OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A

remarkable real
estate experience.

We exist to help.

Anytime you're preparing for a real estate transaction, it can be equal parts thrilling and unnerving. There's a lot on the line, after all, and too many steps in a complex process that can easily fall apart.

We get it, not only because we've stood where you are, but because we've been helping people buy and sell homes in a beachside market for the last decade and a half. We consider it an honor to walk alongside you, understand your goals, and help you build your best plan to achieve them.

We do this work not because we have to, but because we get to.

TRUTH IS —

It can be hard to know who to trust.

Here are a few things you should know about our approach.

You'll be heard

You'll be heard.

There is no cookie-cutter strategy for real estate in Venice. We listen carefully to your goals, then build a plan for you to get what you want.

You'll be informed

You'll be informed.

There are about 150 steps to the buying or selling process. We'll navigate them on your behalf and keep you informed of the progress.

You'll be proud

You'll be proud.

The truest measure of our success is how you feel at closing. We'll do everything in our power to ensure you've landed a deal you love.

We can't wait to meet you.

IN THE MEANTIME, HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT US —

Chris Shiparski

Hi, I'm Chris. After completing a tour in the United States Army, which included the honor of serving as a sentinel at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, I worked at a boutique law firm, where I learned the art of negotiation, an in-depth understanding of contracts, and the importance of performing due diligence.

As a Broker Associate, I have served on the Venice Area Board of Realtors’ Professional Standards Committee and am dedicated to the preservation of high ethical standards. Most importantly, I love what I do. It's an honor to help!

Betsie Shiparski

Hello, I'm Betsie. I've been a licensed Florida Realtor for 15 years. I am the marketing coordinator and have an eye (and a love) for the details. I work with sellers to position their homes in a way that will help land the highest bids in the least amount of time.

As a dual Swiss citizen, I speak German, French, and Italian and enjoy the opportunity to assist both national and international buyers and sellers with their sunny Florida homes. For me, it's about the people we work with. I can't wait to meet you!

Hi, I'm Barb, the Transaction & Customer Care Coordinator for the Shiparski Group. I find great meaning in helping to alleviate the natural stressors our clients feel when buying and selling their homes.

I work hard behind the scenes to ensure that all the critical tasks are completed, keeping the transaction running smoothly at all times. I truly enjoy providing exceptional service to our customers.

Recently I have sold two homes with the Shiparski Group. Chris surprises me every time with how in tune he is with the market. Both times he has made what I thought at the time were bold calls, but he managed to bring me two full price offers in 24 hours! Betsie gives wonderful staging advice and works very closely with their photographer to bring about extraordinary photos. Barb handles all the paperwork and details with precision. The Shiparski Group are a “10” in my estimation!
