Why use a Real Estate agent with a GRI

According to membership profiles of the National Association of REALTORS®, only 19% of agents have a GRI designation!

GRI which stands for Graduate REALTOR® Institute is a nationally recognized professional real estate designation.

The GRI designation is a real estate industry designation similar to various industry designations such as:

  • CPA - Certified Public Accountant, an accounting industry designation
  • CSEO - Certified Senior Escrow Officer, an escrow industry designation
  • CLU - Charter Life Underwriter, an insurance industry designation
  • CFP - Certified Financial Planner, a financial industry designation

The GRI designation is considered the nation's number one real estate designation.

This designation may only be earned after successfully completing a rigorous educational program. This program requires 92 hours of live course instruction from a statewide faculty selected because of extensive experience in their own areas of expertise.

This designation is available only to members of the local, state, and National Association of REALTORS®.

GRI is recognized nationwide as the standard for real estate professionalism and knowledge.
