Belfast Homes – A Small Town in the Heart of Midcoast Maine
The Belfast area was first discovered over 200 years ago by John Mitchell, a New Hampshire resident, traveling by ship from Boston to points east. The town was founded in 1773. During the 1800s, the prosperous shipbuilders and merchants built beautiful Greek Revival, Colonial and Victorian mansions throughout the area. Generations of lobstermen work the same waters that their forefathers did. Local shop keepers ensure that the area's small-town New England charm carries on while a healthy economy supported by tourism and the creative arts continues to lure new residents and businesses to our area at a steady pace.
In September 2008, Belfast was named one of the 10 Coolest Small Towns in the U.S. by The good food, culture and quality of life usually reserved for larger, metropolitan cities can be found right here in this coastal Maine gathering of artisans aplenty.

About Thelma

When I arrived to live in Northport, Maine from just outside of Boston many years ago, I was amazed and amused by the "BUMP" signs along the route to our new home. Of course, I have come to understand them much better now. 

Like most people, my life has had its ups and downs. I left school to work, met a local Maine boy, married him and after 47 years, he still affectionately reminds me I am an "outer-stater." I was happy to work in several local factories to pay bills and help put food on the table for our family that grew to five with our three awesome children. 
At age 26, I decided to get my GED then began taking college courses at the University of Maine Augusta, where I earned my Associates Degree. From there, I began taking courses in an external degree program with Southwest University. After much work and responsibility- juggling, I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and eventually a Master of Science in Social Work. 
My interest in working with people was enriched by a management position at Tall Pines Health Care Facility and by working at Waldo County Home Health. When you reach out to others, you are amazed at what you receive back. As the saying goes, "to gather we must give." I have been blessed to work in this wonderful city with amazing and caring people. 
A dear family friend encouraged me to consider a real estate career. Thanks to Realty of Maine owner Dave Sleeper, I have become part of an exciting and rewarding profession. At this time in life, I continue to offer real estate services in Belfast and Waldo County. For this, I am grateful. I am proud to serve as a Maine Realtor®. 
Enjoy today, it is a precious gift!!
“We definitely had a positive experience with Thelma on this third transaction with her. Thelma is personable, professional, tactful, sensitive and diplomatic. She was always responsive to our questions and/or input and went out of her way to do whatever had to be done to sell our home. She was very observant to repairs or changes to the home that we could not see that would help sell it. She coordinated an open house for our home even though open houses are not a common occurrence in that area. We especially liked her help in pricing. She came in with a price that was competitive, yet did not give the home away. We received several offers and were happy with the outcome. We would recommend Thelma to everyone.” Dec 2016
“Thelma was great! She sold us this house 9 years ago, so we called her to sell it this time too. It was a good experience and Thelma was most helpful with everything. We would recommend Thelma to any one in a quick minute.” August 2016 
"Thelma is great!" Oct 2015

“My husband and I wanted to let you know that there is not a category that you could come up with that I would not give that wonderful woman Thelma Bowen a 110%. She was a peach to work with and we never had any issues with her. Thelma always went above and beyond what was expected. We would recommend her to everyone we know.” Aug 2015

“Thelma is a wonderful person. She did really, really well for me. She is caring and so takes much attention with the details….even the little things that you think do not matter. So thorough. I would absolutely refer Thelma to everyone.” July 2015

“I have worked with a lot of real estate agents in my life and Thelma was by far the best ever!  She was always calm and even-tempered. She kept me posted on everything and sold my place in two weeks. I would recommend Thelma to everyone.” June 2015
