Locally owned & operated


Bill and Cathy Bishop have lived in Barrington since 1971.  Initially Bill commuted 

daily on the train to downtown Chicago; however, in 1976 they started their own business out of the back of the house.  


They purchased 840 S Northwest in 1980 to accommodate an expanding 

business and staff that came along with that growth.  In 1992, they completed a major renovation, doubling the size of the building while upgrading many of its amenities as we needed even more space.    


In 2006, Bill had interest in starting a new business while Cathy wanted to retire and enjoy being Nana to her grandkids.  The business was sold to the partners, who continued to occupy the offices through the end of 2015 when they were acquired and relocated.  During that entire time Bill had an office at the location as he wanted an office away from but still close to home.


Bill still maintains an active office at 840 S Northwest Hwy and is there most days when not traveling.  And, his son David, who has his own business and is also a Barrington resident, now also takes advantage of the convenience and comforts that 840 S Northwest offers.
