New Office in Georgetown

Watkins Insurance Group, the largest full-service, locally-owned independent insurance agency in central Texas, has begun construction of a new location in historic downtown Georgetown, TX.

The new building, to be located at 815 South Main Street, will be a two-story development which will house Watkins Insurance Group as well as tenants. “Watkins Insurance Group is making a significant investment to downtown Georgetown,” says developer Scott Stribling. “The new building will generate a great amount of momentum for the area and that equates to growth and jobs.”
“We are incredibly excited about increasing our commitment to Georgetown and Williamson county,” says Andy Webb, Partner of Watkins Insurance Group and member of the Georgetown ISD Board of Trustees. “By building a beautiful landmark building on one of the last undeveloped lots in downtown, we hope to be an integral part of the economic future of Georgetown.”

The office is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2019.
