I was purchasing a beach block condo. in Lavallette, NJ built in 1938 and it was a short-sale. There was only one inspector that I trusted would provide me with an inspection thorough enough that would give me the
confidence to either move forward or bail-out of the purchase. After the inspection, I felt confident enough
to continue with the transaction and even though much of the inspection findings would not be taken care
of by the seller due to the nature of the sale, I had a complete list of recommendations that I could refer to and take care of at a later date. I truly appreciate Neil's knowledge, thoroughness and passion for
his business. R.S. , Manalapan, NJ

Neil just completed my house in Howell. Neil is a thorough inspector and I highly recommend his services. He level of professionalism and dedication is unsurpassed. Having experienced other inspectors with prior purchases, I can whole-heartedly advise friends, family, co-workers, and anyone who will listen, to hire Neil. You will regret it if you don't!
- M.W., Freehold NJ, June 2016
Neil is extremely thorough and executes an amazing home inspection job. Very pleasant and experienced home inspector. Ihe treats you as though he was inspecting for a family member. I would recommend Neil to anyone!
- L.B., Jersey City NJ, May 2016
Neil is extremely professional and highly knowledgeable. He explains his findings in great detail, with pictures, which is highly beneficial to the homeowner. Neil returns calls promptly and answered all my questions, even when I called him in the evening.
We used Neil to do a pre-inspection on our home before we put it up for sale. This enabled us to address certain issues before our house went on the market and as a result, we knew what to expect when our buyer's inspector inspected our house.
We used Neil again for the house we were buying and were extremely satisfied with the results.
My wife and I highly recommend Neil as a home inspector.
- P.R., Manalapan NJ, May 2016
Thank you for the thorough inspection.
- J.C., Helmetta NJ, April 2016
I used a watch Mike Holmes show on Netflix and always wished I could hire him or someone who knows as much as him.
I did some research and it turns out that we have one better in our own backyard. His name is Neil.
We liked one house a lot and after reading all the DETAILED REPORT WITH EXCELLENT PICTURES from the inspection, we decided not to buy the house because of lot of inherent issues that were pointed out in the report. We would have missed all the issues pointed out if it was not was Neil and we would have regretted it down the road.
We are still looking for that "perfect" house and once we find it, I will re-hire Neil to do the inspection.
His reports are very detailed with lots of pictures, explains everything in layman's terms. He answers all the questions, even if it does not related to the inspection of the inspected home. He is extremely knowledgeable and very reasonable priced.
So in nutshell, you cannot go wrong with Neil.
- M.M., Piscataway NJ, September 2015
I rarely write reviews, but I have to write this one because it is well deserved. Neil is a superb home inspector! I would use him again without hesitation. After looking at his website and doing a thorough check I decided he was the one I would entrust with my home inspection. I must be a very smart guy, because I made a great decision in hiring him. His inspection was very thorough, complete, and educational. He not only inspected the house, but also provided maintenance information and tips that can prevent future problems. I now have a better understanding on how a house works. His reports are detailed and he took quite a bit of his time to answer numerous questions I had after the report was done. His prices are excellent for the level of services he delivers and it's obvious to me that he takes pride in delivering a quality product.
- M.C., Freehold NJ, August 2015
I have purchased more than a dozen homes in my time and I have NEVER even come close to having such a thorough and professional inspection as I received from Neil. The reports are numerous and so detailed with pictures, summaries, suggestions, etc.
Neil is specific it what your expectations should be with his inspections and he delivers! He is very quick to respond to any questions, his website is very informative and user-friendly to viewing your reports.
I know that you will not be disappointed with the excellence of service that Inspect It Neil provides. Money WELL spent!!
- P.E., Allenhurst NJ, August 2015
Not only did Neil give the house a thorough inspection, he also shared his knowledge and experiences with us, and more valuable, advise his clients at the inspection and help us resolve concerns after the inspection.
He explained every step very clearly before he was about to carry it out. As a first time buyer, I asked him tons of questions and he has always been so patient to answer me. Although Neil is very busy doing inspections, he keeps a very quick turnaround for my questions either by phone or by emails. I would definitely recommend him to my friends!

