PHI HISTORY

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!

OUR TEAM

Brent Scott
Home Inspector / Owner

I am a native of Franklin TN but now live in Manchester. I have been married to my wife Ginger since 1999 and we have four children. We have been the owner/operators of Premier Home Inspection since 2006 and we are locally owned and operated and have preferred that so we can make decisions at a local level. I enjoy playing with my kids and anything outdoors, especially riding my bicycle along the trails of TN.

I enjoy serving people and being able to teach people about their homes.

Premier Home Inspection Staff Member Brent

Tracy Brooks
Business Support Manager

 I have two amazing children; Taylor is 25 and out on his own and Isabelle is 16 and still in high school. My family and I currently live in Hermitage but I grew up in a small farm town in Northeast Iowa and moved to TN when I was 23 years old.

I began my career with Premier in July 2015, I am the Business Support Manager and I absolutely love my job here. Getting to talk to so many different people everyday is exciting. Nothing is ever the same daily and I always have something new to learn. I love the relationships and friendships I have built with agents as well as buyers over the years. I keep our office and day to day operations running smoothly as well as handle inspection needs. In my spare time I love to catch up on sleep and hang with Isabelle looking for our next big adventure around Nashville. We are members of Cornerstone Church in Madison where my daughter and I serve in the Children’s Ministry.

Van Hall
Home Inspector

I grew up in Kentucky and Florida but have been living in Spring Hill since 2006 and I have a daughter who will attend college in Florida soon. I’ve been in the home inspection business since 2007 and started working for PHI in 2011. I’ve always felt good about the work that I’ve done with home inspections and now the same is true about environmental testing. It’s fulfilling to communicate specific information that gives our clients added levels of knowledge and confidence.

Reggie Patton
Home Inspector

I have lived in Rutherford County for the past 27 plus years. I am divorced with a son, Alec, who attends The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I enjoy cooking, attending sporting events, and traveling with my son.
In the early 2000’s I was approached by a co-worker to see if I had interest in becoming a home inspector. I trained at the Home Inspector’s Training Institute and received a certification to perform inspections in the state of Tennessee. I have been inspecting homes in middle Tennessee since 2004.

Having worked for Premier Home Inspection since 2012, I have been fortunate to have the leadership and support of Brent and Ginger Scott in helping me grow into the home inspector that I am today. I enjoy helping my clients gain insight into the conditions of the homes they are purchasing. I feel honored to have a great relationship with the many realtors and others who trust Premier Home Inspection to assist their clients in the home buying process.

David Edens
Home Inspector

Born a “unicorn” native Nashvillian, I grew up here mostly as well. I moved to Jacksonville, Florida when a senior in high school and later met and married Tara in no better a place than church singles department-First Baptist Church! We have a daughter that has started college/working at Chick-fil-a and a son going in 8th grade. We currently reside in Murfreesboro.

I am currently a home inspector for Premier Home inspection and have been so since 2013. I love being a home inspector because I can be mostly independent, get a change of work environments, feel I can contribute much to helping people understand house issue language and I like traveling the beautiful Tennessee countryside. In my spare time, I like spending time with family, going to church, traveling and keeping up with current events.

Derrick Taylor
Home Inspector

I was born in Mississippi, raised in Indiana, and have spent the past 5 years in Napes, FL. I now reside in Mt. Juliet, TN with my beautiful wife and 2 lovely girls. In my free time I like to enjoy the outdoors. My favorite activity is golfing. I have been golfing since I was 5 and plan on golfing until I can no longer walk! My free time at home is spent with my girls and teaching them life skills that will be forever useful.

I have been in the construction industry my entire working career and have a strong passion for helping others. My time spent in Florida was as a Production Manager for a large roofing company. When I moved to Mt Juliet I found my niche in Home Inspections and am excited to be part of the PHI team. I am very excited to be able to call Middle Tennessee my home, and look forward to serving the area for many years to come.
