Kristine Messick, CPI

Kristine Messick has owned and operated Crow’s Nest Home Inspections, LLC since 2003. Her background in home renovations and remodeling gives her a keen eye into the details of home construction. Kristine has performed over 4,000 home inspections and tens of thousands of hours inspecting homes as well as mentoring/teaching field training to many home inspectors. A fourth generation Puget Sound area native, Kristine applies her extensive knowledge of the region into her inspections. When not inspecting or teaching Home Inspector Training classes, Kristine loves traveling (preferably a sunny locale), getting outdoors with her family – boating, camping, hiking, and kayaking. If the sun doesn’t cooperate, you can find her reading or spending time working on her own house.
