A recent survey of REALTORS® who have earned the Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation found that GRIs are among the most successful and enthusiastic practitioners in the business. Over 90 percent of GRI designees said they received value from the education and over half gave their GRI training the highest possible rating.
When asked to define how the GRI helped them, three benefits stood above all others, illustrated by respondents’ verbatim comments:
“After I received my GRI, I went on to become #10 in a company that has approximately 700 agents. I really owe my success to the training I received in the GRI courses.”
“GRI was by far the best educational series that I have ever attended in my 31 years in the business. The knowledge that I gained helped me exponentially.”
“GRI is a tremendous boost for any real estate professional. I came away with confidence that has helped me succeed and grow my business the right way.”
“I doubt I would have survived without the confidence GRI gave me.”
“A great deal of real estate sales is marketing. The GRI adds to my image of being a trained, competent, professional.”
“I tell my clients that this designation is very special. Only 5 percent of the agents in my market have completed this additional training. When clients hire me, they have an advantage over other agents and their clients due to my training.”
Earning the GRI designation is an intensive, in-person experience that gives you the information and tools to grow your real estate practice. Contact your state association to learn more and find courses offered in your area.
