Nancy Backman as a Realtor

"Unparalleled Professionalism & Extraordinary Results"

As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.

Nancy Backman joined the Bellevue John L. Scott Real Estate team as a broker in March 2003. Entering a completely new field, Nancy set her sights on becoming Rookie of the Year, which she achieved through her disciplined approach, client focus, sheer determination and work ethic. As a real estate agent for the past 15 years, Nancy has helped hundreds of clients purchase and successfully market their homes achieving extraordinary results through her extensive market knowledge, sophisticated marketing skills and a commitment to exceptional customer service.

Before joining John L. Scott, Nancy was the Manager of Major Meetings and Events for Shell Oil Company. In that role, Nancy gained a significant appreciation for client satisfaction and learned the skills necessary to effectively support executive teams. Going back to her early years in the corporate world as a Marketing Consultant with Texaco Oil, her drive to succeed moved her up through the ranks from an Assistant Manager of Advertising & Sales position to Brand Management and then a successful transition to Manager of Major Meetings and Events at Shell when Texaco was acquired by Shell. Nancy’s life in sales and marketing for Fortune 500 companies and her strong work ethic have continually fueled her success as a highly regarded and successful real estate broker.

This results oriented drive combined with passion, integrity and ability to build a foundation of trust, has made Nancy one of the top brokers in the greater Seattle and the Eastside areas. This dedication has not only yielded hundreds of satisfied clients, but has also landed Nancy numerous awards, including the Top 1% in 2011 and 2014 and the Chairman’s Circle in 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017. She was also Top 2% in 2006 to 2007, President’s Elite in 2004, 2008 and 2012 and a President’s Gold recipient in 2009 and 2010. Nancy is also an eight-year winner of Seattle Magazine’s 5 Star Best in Client Satisfaction Award.

Nancy approaches every client relationship as a long-term business relationship and partnership, giving each buyer or seller her complete focus while remaining available for them around the clock. As a seasoned sales and marketing professional with more than 30 years in sales, marketing, advertising and customer service, Nancy leverages every ounce of her skill set to provide her clients with a positive experience. She takes advantage of social media along with professional videos and photos to help market her listings. She also networks regularly with other brokers and is always thinking about creative approaches for reaching new potential buyers.

Nancy’s professionalism, her 20 years of background in the corporate world and her laser focus on the client experience sets her apart from her peers. For Nancy, there is a direct relationship between how much effort and passion she puts into her work and real estate is her true passion. Nancy's skills made her a natural fit for John L. Scott's team of brokers who handle executive relocation for transferees at local and international companies.

Nancy has a bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of Washington. In addition to her academic degree, Nancy is a member of numerous career development groups, including the Luxury Home Marketing Institute and the National Association of Realtors. She also supports the John L. Scott Foundation and the Executive Women’s Golf Association. Her certifications include Luxury Home Agent, Relocation Certified Agent, Designated Online Agent, New Home Sales Professional and JLS Portfolio Luxury Professional.

In her free time Nancy enjoys running, working out, cooking, travel, spending time with her family, skiing, jetskiing and fashion.


" You are the best Real Estate Agent...Ever!”

"From the moment Nancy Backman walked in our door to introduce herself, we could see that she could create the image we wanted prospective buyers to see.  She displayed the knowledge, preparation, confidence, presence, and communicating abilities that are also essential and later on incredibly helpful in the process of selling our home.  In the following month, her network of contacts were able to transform the house we had been living in (beautiful house but in need of repairs, paint, (leaning) into the beautiful and desired home it is.  What we soon found out, is that she has a wonderful network of contacts  who got the work done on our house that brought it to that point, that very elegant  image, of how we wanted to show our home.  Her repair person Luke Thoreson, stager Karen Cervarich,  painter Ben Ornelas and cleaning crew Four Seasons were all exceptional people to work with – working with us in an efficient and timely manner.  Her Photographer was  exceptional as well as the marketing materials and they really captured the legance and beauty of our home.

We were also very pleased with the back and forth communication throughout the selling of our home with Nancy.  Especially, since we had moved out of state before it went on the market. She was always very responsive anytime we had any questions.  She was always there for recommendations. Without her communication, we would be completely blind to how things were going with the house, but she regularly communicated with us about how open houses were going, what kind of interest there was in the house, as well as the state of the house and yard.

Nancy Backman was a shining star and we were so fortunate to have her as our realtor thru the selling of our home."

“After buying and selling homes over the last 20 something years I have always viewed home buying as simply a transaction needing a Realtor or Broker until now.  Last week I closed on a home where Nancy Backman was the Sellers agent. I was absolutely amazed at the level of thoroughness and communication during the entire process with all parties, even
ensuring things were perfect post close with everyone.  Nancy's commitment, attention to detail and passion for excellence was a level I haven't see before.

After experiencing this type of Five Star customer service I will only be buying and selling through Nancy, not to mention I will be sending everyone I know in the market her way. Nancy truly stands out from the crowd and I only have one word to describe everything "Awesome"."

“We were re-locating from out of state, hence a lot of our communication had to be done via phone/email. Our time was very limited and Nancy made the most of it. She is courteous, prompt and very professional. Nancy is extremely
resourceful and presented us with real options that reflected our taste. Once we decided on purchasing a property, she answered all our questions honestly and always had our best interest in mind. Nancy was extremely helpful during
negotiations and connected us to the right people. She is open minded and worked collaboratively with our lawyer. Throughout the entire process, Nancy was available around the clock”
