Ed Babtkis, president of Ross Diversified Insurance Services, graduated with a degree in finance from USC in 1980. Prior to beginning his career as an insurance professional, Ed was a finance manager for a national Thrift and Loan. In 1984 Ed took a position at an insurance agency and in 1986 Ed bought the agency from the principals, hence Ross Diversified was born, (Ross is Ed’s middle name).
In the past thirty plus years, while the agency became national and focused on real estate insurance related products, Ed and his wife raised three beautiful daughters who constantly reminded Ed to “leave the toilet seat down”! Today Ed is a proud grandfather of two and is routinely on planes visiting family in Denver and Michigan.
To keep perspective, Ed enjoys worldwide travel, a round of golf and competitively races in Dragon Boat competitions. Visiting historical sites, understanding different cultures over a beverage while listening to many perspectives on various subjects expands peripheral that Ed finds stimulating and invaluable. In regard to some of the historical sites, many times Ed finds himself saying, “Ancient, but not primitive”.
The passion of real estate investing and insurance keeps Ed focused as he himself has bought and sold income property, actively invests in performing and non performing trust deeds, occasional flips and participates in loan originations. This investment background uniquely qualifies Ed in his capacity to educate investors on the intricacies of insurance while being sensitive to cash flow and rate of return.
HOSTS: Mathew Owens of OCG Properties and NEW CO-HOST RAYMOND TSAI of Team RT, Keller Williams
