A couple looking for a summer rental asked Belle for her assistance and she happily obliged. Soon she found herself working full-time finding rental properties for other visitors to Northeast Harbor thus launching a long and successful career in real estate for her and her family. Miss Smallidge operated her business from an office in the Joy Building on Main Street which also housed the law office of Jerome Henry Knowles.They soon fell in love and married in 1903. Remarkably her marriage did not mark the end of Belles professional career as it did for many women of that era. In fact her career flourished and the marriage produced a son Jerome KnowlesJr. who later joined his mother in the business. At the age of 70 Belle traveled to New Orleans to attend Tulane University where she received a Member of Appraisal Institute degree making her the first person in Maine and the third woman in the country to receive such a distinction A Family Tradition In 1933 Jerome Knowles Jr. joined his mother in the business nine years later his wife Evelyn came on board as a real estate broker. In 1949 the business incorporated as The Knowles Company. It expanded to include statewide appraisal services in 1950.The family tradition continued when their daughter Kathryn worked summers in the real estate office doing photography for her fathers appraisals. Kathryns husbandRobert Suminsbybegan working atThe Knowles Company in 1958 as a broker.Twelve years laterBob managed the appraisal end of the business. Bob and Kathy puchased The Knowles Company in 1972 from her parents and subsequently opened a branch in Southwest Harbor.Within fifteen years they had opened a third branch in Ellsworth and their son Jerome had joined the business.
