About Us

NPI Knoxville

Our Beginning

“After 2 weeks of training at NPI headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska and further onsite training in Tennessee, I opened the National Property Inspections office in Knoxville, TN in 1995. The Knoxville office started out in the early days of property inspections and worked to help educate buyers and real estate professionals to the many benefits of a home inspection. As home inspections grew to be more common in real estate transactions, our office grew to help meet the increased demand and to handle the over 6,000 home and commercial inspections completed in the greater Knoxville area to date.”

- Steve Hancock, Founder

Now Serving East Tennessee
