Testimonials

Probably the hardest thing my husband and I have accomplished in the past few years is selling and buying a home at the same time in this current climate! Working first with Ray, then Debbie, and all along the way with Elizabeth was a pleasure. Ray has foresight, energy, knowledge and always made the process as fun as he could. Debbie's direction on how to stage our home was invaluable and I still use some of her secrets to make my home look better organized and stylish. As for Elizabeth, if I ever need someone to run my business, I will be stealing her! There wasn't a single second when she wasn't ON TOP of everything. She had answers for us every time we asked a question. She almost instantly replies to emails any time of the day. And, on top of that she's a friendly, upbeat person. Turner Real Estate is extremely lucky to have her attention to detail and wonderful attitude.
Audrey Dombroski- Seller and Buyer
Ray Turner was the best realtor I have ever worked with. I have bought and sold homes in four states from 1982 - 2021 and NO ONE comes even close to Ray Turner. My fellow worker Audrey recommended him and I had no idea he would be as good as he was. Most importantly, he will tell you what will work and what you have to do to sell you home. I stuck to and did exactly what he recommended to do and our home sold for full asking price. He even got my wife and I a heart felt gift at closing. If you want to sell your home and you want the best...YOU MUST CALL RAY!!
Richard Platt-Seller
We recently sold a home with Turner Real Estate Network. Ray, Debbie and Elizabeth were phenomenal to work with throughout the process. They know the market and how to get the job done with the results you are looking for. They took amazing pictures when listing the home which I know increased the amount of showings that we had. Ray provided us with great market research that helped us price the home appropriately and we got full asking price based off of Ray’s recommendations. Ray does not spin tales and make promises that are not likely to happen. We listed thru them and largely just let them do their job and they did it extremely well. I would highly recommend Turner Real Estate Network. Thanks Ray, Debbie and Elizabeth!
Zeb Holliday - Buyer and Seller
Professional, knowledgeable, driven and passionate are a few of the words I would use to describe the Turner Real Estate Team. Ray and Elizabeth worked diligently to find us a home that "checked all the boxes" in a very difficult real estate market. Just as important, after the sale, they made available a network of professionals who have been helping us make the house a home.

I cannot say enough about the counsel provided before, during and after the home buying process! I have and will continue to highly recommend the Turner Real Estate Network. A class outfit!
Scott Loretan - Buyer
We took a leap of faith moving from MN to FL, not knowing exactly what to expect and where we would find our new place called "home." We experienced great distress working with a realtor for a few months. A friend then directed us to Ray. He was our saving grace and gave us hope! After hearing our story and the problems that were occurring, Ray aggressively took action to gather the resources and support we needed. It wasn't long and we were in our new home, and could finally take a breath. This market is crazy! Ray did everything he could to make it happen! He and Debbie are genuine, kind, humble, and hard working people! We are so thankful and blessed that God directed us to them, because I don't know where we would be right now. Probably in a different state. :) I would highly recommend working with the Turner Real Estate Team! You won't be disappointed!
Jodi Smith- Buyer
I just purchased a condo in Sarasota and had an amazing experience with the Turner Real Estate Network. They were diligent and thorough and helped me find the perfect place. I respect the valuable input from Ray Turner throughout the process and I highly recommend this firm for future real estate needs.
Brian Lazarus - Buyer
I am thrilled to have used Turner Real Estate Network to sell my condo in Sarasota. The entire team was super professional and a pleasure to work with. As my Realtor, Fabrizio Uberti-Bona represented my best interests and was always available to answer my questions. His negotiating skills helped me get top dollar for my apartment. Elizabeth, also of Turner RE, worked tirelessly to help make the entire process seamless. Elizabeth’s customer service was always impeccable and top-notch. I have bought and sold many properties over the years and I can confidently say that Fabrizio and Elizabeth are my dream team! I would highly recommend this team of professionals!
Angeles Vidal- Seller
Ray and Debbie expressed tremendous professionalism and Knowledge, they are true experts in their field and guided me with class through the entire buying and selling process. They are honest and transparent with everything, If a problem arose they always had a solution at hand. Elizabeth was on top of everything, and always 10 steps ahead. Through all my years of buying real estate I have never come across more passionate and friendly people. There was a real friendship developed and I will use them for ALL my transactions in the future. I HIGHLY recommend Turner real estate team!
Butch Greene - Seller and Buyer
Debbie & Team are Life Savers!

Debbie and her team's responsiveness, professionalism and overall caring nature is a breathe of fresh air! She helped our family find our new home in Bradenton, FL and provided great guidance on where to look for our young family who is coming from Massachusetts with regard to schools, shopping etc,. Back in late December, we traveled to FL to visit the area and spent 2 full days with another realtor. That realtor never responded to any of our calls/texts after our visit. Such a waste of time. We quickly had to find another, as the relocation process and current market is chaotic. That's when we met Debbie! As many know right now, the market is complete chaos. Nevermind relocating a family 1400 miles away. Debbie was always just a call, text or email away. There were never any balls dropped! It was a great feeling knowing we had Debbie on our side being so far away, as she would be able to conduct video tours on a whim for us, or provide feedback on a property without us physically seeing the property. I'd fully recommend her and her company to friends and family!
