Experienced Staff in Insurance & Real Estate

Our Beginning:

Richlands Insurance Agency was originally organized in 1950 by two brothers, A.B Ervin Sr. and W.C. Ervin. The original name was Ervin Brothers Insurance Agency, but was later changed to Richlands Insurance Agency when Mrs. Margaret B. Lockamy joined the firm. In June 1963, upon the death of A.B. Ervin Sr., his son Byron came aboard and helped build it to it's present status.

Originally, the business was built around the Fire and Casualty Insurance business. Realizing that its many customers needed Life Insurance as well, this coverage was added in 1965. To complete its desire to become a full service agency for the community, Real Estate was added in 1966, and the name was changed to Richlands Insurance and Realty, Inc.

At Richlands Insurance & Realty,

We believe in providing our customers with the best service possible, tailoring to all their individual needs, and being readily available to them when they need us.

All of our customers, regardless of their size, are important to us. We build our business on the personal relationships we have established with them and the great service which has characterized Richlands Insurance & Realty from the beginning. We have been blessed with the patronage of our friends and neighbors and we look forward to many years of helping them with Insurance & Realty needs in Richlands, North Carolina.
