About Turner & Associates

Established by Ron Turner in 1976, Turner & Associates has played a significant role in the development around Lake Tahoe.  As a small family business, we take pride in serving both Tahoe’s private land owners, businesses and government agencies by providing the best land surveying value in the area.

The Turner family has resided in South Lake Tahoe since 1963.  Ron and Sue Turner moved to Tahoe when it was a sleepy little town with few year-round residents.  They had two sons, Mark and Jeff, both graduates of South Tahoe High School.  After serving in the Air Force, Jeff joined Ron at Turner & Associates in 1988, and the father-and-son team has worked together since.  Jeff is married to Carrie Turner, a local veterinarian, and they have one son.
