Meet Barbara Hill

Barb is a native of Hanover Park, Illinois with family roots in northwest Illinois. Her grandparents were residents of nearby Freeport, Illinois. For a period spanning 15 years, Barb was employed as a church secretary in Bartlett, Illinois, creating a foundation of public service. Barb then accepted a position with a Chicago suburban law firm specializing in real estate transactions.

It was there that Barb caught the real estate “bug”, assisting one of the law firm’s principals in working with clients buying and selling property. With her husband, Raoul “Jeep” Hill, retiring from the Hanover Park police force after 30 years of service, Barb decided to spread her wings on a new venture to take classes in real estate… and the whirlwind began.

At the same time, with their children grown, in 2005 they decided to sell their home, buy a boat and move to quieter, more secure surroundings. In their extensive search for a home, they were drawn to the beauty and tranquility of Lake Carroll. Just months after purchasing a home at Lake Carroll, Barb accepted a position as office manager with Fawnridge Realty, Inc. With the encouragement of Owner/broker Wayne Wilhelm and after much hard work, Barb received her Realtors license in 2008. She soon discovered her love of finding the right home for her clients.
