Meet the Agency
In 1997, Renea Rowland planted her vision of an insurance agency with a “hometown” feel against the quaint backdrop of Belton, SC. She wanted to offer affordable quotes and build relationships with customers that focused on individual and specific needs. This included a vision that still remains true for the agency today. This approach was so successful that in 2003 Renea opened a second location in Clinton, SC and later opened another location in Anderson, SC. Currently, the agency has grown to nine employees eager to serve your insurance needs on a genuine, personal level. Contact us today for a free personalized insurance quote at any of our three locations: Anderson, Belton, or Clinton.
HELLO!! My name is Kathy Borders. I’m a long time resident of South Carolina and excited to be a part of the Anderson team. I’ve been with the Renea S Rowland Agency since December of 2013. I’m a Licensed Personal Lines Agent. I was employed with the Montessori School of Anderson for over 25 years. As an ordained minister, I spend many weekends traveling to minister at various churches and conferences. In my spare time, I enjoy performing with my musical son Langdon, singing, preaching, and counseling teen girls and single mothers. I’m an avid sports fan, (UGA ALL DAY) and love to make people laugh.
Hello! My name is Alex Gambrell. I work in the Anderson office as a customer service representative, but I also work as the agency’s marketing coordinator as well. I enjoy servicing our clients and building relationships that flourish the growth of the agency. When I am not working, I am usually spending time with my boyfriend, family, and friends, or taking spontaneous trips out of town. You can usually find me with my phone taking pictures because I value documenting all of life’s precious moments. I look forward to meeting and servicing all of your insurance needs!
Hello! My name is Donna Blackwell, and I am a Multi Line Associate Agent. I started my insurance career in 2020 with the agency. Prior to working at the agency, I worked in the Harley-Davidson world for 14 years, so I KNOW motorcycles. Yes, I do ride my own! I am happily married with 2 sons. The oldest is in the US Navy stationed in San Diego, CA, and the youngest works for Timms Harley-Davidson (the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!). Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and love living life on our beautiful Lake Hartwell.
Hello, I am Stephanie Hunter, Associate Agent & Office Manager in Belton. I have been with the Rowland Insurance agency for over 20 years! During this time, I have had the honor to be named the Producer of the Year in Life Insurance 7 times. When you believe in something so strongly, it’s easy to help others with it. My main goal, for myself and the agency, is for each person that walks through the door to feel and be treated like family! Small Town Agency with a Big Heart!!
I have been married to my husband, John, a USMC Veteran, for 27 years. We have been blessed with two amazing children, Chip and Rebecca. They have both grown up in our amazing Belton Community and are now giving back. Chip is in college majoring in Secondary Education at Liberty University while being a substitute teacher and the Asst. Football Coach for Belton Middle School. Rebecca is an after school teacher at a local Educational and Development Center. To say I am proud of both of them is an understatement.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, shopping, along with being a Mary Kay and Pampered Chef Consultant.
I look forward to helping with all of your insurance needs! Call me for a quote on your auto, home, mobile home, rental properties, tenant, RV, Boat, Golf Cart, Motorcycle, Commercial, and/or Life today! Become part of our Small Town Agency Family.
