Lisa Gilpin has been buying and selling properties since age 22. Her passion for real estate combined with her expertise in dealing with people and a strong financial background make Lisa the ideal choice for any customer or client seeking optimal purchases, rental or sales results. She grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, and graduated from Xavier College Preparatory and Grand Canyon College, where she earned BS degrees in business administration and accounting with a minor in Spanish, in which she is fluent. Before moving to New York City in 1990, she worked as the Controller for International Conference Resorts and its seven wholly owned subsidiaries. In New York she served as a tax consultant to the Ford Foundation and then opened her own accounting business before pursuing a master's degree in social work at Stony Brook University. She spent several years in private practice as a psychotherapist in New York and Long Island, honing her great understanding of people and her ability to tune into their unique needs.
After moving from New York City to Eastern Long Island, Lisa has seen her client base evolve naturally over time. She has earned a reputation as a trusted and valued Hamptons broker. Before settling in her current home on Shelter Island, she spent 10 years in Sagaponack and three years in Orient. Because she enjoys her home, garden and the unique beauty of the South Fork and its environs, Lisa brings a wealth of knowledge and enjoyment in helping others secure their dream lifestyle.
Lisa's commitment to causes outside of real estate complement her professional career. She is involved in counseling, has been a past trustee of her church, is a former trustee and chair of the Finance Committee of the Oysterponds Historical Society, and a past president of the PTSA Board of Shelter Island and past treasurer of the Garden Club of Shelter Island. She enjoys playing tennis, snow skiing, gardening, studying piano, tap dancing with The Step Sistas and taking her dog Meriwether to the beach. Club affiliations include The Yale Club of NYC, The Merion Cricket Club, The Bridgehampton Club and The Garden Club of Shelter Island. She looks forward to putting her patience, upbeat nature, persistence, knowledge of the Hamptons and professionalism to work for you.
