About Us

Hello, I’m Brian.  I’ve lived in Lawrence for eighteen years.  I earned my bachelor’s degree from KU in 2001 and have provided insurance services for over 10 years. I spent the first few years sharpening my insurance skills as a Medicare support worker and working as an agent.  I started Edie Insurance Group in January 2010; aspiring to create a friendly atmosphere where people can get the insurance coverage they need with a person they can trust. My approach to writing insurance is deliberate, attentive, and thorough. I will utilize my experience and education, as well as my relationships with over 30 carriers, to provide you with protection you can count on.


Hi, I'm Colin Elwell.  I'm a licensed agent who can help you with all your insurance needs, whether it be home, auto, life or business.  I joined Edie Insurance Group in 2016 and have 5 years of previous experience working as a local agent.  I love being able to call Lawrence home and raise a family here.  When it comes to insurance, it is important for me to take the time to get to know you and make sure you have the coverage you need.  Give me a call today to learn how I can make it easy to protect the things that are most important to you.  


Hello, I'm Brad Scraper.  I have lived in Douglas County since 1999 and in Baldwin City since 2002.  I am a graduate of Hiawatha High School and earned my bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Emporia State University in 1999.  I have been in some form of auto or real-estate services since graduating from ESU, working at Enterprise right out of college and then in the lending and insurance industries.  Prior to becoming an insurance agent in 2012, I spent eight years in mortgage lending with Commerce Bank and First National Mortgage Sources in Lawrence.  I value relationships and look forward to showing you our integrity, energy, and hard work here at Edie Insurance Group.  Call me today and let's get to know each other.
