The California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA) began in 1976 when a group of home inspectors came together to contemplate what this new and emerging profession should become. CREIA has grown incredibly since those early days, but still carries on the original mission. We have always been a group of home inspectors sharing knowledge and experience to improve the quality of home inspections, the home-buying experience, and to protect the home-buying public.
CREIA is the only organization dedicated to the education and professional development of California home inspectors and the protection of California home buyers. Likewise, CREIA is the only organization with a Standards of Practice and professional contracts written specifically to meet California’s unique legal requirements. CREIA is also the only organization where home inspectors in California can join together in monthly meetings throughout the state to network and improve professional skills. CREIA holds the only statewide conference for home inspectors each year here in California. Home inspection is an incredibly demanding and knowledge-intensive profession and CREIA is dedicated to keeping members up-to-date and on top of the profession.
