J. Carson Tranquille

Broker / Owner

With over 30 years of experience as a public servant including serving as a Police Chief, Carson created Tranquille Realty with the goal to provide trustworthy and competent real estate services to civilians, the military and public servants alike.


Carson obtained his Florida Real Estate license in 1990 and practiced real estate part-time while working as a Deputy Sheriff. Carson quickly realized that he had to choose between the two careers, so he changed the status of his Real Estate license to an inactive status and stayed up to date in real estate laws and rules. After serving the public for 30 years as a Law Enforcement Professional, he wants to serve as your Real Estate Broker. He will serve you with the same zeal and professionalism.  View his resume below.
