In every profession there are always a few people who stand out and considered the best of the best – Neil is one of them. His honesty, professionalism and knowledge were paramount in our decision making process regarding a house we made an offer on. We can’t thank him enough !!

I needed proof of a wind mitigation done in 2014 to switch insurance company, but nothing was in my files except the receipt for payment .When I called to arrange appointment, Neil was able to send a pdf of the 5 year old report which the new underwriters a accepted! This saved me money and coordination with a tenant, saving us both time. There was no charge for this Surfside service, but 5 stars is not enough to reflect my appreciation.

We have rental properties and have flipped a home or two as well. Neil is the expert we call before considering a purchase. Neil was also so helpful sending us pictures of the wind mitigations he had taken 5 years earlier. Our new insurance company needed the pics or else we would have to get new wind mitigations on all of our properties. Saved us a lot of headache and money. If you want peace of mind and someone who will be there for you 5 years after the job is done, you really should consider Neil. Simply the best!

Neil is super responsive and awesome to work with.

This is the real deal for saving money on your home insurance. Neil’s wind mitigation services saved me just under 30% on my home insurance.

We have called upon Neil’s services on 2 occasions. Each time he was prompt and courteous with us and the sellers we were dealing with. If he noted a problem in a house during his inspections he would call in the proper professional to evaluate and determine the cost of repair. His responses are immediate. No delays. His reports are delivered within 1-2 days clear, concise and professional. If he makes a commitment to you he’s there.
We’ve used him twice….if the need should arise again in the future…he’s the one.

Hands down, Surfside Home Inspections is the best inspection in Volusia County. Neil duals as a General Contractor and that level of experience is a matter of utmost importance when it comes to inspection of your home. If you or someone you know is buying property, you need to call Surfside Home Inspections.

By far the best home inspection we’ve had! Neil is professional, very informative and provides a great experience during a somewhat stressful time!

There are not many inspectors in the Daytona Beach, Port Orange, and Ormond Beach area that are HALF as competent as Neil Surfside Home Inspections. Neil really knows his stuff and is by far the best inspector in the industry. Do yourself a favor and go with Surfside Home Inspections.

I was purchasing a house, and I needed it to be inspected within a couple of days of the offer, I called Neil and he made an appointment to inspect the house the very next morning. He was very professional, on time, and did a very detailed inspection of the home. There were a couple of minor problems that he pointed out and also advised me as how to get the problems repaired. I will use Neil again on my next home purchase and have referred him to many of my friends. Thanks Neil!!

I hired Surfside Home Inspections twice so far and Neil was extremely thorough and provided a full printout with pictures of any issues discovered during the inspection. He is very objective and truly professional. Neil answered my text and email promptly to schedule an appointment. I have used another company in the past and the difference is night and day. I highly recommend Surfside Home Inspections.

Last October in 2018 I purchased a beautiful home in Pelican Bay in Daytona Beach,Florida.I was fortunate to hire Surfside Home Inspections to perform the prepurchase,four point,and wind mitigation inspections.Neil Ochefski is the owner of the company and does all of the work himself.His background as an aviation inspector and his many years in the construction business makes him one of the most qualified inspectors in the industry.His meticulous attention to detail and pleasing personality make him a pleasure to do business with.He runs a 5 star business and I could not recommend him any higher for your inspections.Give Neil a call and you’ll be glad you did.

Neil responded to my message within 24 hours with an email and a personal phone call. When you sign a home contract, you have about 15 days to obtain home inspection results, so time in scheduling a “qualified” inspection, with results in hand are of great importance. Neil scheduled our appointment in 3 days. He spent about 4 hours on review of the home from roof to foundation, including appliances. No detail seemed to be left out, which is what we needed since we do not currently live in that state. Twenty four hours after the inspection, we were provided a detailed, written, in color email, that included his recommendations. He also spent time on the phone with us addressing our concerns. Since Neil is also a licensed contractor, his opinion and recommendations are a BIG value to us, when encountering such a large purchase. I would HIGHLY recommend using Neil’s Home Inspection.

Neil gave a thorough three-hour home inspection on a property I was considering purchasing. Following the inspection, he sat down and went over every aspect of the report. I would highly recommend Surfside Home Inspections and will use him again if I ever have the need.

Linda Weaver

Neil is very professional and meticulous in his Inspection’s and I appreciate getting the reports within 24 hours, being that he is also a Licensed Contractor and is familiar with Building codes is a definite plus and instills great confidence in my Buyer’s.
I highly recommend Neil to anyone who wants a good Inspection
