Carson M. Horton, RS

Mr. Horton’s background as a builder, contractor and project manager over the last 30 years serves as the foundation for his work as a reserve study provider

As a contractor and builder Mr. Horton gained extensive experience with blueprint reading, contract & specifications writing, job costing, scheduling and estimating; disciplines which have been particularly well suited to his transition into the field of preparing reserve studies and maintenance programs for common interest developments, resort properties and single-owner investment properties.
