Tim Turner

Co-Owner & CEO

Tim, President of Turner & Son Homes, joined his father in the home building business in 1999, bringing a wealth of experience, knowledge, and attention to detail. He earned a degree in mechanical engineering from Oklahoma State University in 1990, at which time he joined the US Marine Corp as an officer. During those four years, Tim lived in North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, Okinawa, and Korea, the only time in which he’s lived outside of this great state. He is a long time member of the National Association of Home Builders and the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association. Tim also serves on the Board of Directors of St. Mary’s Episcopal School and is a proud Cub Scout Leader.

Tim chooses to spend his spare time doing whatever his family is doing, whether that’s sailing, hiking, listening to his son on the piano, or cheering on his daughter in her rock climbing competitions. When asked which quote is most meaningful to him, he will tell you that “The greatest results in life are usually attained by simple means and the exercise of ordinary qualities. These may be for the most part summed up in these two: common sense and perseverance.”

Ben Turner

Co-Owner & Vice President

His 60 years experience in the home building trade ensures he has the experience for whatever job he is called upon to do. He first launched Turner and Son Homes, then known as First Start Homes Inc., in 1990.
“I come from the old school of doing things the right way – not the cheap way or the fast way. Using quality materials and skilled craftsmen is essential for the kind of homes we build. We’re also very detail oriented and are on job sites daily to be sure our standards are being met. Our customers tell us they can see and feel the difference in our homes.”
A native of Oklahoma, Ben is a 1961 distinguished graduate of the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association and is a life time member of their board.

Athena Captain


In early November 2011, the already-strong sales and marketing department realized an instant surge in energy when Athena joined the company as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing. She is a goal-driven leader by nature and prefers not to limit herself to coloring within the lines, so the idea that Turner & Son Homes strives for excellence, invests in its staff, and embraces innovative thinking quickly drew her in. Athena’s motto of “No Excuses, No Exceptions” suits her well.

Athena opened Athena’s School of Sales and Marketing in January 2017 where she teaches continual education classes for realtors. Outside of the office, she is a devoted volunteer for Savannah Station, an organization that promotes equine-assisted therapies and safe activities for children with special needs and at-risk youth. Athena chooses to unwind by reading a well-written book or going for a nice run.
