This Month's Program

The Impact of Divorce on
Residential and Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Presented By:

Bart Henbest

Henbest Law
Phone: (815) 226-3411

Bart Henbest is a Rockford native who has always maintained close ties to his hometown. His roots in area small businesses go back to his father’s own local Rockford finance company. Bart graduated from Guilford High School in 1979, got his undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1983, and finished his education at John Marshall Law School in Chicago when he received his Juris Doctorate in 1987.

Bart returned to Rockford to begin practicing in 1987, and his first job was as a prosecutor for the City of Rockford. In 1990 Bart began his own private practice, Henbest Law Office. Since starting Henbest Law, Bart has taken a wide variety of cases in diverse areas of personal and business law. Henbest Law Office has represented and helped to establish over 100 area small businesses. Bart has also handled over 1,000 real estate transactions.

Bart isn’t just involved in real estate and small businesses as an attorney; he is also a real estate and small business investor.  Bart has also given his time and services pro-bono for the Paw’s Humane Society, helping them establish the first ever real estate tax waiver law for any humane society in the state of Illinois.

In his spare time, Bart is an avid golfer and loves to travel. Bart’s interest in international travel led him to help organize Rockford College’s Comparative Cultures course, which was held at Regent’s College in London from 1996 to 2002. Outside of work, Bart’s achievements include winning the city 8-ball tournament in 1995, and getting two hole-in-ones in 2012.

Bart is married to Tracy Henbest, and they have a son and a daughter who both attend Rockford Christian School.

Erna E Colborn
(815) 315-1808

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it is central to our working relationship to deeply invest my time in understanding what your financial goals are before you invest your money. Those goals may be personal or, as an entrepreneur, for your business.

My husband, Clark, and I are Rockford natives and we continue to make Rockford home for our family.

I attained a bachelor's degree from Bradley University and my MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management. I have been investing personally since high school when my economics teacher spent a portion of a semester on stocks and bonds. Imagine my parents' surprise when I came home and said I needed their help to open an investment account with my summer job money!

As a Chartered Retirement Plan Specialist (CRPS®) and having career experience administering employee benefit plans from inside companies, I can assist business owners and nonprofits in establishing a retirement program that attracts and retains quality employees.

As an Accredited Asset Management Specialist™ (AAMS®)*, I work hard to ensure my clients are invested properly for their personal goals and needs.

I am deeply committed to our community. I am a member of the Rockford Rotary Club. I serve on the boards of directors for Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful and the American Association of University Women. I am also a member of the League of Women Voters.

At Edward Jones, I provide highly personalized service. Relationships are key, and in my view, meeting face-to-face or virtually at my client's request builds strong relationships. I meet when it’s convenient for my clients because I recognize the challenging needs of their work and personal lives.
