“The knowledge I gained through the GRI Program has been irreplaceable. I took my classes in one year and doubled my income the following year. As a broker/owner, I feel that GRI is the BEST real estate educational offering. I wish NAR would require it for all REALTORS® .”

- Michelle Walker, STL Buy & Sell, St. Peters

“Earning my GRI provided me with the confidence and knowledge base I needed to step up and run with the best of them. This has since resulted in receiving team production awards, personal honors and plenty of recognition for my contributions – which could all be considered benefits of GRI and have made this journey very rewarding and humbling. However, I believe the most important benefit of GRI is the improved level of service I can offer my clients and customers, the public and my fellow REALTORS®.”

- Michael Jacques, The Jacques Company, Springfield 
Portrait of Brenda Oliver
“I still maintain relationships with some of the REALTORS® that I met in my first GRI class 30 years ago. This attests to friendships being forged more strongly with folks of like values. I often hear real estate practitioners complain that nobody knows what GRI stands for, but in my opinion, people know that letters after your name say you take your work seriously enough to pursue advanced degrees.”

- Brenda Oliver, Heritage Realty, Odessa
