Business Support Manager
Business Support Manager, Tracy Brooks grew up in Northeast Iowa but moved to middle Tennessee in 1994. She has two amazing children; Taylor and Isabelle. Tracy joined the PHI team in 2015 and has been keeping the office running smooth ever since.
When she is not juggling phone calls, emails, and scheduling appointments she enjoys reading and catching up on sleep. When asked what the best part of her job is, she stated; “I absolutely love my job. Nothing is ever the same daily. I love the relationships
with our clients and there is always something new to learn.”
In 2004 middle Tennessee was experiencing tremendous growth much like it is today and specifically Rutherford county was opening one new school a year. Brent’s wife, Ginger, was a teacher with Rutherford county at that time and she suggested he should look into doing something real estate related and specifically mentioned appraisals and home inspections. Around that same time a former co-worker of Brent’s contacted him about a home inspection company he was working for north of Nashville and offered him a job. The timing was too perfect to be ignored. Brent spent the next two years learning all he could about the industry and doing inspections all over middle Tennessee. Fast forward two years and legislation passed to require home inspectors to be licensed and insured. Brent and Ginger loved this legislation. It brought professionalism and continuity to the field. Brent and Ginger knew that the requirement of expensive insurances and testing would weed out the industry so they felt the time was right to start their own company, Premier Home Inspection, LLC back “home” in Rutherford county! As they say….the rest is history!
