What is the GRI Designation?


The Graduate, REALTOR Institute (GRI) designation is a powerful tool to attract and build new business. You'll increase your skill level across the entire landscape of real estate with in-depth training in legal and regulatory issues, technology, professional standards, and the sales process.

The GRI designation is a nationally recognized program proven to help Realtors make a difference in their business and potentially boost their income.   

The GRI designation requires 60 hours of approved education courses offered by the Iowa Association of REALTORS. 

What is the Fast Track All About? 

The Fast Track is a series of courses that allows Realtors to earn their GRI designation while getting a head start on the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) Designation with several CRS courses counting toward both the GRI and CRS designations. 


When you earn your CRS Designation, you gain the credentials and advanced professional knowledge that commands the trust and attention of your clients and peers. Learn more about the benefits of earning the CRS Designation from the Residential Real Estate Council.
