'What the heck is FRI?', you ask.
'The Fellow of the Real Estate Institute designation elevates your status to a real estate practitioner who has acquired advanced skills and knowledge, and met nationally-recognized business and ethical standards. The FRI designation is acknowledged by the real estate community as a standard of excellence and accomplishment. The thorough FRI curriculum enhances your knowledge and skills in legal and regulatory issues, advanced negotiation techniques, and professional ethics with real world applications.'
In a nutshell, it makes you a better Realtor.
Even on Fridays.
