Dave was very through and informative. Didn't mind us "watching over his shoulder" and answering any questions we had! Got our inspection to us in a timely manner and was more that accommodating with the schedule we were working with. All around was a great experience. Came highly recommended and we would highly recommend as well! Thank you Dave!!!

I love David's style with my buyers. He sits down and really explains the findings and what they mean. He doesn't rush the process. He is great!

David was quick and very accommodating.
- P.F., February 2016
Thanks so much - everything from the timely arrival to the thorough report was extremely professional. I appreciate all of the suggestions and tips you provided to improve the filtering of air in my home.

David was highly recommended to me and when I asked him to inspect a condo I am about to purchase, I had the opportunity to observe the thorough process of his home inspection. I was very impressed by his work and knowledge. David began the inspection at the outside of the home, followed by the inside of the home. He inspected the entire home from wall to wall, including the flooring, windows, doors and fireplace. He inspected all appliances and built-ins and took many photos throughout the inside of the home as well as the outside. He followed up the inspection with his recommendations for changes or repairs, for now and in the future. He further followed up with a very detailed report including all the photos and recommendations. This report is an excellent document to review diligently and to keep as future reference. His inspection made me feel very reassured that I found the ideal home.

David Gilbert was great! I had to have a mold inspection in a pinch because of a fast-moving cash transaction, and he was able to accomodate us by doing the inspection just 24 hours after I ordered it. He was very knowledgable, thorough, and is prices were very competitive. I will definitely be using him again and recommending him to others.
- J.S., November 2015
Excellent, expedient, and friendly. A comment on your email copy: there are some spelling errors which doesn't fit how professional you truly are. Have your automatic emails looked over!
- M.B., May 2015
We felt Dave did a thorough and responsible inspection. He provided explanation where needed, and was very responsive to questions after the report was received.
- T.F., May 2015
Great job, complete and thorough
- J.R., San Clemente CA, April 2015
David was very detailed in his inspection of the Condo that I am currently buying. He noticed the little things that I had missed looking at the unit twice. I now feel confident that I have the information I need to make all repairs to the unit and that nothing major will pop up as a surprise. This inspection gave me confidence that a professional had done the once over twice. Thank you!!!
- G.J., March 2015
Dave was great!!! He's super knowledgeable and friendly and took his time answering all of our questions. His report was comprehensive and delivered right on time! We appreciate that he didn't try to 'up-sell' extra services to us, instead, he was honest to tell us that we didn't need as many samples as we thought we would. I would absolutely recommend Dave to anyone!
- L.M., March 2015
Dave did a wonderful job of explaining the entire process and what the main issues he found during the inspection. He was EXTREMELY thorough and his report was reader friendly. The pictures really helped me understand what he was referring to in his report. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
- K.S., March 2015
It was great working with you Dave! We didn't plan on having to deal with mold in our new home, but you were very patient & really helped us understand our problem and how to deal with it in a safe manner. We would absolutely recommend you to anyone with a mold issue.
- N.M., February 2015
Have used Dave since the 1990's. That Adobe should tell you something.
- M.C., February 2015
This is Dave's second time with the same clients! Especially appreciate your accommodating short notice to come out. If not for you we would have been outside the contract dates, not a good thing! Thanks Dave and look forward to the seller's hiring you to remediate the problem.. kind regards, Mary George, Realtor Keller Williams Realty 949-689-5154 BRE 01143345

Mr. Gilbert is totally professional and extremely knowledgeable in his areas of expertise. My biggest regret is that I did know of David prior to his visit last week. I wish I knew of his owner inspection service. It would have saved me a great deal of hassle and grief. Loretta Robinson
- L.R., November 2014
David was amazing. Made me feel very comfortable answered all of my questions and was very patient with me and extremely intelligent. I would recommend him to any of my family an friends. The report had a very quick turn around and if you are sick and suffering it makes you feel at ease knowing you are in the best hands. Thank you David.

Hi Dave: We are reviewing your report--will be touch later on this week. Sterling Ditchey
- E.L., La Habra CA, June 2014
I would not use any other inspector. David is very professional and knowledgeable regarding construction. In addition, I appreciate how he takes the time to thoroughly explain the details of the home inspection. I also appreciate that he looks at the "big things" and doesn't nit pick immaterial items.
- C.P., May 2014
Dear David, Thanks so much for your diligent and caring inspection of the property. I've been in real estate business for 23 years and have worked with many inspectors, but you surely outperformed them all. Your knowledge and experience of knowing where serious problems might be hidden , and how to access those areas , helped us tremendously . Hidden problems like mold , can easily remain in the house undetected for years and cause very serious long term health complications. I can not thank you enough for the great job you did and hoping to use your services again soon. Tom Manzari Licensed Real Estate Broker BHHS California Properties

Dave did a great job inspecting the house and quickly supplied me with a detailed report I used in discussions with the seller. It was worth the money to know the true condition of the house during the escrow process.

The inspection was outstanding from the beginning to the final report! Please publish this so others know how good you and your company are. Thanks! James Shafer, PhD

Thank you so much , you did an excellent work very meticulous inspection. Thanks Olso for your advice about how to protect your home from mold, great friendly,honest adviser . Thanks again
- K.P., Coto De Caza CA, November 2013
It is so very rare to find an inspector that will take the time, in our case over an hour, to explain the problem and answer our questions and Dave did that. He was patient, kind and so understood our concerns especially since we lived a distance from our new home. He instilled trust immediately. We can't thank him enough for competent assistance. The best part was that we even though we knew little about mold, he explain it all so we could understand. PS..ok to publish but no names please
- C.D., November 2013
Dave was very thorough in his inspection and did a great job explaining the issues and cause of the moisture.
