In the complex process of buying and selling real estate, the needs of the client come first for Ed. He joined Sotheby’s in 2008 with Legacy Properties SIR in Portland, Maine working out of the Camden office. He has since transitioned into the Charleston market with Daniel Ravenel SIR. With rapid changes in technology, Ed is keenly aware of using state of the art tools to assist clients in making the process of buying and selling property as enjoyable and seamless as possible.
A native of North Carolina, Ed holds an MBA in Finance from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He is also a former U.S. Marine Corps officer. His career in international corporate banking included senior management positions with Credit Suisse emphasizing marketing, advertising and public relations. Combining these skills with a passion for architecture helps Ed to navigate the challenges of the real estate sales process.
Believing strongly in serving the communities where we choose to live, Ed has extensive experience working with non-profits in various roles from volunteer to board chairman. Some of these include Habitat for Humanity, Rotary, Silvermine Guild Arts Center, and Bay Chamber Concerts.
Ed’s commitment to his clients is simple: results, backed by integrity and professionalism.

“Edgar Mitchell - We will certainly think of you in the future. If we see another old historical building that intrigues us we will give you a call to consult. “
-Mary & Robert W
“We recently completed the purchase of a lot with the able assistance and guidance of Edgar Mitchell. Our experience with the Sotheby's Realty office and with Ed Mitchell, in particular, was nothing short of extraordinary. Through Ed’s in-depth knowledge of the real estate market, his vast network of professional contacts with attorneys, bankers, insurance agents, and architects, and his strategic command of the negotiation process, we were able to develop and successfully offer a purchase price in a matter of a few short days that was both within budget and acceptable to seller.
But the great Sotheby's Realty experience did not stop there—Ed continued to provide much needed advice throughout the process, offering seasoned counsel and up-to-the-minute information on developments and schedule changes leading up to the Closing. Using text messaging, email, and old-fashioned telephone, Ed’s diligence, persistence, and courteous professional demeanor help make the entire transaction, from our remote vantage point in Connecticut, appear seamless and easy.
When we did visit before Closing, Ed arranged for us to meet with the developer/owner, the builder of several houses in the subdivision, the stone mason, an excellent architect, the soon-to-be new neighbors, and even topped it off with assisting us with a dinner reservation. Ed was also there to walk the property line and to point out the topography and history of the adjacent area, based on a knowledge that is only developed through vast experience and passion for the real estate profession.
We thoroughly enjoyed the entire Sotheby's Realty experience and are indebted to Ed Mitchell for his professionalism, hard work, and expertise in getting the job done—and done extremely well.

“Thank you Edgar Mitchell for your thorough, thoughtful and principled handling of this transaction. You were always insightful and candid and we felt we were working with someone straightforward and honest. Makes all the difference.”
-Jay & Leslie S
“I found Edgar Mitchell to be the most professional agent I have ever worked with. We ran into several problems with the buyers and Ed worked tirelessly to solve the problems so the closing could take place. I would recommend Ed Mitchell to everyone. He is honest and works very hard.”
“To say that our condo-hunting experience with Edgar Mitchell was a success is a gross understatement. We not only found Ed to be a professional and expert in his trade, but also enjoyed his friendly and caring demeanor while helping us search for the condo that best fit our wants, needs, and economic pursuits. He was extremely patient as he drove us to a wide variety of condo options, many of which he toured with us more than once. Ed exhibits a supreme attention to detail not only during the search process, but also during the subsequent property inspection and final contract and closing documents. We could not be happier with our new home in Maine and we realize that the hours of enjoyment that this new home has brought us and our family would not have been possible without the expert help that Ed provided. Because of our experience, we are now proud to think of him as a valuable friend.”