This would be my first home purchase. I obviously don't have much experience in this field. I relied on Neil heavily. He was very resourceful and explained everything in detail. I was completely impressed. I knew I made the right choice though, when my realtor said "thanks Neil, you've just completed the longest home inspection in the 20 plus years of my career". Funny thing was, he was 3/4's of the way done. Will reccomend to everyone. Thanks!
- P.M., howell NJ, April 2015
Neil was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He explained everything in detail and ecouraged us to ask questions. I would definitely recommend him for a home inspection. LB Marlboro, NJ January 2015

Neil did a fabulous job during our home inspection. He was thorough and went the extra mile in explaining each phase with recomendations. Would definitely recommend
- D.G., pearl river NY, January 2015
We used Neil for our home inspection in Freehold in August, 2014. We can say without question that his service greatly exceeded our expectations. Neil was extremely knowledgeable and gave us an incredibly thorough inspection.
Neil provided us with a detailed report (including photos) of all of his findings. The report even included recommendations for how to remediate any problems he found with the house.
We can with 100% confidence highly recommend Neil Kipnis for any home inspection.

Neil was the very first inspector I ever worked with. My client picked his name out of the phone book. That was back in 2009. I urge all of my buyer's to use Neil. He is knowledgeable, thorough and takes the time to answer any and all questions. If you're looking for top notch, look no futher!
- K.Z., Spring Lake NJ, January 2015
Very professional and patient! Neil is not only giving you a very detailed report, but he is also guiding you how to maintain your house in the future. Highly recommended.
- T.H., September 2014
Neil is a wonderful and extremely thorough house inspector. He pays attention to everything and if we had any questions during the inspection, he was there to answer it. Even though I thought I had "stupid/wrong" questions, he never once made us feel like it was stupid or wrong to ask. As his moto is, "THE ONLY WRONG QUESTION IS THE QUESTION YOU DO NOT ASK." If we didn't understand anything he was saying, he would take his time and explain it to us. His report he gave us was very thorough with images that point out the areas that had any issues which is very useful. He is also very responsive to any question before and after the inspection. Wonderful inspector and if I ever buy another house again, I will definitely have Neil inspect it for us.
- E.L., April 2014

- G.E., July 2013
Neil inspected an older home for us. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and thorough. He explained any and all potential issues during the inspection. His report included photographs as well as detailed descriptions of each inspection item - both inside and outdoors.
It was obvious he takes inspections seriously on behalf of buyer and seller. We are completely confident with his findings, given the time and care he took to properly inspect the home.
We were so satisfied with Neil's work that we asked him to address a potential inspection concern in the home we are selling. He responded promptly to our request and provided helpful and knowledgeable feedback.
We could not recommend him more highly!
- S.K., Holmdel NJ, May 2013
I had ordered full inspection in January 2013 prior purchase my home. He is very responsible, and very detail during the inspection. He informed us all necessary information about the home condition and things need to improve. Three month after we moved in, One of GFCI outlet was triggered and I canâ??t find where to reset. I emailed Neil. He checked back his notes and called back. And He come over to my home showed me where to reset on next dayâ?¦. (Free of charge). He is the inspector who I will use again and recommend.
- J.Y., April 2013
Thanks for a very high quality inspection. This is a major transaction where a wrong move can bankrupt me. It was reassuring to have somebody like you with the skill and integrity on my side.
- W.K., Tinton Falls NJ, February 2013
Neil was a great Inspector. He took the time to ask our many many questions before, during and after the inspection. He was able to provide recommendations on corrections, and was very polite and professional. Our inspection lasted approx 3 1/2 hours for a ranch with a basement.
- S.L., Edison NJ, November 2012
Excellent job as always!
- E.A., Piscataway NJ, October 2012
Being avid watchers of HGTV and their home inspection shows, we knew that for our home inspection it was crucial to find someone with expertise, extensive knowledge and the understanding of how important a home inspection is to a potential buyer. After searching the internet for a local person I came across Neil's website and the fabulous video he has posted which explains how he works and shows you the methods he uses to be as thorough as possible. During the inspection, Neil was great at answering all of our questions and explaining what he was doing in addition to displaying exemplary respect for the property as he touched, turned on, and looked behind everything possible. Not only is he an expert and a professional, he has a warm and very kind personality and when coupled with his ethical nature and assurance that he is working for the buyer and no one else, this makes for a very comforting home inspection. I would recommend Neil to anyone wanting a thorough and honest inspection!
- C.C., North Brunswick NJ, September 2012
Neil is a very thorough and experienced inspector. We would highly recommend him for homes of any size and value.
- M.G., August 2012
I would rate Neil an 11 (oh wait, the max score is 10?).
Where do I begin? Utmost professional and a true subject matter expert that CARES!
Earlier than appointed time.
Very efficient in sequencing inspection steps and full of knowledge. Pointed out problems and as well pointed out stuff I should not worry about and EXPLAINED in detailed fashion both types WHY. Employs hi-tech tools that allows us to examine from a safe situation a lot of stuff that otherwise hard to get to and may be hidden.
Even the guy he brought over for pest inspection is superb (Walt).
- E.A., Piscataway NJ, August 2012
Great home inspector and extremely thorough. He is the type of inspector you want so you know the problems and issues with the house before making your purchase. I would highly recommend him to everyone.
- B.L., July 2012

