About Ed Riggins

Ed Riggins, CCIM, SIOR

Inspirational Commercial Real Estate Speaker & Trainer

Known simply as “Riggo“ to the thousands who have laughed and learned while attending in his programs, Ed Riggins has had a career that proves you can enjoy serious success without taking it all too seriously. He learned from stand-up to look for the truth in the funny and from improv to find the natural flow and go with it.

Riggo mowed lawns, customized cars, drove a forklift, and was a small engine mechanic on his way to becoming a first-generation college graduate.  From there he become a national top producer, was named “Who’s Who of Commercial Real Estate“ by the Atlanta Business Chronicle, and recognized as a “Power Broker“ by Costar.  He’s among less than 1% of practitioners nationally to have earned both the SIOR and CCIM designations.

I have had the opportunity to work with Ed several times over the years and he has proven to add significant value each time I have approached him about a real estate transaction. He is always very responsive when I need assistance and he consistently delivers great solutions. He is a great communicator and has the unique ability to get people at all levels within an organization to understand the pros and cons of options under consideration. I highly recommend Ed as a high integrity professional worthy of consulting on any commercial real estate transaction.
