I’ve been in business my whole life and don’t often write letters like this, but after the great experience that I had with Backus Real Estate, writing this letter is a pleasure.
You were referred to me in 2004 when I told a good friend that I was ready for a life change. I wanted to sell both my business property and my home in Branford, CT and move to Florida. My friend told me that you would be the perfect choice for me because you handle both commercial and residential properties, which I now realize that not all Realtors do. I met with you in Jan. 2005 and gave you the listing for the sale of my business property. The property closed before June of 2005 and at a record price. Once the business was under contract I gave you the listing on my residential property and told you I wanted it sold by the end of summer. Once again you and your son Jed rose to the challenge. You not only got it sold on time but also got me a great price on the house. Both closings went off in on time and without any complications, which is not surprising because after working with you and your team, I’ve realized that you are true professionals. I can’t say enough good things about you and your team at Backus Real Estate.
It was a pleasure working with someone who was so experienced, knowledgeable and confident in the commercial sector when it came to selling my company’s property and being able to use one Realtor for both sales also took a lot of stress and confusion out of the whole process. I will certainly recommend your company to any of my friends and family that are looking to buy, sell or invest in Real Estate in Conn. in the future. You and your team at Backus Realty are the best.
Thank you Phil and Jed for exceeding my expectations and helping me with my life change.
