Customer satisfaction is the driving force behind everything we do! We go out of our way to see that each and every client we work with is satisfied with our service. Here are a few examples of what real customers had to say about our real estate expertise and their experiences with Turner Realty!

We contacted several Realtors about a move to the Lincolnton area from California. Turner Realty was the only one to respond with suggestions for our search. We worked with them for more than six months. Im sure at times we tried their patience as we asked question after question and really they had no idea whether it would turn into a sale. We came out in March and found our perfect home in Washington, Georgia. Clay and their staff were terrific throughout and went above and beyond to help us with referrals to contractors to help with repairs. We can wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. Thanks Clay, Mary , and Bonnie.

My lake home had been on the market for sale for two full years without an offer. I made the decision to switch realty companies and chose Turner Realty because I remembered some years ago being impressed with the down to earth professionalism of both Dale and Clay Turner. Within a month, Dale Turner brought me a contract for my home. I was disappointed a few days later when the buyer backed out. Within one week after that let down, Dale brought me another offer, a cash deal, that wanted to close in two weeks, plus, the buyer wanted to purchase my furniture. How could I possibly say no to such a good deal? There was only one problem. With such a quick sale and closing, I had no place to go. I'd been waiting so long for a buyer that I'd pretty much given up my search for another home. I immediately went on looking for homes for sales in the areas I was interested in and when riding down any road I would pay attention to homes for sale. One day I stumbled upon a home I really liked and called Dale to arrange a viewing. The inside was just what I wanted. Dale prepared an offer and believe it or not, the buyer was prepared for a quick closing. To sum it all up, I had the closing on my home that had been on the market for 2 years prior to Dale Turner taking over, on July 2nd, 2015. On July 21st, I had the closing on the new home I had just purchased. All this happened thanks to the diligence and efficiency of Turner Realty. The entire process was simple and smooth thanks to the entire staff. Every phone call was returned immediately, every questioned answered correctly. All had to do was find the right house and show up at the closing. At this point, I don't plan to ever move again, but if I change my mind in the future, I'll most definitely call Turner Realty.

The Turner Realty Team performed a very important purchase for me in just a few days. They were extremely professional, courteous and took the time to listen to what I wanted. Their attention to detail ensured I got before the closing attorney with everything needed to execute the real property purchase. Solid professionals, I look forward to using their services again soon.

We first began working with Clay in February of 2010 inquiring of a home that we thought would be the perfect home for us. It had everything we ever wanted which was a beautiful house, land, pool, and a shop! Clay, Mr. Turner, and Bonnie worked diligently with us over the period of eight months until we got our dream home. We have been waiting for this day for a very long time and could not believe that we were finally close to our jobs and in a location that we could settle down. We are forever grateful for everything that Turner Reality did for us. You made our dreams come true!

When I recently began to look for lake property on Clarks Hill to eventually build a house on I talked with several developers and agents and went with Clay Turner at Turner Realty. Clay kept me in the loop on all aspects of the process via regular emails and phone calls. He was always very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and was able to answer every question I threw his way. I especially appreciated his "after the deal closed" second mile steps he took. He was very personably and thorough in the entire experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for real estate in the area.

Dr. Charles Stone

Clay is an easy-going, fun person to work with. His knowledge of the Lincoln County lake property market and genuine interest in our needs and desires made buying our property a fantastic experience. Clay was patient, extremely attentive,and offered sound advice during the entire process. We couldn't be happier with our investment or with the service we received from Clay. We would certainly recommend Clay Turner and Turner realty to others.

Lee, Renee, and Brandon Collins

Carole, Jason and I would like to thank you for all your help in buying our first home. We couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent. Please extend our appreciation to everyone at Turner Realty. We also wanted to thank you for the lunch you provided during the move as well as the housewarming gift. Love,

Jason and Erin Bailey

It's been a couple of weeks since we closed on our lake lot but I wanted to let you know that from my point of view everything went smoothly. Thanks for doing an excellent job of marketing and selling our property. If I ever hear of anyone looking for property in that area, I'd be happy to refer them to Turner Realty. Thanks Again,

Harry Ralph

We found Clay Turner completely by accident on the internet. He was a realtor for another company at the time and immediately stepped in to help us with our relocation. He was extremely patient in showing us with our relocation. He was extremely patient in showing us as many houses as we wanted to see, and he took the time to listen to our needs and find us exactly the house we wanted. When the time came to sell, we called him again. He had since started his own comapany, Turner Realty. He gave us a great comparative market analysis and advice on marketing our home. Within six days, we had a full price offer! Clay is a native of the CSRA and brings a lot of knowledge about both the area and real estate to every transaction. He's also a great guy to spend time with, and if we ever move there again, we won't work with anyone else.

Karin Michelussi

Clay and Bonnie spent a lot of time on us so that when we got there and met with him we saw everything available. Clay drove us around until we found the lot we wanted even though it was FSBO. He worked with the seller and with us. Clay recommended several people to us for various needs and continues to answer questions and be a resource for us even though the deal is done. Thanks Clay, can't wait to retire!

When it comes to lake property in the CSRA Clay Turner and Turner Realty are only way to go. Lake property has so many features that determine value, i.e. location, view of the water, depth of the water,docks, septic systems and much more-these people understand all these determinates of value. True story, I met Clay after I had sold my old lake house, by-owner. I thought my selling price was top of the market -- turns out it was worth TWICE what I sold it for -- and I had to learn that the hard way! I have used Clay on several other lake properties in the last 12 months, I have no doubt that his marketing and knowledge of lake property made it happen. Doesn't matter if you are buying for selling-these people are experts when it comes to lake property.

