Professional Experience


Prior to CBRE, Mr. Turner was an award-winning commercial real estate attorney at Procopio Cory Hargreaves & Savitch. For 17 years he served as the firm's Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer. Formerly the leader of the firm's Real Estate Team, throughout his management efforts he actively maintained his broad-based commercial real estate transactional practice. He has handled the acquisition, disposition and exchange of extensive income property and assisted in the planning and development of a wide range of commercial projects. He has also facilitated the transfer of thousands of acres of raw land and addressed extensive related development and environmental issues. Mr. Turner has been involved in forming and advising numerous real estate partnerships and LLCs, negotiating and restructuring various forms of real estate secured financing, and resolving a wide range of real property-oriented disputes and loan workouts. He has had a particular emphasis on commercial leasing matters, from the perspective of both landlords and tenants, including some of the largest transactions in the region. He has a strong background in healthcare facilities, including hospital and medical office buildings, and high tech, biotech and biomedical, having represented dozens of such companies in their facilities transactions. Mr. Turner was previously a partner in the real estate department of Brobeck, Phleger and Harrison.

Career Transition

After a 35+ year career as a commercial real estate lawyer, Mr. Turner has transitioned to the world of commercial brokerage.  Having earned virtually every real estate law award out there, in addition to being recognized with the San Diego Bar Association’s Outstanding Attorney award for his contributions to the community and as California Law Firm Leader of the Year for playing a key role in building San Diego's largest law firm, he is excited about applying the wealth of deal-making knowledge and experience he has gained as a trusted advisor on the legal side to best position CBRE clients for advantageous transactions on the real estate side.
