David Crowe

David Crowe founded Safety 1st Home Inspection in 2007 with a sincere interest in the physical and financial safety of home buyers and sellers. Over the years he has performed thousands of home inspections.

David is licensed by the state of Tennessee (license #601), and certified by the Home Inspectors of Tennessee Association (HITA) and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). Through those organizations, David has earned the Certified Master Inspector and HITA Master Inspector designations. There are no higher designations for home inspectors in Tennessee.

In 2013 David was awarded the Joe Bailey President’s Award in recognition of valuable contributions and outstanding service to the Home Inspectors of Tennessee Association.


David and his wife Brenda live in Knoxville and have five children in their blended family. Given how hard David and Brenda both work, they enjoy escaping to the beach as often as possible and naps.
