Greetings and salutations!
Assurance Home Service of Hampshire, Illinois, has earned Accredited Member status in the NHWA.
In 1996, President Kathleen Carr opened a landscape and garden center business. Over the years, she has fostered her love of beautifying homes through the use of flowers. Kathleen’s passion for helping people care for their homes has led her to begin Assurance Home Service, which was created through conversations with area homeowners who are in need of someone to look after their homes while they are away.
Over the past 20 years, Kathleen has made site visits to thousands of homes. It is through these site visits that she has become very adept at observing not only the landscaping, but also the home itself. It is these observational skills that she will use in her Home Watch business.
Kathleen holds a Bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University. She was a horticulture teacher at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Science. Teaching and education continue to be very important to her. Kathleen writes a gardening column for the Sunday paper. She also hosts a radio show and volunteers her time through the music department and the athletic booster club of the local high school.
Vice-President Christopher J. Carr recently celebrated his 25th year in the construction industry. He has overseen the installation of a wide array of construction projects, both in public and private institutions. His work has allowed him to make improvements in schools and universities, churches, and corporate facilities. He is a member of the Sports Industry Network, the Association of Subcontractors and Affiliates of Chicago, and the Association for Operations Management.
Chris is thrilled to be opening Assurance Home Services. He brings his extensive construction and home maintenance knowledge to this company. This will allow him to continue to assist homeowners through his experienced and watchful eyes.
When not working, Kathleen and Chris enjoy spending time with their two daughters and one son, traveling to visit friends and family, baking together, and participating in sports. They have participated in several 5K races for charity. Chris has served as an elder and deacon in his church and coached his son’s baseball team.
