Located in the center of the York County Lakes Region our agency was founded by Richard "Duffy" Leach in the early 1930's. In 1970 we moved to our present location at the Foot of Mousam Lake, and since then we have specialized in the sale and management of lakefront and country properties. We believe we are the oldest real estate firm in the State of Maine, which is still owned and operated by the original family.
This painting was done 1905 +/- of the original building where our office now is situated. It was a blacksmith shop, which later was moved to Springvale, Maine, where it still stands.
All of our brokers are licensed in Maine and New Hampshire in order to better serve our clientele who own properties on the border lakes. Experience counts and the total number of years our agents have been licensed is more than 65! We also provide Summer Cottage Rentals on most of the area lakes, during the 12-week season.

Another Independent Brokerage Converts:
Welcome EXIT Key Real Estate in Shapleigh, ME!
EXIT Realty is Growing with another real estate brokerage opening!
Shapleigh, Maine (Grassroots Newswire) March 29, 2011 -- Tami Bonnell, President of the US Organization of EXIT Realty Corp. International, is pleased to announce the addition of EXIT Key Real Estate, under the direction of Elias Thomas, as an EXIT Realty franchisee.
"Elias is a real estate expert and has been working in the Shapleigh market for more than thirty years. He quickly recognized the value of the EXIT Realty Formula, and we are thrilled to have him join the US Organization of EXIT Realty Corp. International," said Bonnell. "We wanted to provide these great benefits to our agents," added Thomas, who was the Owner of Key Real Estate Inc., which was home to a number of real estate professionals in the Shapleigh area. They officially became EXIT Key Real Estate on March 17, 2011.
"My father-in-law started our agency in 1932," said Thomas. "He was a character - always in Bermuda shorts and smoking a cigar. After Jane and I married he talked to us about opening an office in a different town so we opened in Shapleigh where we're presently located. The big red key outside our office has become a landmark in the area. Jane and I took over the business when my father-in-law passed away in '71, changed the name to Key Real Estate Inc. and we've been diligently working in this business since then. Now we're excited to be part of the EXIT Realty family."
EXIT Realty provides sales associates with residual income over and above their own transactions and an enhanced retirement and beneficiary benefit; all of which have been unheard of in the real estate industry until now.
"We look forward to assisting both past and new customers with their real estate needs," said Thomas.
EXIT Key Real Estate is located at 20 Emery Mills Road in Shapleigh. For more information, please call 207-636-2222.