great ! Will pick Neil again in the future.
- Q.X., Holmdel NJ, May 2012
Neil is the BEST home inspector I have ever seen in this country. He is super knowledgeable and experienced in every aspect. He is also so patient that you would feel he treats your home as if he is going to purchase this property. What you can expect is not just an inspection report with a list of facts, but an incredibly impressive inspection report with a very fast turnaround time and with an extremely high standard and quality. We would definitely love to work with you again and recommend to others without any hesitate. Thank you so much, Neil!!
- R.F., May 2012
Neil, I love your services. I feel like you do a very thorough job in my house inspection and I now have confidence in your work and my purchase. Thanks for much for your excellent service and professionalism.
- E.K., Robbinsville NJ, May 2012
Neil is the best inspector I have ever seen.
- C.K., February 2012
Neil's level of knowledge is impressive. He was able to answer every question, and if it was a question outside the scope of home inspection he would call someone to get the answer immediately. Even 3 or 4 months after the inspection, he gladly and promptly replied to my inquiries. Neil also used state of the art equipment from digital photos, to computerized testing in my case. It's great to have a detailed report with photos so you can see exactly what is going on. Also the report isn't just a list of facts, he writes recommendations and explains things in an easy to understand context so that you really understand what is going on with the home you are about to purchase. Lastly he is a gentleman. At one point the realtor was late to show up to let us in the house and he patiently waited with me outside for a little over an hour. If you are looking for an honest and knowledgeable professional, Neil is your guy.
- C.P., Colts Neck NJ, December 2011
Being a first time home owner the process could be very intimidating. When i chose to use Neil for my home inspection from the moment he started till he finished i knew i had made the right choice. Not only is he efficient but he is full of knowledge and professionalism. That helped me understand what the house had to offer even before i am moving in. If i have the chance to use him again i would not think twice to give him a call and if i have the opportunity to refer him to anyone he is the first referral i give.
- C.Y., November 2011
He went over and beyond what was expected. He was worth every dollar I spent. I left the inspection highly informed and satisfied.
- J.B., Staten Island NY, April 2011
Thank you for your hard work.
Neil, I noticed that both Amber and Valerie are listed in the report. Is it correct to assume that you sent both a copy of this report?
On another note, were you able to ascertain additional information regarding the pool company and their involvement in the closing of the pool?
- S.C., April 2011
Thank you for your professional effort and information
