Sabia Construction was built from the passion, experience, vision, and versatility of its Principal, C.J. Sabia.  A native Nashvillian, C.J. began his journey to being a custom builder when he was a young man, receiving recognition for his achievements in the visual arts, architecture, leadership, and an interest in engineering and construction.    C.J. graduated with a degree in Supply Chain Management from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  Upon graduation, C.J. began his career in residential construction as a project manager.  Understanding the career path and checkpoints, C.J. set his sights on owning his own company.  In his usual methodical, but unique approach, he identified the areas in which he needed expertise in order to begin and sustain a successful residential construction company.  He checked every role off of his list in both corporate and small business settings – project management, estimating/ purchasing, operations management, and warranty, all the while learning best practices, and Sabia Construction was born.


As a young man, C.J.’s eye for detail and differentiation was evident, as was his love for architecture and creative endeavors.  Always interested in many subjects, C.J.’s versatility in knowledge and ability is one of his greatest strengths, and coupled with a friendly demeanor, his ability to connect the dots between seemingly unrelated or related subjects, while being able to convey the high-level facts or intricate details, positions him to be an effective leader for his clients’ projects. 


C.J. and his wife, Leslie, have been married for 12 years and have 2 year old fraternal twins, Lindie and Fletcher, and 13-year old Lab/ Shepherd mix, Kasper.  In his down time, C.J. spends his time with his family, playing golf, fly fishing, fly tying, trail running, or building something in his workshop for his clients’ projects or his own family home.  C.J. also likes to dabble in art and attend concerts. 


C.J. has also supported his community through volunteering with The First Tee of Middle Tennessee, Young Life Nashville, and Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County and Davidson County.
