Knoxville businessman Mike Stevens, owner and President of Mike Stevens Homes, Inc., has been inducted into the Home Builders Association of Tennessee Hall of Fame. This is one of the highest honors awarded by the Home Builders Association of Tennessee.
Stevens has been building homes in Knoxville for more than 40 years and is co-founder and co-chair of the Knoxville charity Labor of Love which has built free homes for veterans, individuals with intellectual disabilities, and for Helen Ash and Ellen Turner (founders of the Love Kitchen in Knoxville). Stevens also has worked on countless Habitat for Humanity homes and volunteered to raise money and build more than 100 homes in Nicaragua.
“There are very few people I know who are more passionate about putting a roof over people’s head than Mike Stevens,” said Dan Mitchell, President of Home Builders Association of Greater Knoxville (HBAGK). “Of course he’s a talented businessman and runs a great company — but his enthusiasm for the building industry extends well beyond that. He literally wants everyone to experience the American Dream of home ownership.”
Stevens served a four-year term on the Tennessee Housing Development Committee and has been active in Home Builders Association at all levels, serving twice as President of HBAGK and as president of the Home Builders Association of Tennessee in 2011. He also is a Life Director for the National Association of Home Builders.
