Hobby: Cycling

Commuting from Roseville? Keep an eye out for Ken who enjoys biking to work twice a week.


This concept is foreign in many CRE firms. Ken removed those divisive office walls to create a collaborative office environment where all information is shared and utilized to benefit clients and their real estate.


Hobby: Backpacking

Ken backpacks all over the world with his wife Melissa. Their favorite: hiking the west coast trail. Their love for backpacking has been shared with the rest of the Turton team with yearly team building hikes.

An early believer in the Urban Core

Ken's niche is in the urban core where he has played an integral part in many of the City's development projects.

"Ken has worked very hard to create his niche as the top broker in Midtown and is well deserving of this title."

A new approach to commercial real estate

Ken Turton founded Turton Commercial Real Estate in January of 2010. Since that time, Turton Commercial has completed transactions totaling over $2Billion in consideration. The firm is regarded by many to be the foremost authority and most effective sales and leasing agents of urban core properties in the Sacramento Region.

A former Senior Vice President at CBRE, Ken started the firm out of his SUV with 10 of the region’s top developers coming with him. Today, Turton Commercial represents three counties, five cities, over a dozen key public agencies and almost every significant urban infill developer in the region.

Renowned for their innovative marketing and proactive client representation, Ken and his teams have leased over 2,000,000 SF of retail and office space, sold over 4,000,000 SF of buildings and sold land resulting in the development of over 3,000 units of market rate and affordable apartment units.

Comprised of many award-winning brokers, Turton Commercial was recognized as best small business in Sacramento in 2022. In addition to their impressive client results, Ken encourages members of his firm to join he and his wife, Melissa, each year to try demanding team experiences backpacking, rafting and/or canyoneering North America’s National Parks.

In their spare time, Ken and Melissa have hiked 35 of the 50 Greatest Hikes in the World and Ken is writing his first book: “Joe Herd: Life Lessons From Backpacking and Other Adventures.”