Michael C. Shelton

Clay continues to be an exceptional professional in his field. My husband and I were very impressed with his diligence and devotion to us as our real estate agent in the selection and buying of our home. We were so delighted with Clay that we are using his services again as we search for additional property. We highly recommend Clay to our friends and family without any hesitation.

Kenny and Kimberly Brown

Clay did an outstanding job handling the sale of our house. From preparing it to go on the market (while I was working 200 miles away in another state), to the closing, he always knew the answer, or the source for getting it done. I recommend him highly to anyone selling a home. Good job and thanks Clay!

Mike Vinson

We met Clay through the internet and it turned out to be the most positive real estate transaction we've had. We were buying our third house when we found Clay, and we were pretty specific about what we wanted in a house. Clay was extremely good at finding houses that matched what we wanted and was more than willing to show us as many houses as we wanted to see until we found the right one. He gave us excellent advice on the area and home values and we had every faith in his ability to find us the right house. And he did! The house we bought was more than we could have hoped for and we loved it from the minute we saw it. Clay made the whole process easy and we would highly recommend him to anyone. We had to sell our Georgia dream house after only a year, and the only person we called was Clay. He put together a great market comparison for us and set a price on the house that was extremely fair. We got a full price offer in six days! We have the utmost faith in Clay's knowledge of the real estate market in the CSRA and it paid off for us. He's a terrific realtor to work with and we count him as a friend.

David and Karin Michelussi

Clay has done a great job with finding exactly what I was looking for in a home. He is organized, knowledgeable, and friendly. Clay is very willing to work within your schedule throughout the entire process. I would recommend him to anyone.

Alice Pyle

Clay, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for the services that you and Turner Realty have provided me in marketing my lots at Plantation Point. I am currently working on a project in Sydney, Australia, which makes handling a real estate transaction extremely difficult given the physical distance from Augusta, Ga. And the time difference of 14 hours. It was essential for me to have a Realtor that I could communicate with via e-mail to handle this transaction because of the circumstances. You have done a great job of communicating with me via e-mail as we worked through the details of the transaction. You have also provided me a good assessment on the value of my lots through your knowledge of the area and your uunderstanding of the rules and regulations imposed by the Army Corps of Engineers. The PDF document service that you have provided has also been great for transmitting required documents including agency agreements and offers. I initially worked with your Dad at Turner Realty when I bought the lots at Plantation Point. The service that he provided in the initial purchase was outstanding as well. Please give him my best.

John Stevenson

My wife and I were looking for a lot at Clarks Hill. We contacted Clay from the information on the Realty Sign and he immediately came out and met with us. He was very professional and knowledgable about the lots in Plantation Point. Clay was very helpful in making the decision we made. He provided us with all the information about the Subdidvision and the future development.The entire process, from contract to closing went as we were told, without any problems or delays. It was a pleasure to have worked with Clay at Turner Realty. He still keeps us informed and helpful with our plans to build.

Bobby and Emily Strozier

We considered purchasing property on Strom Thurmond Lake for almost two years. We worked with Dale for about the last year of our search. Dale is very knowledgeable of the properties available and patiently assisted us during our search. His accurate assessment of each property gave us confidence to choose a property that fit our needs. We would recommend Dale to anyone who is considering a real estate purchase at the lake.

Parker and Linda Rahn

I decided to sell my beautiful lot at Savannah Bay because I eventually plan to move back to Texas and it would be too far away to visit regularly. It is on the deep water side and has a new dock. There are many real estate agents in the area and I did not know any of them. Based on a recommendation by a friend who knows everyone in the area (Bernie Hamby), I chose Turner Realty. I worked with Dale and listened to his advise. He successfully sold my lot a couple of days ago and negotiated a deal I was happy with. It also sold much sooner than I expected, given the economy. It was a very pleasant experience for me and I would work with Dale again if given the chance. I would highly recommend Turner Realty to anyone!

Marsha A. Clark

Clay, My husband Louis and I would like to express our deepest appreciation to you and Turner Realty for your part in making our pending retirement dream come true! When we contacted you at the beginning of the year regarding a home we were interested in seeing in Lincolnton, we had no idea that the entire purchase process from purchase offering to closing could happen so quickly, certainly not within 45 days! The recent purchase of our retirement dream home could not have happened for us without the level of knowledge and real estate expertise you demonstrated. The dedicated, respectful, courteous and professional manner in which you facilitated the entire purchase process made our second home-buying experience a very positive and memorable experience! Your tenacity and attention to detail made the over 600 miles between us seamless and stress-free! Honestly! The Hites from West Palm Beach, Florida commend you and Turner Realty on the Five Star real estate service you provide!

Louis and Darlene Murray Hite

My wife and I have bought and sold four properties in the last three years from Dale Turner with Turner Realty. Dale has the knowledge and integrity we appreciate. We'll never use anyone else. Thanks again, Dale, for help us on our recent move.

Dean and Darlene Skinner

We first met Clay when he responded to an e-mail we sent regarding a lake house he had listed on He responded quickly and eagerly. That particular house didn't work out, but after explaining to him what we were looking for he catered to our needs. There were two families involved in this venture, so he had 4 sets of questions to answer and 4 different people to please. He was patient and always took our questions and concerns seriously. If there was a question he didn't know the answer to, he found it out promptly. The house we bought ended up being the second house we looked at, it just took us six months and a few properties later to make our minds up. We love our lake house and look forward to many good times on the lake. Thank you Clay and Turner Realty.
