Matt is a licensed Home Inspector in the State of Washington.  He took over ownership of Pacific Crest Inspections in January of 2022 and has inspected hundreds of properties since joining the company in 2016.  Matt graduated from Bellingham Technical College with a degree in Engineering in 2012.

Matt’s passion is cars …. and has been since he was a little guy. He has always had a eye for mechanical things, great attention to detail and loads of patience. He would take things apart around the house and put them back together. He has had many Subaru’s that he has built from the ground up and more recently is working on classic Datsun’s. He enjoys restoring these cars; he recently finished a 1979 Datsun 620 and is currently working on a 1970 Datsun 510.  We are excited to have Matt join our team!

Kristen Bunzel runs the office and most likely is the voice you hear on the phone. She has over ten years customer service experience and a background in marketing. If you hear a little voice in the background that would be Elliot her assistant!
