. Harris (circa 1983). Since then, Jim Carson - who bought out the company in 1997 - has developed the business into a successful engineering and surveying firm. The resulting Carson Land Consultants has dutifully served Warrenton and surrounding areas with exceptional effort and dedication to quality work and meaningful relationships. 

Reliability - Relationships - Results

Jim Carson, owner of Carson Land Consultants, has over 35 years of experience in land use solutions. With an extensive background in civil engineering, surveying, and land planning services, Jim has thoughtfully assisted clients in the completion of their projects in addition to helping develop Fauquier County. Jim has participated on several county Economic Development Committees including the Business Advisory Board appointed by the Board of Supervisors, Hospice of the Rapidan, and Board of the Fauquier Chamber. Jim’s dedication to the growth of Fauquier County is shown through his precise and innovative work and involvement in the community.
