Meet Roger

Although I have spent the majority of my life here in Santa Fe, I was born in San Francisco. My father was in the Navy and when World War II ended, the destroyer he was serving on pulled into San Francisco Bay and he was discharged. He convinced my mother to move away from her native Chicago and strong Irish-Catholic community to join him. He worked for a company that had contracts with both Sandia and Los Alamos National Labs and my first experience of New Mexico was as a child when we would come out here for his work. It made a lasting impression on me and I knew from an early age that I wanted to return.

I have been in Santa Fe for 33 years now and I have been a Realtor for the last twenty. Real estate as a career is a tough one. It involves working with people in the most stressful time of their lives and is often rated as one of the most stressful occupations. I find it extremely rewarding. I have risen to the top of my profession because I have a passion for helping people and I focus on getting tasks done and solving problems. I see my job as helping to get people from where they are to where they want to be. I work together with wife and best friend Melissa. I am an associate broker with Keller Williams Realty Santa Fe and I also serve as the President of the Santa Fe Association of Realtors.

Volunteering is one of my core values and I have served many organizations and boards from New Mexico Search & Rescue to Audubon New Mexico. I am also passionate about being in New Mexico’s great outdoors so together with my wife and family we get out as often as we can. I enjoy hiking, fly-fishing and cycling. During the COVID quarantine I built a bocce court for the family and now I enjoy playing that too.

Keep Santa Fe Different…Elect Roger Carson to the office of City Council, District 1.
