Extremely Thorough!!, 12/30/2009

I was arguing with my co-worker about who had the better home inspector. At the end of the conversation we realized we were talking about the same guy :-)


This Dude knows hid stuff, 10/14/2007

Derek is a real person and treated me and my partner with the utmost respect. I've bought and sold houses since the mid '80s and I've not met anybody so well rounded in their knowledge and... willingness to explain his findings. Derek even went out of his way to do a follow-up inspection when we asked the sellers to reveal the broken slab he had found and backed me up as my advocate while trying to coordinate a cohesive plan to fix the problem safely and properly, but assured me not to proceed with the purchase until the seller accepts full responsibility prior to closing. Derek is money well spent. I highly recommend his service to everybody that's buying a house. Augie Alvarez

Honest, Upfront, Fantastic!

Friendly and patient beyond expectation! As first time home buyers, Derek helped bring our intimidation down and helped us to understand both what we thought we needed to know and what we did not even realize we needed to know. Fantastic job. Will recommend American Dream and Derek to anyone willing to listen! If you need a home inspection done this is your HONEST guy! Retired Military Marine Corps to boot! Thanks Derek, From the Entire Boyd/Davis Family!

Amazing Inspections and Reports

As an agent in San Diego, I have seen a lot of home inspectors and reports, and Derek Porter at American Dream has the most thorough and easy to understand inspection reports out there. The report was filled with photos and recommendations, but most importantly the friendly atmosphere and patience that Derek took with my clients was amazing. Great Job. Bob
