Chapter Officers - Meeting Location

Welcome to the Silicon Valley Chapter of ASHI-CREIA

The area served by the Silicon Valley Chapter of CREIA/ASHI stretches 120 miles with almost 4 million residents from San Francisco’s spectacular Golden Gate bridge, to the heart of Silicon Valley, and beyond to the beautiful Monterrey Bay. Companies such as Google, Apple and Hewlett-Packard, as well as financial institutions and other well-known national and international businesses, make their homes here. Some of the richest farming land in the country can be found in this area. The diverse population of the area requires inspectors to inspect manufactured homes, condominiums, and multi-million dollar estates.

Where the median price of a home in the Bay Area is continually rising, home inspections have become an integral part of real estate sales, and the demand for qualified inspectors, both from sellers and buyers has been on a steady increase. The chapter strives to ensure that members maintain high levels of professionalism, knowledge and quality in their reporting. The Silicon Valley Chapter of CREIA/ASHI has played an important role in bringing together the new and seasoned inspector, providing them with education through monthly meetings and seminars.
