Curious about becoming a Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI)?
In today’s competitive business environment, it often takes more than just motivation and initiative to succeed. Earning the Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) professional 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 Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) symbol is the mark of a real estate professional who has made the commitment to provide a high level of professional services by securing a strong educational foundation.
Many aspects of the GRI contribute to the success of its students. You learn from industry experts from around the country, you grow your referral network with like-minded professionals, and you gain the latest tools and practices. REALTORS® with a professional designation earn a median income of 74% more than those without, according to a recent NAR member survey.
- Have pursued a course of study that represents the minimum common body of knowledge for progressive real estate professionals.
- Have developed a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to navigate the current real estate climate—no matter what its condition.
- Are recognized nationally.
- Act with professionalism and are committed to serving their clients and customers with the highest ethical standards.

How It Works
The GRI program consists of 6 seperate modules covering a variety of topics to strengthen your knowledge and professionalism in the real estate industry. Each module is 2 days of courses with tests over the course material that is covered. We also work with the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission to ensure that each of the courses you take will also count towards continuing education credit in a variety of topics.
From the time you take your first module, you have 5 years to complete the other 5 modules to earn your GRI professional designation. For more information about the GRI professional designation, visit NAR’s dedicated page.

Consider the following reasons why now is the time to earn your GRI designation:
Two for the price of one! GRI classes also count as continuing education credit, so you double the impact of every dollar and minute you spend. Some courses even count toward other NAR designations, too! Click here for more information.
No annual fees! While many professional REALTOR® designations require annual dues, the GRI does not.
Stand out from the crowd! Show consumers your expertise. Prospective clients are looking for anything that will show you are a better choice than the next person selling real estate.
Have a great time! GRI is great fun, and students appreciate the strong bonds they form with other REALTORS®, saying that it “feels like family.” They enjoy the very tangible benefit of an invaluable statewide referral network.
