Those who know me understand that I love education and recently I embarked on the journey over 5 months to earn my Graduate Realtor Institute designation. It's a designation program run by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®
From the class, not only did I meet some amazing agents who are in the industry that were in the classes with me, but I gleaned new ideas and concepts to help me when it's time to help you.
As an education provider myself, I firmly believe in the value of lifelong learning. You can NEVER say that you know everything there is to know even when you are an expert.
This was definitely a journey worth taking as I always work to learn new skills
