I don't normally write reviews but I was so impressed with Greg's sincerity, honesty and helpfulness, that I just thought I would pass my feelings along to others that might be looking for a good realtor to find their home. Greg is hardworking and I really appreciated everything he did for us before and after closing. I feel he really went above and beyond with his service.

~Gary M, Estero seller

My husband, Ron and I highly recommend the real estate team of Greg Backus and Steve Horn for any prospective West Bay buyer. While we were staying in Estero in the spring of 2016, we called West Bay Realty and were introduced to Greg Backus and Steve Horn. Since my husband is retiring soon, we were specifically looking for a condo complex that would allow us to have our dog. In the prior months, I had looked extensively for properties online. As a result, I had a good idea of what I was looking for. For the two of us, the view was very important. We knew we wanted a high-rise tower. We did not want a single-family home. Virtually none of the towers in the greater Naples-Fort Myers area would allow a dog who weighed nearly 60 pounds, except West Bay Club. Greg was kind enough on short notice to give us a complete tour of West Bay Club and to show us the condominiums that were for sale in the Jasmine Bay Towers. He was extremely easy to work with and very knowledgeable about West Bay Club. Although we were not intending to purchase a condo on this visit to Florida, we were fortunate to find the perfect property. With Greg and Steve, the process was seamless. Since we live in the upper Midwest, the inspection and all the paperwork was completed long distance. Greg represented us in our absence and Steve was kind enough to meet us on a Sunday night in November when we arrived for the first time. The two of them were so thoughtful that they even had food in the refrigerator. We consider them friends. We would not hesitate to recommend their team, as well as West Bay Club, to any of our friends who might be interested in purchasing a second home in Southwest Florida.

If you are thinking of purchasing a home and are not sure about which realtor to deal with, may we suggest Greg Backus and Steve Horn from West Bay Realty. We can't say enough about Greg and Steve’s professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge about our real estate market. They brought these qualities and much more to the table for me and my husband, not just during the real estate transaction itself, but also in the transition to our new home and community. We picked Greg and Steve as our realtors because from the get go they were attentive and quick to respond to all our phone calls and needs. Throughout the home buying process, Greg and Steve went above and beyond! No request or question from us went unanswered. They were extremely responsive and thoughtful in their recommendations and attention to details. They are extraordinarily service-oriented and will get the job done! Very importantly, Greg and Steve will not forget you once the deal is done. We have called them numerous times for recommendations of painters, handymen, plumbers, among other professionals. They have always come through with excellent, timely recommendations. Whenever we had or still have an inquiry of any kind regarding the purchase of our new home, they never hesitate to find out all information they can to make us feel comfortable with our decision. To this day, they still make us feel like helping us is their #1 priority. They even brought a wonderful welcome gift to us in our new home when we moved in! Without any hesitation, whatsoever, we highly recommend Greg and Steve for your next real estate transaction!

~Chuck and Randi W, Estero buyers

We have bought and sold a number of homes during the past 25 years and have never experienced such responsive customer service and follow-through as was demonstrated by the West Bay Realty Team.

~Naples, Florida seller

We were extremely pleased with the level of service and professionalism that Greg Backus and Steve Horn gave us when selling our home. They delivered all the marketing and promotion as promised and made the entire process smooth and painless. Thank you so much.

~Bonita Springs, Florida seller

We want to thank West Bay Realty for helping us find our winter home. Greg and Steve are experts on local real estate and helped us find the perfect house for our family. We highly recommend them and will gladly refer them to all our Canadian friends.

~Naples, Florida buyer

Greg Backus could not have done more to help us find our new home and to make the purchase process smooth and rapid. We shopped on Sunday and commenced with the sale on Tuesday. The closing itself was executed professionally and thoroughly. But more importantly, his service does not end with the sale. When we needed directions or suggestions for this and that as we settled in, he was more than happy to help with his knowledge and expertise. We were fortunate to have found him when we began our home search -- efficient, professional and friendly!

~Steve and Jennifer K, Estero buyers

My husband and I moved in to our beautiful new home in WestLake Court in June of 2016. We looked at the lot with Steve Horn and fell in love with it and put a deposit down the next week. Steve and Greg sold our Pelican Landing condo in a matter of days and we were rolling with the plans for the new house. We could not have gotten it all done so quickly without them. They both were awesome and are we are grateful for their diligence and professionalism.

~Tim and Beth B, Pelican Landing seller & Estero buyer

We have bought, sold and built in Estero many times over the last couple decades but we must admit that Greg and Steve went beyond. My wife and I were interested in building and with Steve's help we found a great lot and a terrific builder to customize our dream home. Greg and Steve were there every step of the way and even assisted in finding us a rental while our home  was being built. These two are professional, communicative and true to their word. The best team in Southwest Florida by far!

~Peter and Trina K, West Bay Club buyers

We just wanted to let other potential buyers and sellers know that our experience with Greg Backus at West Bay Realty has been tremendous. We have bought and sold many homes over the years but this purchase in Naples was completely stress free with Greg handling all angles and helping us every step of the way. With Greg’s help and market knowledge, we found a beautiful condo in Naples. The hands-on customer service and attention to detail was outstanding, something you really don’t see much of anymore. It was a pleasure working with Greg and West Bay Realty. My wife and I  highly recommend their services to anyone thinking of moving to Southwest Florida.
