GRI (Graduate, REALTOR® Institute)
Have you been considering getting the GRI designation? The GRI program is underway and in October, GNAR will host one of the modules. To obtain your GRI, contact the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS or visit the new GRI website.
Who is it for?
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.

The GRI program covers many in its series of courses for those who are looking to become more successful, professional, and knowledgeable about the industry. The GRI program focuses on:
-Specific sales techniques
-Environmental issues, and more….
GRI courses are taught by real estate practitioners, who are seasoned instructors and experts in these fields. They provide students with first-hand, personal experiences while demonstrating the true results of success.
How the Graduate REALTOR® can increase your value:
GRI courses are designed to provide agents with the permanent skills needed for longevity. The consumer could see an agent in a different light– they will feel comfortable hiring YOU versus an untrained licensee. After taking the GRI courses, new and long term REALTORS® will be confident in themselves, and have a heightened knowledge of the competitive and changing real estate industry.
Extra perks the Graduate REALTOR® offers:
– The GRI courses are designed to meet the lifestyle and budget of today’s REALTOR®.
– One GRI course can offer 2-10 Continuing Education credits.
– GRI courses provide valuable networking opportunities. During these live courses students meet fellow agents and develop strong referral business.
