About Evan

Evan Turner has grown up around the home building and real estate business his entire life. Evan is in his second year working with the company and is handling the Operations and Accounting for Turner Legacy Homes. One of his most important accomplishments to date with our company is his involvement in getting us online with Builder Trend. This is an app that our clients use to log in from wherever they are and check progress on their home while it’s under construction. Clients love it because they can see pictures of what’s going on, and keep tabs on the schedule and costs.

Evan graduated from Maclay High School in Tallahassee, FL, and now attends Gulf Coast State College part-time majoring in Business Administation. He is engaged to Tiffany Ward and in his spare time he enjoys fitness training, playing a little golf, college football and basketball, going to the beach, and being with friends and family.

Green Building

If you are concerned about sustainability and having a green home is important to you, then you’ll be happy to know that Doug is a certified member of the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC). The FGBC standard includes eight categories: energy, water, lot choice, site, health, materials, disaster mitigation, and general (i.e. renewables, adaptability, etc.). The program has resulted in an average of 15 percent savings in electricity consumption and a 20 percent reduction in water use per household over code compliant buildings. Ask how your Florida Green Certified Home can result in lower energy costs, lower water bills, improved indoor air quality, increased durability, easier maintenance, and enhanced profitability of resale.
