What is the GRI Designation?
The Graduate, REALTOR Institute (GRI) symbol is the mark of a real estate professional who has made the commitment to provide a high level of professional services by securing a strong educational foundation. In today’s competitive business environment, it often takes more than just motivation and initiative to succeed. Earning the GRI designation is a way to stand out to prospective home buyers and sellers as a REALTOR who has gained in-depth knowledge on technical subjects as well as the fundamentals of real estate.

“When I attended my first GRI course, I had been a successful agent for eight years. I learned so much to ‘sharpen my saw’ as Stephen Covey says. And I met so many other agents with whom I have maintained long-term relationships and traded many referrals. It is a game changer and a deal maker experience” –Sharon Keating, ABR, CRS, GRI, SRES
