Graduate, Realtor Institute


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

Risk Management

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?