Lisa Cambra - Buyer
Turner Real Estate Network is, and without question, the hardest working real estate agents that we have done business with. Ray and Debbie were consistent with their communication. They did what they said they would do, and meant what they said! My wife and I left Minnesota for a better life in Florida to raise our family. Turners found us the perfect home, and really listened to what we needed. As with any used home, it needed some work. Ray and Debbie were super, above and beyond helpful with sourcing carpenters and painters, They even overseen most of it! Who does that? Turners do!. Having them advocate for us to make sure our move went smoothly was truly a breath of fresh air. Not knowing who to hire ourselves, it was nice to have Ray's little black book of trusted sources! Finally, Elizabeth made sure our closing went smoothly and helped gather everything that was needed. 5 Stars because 6 isnt an option!
Matt Smith- Buyer
I have bought and sold 17 homes in my lifetime. Some real estate experiences were good and some not so good! Working with Debbie Turner was an easy and wonderful experience. She did so much leg work and kept us always in the loop. She is knowledgeable as well constantly on top of things. Often sending us information and pictures.
I have recommended her to others (one who already bought their home through Debbie) and will continue to recommend her. We love our current home and could not have closed on it if it were not for her.
Judd Sloane- Buyer
These guys definitely have a passion for what they do and you can tell that they love their job and the services they provide. They are knowledgeable, have resources if needed, and are wonderful about showing homes on your schedule. Couldn’t have asked for a better agency. They care about their clients and I recommend Turner Real Estate to anyone looking to buy or sell. Elizabeth was an absolute pleasure to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. As for Debbie and Ray, you can tell they really care about their clients as individuals and that they put their heart and soul into their work. They are thorough, professional and great to work with. The entire Turner team is honest and forthright- no games. After dealing with several other companies in the area and being disappointed, I felt lucky to find Turner Real Estate!
Jessica Rothenbach - Buyer
We highly recommend Turner Real Estate Network to anyone who wants the best. They made it possible for our home to sell so quickly and without delays. They are always available and utilize the most current practices and technology in their work. Above and beyond standards.
Bill & Annette Davis, Sellers
Ray was recommended to me when my wife and we decided to sell our home in order to build a new home. Ray was GREAT! His knowledge of the market and pricing was spot on! Our home sold in 12 hours... He then represented us during the building of our new home in Riverside Preserve in Bradenton. Ray helped bridge the gap between the builder and the customer (us). He even helped us move in after closing! I can not say enough how he made a stressful process go as smoothly as possible. Great guy, great team, and I will use them for all of my Real Estate needs going forward!
Kraig Kunkle - Buyer & Seller
Debbie and Elizabeth are beyond without a doubt the best Realestate team on the planet. I can’t even explain how they went above and beyond in ever way shape and form. Extremely knowledgeable, quick to respond and very professional. Not only did we get lucky to have them but we will probably be lifelong friends after this. If you want the best team on earth look no further.
Sean Sedlmeier - Buyer
I cannot say enough great things about Ray and Elizabeth - they were wonderful to work with. My 21 year old daughter was purchasing her first home and they were there to help her navigate every turn always having her best interest at heart. If you are looking for a professional, organized and truly competent real-estate team that goes above and beyond, look no further.
Jennifer Jodoin - Buyer
I've recommended Elizabeth and the team at Turner Real Estate Network to everyone I know! She is a true and kind professional. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better team. Thank you for being so responsive and knowledgeable in our endeavors!
Alyssa Morgenson - Buyer
From a lender's point of view, it was a pleasure working with Ray and Elizabeth at Turner Real Estate Network. Both of them were organized, responsive, and kept great communication throughout the purchase process. They were both ready to roll up their sleeves and get involved in whatever task was needed to be taken on. The best part what the fact that they kept our buyers in the loop from day one until the closing day. Great experience all around. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Carlos with Mortgage Pro's
Marketing Materials and Photos of our home were Excellent! Debbie was great at communicating with showings,etc!
The Chinault Family, Sellers
My husband and I moved from St Louis, Mo with very little information regarding the different neighborhoods in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. Debbie and Ray Turner gave us excellent advice as new retirees to the area. We ended up buying in a Bradenton neighborhood which suits our needs perfectly! It’s our Florida dream home and Debbie and Ray were delightful to work with. We highly recommend putting your home search in their capable hands!
Kathy Olk, Buyer
My experience with Ray Turner was the absolute BEST! The entire team was excellent, and I would definitely recommend them to others and come back to Ray in the future! Ray was especially good at negotiating the contract.
