Aaren grew up in Lyndonville, VT and attended Lyndon Institute. He then furthered his education at Lyndon State College graduating with a degree in Radio Communications/Marketing. His career continued at Umpire Professional Baseball focusing on radio marketing and has since been a standout in the hospitality industry, including working at The Mount Washington Hotel and owning a craft pizza restaurant in the North East Kingdom of Vermont.
Now living in North Yarmouth and enjoying the Maine coast, Aaren is knowledgeable and passionate about his community. When he’s not helping people find their dream home, he can be found exploring the great state of Maine, fishing with his grown son, Colby, or taking in a live concert with his fiancé, Ashli.
With Aaren’s professionalism, ability to adapt to his client's needs and the desire to make his client happy, he has a passion for real estate. That, paired with the ability to listen to his clients and work with different financial needs, he can connect with clients and understand them, their wants and individualized needs. Aaren comes to Fontaine with his sales agent license, is a member of the Greater Portland Area board of REALTORS and looks forward to serving both home buyers and home sellers with the support of the Fontaine Team. Aaren will be primarily working out of the Auburn location.

"Aaren James was a very personable agent. He answered all the questions we asked and found out the answers he did not know. He went to all the houses we wanted to see. Two days worth! When we went on vacation, he walked me through filling all the paperwork on my phone. By the end of the month, we were owners of our new home!"

"I would recommend Fontaine Family to anyone buying or selling a home. They work more like a family sharing resources, knowledge, and experiences than one broker working alone. Our Broker, Aaren James continually went above and beyond what I had expected, working as a knowledgeable lighthearted friend helping us through the process of buying and selling our homes. Aaren has always been there when we needed him regardless of where he was and what he was doing. Now that we are moving into our new home, the Fontaine Family team is helping us by letting us use one of their moving vans. We are looking forward to working with Aaren and the Fontaine Family team as we get ready to put our old home on the market."

"Aaren is fantastic. My husband and I have been looking for a forever home. Aaren has been working very hard to help us with that the past month. He is a great listener, very motivated and caring. Aaren will go out of his way to make sure he know about the house, he is showing before he shows it. If he does not have the answer, he will get the answer. He is just great and we appreciate him very much. He responds very quickly to calls and messages. I would definitely recommend Aaren James if you are looking to buy a home. He’s fantastic!!"
