Teacher Bio

Ed Riggins, SIOR, CCIM | Cresa Atlanta

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 doing stand-up comedy that if you want to find the truth, look for the funny. He learned from improv comedy to find the natural flow and go with it. Before becoming a national top producer, being named “Who’s Who of Commercial Real Estate“ by the Atlanta Business Chronicle and recognized as a “Power Broker“ by Costar, Riggo mowed lawns, customized cars, drove a forklift, and was a small engine mechanic, on his way to becoming a first- generation college graduate. Ed is among less than 1% of practitioners nationally to have earned both the SIOR and CCIM designations. More info »
