Craig Iden

Owner of Golden State Inspection Services – Sacramento Inspections

I’m a CA. general contractor Lic#913615 and have been inspecting real estate since 1999 performing over 6500 inspections. Before that, I was a journeyman carpenter working on both commercial and residential projects in the San Francisco Bay Area. I grew up in San Jose and moved to the Sacramento area when I was 23. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and our kids snow skiing, camping, hiking, trips to Tahoe and the ocean and traveling to new and exciting places.

My goal has been to create a team of the most trusted and experienced individuals, and we’ve done that here with Golden State Inspection Service and to provide you with the Peace of Mind you deserve during your real estate buying transaction.

David Ellis


I have years of experience in various construction trades, both on the east and west coasts, and almost a decade of experience working alongside construction defect attorneys and their case files.  As an on-going student, I am in the process of achieving certification as a combination building inspector by the International Code Council, and currently a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNachi).  As a homeowner myself, and as someone who has been around the real estate business my entire life, I understand the importance of a thorough inspection on what is often times a person’s single largest investment.

In my free time, and besides spending time with friends and family, I like to stay active by running my dogs, skateboarding, shooting hoops, rafting, practicing muay thai or jui jitsu, and working on the house.
