The focus of my work experience has been on business organization and management.  

Tom and I owned and operated a successful restaurant in Bradenton Beach for over 25 years, where we established many business and community relationships that still hold strong today. Our focus turned to finance as my role was administrator for our financial services company, dedicated to managing investments and 401k plans. From there we transitioned to investing in commercial real estate where I handled all administrative duties.

I am also proud to have chaired and co-chaired many fund raisers throughout all my children’s schooling and my church’s community youth projects where I was lead youth group supervisor. I love working with people and I love real estate, which is why I have joined the Coldwell Banker team as a full time Realtor. I believe that buying and selling a home is one of the most important decisions you will make. I want to help individuals, couples and families to make good decisions for their future and to have an exciting and positive experience while doing so. My goal is not quantity but quality…I am dedicated to making it happen for every client I work with. 




Business background:

Since 1981 I have called the west coast of Florida home! After almost 25 years as a successful restaurant owner in Bradenton Beach, FL, I transitioned into finance, starting my own financial firm serving clients investment needs and 401k plans. After selling the firm to my partner I followed my interest in commercial real estate, where I renovated, bought and sold properties along with doing 1031 exchanges. 

I have been on both sides of a business deal, and have developed strong negotiation skills, having negotiated buy and sell deals, contracts and leases with tenants and landlords along with property management. 

You will find my professional work ethic and dedication at the Coldwell Banker St. Armand’s office. Whether you are buying or selling a home, I bring exceptional concierge service, communication, and a commitment to help you reach your goals. Financial discipline, management and attention to detail, which are all essential.

I have served as volunteer and fundraiser throughout all my children’s schooling as well as my church. I have worked with the local Kiwanis Club raising money for local charities and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

" We recently closed on our dream condo in Bradenton, Fl. thanks with the help from Caldwell Banker's, Billie and Tom Chipain. Their expertise and knowledge throughout process was exemplary. As a team, they were there to answer any questions we had. Billie and Tom have their clients interests at heart. We felt very comfortable doing our long distance purchase with them. Their response time to our emails, phone calls and texts were timely. "Team Chipain," as we like to call them, were a pleasure to work with. They are knowledgeable, caring and kind. Billie's attention to detail and Toms financial knowledge make them a "dynamic duo!" They are both a pleasure to work with and made our transition to our Florida vacation home a dream come true. We would highly recommend them to all our family and friends. We look forward to enjoying the Sunshine State in the years to come. Beth & Terrence"

"Thomas and Billie are wonderful! They went above and beyond helping our family sell my Mom's / families house. They took care of a lot of loose things that we were not able to due to geographical distance .The Chipain Team staged my Mom's house and listed it and It sold instantly with their guidance and help. Thomas and Billie had our families' interests and well-being taken care of with no family being there- they kept us well informed and answered our questions and concerns every time. I hope you choose The Chipain team - They are awesome! "

"Dear Tom and Billie, Now that I have closed escrow and have moved into my new home in Bradenton, I wanted to reach back out to you both with this letter of appreciation and recommendation to other future clients considering using your professional realtor services. This is the third real estate purchase I have made in my life, and I have to say this was by far my best experience of any of those home purchases. This was the first time that I ever purchased a place in an area that I did not live, and you both made me feel very comfortable and at ease with no pressure. I had a feeling of full trust that you both had my best interest in mind. Over the two year process of discussing buying a property and visiting potential places to buy, your patience, professionalism, and concern for me was the best. You made me feel like I was almost a member of your family. I would and will recommend you both to anyone that is looking for a home in the Sarasota or Bradenton areas, Thanks again, "

  -Thomas B., Client

"Our sale was not straight forward as we are non US residents and we were unable to be present during the selling process due to Covid 19. This brought additional work for Billie and Tom, but right from the outset, nothing has been too much trouble for them. We cannot recommend them highly enough for their attention to detail and willingness to make the sale go through as smoothly as possible. Thank you so much"
