Ed Scislow Jr.: Allstate Insurance

Local Allstate Agent: Meet Ed Scislow Jr.

I was born at Swedish Hospital in Minneapolis and remember accompanying my dad to his sales office in the Warehouse District downtown while growing up. I got my start in insurance as a claims adjuster based out of Arden Hills in 1986 and became an Allstate agent in 1987. I opened our Minneapolis office in 2009. I chose to open my third agency in Minneapolis because it’s a large, diverse area with a tremendous amount of opportunity and a lot of hometown pride.

I became an Allstate representative because I have a passion for helping customers find the coverage they need to protect what matters most. Having come from insurance claims, I knew I wanted to have a hand in helping people prepare for the unexpected, and not just after the fact. Today, our agencies are staffed with a team of agents who each bring unique skill sets to the table, such as being fluent in Spanish and English.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Linda, our three daughters, Rachael, Amy and Sarah, and our three dogs, Maggie, Royce and Riley. You could say we have a full house! We're avid sports fans and enjoy attending Minnesota Vikings football games and Minnesota Twins baseball games. I graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and enjoy taking a stroll through the downtown campus, which is close to my Minneapolis office. In my spare time, I'm an avid soccer player and play on two different teams year-round. I enjoy photography and traveling and hope to visit new, exciting places in the future!

We're familiar with more than auto and home insurance. Whether you're looking to protect your brand-new condo or are in the market for a new home or auto policy, we can assist you. Stop by to say hello and see how we can help you protect what matters most. Our office is located about three blocks west of Lake Nokomis on Bloomington Avenue.

Minnesota had 184,210 of those bikes, and everywhere you go across the state you’ll see riders just like you, enjoying the freedom of the open road.

Volunteered with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity

I believe in making a difference in my community, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity of volunteering with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity.

I look forward to working with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity again in the future.
