Owner/Inspector Chad Hester was born and raised in Middle Tennessee, and attended the University of Tennessee in the Horticulture Program, and Middle Tennessee State University in the Aerospace Program. He brings 20 years of Construction experience to Upper Cumberland Home Inspections, and is State as well as Nationally Certified in Concrete Services. Chad is licensed by the State of Tennessee, and is also member of InterNACHI, and the Upper Cumberland Association of Realtors. With an established relationship with numerous Realtors in the Upper Cumberland area, Chad has quickly developed a reputation for quality service. Chad, his wife Natalie, and their daughter lived in the Franklin, TN area for many years before deciding to move back to Cookeville to be closer to Natalie's family {Mike & Martha Powers}. Settling back into the quaint town of Cookeville has been like going home for their family. There is nothing like seeing people you know and friendly faces every where you go. They are very active in the community and attend Life Church. His wife Natalie works at Gaw-Bernhardt & Associates.
