Instructor Bio: Terry Watson

Terry goes by the nickname “The AHA Guy” because it’s his goal to give your audiences ideas they’ve never heard before… and that will drastically change the way they do business in the future.

As a CSP, Terry has been designated one of the world’s top speaking professionals. (Only 10% of the speakers who belong to the Global Speakers Federation hold this title – fewer than 600 worldwide.) His 20+ years of experience serving thousands of clients has made him a consummate professional in the world of wannabe speakers.

Terry’s style is bold, funny, and wildly entertaining – while still delivering real world lessons that resonate with your audience and solve real problems for his clients.

If your attendees aren’t often overheard in the halls saying, “I can’t believe I didn’t know that” or “I haven’t laughed this hard in years” or “I am so glad I was here”, Terry was not your speaker.

Instructor Bio

There isn’t a time when Rich Sands doesn’t remember leading a class full of students. For fifteen years he brought out the best in high school students. He took that leadership to the real estate industry where he rose to the position of Director of Education, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Colorado and revolutionized the company’s training services for more than 2,000 managers, agents and staff.

Now, an experienced international presenter, instructor, and keynote specialist, Rich specializes in helping people master their sales skills in any situation.

FAQs

Why do I need the GRI designation?

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been in the business a while or are just starting out. If you’re hungry for more success, it’s time to raise your real estate career to a higher level by earning the most comprehensive real estate designation: Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI).

Just ask current GRI designees. In a recent survey, they indicated these top three reasons for earning the GRI:

  1. Gain comprehensive knowledge — The coursework provides in-depth training on the most essential topics, including market knowledge, business skills, systems and tools, and risk management—substantially beyond what’s covered by licensing courses.
  2. Build confidence — Past graduates consistently say they love their GRI because it gave them confidence in their own skills and credibility with clients—essential components for building a successful real estate career.
  3. Impress consumers — With “Graduate, REALTOR® Institute” by their name, they stand out in their market as an agent who takes advanced real estate education seriously.

Not only do GRIs have a leg up on agents without the designation, the time required to earn your GRI goes a long way towards demonstrating your level of commitment to yourself, your clients, and the industry. It’s a true win-win-win proposition.

How is the GRI different?

Unlike most NAR designations, the GRI is managed independently by each state association of REALTORS®, with slightly different course requirements. This provides an optimal blend of state-specific content along with national perspectives. Also, GRI designees do not pay any annual dues to maintain their designation.

What are the added fees?

There are 2 types of convenience fees: 1. Eventbrite Service Fee & 2. Payment Processing fee of 3%.

How can I avoid the convenience fees?

Simply send a check payable for $250 to: Idaho REALTORS®. Address the envelope to Amanda Pannell at Idaho REALTORS® 10116 W. Overland Rd. Boise, ID 83709. Be sure to write “GRI 201” in the memo.

What are my parking options for the class?

Parking is available onsite at Western Magic Valley REALTORS®.

FAQs

Why do I need the GRI designation?

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been in the business a while or are just starting out. If you’re hungry for more success, it’s time to raise your real estate career to a higher level by earning the most comprehensive real estate designation: Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI).

Just ask current GRI designees. In a recent survey, they indicated these top three reasons for earning the GRI:

1. Gain comprehensive knowledge — The coursework provides in-depth training on the most essential topics, including market knowledge, business skills, systems and tools, and risk management—substantially beyond what’s covered by licensing courses.

2. Build confidence — Past graduates consistently say they love their GRI because it gave them confidence in their own skills and credibility with clients—essential components for building a successful real estate career.

3. Impress consumers — With “Graduate, REALTOR® Institute” by their name, they stand out in their market as an agent who takes advanced real estate education seriously.

Not only do GRIs have a leg up on agents without the designation, the time required to earn your GRI goes a long way towards demonstrating your level of commitment to yourself, your clients, and the industry. It’s a true win-win-win proposition.

How is the GRI different?

Unlike most NAR designations, the GRI is managed independently by each state association of REALTORS®, with slightly different course requirements. This provides an optimal blend of state-specific content along with national perspectives. Also, GRI designees do not pay any annual dues to maintain their designation.

What are the added fees?

There are 2 types of convenience fees: 1. Eventbrite Service Fee & 2. Payment Processing fee of 3%.

How can I avoid the convenience fees?

Simply send a check payable for $250 to: Idaho REALTORS®. Address the envelope to Amanda Pannell at Idaho REALTORS® 10116 W. Overland Rd. Boise, ID 83709. Be sure to write “GRI 202” in the memo.
