“Our real estate continuing education requirement is only 45 hours every 4 years. I feel that an average of less than 12 hours of professional education per year is inadequate to keep up with current legislation, timely standards of practice, and the various facets of real estate that affect my clients every day,” said Dawna Davies, owner and broker of the Davies Company.
The GRI program is designed to enhance REALTORS® up to date industry knowledge and improve skills to help set them apart. As reported on edesignations.com, a survey conducted by the National Association of REALTORS® concluded that GRI graduates are the top performers in most real estate offices and earn at least 35% more than those who have not received their GRI credential.
With real estate transactions becoming increasingly complicated in today’s market, the GRI further prepares designees to put together offers and negotiate deals. Topics covered in the program include technology aspects of real estate, real estate property law, investment tax strategies, client representation, fair housing, disclosures, real estate finance, commercial property matters and environmental land issues.
“I appreciate ongoing learning. I pursued this credential program to receive the opportunity for an in-depth concentration into the specific topics that are part of the series. I believe the strategic transaction needs of today’s buyers and sellers of real estate are best served by a graduate of the GRI series,” said Davies.
Acclaimed members in real estate are selected throughout California to instruct GRI courses. The GRI is authorized by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTOR’S®
