At Backus Real Estate, our backgrounds in banking, commercial lending, commercial appraisal, management, investment, research and marketing afford us a comprehensive understanding of any piece of commercial real estate. We bring that knowledge to bear in every transaction, allowing us to find and negotiate the best deals for our clients, and then follow through on them right to closing. At Backus Real Estate, we don’t view our job as finished when the deal is made. We work closely with our clients’ chosen lenders, attorneys, engineers, and environmental consultants to ensure a smooth transaction, from start to finish.

Along with extensive internet marketing – Loopnet, CERC (Connecticut Economic Resource Center), MLS, CoStar,, Zillow, Trulia, and others – we place a high value on custom-tailored, targeted marketing campaigns. Direct mailings, flyers, targeted social media ads, and personal visits to surrounding businesses and property owners are all part of our integrated marketing strategy.

As members of the CT MLS and Fairfield County MLS, we welcome the participation of our fellow commercial real estate brokers. There are firms that keep their listings “in-house” to sell only to their own clients and customers. At Backus Real Estate, we put our client’s interests first, always. We believe that the best way to sell or lease a property for the highest price is to give it maximum exposure. Our cooperative approach is why we are members of the Commercial, Industrial, and Development divisions of the Board of Realtors throughout Connecticut.

Jed Backus is proud to be serving as Chairman of the Greater New Haven-Middlesex Association of Realtors Commercial and Investment Division, as well as serving as the Commercial Director on the NHMR Board of Directors.
