Al Hill III and Erin Moving On Up and Away… to Atlanta?

Share News:

981 Davis Drive Buckhead

I have just learned that Al III and Erin have up and moved the fam to Atlanta. The most expensive home sold in Atlanta year to date, 981 Davis Drive, former home of Walter Reames, is now their family home, um, make that estate. Georgeous digs! At $9 million, it is the largest 2011 sale so far in Atlanta. The previous owners were Amanda and Walter Reames, an investor and partner in Atlanta Capital Management. Erin, a former Miss Georgia, is originally from Calhoun, Georgia.

According to Real Vinings/Buckhead:

More interesting to me is the purchaser.  My son had a new girl in his class at Westminster at the beginning of the year and she hadn’t been on the new student list that was published a couple of weeks before, so now in hindsight I think it was a last minute addition based on the closing of this property.  Turns out the new little girl now lives in this house!

At first I didn’t make the connection, but upon receiving an email a week or so ago it dawned on me who the family was: Erin Nance Hill and Al Hill III.

The best way for me to explain who purchased the house is for you to read a Vanity Fair article yourself.  The Hunt family in Texas is one of the wealthiest families in America and unfortunately they’ve had their share of family issues.Erin Nance Hill is from Calhoun, GA, and has family here and was 1993 Miss Georgia, so it’s not a surprise that she wants to raise her children here as well.  Atlanta is a great town for many reasons and we are thrilled to welcome The Hill Family to Atlanta and to Westminster!  Erin was a well-known socialite in Dallas and was single-handedly responsible for raising almost $1 million for charity during her time there.

Stay very tuned. I am heading out for a luncheon and interviews, back to this later.

    Wow. So what happened to their Dallas home? How could he buy a home when he's under criminal investigation? A $9 million dollar home!

      Candy, I didn't mean you. I meant Al Hill Jr. I'm just stupefied about his denial and defiance. Didn't his daddy help him buy their home in the Park Cities? Something's terribly wrong, and that's the nicest thing I can say about this.

    Looking back at my previous post it seems like I can't write. I guess I shouldn't have tried to post while watching the Cowboys-Redskins game at the same time lol.

    I'll keep an eye out for them for you Candy. 🙂

    I lived in Dallas for 20 years before moving to atlanta in 2009. Al 3 is one of the nicest and loyal people as well as his wife who worked tirelesly on charities in dallas. Its a shame that people always assume the worse if a family has money. I’m sure Al 3 moved here to get away from the rediculus drama and lies. I hope they are treated with open arms as Southerners do. Why speculate? Go to the source and ask before printing anything.

      F. Carpenter, these people are not nice. They are greedy family of scumbags that fight each other in court over control of billions of dollars that they did not earn. They are disrespectful and have absolutely no integrity. They work tirelessly on charities? They don't even work tirelessly with their own children.
