Steve along with his son Stephen Turner opened Turner Country, LLC in early 2016. Their combined 56 years of knowledge in the real estate market is what makes them such advantageous assets when it comes to their educated approach to the business.
Growing up farming and ranching as a child and young man on his family farm, Steve garnered an ambition of owning his own ranch. In 2002, Steve made that dream a reality when he purchased his ranch in Clay County and started his own commercial cattle business. He and his wife Tia along with their 3 daughters and son have enjoyed the unforgettable experiences and life lessons that have come along with the ranch. Steve has since partnered with his son Stephen in his cattle venture. They own and lease additional properties in Clay county, which they use for their expanding cattle operation.
