About Us

In 2019 Jim Matel and Alitha Young identified an opportunity to establish themselves as a premier real estate firm in the Midcoast area, and the vision for Peninsula Properties was born. Their aspirations materialized in early 2023 when both obtained their broker licenses, subsequently acquiring Farrin Properties. This strategic move allowed them to solidify a reputation for excellence in Lincoln County, where they have facilitated many successful real estate transactions.

As partners, Jim and Alitha contribute diverse skill sets and extensive experience to Peninsula Properties. Alitha's professional background in accounting and finance within the commercial real estate sector, coupled with her proficiency in interior design and decoration, enhances the agency's offerings including staging services. Jim, known for his personable nature, brings a lifetime of entrepreneurial expertise, specializing in sales and management. Beyond real estate, Jim also owns and operates Round Pond Coffee and The Common House Wine Bar with his family, reflecting his deep ties to the local community.

The distinct and complementary skill sets of Jim and Alitha, combined with their active community involvement, establishes Peninsula Properties as a provider of unparalleled quality and authenticity in real estate services. Having surpassed $20 million in sales in its inaugural year in 2023, Peninsula Properties takes pride in serving both buyers and sellers in Lincoln, Knox, Kennebec, and Waldo counties.
