About James

Born and raised in Augusta, Maine, Aaron first moved to Mount Desert Island over 20 years ago. His love of boats, hiking and Acadia’s natural beauty made it inevitable that he would settle here full time. He began his real estate career after a previous career in banking. Aaron found the flexibility of real estate to be a nice complement to his work as an artist, as he currently has a studio in Northeast Harbor. He and his wife/real estate partner, Erika Wibby Mitchell, now reside in Northeast Harbor with their 3 young children and work together at The Swan Agency Sotheby’s International Realty.

Aaron works with buyer and sellers in residential transactions on Mount Desert Island.

Aaron’s favorite part about Maine is the change of seasons. He continues to support his community through volunteer work at the Neighborhood House, the Northeast Harbor Library and has been a volunteer with the Red Cross.  In his free time he enjoys fishing, camping and snowboarding.
