Golden Gate Home Inspections deserves more than 5 stars! I was lucky to find them on Yelp based on their top ratings, and decided to work with them, despite the fact another Inspection company that I contacted (Bay Area Home Inspections) told me to "stay away from Golden Gate Home Inspections". I found that kind of "back stabbing" unethical and decided to talk to Golden Gate Home Inspections anyway. Chris (the owner I think) is one of the most knowledgeable, friendly and responsive contractors that I've talked to and gave me a lot of details regarding what the inspection would entail as this was the first time that I was buying a house.The inspector, DJ is a top-notch professional. He is thorough, articulate, detail-oriented and patient. He checked over 100 items in the house, and patiently explained many details to us during the inspection. He turned around a very thorough report within 6 hours knowing that we were anxiously waiting for it. Thank you, thank you and thank you, Chris and DJ! Best wishes for a thriving business, you deserve it!

We were purchasing our first home and wanted to have our own inspection done. The report was easy to read with colors to highlight the more serious items (red), and ready the day after the inspection. 10/10 would recommend this service to anyone buying a home!

I was lucky to find Chris to help me with a quick turnaround inspection. He was responsive and easy to work with on scheduling, explaining the procedures before the job was booked and providing details and timely responses after the job was complete. I also found his price more reasonable compared to the other quotes I received. Will definitely use their service again in the future!

DJ, our Home Inspector, was absolutely great! He took a lot of time and energy to walk through the property with my clients explaining every detail step by step. I was also very impressed with Jen, who works with scheduling. She was extremely efficient and responsive in getting our preferred inspection time scheduled. Golden Gate Home Inspections is extremely professional, accommodating and reasonable compared to other home inspection companies.

DJ and Golden Gate Home Inspectors did an amazing job, the sellers report of the property in question was hiding lots of problems and gave me a much better understanding of what renovations were needed. They also provided General Contractors contact information to get price quotes for the property. Efficient, clear, and very helpful with an older property.

Outstanding and reliable.

Personalized service, flexible with schedule, responsive with phone calls and emails, and they designed their portal which gives you a clear, easy to understand report with photographs, and color-coded recommendations.

The type of service from Golden Gate Home Inspections is what I like to call a 360 customer-oriented service. From the initial call, a follow-up email with a quote, a personalized text message with a reminder of the inspection day, a very professional and empathetic team (especially to first-time homeowners), and most importantly, the delivery format of the report in a customized portal reliable and easy to understand made me feel a significant level of support during the crucial moments of deciding whether or not you purchase this home.

A company with business integrity that provides you with trust from the very first moment. I called many places; my feeling was that they only want your money and don't care much about your concerns. They want to charge you way too much and try to up-sell you extra stuff. Chris, who I believe is the owner of GGHI after he figured that I was quite inexperienced in this matter, he immediately explained what the most critical aspects someone should see in a home before committing to do the purchase are. He cared about my money, Instead of trying to upsell another service, he said, "Let me take a look a that first, and then I'll tell you if you need to hire this additional inspection." i.e., Termites.

It's hard to find vendors who understand and value customers today, and especially in San Francisco. Chris understands the level of stress that a buyer is going through before purchasing a home. Therefore, after the inspection, he makes sure to explain to you what could hurt your wallet. The top things to watch out, the top things the home is doing great, and the potential cost of small details that would help you create an excellent judgment of the home state and if it is a go or a no go. In the end, this is our goal if the home is in conditions, if there are aspects that would cause me a tremendous among of money to fix and what are the things that I can fix on a small budget but not a hazard to my health or wallet. GGHI makes sure you get this right.

WATCH OUT! - It doesn't matter what San Francisco sellers or agents tell you about reducing contingencies to get the offer approved by the owner. Disregard that, if a homeowner or seller does not want to accept it what it is fundamentally your right, move on to a different home where the seller has better integrity. You have to do your inspection even though the seller already has provided you with one from his own.

Always get your inspection. I'll recommend going for GGHI; Chris would be a great partner that would help you make a diligent decision, which by the way, the delivery format and level of detail between the inspection from GGHI and the one made by the seller, its years light unbeatable.

Thank you, GGHI; you guys help me moving forward with my purchase.

This was impressive, fast, and professional. This was a thorough home inspection as I've seen. Chris and Jake were very knowledgeable and professional throughout the process.
I was impressed with the level of detail in the report, particularly the aging of depreciated items such as hot water heaters, electrical, and roofs. Also, Chris follows up with us to be sure if anything needed or questions.

The inspector from Golden Gate was really great. I was nervous to find out what was going on with my house, but I’m finally glad I did. I had a feeling the house had shifted due to some recent small earthquakes and the heavy rain this winter season. The inspector, David, was very easy to meet and talk with about the issues he found with my house's foundation. He was straightforward and didn't try to sell me extra services, so he gained my trust. I feel confident about the repairs needed. The inspection wasn’t the cheapest one I found, but they put me at ease with their reliable communication before we met and followed through with a thorough report after we'd met, so it was money well spent. I’d recommend this company to my friends.

We needed a quick turnaround on our home inspection due to a 7 day contingency and they were able to get us scheduled and then turned around a detailed report quickly. And we loved that they used a drone and the thermal imaging thingy. It kind of saw things we would have never noticed. They made us feel so much more comfortable with making our purchase. On top of that DJ was so knowledgeable that we learned a lot. Definitely recommend!
