In today’s competitive business environment, it often takes more than just motivation and initiative to succeed. Earning the Graduate REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation is a way to stand out to prospective home buyers and sellers as a trusted resource who has in-depth knowledge on the fundamentals of real estate. GRI is the most recognized professional designation in the real estate industry.

The GRI Designation consists of 60 hours; 48 of which are from a combination of live and online courses. The curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of our members as well as educational standards established by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). Live classes are hosted by local associations throughout the state, while the online classes can be taken at any time.

As you can see, the program provides great tools and education to improve your business and sharpen your skills as a REALTOR®. Contact Savanna Tandski with any questions about GRI.
