Volunteer Housing Partnership's goal is to provide quality, safe affordable housing in East Tennessee.

The McSpadden family has been involved in affordable housing in the East Tennessee area for over 80 years. 

After being licensed as an affiliate broker at 18, Mr. McSpadden earned a Bachelor of Science in Real Estate from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in 1984 and began his own real estate career. Mr. McSpadden holds the respected Certified Property Manager (CPM) certificate from the National Association of Realtors, and his firm has received the Accredited Management Organization certificate (AMO) from the Institute of Real Estate Management.
