It’s a known fact the GRI designation gives agents a competitive edge in the world of real estate. I value the designation because I can better assist my clients at every step, on every level, and on any topic of concern to them. It has definitely moved my professional knowledge up a notch.
Realtors® with the GRI designation take a minimum of 10 classes that provide in-depth training in ethics, legal and regulatory issues, technology, professional standards, negotiations, and the sales process. These are the 10 classes offered in Virginia:
Ethics and Professional Responsibility
Working with Buyers
Working with Sellers
Agency in Virginia
The Business of Real Estate
The Sales Contract
Real Estate Law and Virginia Regulations
Understanding the Anatomy of a House
Only a small percentage of real estate agents have the GRI designation. Does yours?
