After the completion of his college studies, he stayed in Vermont and was involved in running a bar for some time. He shifted to New York after a few years and started working in an advertising agency. Author Turner held the post of a copywriter in a number of advertising agencies in Manhattan and also won several awards for his work. After spending many years in this line of work, he decided to undergo a radical change and shifted his focus to commercial real estate. This job landed him in Palm Beach after several years, where he bought, renovated, and sold plots and houses.

On one occasion, Turner visited Charleston, South Carolina in order to attend a wedding. He fell in love with the charm of the place so much that he decided to move there permanently.
