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.

For details on the classes in October at GNAR:

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:

-New technology
-Marketing yourself/business
-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.
