About Us

Where It All Began

In 1992, Karen and Bob Tate founded Tate Enterprises for small remodel projects and handyman services. Based in Hinsdale, this family-owned business has since grown to include Jim Sullivan and their daughter Lisa. Their commitment to excellence has earned them awards, including NARI Remodeling Excellence. Jim has appeared on HGTV and House Smarts TV. With evolving industry and client needs, Jim and Lisa now lead the planning and execution phases to ensure your project’s success. In 2015, Lisa and Jim Sullivan took ownership, transforming the business into the design and remodel service it is today.


Jim is a United States Air Force veteran, having served as a B-52 crew chief for 4 years. His journey with Tate Enterprises began in 1996. Starting with smaller tasks, he quickly transitioned into managing large additions and remodel projects. Since taking over the business with his wife Lisa in 2015, Jim’s daily responsibilities include overseeing home renovations, managing subcontractors, and maintaining open communication with clients. Passionate about his work and delivering exceptional home renovations, Jim strives to expertly manage every project with precision, timeliness, and thoughtful decisions that result in enduring quality and timeless design.


Lisa joined Tate Enterprises in 1998, initially working behind the scenes in the office. In 2011, she embarked on a journey into design, mastering everything from paint colors and fixtures to appliances and cabinetry. In an ever-evolving industry with ever-changing trends, Lisa is committed to ongoing education, enabling her to craft personalized designs for every room in your home. She collaborates with you to create a custom style that harmonizes seamlessly with your lifestyle, ensuring your home is both functional and uniquely tailored to your taste.
