Rebecca Backer

Sales Associate Mendham office

Rebecca’s background as an entrepreneur presents an ideal foundation for a career in real estate. Combining a highly professional work style based on open communication with a positive outlook, she sums up her philosophy this way: “I treat people with respect and kindness. I loved the days when a deal was made with a handshake and you were good for your word.  I pride myself on being honest, loyal and doing the best I can possibly do.”

The former owner and operator of a children’s boutique in Chester for seven years, Rebecca honed her marketing and customer service skills to establish a successful enterprise. She used creative methods to grow her business by hosting children’s parties and special events.  She also worked in a local pre-school and was a home health aide before entering the real estate field.

Rebecca and her husband have five children ranging in age from 9 to 25 years old.  The family has lived in Long Valley since 2011 and also lived in Mendham and Chester.  In fact, Rebecca’s family has strong ties to the area as the owners of Backer Farm on Ironia Road in Mendham. 

They started the farm in 1927, but have been in the Mendham and Peapack areas since the early 1800s.  Another longtime family, the Mosles, bought property from the Backers to build their elaborate Hillandale mansion.

Since her interests include antiquing and history, it’s not surprising that Rebecca is enjoying the restoration of her family’s circa 1830 Spring House in Long Valley.  She believes older homes tell a story, and she appreciates their beauty.  Rebecca is drawn to artistic pursuits such as drawing, painting and teaching herself to play the guitar, mandolin and banjo. Her country lifestyle lends itself to a true love of animals, and she has three dogs, chickens and ducks.

Rebecca’s engaging personality comes across the first time you meet; her friends and co-workers describe her as generous, practical, smart and strong.  In her role as a sales associate, she provides equal measures of calmness and excitement during the transaction process. 

Drawn to Turpin based on their personalized approach, Rebecca was impressed by the warm, welcoming attitude she found in the Mendham Office.  She passes that same generosity of spirit onto her buyers and sellers as she helps them navigate their home purchase or sale.  Rebecca welcomes your future call, visit or e-mail.
