"Earning the GRI has given me the know-how needed to succeed in this fast-changing real estate market and has equipped me to serve my seller/buyer clients at the highest level of excellence."





David Boyle

“During the classes, we had real-life discussions about certain topics and out in the field, I have encountered some of those same scenarios. Now, with the knowledge and confidence learned at GRI, I am able to tackle these issues correctly and appropriately. I would recommend taking the GRI courses to anyone either just entering the industry or if you have been doing real estate for a long time.”
