Welcome to the good life!

Naturally nestled on 868 acres among wetlands and nature preserve west of US 41, and bounded by Estero Bay and Estero River, West Bay Club offers something for everyone and every lifestyle.  From world class golf and tennis, nature parks, and boating with Gulf access, to multiple dining venues including the Bay House and Beach House on Hickory Island, West Bay Club members really do have it all!

The West Bay Club community includes nine established neighborhoods and one new luxury single family villa neighborhood— WestLake Court —now under construction. Choices of home styles range from carriage homes and villas to single-family estates and high-rise condos, with each one showcasing quality architecture and incredible views.

Very few places in the world offer such a quality of life… such a rich mosaic of amenities… such a unique and remarkable selection of residences… and such a location – all at a value yet to be matched on Florida’s Southwest Coast.


Steve and Greg were instrumental in making the purchase of our condo a great and personal experience from our initial meeting to discuss properties in FL to the closing on our West Bay condo. Timing is everything. They offered helpful advice on renovations, furniture purchasing, and served as a go between for various contractors.

Steve and Greg have been a wealth of knowledge and a friendly voice, email, or text. We thank the entire West Bay Realty team so very much for all they have done for us. Thanks too for the goodie bag we received upon our arrival. It was a perfect welcoming gift. We are thrilled to be part of the West Bay community.

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!

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.

~Lori M, Estero 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

I have had the pleasure of working with West Bay Realty for a number of years and can honestly say that Greg Backus and Steve Horn are by far two of the most professional and experienced agents in the real estate business. Their knowledge of the area, diligence, and attention to detail make their customers feel at ease with their transactions. From market analysis to marketing to contract negotiations, Steve and Greg are exceptional in their abilities and go out of their way to ensure the transaction goes smoothly and all parties are happy with the outcome. They are first class, high caliber real estate professionals who are always available to their clients. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Greg Backus, Steve Horn and West Bay Realty.

~Brad and Caroline G, Pelican Sound 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 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.
