Express Permits is a family-owned and operated company that has been in business for nearly 10 years, founded by Steve and Tabitha Todd. As the Production Administrator for a well-known national residential builder, Tabitha spent years as an in-house permit expediter. She consistently ensured all permits were ready, correct and submitted in a timely matter, including managing the house package ordering process for every new home sale. As an executive in the world of telecom, Steve’s key responsibilities included business development and account management with companies of all sizes. Here, Steve learned the principles of excellent customer service and honest relationship management. The pair leveraged this experience, wisdom, and existing relationships with government agencies to create a company that believes in personalized and reliable service. Steve and Tabitha continue to participate in community outreach programs as well as donate time to their local church.  They both are musically inclined and help lead worship services on a weekly basis.
