About Us

Who We Are. . .



C-1, Inc. Property Management, Construction and Consulting began in January 1999 and has been on the move ever since. As a general contractor with the State of Tennessee, we are licensed to participate in residential, commercial and industrial construction projects.  At the company’s inception, we purchased abandoned and foreclosed properties to renovate and sell. As time progressed, we saw an opportunity to fill a niche in the local real estate market—offering affordable housing for persons not yet ready for homeownership. We have proudly renovated hundreds of distressed properties and housed many persons in and around the greater Memphis metropolitan area. Growing tremendously over the years, C-1 has gained the necessary knowledge and experience to handle all types of construction projects. Our customer base has grown greatly through the positive words of satisfied customers.  Now in operation for over a decade, we have expanded our business to include participation in commercial projects as well.  Please see the Company Services portion of our website for a detailed description of all our services.
