Robert Edwards, Licensed Insurance Agent
I was born and raised right here in Hillsboro and am proud to be a native Oregonian. My family helped build up the Rockcreek area, so Washington County is where my roots are. I graduated from Hillsboro High School and attended PCC. For me, there’s nowhere better to be than this beautiful part of Oregon.
I got into the insurance industry because I truly enjoy helping people and I know the the value of insurance when one of my clients has a loss. Insurance is about more than money, it’s about peace of mind and relief from the burdens of dealing with a loss. The right coverage can make all the difference for you and your family, and I love being able to help my customers protect their families, homes, property and businesses.
My professional background was in engineering and I initially got into insurance part time. Once I saw the real impact quality insurance had on my customers lives, I decided to make it my career. I love the challenge of owning my own business and being an entrepreneur. I also love networking with other business owners and am a member of the Sunset West Chapter of BNI (Business Networking International), the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce and several other professional associations.
My wife Darcey is also a successful entrepreneur. She is the founder, owner and Principal Broker of Edwards Realty Trust here in Hillsboro. We share an office at the Venture Commerce Center in Tanasbourne. We have a home in Banks and have three wonderful children, two daughters and a son. When I’m not working I love being outdoors, especially with my family. Hunting and fishing are two of my favorite hobbies and you’ll find me on my Harley whenever I get the chance.
