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.”
Co-Owner & Vice President
“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.”
Ben Turner, a native Oklahoman, has been building homes in the Oklahoma City metro area for over forty years. A 1961 distinguished graduate of the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce at the University of Pennsylvania, Ben worked in the home building industry for several decades before launching First Star Homes, Inc. in 1990. Today, the company has evolved into Turner & Son Homes. Ben is a former director of the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association and is active in the community.
Director of Sales & Marketing
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.
Land and Lending Expert
Jerry, a combat veteran Marine, brings a can-do attitude to each interaction. He helps clients find land where they can build their new custom home. Jerry uses his expertise to assess property for suitable land for building during the Turner & Son home building process.
By building relationships with lenders, Jerry is able to connect each client with the best construction lender for their needs, and ensures that each client understands the building and loan process for their home. He is passionate about helping families achieve their dream of building their own home on their land.
