David Trent | Licensed Home Inspector
David Trent | Home Inspector


“I have been a Knoxville resident my entire life. My wife, Sherron, and I have been married for 38 years and we have two married daughters and eight grandchildren who all live in the Knoxville area.”

What I like about being a home inspector:

“Buying a home is a big investment, but it doesn’t have to be a big risk. I enjoy assisting clients to have the most in-depth understanding of the condition of the home they are buying. And, to provide tips on how to maintain their new home to make sure it stays in good condition.”
