REALTORS® who learn more, earn more!

Welcome to the professional development, events, and networking opportunities calendar of Pinellas REALTOR® Organization and Central Pasco REALTOR® Organization. We offer hundreds of classes every year from our award-winning program.

Graduate Realtor® Institute 100 Series GRI 101

Wednesday, February 8, 2023 8:00 AM - Thursday, February 9, 2023 5:30 PM (EST)

Description

101 Professionalism and the Law: Professional Standards; Fair Housing & Diversity; and Law

In GRI 101, Realtors® will learn just what sets them apart from real estate licensees. Professional Standards will guide you through the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics, and the expectations and requirements of the Florida Real Estate Commission (FREC). The Law portion will expand on the real estate law learned in the basic sales associate’s course to help participants identify and understand legal issues that arise. Learning how to take a proactive role in preventing fair housing violations will reduce a licensee’s exposure to liability... and that’s what Fair Housing and Diversity will provide. Awareness of federal fair housing laws and sensitivity to consumer diversity is vital to business success, reputation and growth.

GRI 100 Modules are a part of the required courses you have to take to receive your Graduate Realtor® Institute Designation. Click here to find out more about GRI and any additional requirements to earn this prestigious designation. NOTE: GRI 100, 200, and 300 can be taken in any order.
