Erin Neill has a talent for assessing needs and developing creative solutions. It serves clients at Hanby Insurance well, yet the benefits of her positive spirit and can-do attitude extend beyond her customers to the Greater Rockwall community. Erin’s most recent endeavor, along with her husband, Jeremy Neill, a commercial relationship banker at American National Bank, was purchasing and renovating the 4,500-square-foot Rockwall Professional Building.

“We had been renting office space in the building for seven years. When COVID-19 hit, everyone was working from home and the office was virtually empty. This led me to consider consolidating our Mesquite and Rockwall offices into a single location. I wondered if the owners would sell the building to us and surprisingly, they were open to it,” says Erin, an independent insurance agent and the principal agent and owner of Hanby Insurance.

The Neills closed on the property located on Goliad Street across from the Rockwall County Historic Courthouse in January 2021. Remodeling began in March to update the building while keeping its “bones” intact.

“We installed a state-of-the-art communications system, upgraded to LED lighting, replaced the flooring, painted, and put TVs in every office,” Erin says. “The woodwork is beautiful, and we wanted to respect the previous owners who built the building in 1984. So, we changed the honey oak color with a walnut stain, and it looks fantastic. The previous owner recently stopped by and loved our vision for the building and the outcome.” She adds, “Alex Rubio’s company A&A Construction & Remodeling here in Rockwall did the work for us. We couldn’t be happier with the results.”

Today, the multitenant commercial complex is completely updated, and Erin has moved her Mesquite office to Rockwall as planned. With Hanby Insurance and the other tenants in the building, it’s at full capacity.

Rockwall-Based, Rockwall Proud

Erin feels deeply connected to Rockwall and enjoys being part of the fabric of the community. Her third great grandfather, Franklin Sullivan, settled in Rockwall in 1853 and became one of the city’s first Postmasters in 1859, back when Rockwall was still part of Kaufman County. In 2018, Erin was certified as a Rockwall County Pioneer by the Rockwall Genealogical Society and received its Pioneer Certificate. “Being able to invest in Rockwall is a huge blessing for me and my family,” she shares.

Erin and Jeremy Neill live in Rockwall with their two young daughters, Charlotte (Charlee) and Georgia, carrying on the tradition of being Rockwall-based and Rockwall proud. Firm believers in giving back and paying it forward, they are active in the Rockwall Chamber of Commerce, where Jeremy serves on the board of directors. Jeremy is also on the board of directors for Helping Hands, and Erin serves on the board for Meals on Wheels Senior Services of Rockwall County and Soroptimist. The couple further supports the community by donating to various local, family, and education-oriented charities such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Children’s Advocacy Center for Rockwall County.
