I worked with Len Freeman on my inspection. Relocating a client to the area, Len was very forth coming with information. Did a timely and thorough inspection and took the time to answer questions from the client directly. I highly recommend Len and plan on working with him in the future.

Can't say enough good things about Golden Gate! I've used Jake and Patrick in the last two weeks. I am a real estate agent and was preparing to make offers on both occasions. Golden Gate allowed me to tentatively book appointments both times so that I could present the offers to the listing agents with an appointment scheduled. I was able to book appointments both times just three days away. Inspectors can book up weeks in advance, so this is invaluable. This preparation helped me get both deals for my clients in a very competitive market where buyers are often waiving inspections up front. Jake and Patrick both had the reports back to me in less than 24 hours. The reports are in probably the best format I've seen. They have an interactive online version with tabs and photos that is very user friendly. It's also easy to download a PDF by clicking one button so I can add to the disclosure package. I've also used them for presale inspections as well, which is a great way to give first time homebuyers the comfort of waiving an inspection up front in this highly competitive market. I highly recommend! -- Laura Pallin

I would definitely recommend Golden Gate Home Inspections. They were very professional and courteous on the initial phone call. They were able to meet my needs and schedule timely appointments. They showed up on time and ;provided the reports quickly. I was able to get a follow up call from the inspector to ask some qualifying questions. As I said earlier, definitely a recommendation.

I order quite a few home & pest inspections throughout the year. This was the first time I needed inspections in San Francisco and I found Golden Gate through a Google search. So glad I did! Outstanding customer service and client communications. They are definitely more up-to-speed on using technology in delivering their reports which I love. Jen is the scheduler and she is terrific. I will continue to support this company in the future.

Golden Gate home inspection did a great job! Fast responding to questions and patience to explain everything that you need to know during inspection. Report is easy to understand. My inspector Jake came in on time and very nice to go over step by step with my sister what to do to fix/ maintain the house. Reasonable price. Highly recommend and will use them in the future. Thanks. GGHI!

Great customer service, was able to contact both the customer service rep and the inspector with ease. They anticipated the inspector be there for 2 hours but Len, the inspector, ended up staying for 3! We were unable to meet him in person but we were able to call him afterwards to go over his findings.Extremely thorough report with many pictures and recommendations. There is an online version where you can enlarge the photos as well as a PDF version for sharing. This company is on the more expensive end of inspections but I would definitely recommend if you are looking for something very thorough and detailed. A++

I had a great experience with Golden Gate home inspections, the detailed reports on general, roof and pest inspections were crucial in the price negotiation for my property as we were able to get a few additional things fixed before the purchase. In addition, it was very helpful to get all inspections scheduled with the same company in the same day and with just a 24-hour heads-up right before the Christmas (We needed to move fast with the offer).

Jake and team were very professional and checked that there were no major problems with the apartment, which included any safety hazards, basic electrical and water functioning, all appliances, alarms, HVAC, and any possible moisture intrusion or other problems. In the end, I received a nice report with all observations and recommendations, and pictures of all inspections, that I can keep with me to reference later.Update (12/12/20): After moving in, I realized that the bathtub has a low spot in the middle that holds water and does not drain. There was a stain in the tub that should have been a hint. This is not super easy to repair. Apart from this, I have not found any other problems so far.

Really impressed. I figured since they were a chain that they would have someone unknowledgeable come out, but because they were so well-reviewed, I gave them a chance (realtor recommended them for our inspection contingency). Not only did the inspector do a really good job, but their reporting style is phenomenal. An added bonus was that they ID'ed all the appliances in the house and identified how much usable lifetime was left on all of them, which will help us to determine whether we want the house warranty or not.

I saw one of their inspection reports when considering one of the properties they've inspected and was impressed by the photos, detail, and overall report structure that made it really thorough but also super easy to digest (unlike many other inspection company reports I've seen in San Francisco). So I asked my realtor to hire them to do my Buyer inspection on another property and Jake was assigned to us and he was incredibly helpful and patient. He addressed all of my concerns with detail and constructive advice, great experience overall! Highly recommend GGH!

To start with, Chris was fantastic in getting me an appointment during a period where inspections were in high demand. He not only did answer the phone after business hours, but he went beyond and above to accommodate me and my client.
Jake was the inspector that came to the property, and he was great to work with. He did the inspection in detail and thoroughly.
He worked diligently to inform me and my client and make sure that we understood the entire process.
The report came quickly, with such a friendly interface. So neat, easy to use, and to understand.
And to have them available to answer any questions we had, was a huge plus.
Two thumbs up for Jake and Chris.

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.

Chris Black had inspected two properties that I was involved with and was very thorough on both. In my opinion, he went above and beyond. He briefed me after the inspection and answered all of my questions. I would highly suggest Golden Gate Home Inspection.

These guys are great! Always reliable, quick turnarounds and their reports are some of the most in depth ones I've seen in the RE industry. Gone are the days of waiting 7 days to get your report back- these guys even offer a website portal for the report for easy sharing / mobile friendly, just fantastic!

Very impressed with this inspection service. They were more expensive than others in the area but definitely worth the extra cost. DJ walked me through my property for nearly four hours and scrutinized every nook and cranny of the house with expert precision. He notably has particularly deep knowledge in electrical systems and HVAC. He then reviewed which issues actually needed attention, which were lower in priority, which were DIYable, and gave advice on how to address them. I then got a very nicely laid out report with pictures, videos, and findings that did not look like they came out of a cookiecutter like other reports I've seen. DJ shows passion in his work and I'd recommend him to anyone that wants to learn all about their property and be ready to care for it.

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.

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.
