Earning the Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation is a way to stand out to prospective home buyers and sellers as a REALTOR® who has gained in-depth market knowledge, increased proficiency in a broad array of subjects to enhance professionalism and business success.

For details on the classes in October at GNAR:  https://marealtorportal.ramcoams.net/Education/Registration/Details.aspx?cid=ee4a6e1b-322d-4088-abe2-9f485d3af1fa
