Spencer recently helped us with our Kingston home purchase and we were extremely satisfied. We will be personally returning to him, and it is our pleasure to recommend Spencer as a realtor to others. He is easy to get along with and showed a genuine concern and commitment in finding our ideal house both during and after the home buying process. We have recommended Spencer to family members also in the market, who have had positive experiences as well.

“Working with Spencer was an absolute pleasure. Buying a home can be a very stressful process for first-time home buyers, especially those new to the city. Spencer proved to be patient, informative and dedicated, creating an exceptional customer experience and facilitating a quick close. He not only answered all of our questions and fulfilled all of our requests, but remained a constant communicator throughout the process. Thanks to him, we found a great home we absolutely love and we’ve gained a great friend. We will undoubtedly engage him for any future home purchases and refer him to our friends and family. We can’t thank him enough for all his hard work!”
 
A professional team that carried the stress of home buying for us. Awesome team.

Jim provided us with courteous and expeditious service. We were impressed by his knowledge and familiarity with the local market and were pleased that he always acted with our best interest in mind. Jim was always reachable and accomodating - even while on vacation!

M&P Drogosiewicz
Jim, as you are aware, we moved to the Kingston area due to a government transfer.  With very little knowledge of the area, the market, and relatively no experience with the local builders, we were definitely at a bit of a disadvantage.  Our luck and situation quickly transitioned upon meeting and beginning to do business with you. We quickly realized that we had met a knowledgeable, intelligent, kind and conscientious professional. Your honesty, integrity and patience in educating us within the Kingston market was a breath of fresh air and allowed us to find a top quality home which we truly loved.

 
When it came time for us to sell, your expertise was once again unbelievable and enabled us to obtain an offer on our home within 24 hours at the price that we were looking for.  Jim…you are a truly superior agent who we are proud to have done business with.  Thank you for everything you did to help us make our time in Kingston a happy one. You and your team have been unmatched and that is why a) we have advised all that we know within our professional and personal lives, to seek out your assistance and b) there will be absolutely no question about who will be representing us when we receive word of our next transfer in the area.

D. & W. Jones
Jim Hinton is an ethical realtor that values honesty and customer satisfaction over short-term profit.  Each of the many showings that he did for us included an in-depth, insightful assessment of the property and how it would, or would not, meet our needs.  He graciously answered all of our questions and left no concern unchecked.  His considerable experience and professional presentation inspired confidence at every step of the process, and his advice was always on the mark, guided by his mantra of ‘putting ourselves in the other person's shoes’.  The result: an expedient, hassle-free sale of our existing home, and the purchase of a beautiful new home that exceeded our requirements.  It is without hesitation that we endorse the services of Jim Hinton and his adept staff with the highest possible recommendation.

Jason and Rachel Erb
Jim Hinton is so thorough that one would assume he is the actual client looking to purchase a home. We would not hesitate to recommend Jim to our family, friends and co-workers.

S & C Turner
Jim and his team took responsibility to provide expertise in a very difficult, life-change situation. They dealt with each step of the process as advisors in a very professional and compassionate manner. I was very grateful for the touch of class and kindness.

E.K.
Jim Hinton provided us with professional service that fulfilled our every expectation. His sincere and caring attitude put us at ease throughout the negotiations and his demeanor helped to calm us when needed during the completion of our purchase. Our move to Kingston was made an enjoyable experience largely because of Jim and The Hinton Team.  You can be assured that The Hinton Team will be our #1 Recommmendation - Always!

G & K Buxton
Through a few transactions that took place over several months, I only received Jim's voicemail once!  He is just that available and committed to his clients.

C&D B.
Just a quick note to thank you for helping us to find the home of our dreams.

Thanks to your staff for all of their hard work, too!   
                                                                
B & J Pellow
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Jim and John Hinton for their outstanding performance on our recent purchase.  Upon our first meeting with Jim and John, it was evident that they weren't just going through the actions of doing their job.... they were living it.  By that, we mean that they paid attention to all of our needs and their genuine kindness and constant upbeat attitude  - along with a non-pushy sales approach - make them great real estate agents.  So if you are still deciding who you want to be your realtor, we would highly recommend Jim and John, as they will honestly be with you every step of the way.


Jim…Thanks so much for going “above & beyond” your call of duty.

M & G Deanike
As a sales professional, I know how to recognize the best and I believe that you are doing an excellent job of positioning yourselves at the very top of your field. Your attention to detail and caring concern for your clients is exceptional!

"Moving from another province to Kingston was made infinitely easier by the real estate agent we found through a Kingston RE/MAX office.  The service we received at the care of Jim Hinton has been unparalleled.  Jim spent endless hours with us, helping to refine our search and giving us a comprehensive overview of Kingston and the surrounding area.  His efficiency and support made buying a house an easy process.  Based on our previous experiences with other real estate agents, we can say with confidence that the level of integrity and professionalism shown by Jim and the support staff on the Hinton team is extraordinary.  We are very thankful to have found Jim and continue to be grateful for his help as we make our transition to Kingston."
