National Permit Expediters, Inc., formerly known as Permits Unlimited, has provided prompt, professional service to the building industry since 1999.   Formed to serve the rapidly growing Charlotte market, National Permit Expediters has grown from a local startup operation into a national, diversified residential and commercial building permit management service.  In 2006 we expanded our commercial division to the national level to serve architects and contractors around the country.  In 2013, our company was re-branded National Permit Expediters, Inc. to encompass the vision of the nationwide expansion.  We possess vast knowledge of the permitting process in the Charlotte, North Carolina, and surrounding areas as well as the national commercial market.

Suzie Preidt, the founder of National Permit Expediters, has over 19 years of experience in permit expediting.  She started out working for a residential homebuilder as the President’s secretary and moved into the position of starts coordinator.

She has used the knowledge she gained and through hard work, dedication, hands-on experience and a tenacious drive she has developed National Permit Expediters into a thriving business.  Her success is attributed to Biblical business principles, working closely with the building department in providing complete submittal packages and building strong relationships with the building department which in turn benefits our client’s relationship.
