About Me About Me

Ashley was born and raised in Farmington, CT and has lived in Hartford County for most of her life.  She currently resides in Avon with her husband, two young children and many animals.  Ashley’s husband, Travis, is a General Contractor and they have both remodeled and flipped many homes throughout the state. 

Ashley graduated with a BS in Biomolecular Science and completed her first year post-grad focusing on pre-med.  After graduating, Ashley worked in medical sales covering all of New England as her territory.  After a fantastic run in that industry, she transitioned into her family owned e-commerce business which she successfully ran for 15 years.  She launched many other e-commerce websites and helped develop product lines that were carried in stores like Macy’s, Bloomingdales and TJX.   

After many years of e-commerce, and the ever changing atmosphere of that business, she decided to move into residential real estate to work directly with the consumers helping them with the many aspects of the home buying and selling process.  Ashley has always recognized that real estate sales is a very personalized business and she is passionate about helping people on an individual level to achieve the dream of home ownership.  Her business and sales background, combined with her keen eye and love of design, staging and remodeling, has made her into a very successful real estate advisor throughout Connecticut.  

When Ashley is not listing and selling homes she is very active with her children and their early athletic careers. Her son plays on one of Connecticut's top club lacrosse teams, and her daughter is an avid young equestrian.  Ashley has a deep love for animals, she is very involved with the equestrian community throughout New England and owns 4 horses, 3 of which live at her home in Avon.  She is passionate about animal welfare and rescue.  On any given day, you can spark a wonderful conversation about her next project, or 4 legged friend in need of help.

Ashley has been helping me look for options for new houses around the Avon Farmington area. She has shown me a plethora of options and I am extremely happy and relieved with her attentiveness and patience with this process. She has been wonderful!
Being a first-time home buyer, I needed someone reliable, patient, and willing to guide me through all the small steps involved in home buying. Ashley did just that. She was extremely helpful, eager, and proactive and showed an extremely personal interest in making sure we found a place that we loved. There was a lot of uncertainty on my end in making decisions in some instances but Ashley was very understanding and a helpful advisor. She is very flexible in her availability and makes sure that she is there when you need her, be it on the weekends or late hours of the day. She is new in this business and is still learning a few things as she progresses in this field but at no stage did I feel that I need to talk to someone else or find another realtor. I have already recommended Ashley to a colleague of mine who is also thinking of buying a home. All in all, it was a great experience working with Ashley, and would always consider her for future needs.
My husband and I have been over the moon thrilled to be given the opportunity to work with Ashley. As we get ready to start our next adventure she has made it a walk in the park with selling our home and finding our next step dream home. She is very knowledgeable with a personality that makes you feel as if you’ve known her your whole life. She is always early to appointments and very response time via text, email or phone is within seconds. It truly is a pleasure working with her.
Ashley does a great job of aligning with the needs of my family providing us with truly viable options to consider. As a first-time homeowner with clear must-haves and could haves requirements, she was able to guide me through the process to an outcome that my friends are shocked by. She is flexible, agile, responsive, and easygoing and provided a ton of resources for me to do my due diligence. I endorse Ashley Backman based on a good experience and great results! I will definitely consider her for future needs.

Ashley is diligent, attentive, available and innovative. I was impressed with the number of media outlets where I suddenly say the home I was listing within hours of our retaining her as our agent. She made the process of buying and selling very comfortable. She also knew the Canton area very well. Highly recommended.
Fabulous agent! She priced our house right and sold our home in one week. Brought multiple offers and had the agreement signed within 24 hours. She is professional, responsive and very proactive. She is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend Ashley Backman to anyone.
Ashley was an absolute pleasure to work with the entire way through. She was patient, knowledgeable and a fantastic advocate of me as a buyer throughout the entire process. I cannot thank Ashley enough for the role she played in my experience, and plan on recommending her to absolutely anyone and everyone I know in the area thinking of purchasing/selling a home.
Ashley was knowledgeable and professional. She was always available when we found a house we wanted to see. She helped us every step of the way through our purchase and our sale! Thank you Ashley!
