About Us

Sam Neill Insurance was established in 1991. For our first 10 years, we operated as a captive agency representing one insurance company. In 2001, we realized we could better serve our clients as an independent agent and added Erie, Progressive and Travelers.

Our agency specializes in auto, home, business and life insurance. Sam Neill Insurance has three agents on staff; Sam Neill, Bonnie Jamison Burchfield, and Christina Webb with Carol Ross as customer service representative.

An Independent Advantage

Being an independent agency means we do not have an allegiance to one company. We work for our policyholders to find the best coverage and rate. Our clients do not have to check with ten different companies to shop their insurance. We do this for them every year.

While price is an important consideration, service is of equal or greater concern when choosing an agency and company. We have elected to represent highly rated insurance carriers with whom we have received excellent customer and claims service. Excellent service is our top priority because we want to win your business year after year.

When you buy insurance, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you need an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace. It’s up to you to make the final choice. We want to be your agency of choice.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?

When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!

The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, car insurance, home insurance or business owner policy — you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.

With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.

An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.

When you buy insurance, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you need an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace. It’s up to you to make the final choice. We want to be your agency of choice.
