About Us

History of our Agency

Over the years, we have found that a team approach is the best way to help our clients as they navigate the complex world of insurance.

We invite you to experience the benefits of a diverse team with differing educational interests, experiences, and strategies.

Our Primary Purpose

Carey Insurance Group of Dagsboro, Delaware was founded by James E. Carey, Jr. (Jim) on October 1, 1973. Jim’s business quickly grew to one of the most successful Nationwide Insurance Agencies on the Delmarva Peninsula.

In 1992, Jim’s son Scott graduated from the Perdue School of Business at Salisbury University and he joined the agency soon after.

Carey Insurance Group continued its rapid growth and was honored in 1999 as the #1 Nationwide Insurance Agency in the country.

On December 1, 2011, Scott purchased his father’s insurance agency and continued the family legacy by providing superior service.

In 2012, Carey Insurance Group was the #1 Nationwide Insurance Agency in Delaware and was nationally ranked in the top 50 Nationwide Agencies in the country.

On February 1, 2013, Carey Insurance Group merged with the Robert Hulburd agency located in Berlin, MD.

On July 1, 2017, Carey Insurance Group merged with the Richard Small agency located in Laurel, DE.

On January 1, 2018, Carey Insurance Group continued to expand by merging with the Melody Nelson Insurance Agency located in Princess Anne, Maryland.

On July 1, 2019, Carey Insurance Group became an Independent Agency and acquired Harrington Insurance Agency with 3 locations, Seaford, Dover & Rehoboth Beach. After this acquisition, Carey Insurance group opened two additional offices in Dover & Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

By merging with other agencies, Carey Insurance Group is better able to serve the communities of Kent, Sussex, Worcester, Wicomico, and Somerset Counties. Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to doing business with you.

Knowledge is power.

It is also the foundation for intelligent, well-considered decisions. When you have questions about which insurance policies are right for you, sound decisions are vital in helping you pursue your goals and protect your future. For many, understanding every aspect of the insurance space can be daunting.
