Earn the GRI Designation

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 REALTOR® who has gained in-depth knowledge on technical subjects as well as the fundamentals of real estate.

The REALTOR® Institute curriculum represents the minimum common body of knowledge for progressive real estate professional as defined by the Professional Development Committee of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®. NAR recommends that the REALTOR® Institute program be completed in no more than five (5) years of starting the program.

The GRI Policy Statement provides an overview of the guidelines to be followed by State Associations when offering the GRI program.
