Co-Founder
  • Robert started in the insurance business when he was in middle school, working in his dad’s insurance agency. He fell in love with the business and opened his own insurance agency at the age of 19 while attending college. He found immediate success through a focus on better communication with his clients and won the “Rookie of the Year” award for Allstate Insurance after his first full year. Finance, entrpreneurship and business quickly became Robert’s real passions so he formed Edgin Insurance & Financial in 2000, in order to add financial services to his practice.
  • Since making that change 20+ years ago, Robert has won countless awards, including agency of the year for the state of Colorado 17 times. Robert has a vast knowledge of business ownership, finance, real estate  and insurance.
  • Robert earned and maintains his Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designation and the Life and Annuity Certified Planner (LACP) designation.

Brian Johnson
Co-Founder
  • Brian started in the insurance and financial services business in July 2001.  After high school Brian attended Kellogg Community College where he received an associates degree in criminal justice and then went on to Michigan State University where he received a bachelor of arts degree with a major in criminal justice.  This was also the time in which Brian discovered his interest in economics which he took several courses as electives which pushed him to receive the degree by a semester since the economic credits did not satisfy the criminal justice degree requirements.  Fast forward to 2001 after many late nights of researching how to become a financial advisor, Brian began his financial and insurance career.
  • Brian moved to Colorado 2 days after graduating from Michigan State University in 1995
