Meet Our Team ...

We have adopted a team approach which enables us to deliver a higher standard of service and exceed client expectations.


Spencer Baker - Licenced Assistant & Buyer's Representative

Born and raised in Smiths Falls, Spencer attended Queen’s University. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts - Political Science, he decided to relocate and make the Kingston area his permanent home.  Soon thereafter, Spencer made the decision to go into real estate and hasn’t looked back since. Recently, Spencer joined The Hinton Team as a “Licensed Assistant & Buyer’s Representative” and feels like he has finally found the perfect “home” for his skillset and talents.

Spencer is a hard-working, determined and competent individual who is committed to both his teammates and his clients. He has a very patient, genuine and personalized approach which makes us confident that he will serve our clients well.  Through his education, sports teams and volunteering, Spencer has built a strong network across Eastern Ontario. Both The Hinton Team and his clients will benefit from Spencer’s broad network and the many Real Estate-related services and helpful connections it can provide.