Kenny Gordon, Seller and Buyer
Ray listened and answered any questions. He kept me informed. He expertly guided me through the whole process. As a new widow, it was very important for me to have Ray, Debbie and staff helping me. The whole time I felt that I was working with efficient, knowledgeable, compassionate people. Many thanks, friends!
June Aikman, Seller and Buyer
I was fortunate to work with Debbie while searching for my retirement home. She is extremely knowledgeable and hardworking. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Sharon, Buyer
We have had a wonderful experience with Turner Real Estate Network. The whole process of selling our home went smoothly from start to finish. The team is very professional and up to date with all aspects of the process and they were always one step ahead. Our expectations were exceeded indeed.
The Davis Family, Sellers
Debbie has been a joy to work with! She is completely professional, knowledgeable and diligent. She can also keep things light during what can be a stressful time with her awesome personality. Our home sold in just 4 days! I would highly recommend Debbie to anyone!
Jennifer & David Dean, Sellers and Buyers
Debbie is the ultimate professional, but her biggest asset is she LISTENS. She learns your likes and dislikes during conversations with you. She then shows you homes that you need to look at. She is organized and thorough, even taking notes at our walk-through because she knew we were too excited to remember it all. Absolutely the best!
Judy & Jack Hansberry, Buyers
I would recommend Debbie if you are buying or selling your home. She is passionate about her profession and compassionate toward her clients. Anyone who works with Debbie has found a friend for life!
Ursula Camp, Seller and Buyer
After trying buy-owner…we handed of the property to Debbie. Less than one week we had a signed contract above asking price!!! Debbie stayed on top of the entire processing understanding time lines and buyer/seller emotions. I highly recommend her and her team for a quick and correct closing.
Robert Fetterman, Seller and Buyer
I hired Debbie and team at Turner Real Estate Network to list my property for two very good reasons. First, I watched her company grow and the attention that she gave to her sellers and their properties was something that was very important to me. Second, because their level of marketing and connectivity to their peers is bar none to anyone else I have see in the Manatee/Sarasota area. Debbie goes above ad beyond for her clients.The Turner Real Estate Network is a fantastic group that keep you informed and educated every step of the way! Team Work makes the Dream Work! Bravo to you all and thank you for such a easy transaction and transition!
Leslie Weed- Seller
Great team! We love working with everyone at Turner. Whether it is business relationship, purchase of a new home or selling your property, you can't ask for better representation with this knowledgeable and friendly team.
Lucie Oberg- Vendor
My husband and I found our DREAM HOME with Debbie and Ray. They made the impossible possible every step of the way. They are true, down-to-earth professionals and highly knowledgeable in every aspect of real estate. They love the industry and it truly shows. Their staff is top notch, caring and always available to assist when we called. It was the best experience ever to work with such an amazing team. They have ulimited resources and relationships with the best vendors to help with everything. Ray and Debbie also had the listing to sell our home as well and we were faced with a not-so-experienced Keller Williams agent who represented a not-so-friendly buyer. No matter what difficulties and ridiculous requests they regularly received from the agent all the way to the closing date, Debbie and Ray handled it with style and grace. They were totally dedicated and committed to bringing the transaction to closure. Look no further....this is the TEAM you want to represent you. Thanks again Ray, Debbie and Team. You are the tops!!!
Dawn Toscano- Seller and Buyer
Debbie, Ray, and their team are amazing. They helped my husband and I find our first house our family. Finding a house is stressful and hard, but Turner Real Estate made it very easy for my husband and I. Debbie helped me choose an area where the schools were rated very well for our daughter. Debbie, Ray, and their team treated us like family. Many family members and friends have sold house through Turner Real Estate. I would highly recommend Turner Real Estate.
Kara Carrano- Buyer
Turner Real Estate Network has been a dream to work with. They helped us find what we were looking for and went above and beyond for us. They understood we were in a time crunch because our lease was ending and they worked with us everyday until we found the perfect spot. I would definitely use them again but I don't think we'll ever want to leave our new place. Thank you Turner Real Estate Network.
Vjeko Cimera- Buyer
I had the pleasure of working with Debbie and her team on both the buying and
selling side! Her experience and professionalism was invaluable to me in the
process of buying and selling! She was always the voice of reason and navigated
the rough waters of negotiation- a constant buffer to finalize the sale! I am forever grateful for her expertise and kindness!
Kim W. - Buyer and Seller
Working with the team at Turner Real Estate Network made buying my house a breeze. From the showings, to creating the offer terms, to scheduling inspection and all the way through to closing there was strong communication and commitment to excellence. Highly recommend!
Kelly S. - Buyer
When it comes to working with real estate agents and their teams, it's hard to find any better than Ray and Debbie Turner, and the Turner Real Estate Team. It's always a pleasure working with Ray, Debbie, and Elizabeth. Their industry knowledge, professionalism, and most of all kindness for others is what separates them from the pack. I cannot speak highly enough about the Turner Real Estate Team....Highly Recommended!
