A family legacy with a strong work ethic. In 1974 Phil McPhail I started McPhail Realty (no United Country Lifestyle Properties of Maine) with an office attached to his home in Howland, Maine. In the mid-80's Phil moved the office to Lincoln.
In 2012 Peter and his Brother Phil took over operations of the company. They purchased a United Country Real Estate franchise and have expanded with locations in Bangor and Lubec.
Peter is a 1991 graduate of Husson University with a degree in Business Administration and a concentration in finance. He holds the Certified Residential Specialist designation (CRS)— only 3% of REALTORS have this elite designation — and the Accredited Land Consultant designation (ALC)— less than 1% of REALTORS have been awarded this coveted designation.
With 27 years of full-time experience, Peter has negotiated hundreds of real estate transactions. Strong negotiating skills, real estate-specific education, and strong work ethic are the three pillars Peter uses to best represent the real estate needs of his clients.
Peter resides in Brewer with his wife Sand and son Carson. When not working, Peter spends time with family enjoying the many outdoor recreational opportunities that Maine has to offer.
If you are buying or selling land and recreational property in Maine, you will find few agents with the knowledge and experience that Phil brings to the table. Phil's land sale volume, education, experience and peer review have qualified him to be awarded the ALC (Accredited Land Consultant) designation by the Realtors Land Institute. This designation is awarded on a national level to only the best of the best in the land business.
The land and recreational market in Maine is complex and always changing. Phil and his team continually study the nuances of what is for sale and currently selling in the market and use this knowledge to assist clients in making the most of their Maine land investment. Phil markets property over a large area of Penobscot, Piscataquis, Hancock, Aroostook, Washington and Waldo Counties among others in Maine.
Land and recreational property sellers want and need an agent with specialized skills and a marketing plan to expose their unique property type to the largest market of qualified buyers. Buyers of these property types want an agent who knows the area, understands value and can effectively help them through the complications that can occur in a real estate transaction. When working with Phil you can be assured that you will get honest advice, superior skill and knowledge from a full time agent who will work hard to be sure your goals are met.
Phil lives in Lincoln, Maine where he and his wife Carmen successfully raised two independent daughters. Phil is a member of the Small Woodland Owners Association of Maine and a supporter of the Forest Society of Maine. When not working in the real estate business he enjoys preparing a good meal, photographing Maine landscapes, fly fishing clear cold rivers, hunting for that elusive big whitetail and improving the timberland he owns with his brother.

Having grown up around real estate agents, Morgan is the third generation to enter into this field. Her parents Phil and Carmen passed along their hard working mentality and love for the Maine outdoors which are the main reasons she decided to join the family business after graduating from the University of Maine, Orono with a degree in marketing. She is still a proud Black Bear!
She worked for McPhail Realty after high school and when deciding on careers during college she realized that real estate was in her blood, so to speak. Being born and raised in the Lincoln area, Morgan moved to the Ellsworth area during college after falling in love with the people and proximity of the ocean.
With an education based on marketing, her extensive knowledge in computer science, creative designing methods and experience as yearbook editor and photographer in high school she has a great recipe for getting the attention of buyers. To put herself through college Morgan has waited tables for years and managed a restaurant in the Ellsworth area giving her great knowledge in customer service to add to her selling techniques.
Morgan lives currently in Ellsworth with her family and their two cats. She is currently training for a half marathon and enjoys fishing, hiking and getting muddy like one of the boys; something she has done her whole life with her family.
I don't just sell real estate, I sell a way of life. This comes from a lifetime of experience with the downeast Maine lifestyle.
I started in the real estate business in 1996 while managing the Mom & Pop store my husband Bill and I owned. I worked my way from sales agent to associate broker to achieving my broker license in 2000. I opened Bold Coast Realty the following year and joined the United Country Real Estate family in 2006.
As a native Mainer, I have been sharing my knowledge of small town coastal living for over 25 years, first in my store and then in real estate. I am committed to providing my clients and customers with individualized service; sharing with them my knowledge of the area and the processes needed to achieve their real estate goals.
I received The Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) from the National Association of Realtors, this is the mark of a real estate professional who has made the commitment to provide a high level of professional services by securing a strong educational foundation. I have served in numerous capacities on the local Board of REALTORS and was voted REALTOR® of the year in 2007.
I specialize in residential and vacant land sales along the Downeast Maine Coast. Within these special property types I specialize in the second home market as well as helping first time home buyers realize there dream of owning a piece of Maine.
For those interested in creating their own vision on vacant land in the country, on the Atlantic Ocean or on any of the many lakes, rivers or streams of eastern Maine, my working knowledge of local rules, regulations and zoning will help bring those goals to fruition. Bill and I reside in Lubec on one of the inner tidal bays. In my spare time, I enjoy being active in the community, time with family, sewing, gardening, rock collecting and genealogy.
