Our Associates and Staff
Edmund "Tate" Aylward - P.O. Box 66, Lincoln, ME 04457 • 794-2139

Owner, Office Manager, Designated Broker and Full-time Sales Associate. My real estate experience extends back to late 1983 when I began selling my family's own real estate at the age of fourteen. After dropping out of college, I was first licensed as an agent to broker property in early 1988 at the age of 19. I worked part-time in real estate while attending Hard Knocks University in Laboror's Local #1377 until my father's passing in 1993. I then took over management of the family business for my mother and purchased the business from her in 2000.

Peter Phinney - P.O. Box 468, Lincoln, ME 04457 • 794-6827. Broker, Survey Technician. As a graduate of Mattanawcook Academy, I started the journey as a self-employed potato farmer for four years. Then I started working as a Survey Technician and became a Maine licensed Real Estate Broker in 1985. For the last sixteen years, I've worked at the two with success. I've been married for twenty years, and have two sons. Hunting is a passion of mine, so call for an appointment in the fall.

Kirk A. Ritchie -
P.O. Box 342, Lee, ME 04455 • 738-2123 Associate Broker. Born and raised in Maine. Most of my childhood our family lived in Patten, a lumbering town an hour north of Lincoln. I have three brothers, all of whom still reside in Maine with their families.

After an extensive courtship, I was finally able to coerce/bribe my wife to marry me on May 4, 1996 (I think!). We now live in Lee, with two Akita dogs, on a beautiful 37-acre piece of land (which, if you are interested, could be purchased for the right price). My blushing bride is a high school teacher, coach, and a very patient woman - thank God. I graduated from Katahdin High School, where my dad was principal, in 1978. I attended the University of Maine for a year and then transferred to Saint Joseph's College, where I graduated honors with a BA in business management in 1983.

Since my college graduation, I have primarily been self-employed and have owned part, or all of, a half dozen small businesses. From 1989-1991 I worked as a consultant in California and Virginia. For the next nine years I worked as a Maine licensed Private Investigator. I also was resident director of the Lee Academy dormitory and coached two varsity sports at the school. And I have been co-owner of the Springfield Fair, with one of my brothers, since April of 1991. (This is also for sale to the right buyer(s)).Since December of 1999, I have been licensed in real estate and working for Tate Aylward (my cousin) at CWA & Lake St. Real Estate. I believe that working here will be my final, official job. We have a fun, professional staff who all enjoy coming to work in the morning. I have always enjoyed selling, love Northern Maine and am now able to hunt, fish and camp, etc. - all while I work at buying and selling real estate. Life is good.

With a long history of handling real estate transactions in our office, we started our first office in Lincoln in 1959. We have many return clients and customers who appreciate the relaxed, knowledgeable atmosphere. If you are interested in buying or selling property anywhere in this general area, we would look forward to the opportunity to work with you. Give me a call at home or the office. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
