Our Team


Lisa Blinn

Lisa brings more than 25 years’ experience in real estate, home building and property management to the Mariner Realty team. Blending her passions for real estate and interior design, Lisa and her husband Clay created the family business Blinn Homes and Design. Lisa was integral to the success of the firm which bought and built investment properties, renovating, renting and selling for a profit.

Through this experience, Lisa developed a comprehensive understanding of where the values exist in homes and she has the expertise to help you buy and sell real estate.

Although Lisa and her husband moved to Oriental in late 2022, her mother has lived here for more than 30 years and Oriental has been a vacation destination for all those years. Lisa and her husband are both veterans and they were stationed at Cherry Point during their military service. Lisa is completely familiar with the town and Pamlico County and values the sense of community found in the Village of Oriental. Her two daughters, Claire and Lacey, are in the local schools and love it here. Lisa bought properties in Oriental in 2021 and early 2022, renovating both homes and converting one to an Airbnb. She manages the short-term rental in the heart of Oriental and brings this service to the Mariner team.

Lisa serves on the board of the Pamlico County Chamber of Commerce as the representative business owner and she is also on the board of Oriental’s Old Theater.
