Ferguson, Diehl earn GRI designation


— Rebecca Ferguson and Michelle Diehl of Century 21 Ski Town Associates in Steamboat Springs recently earned their Graduate Realtor Institute designation.

To earn the designation, Ferguson attended a specific, intensive series of at least 90 hours of classroom instruction, which covered subjects including contract law, professional standards, sales, marketing, finance and risk reduction. The designation is intended to educate brokers about local, state and national real estate practices that affect them, their clients and customers.

The designation is seen as a way to advance a Realtor's professional image, and those who earn it are members of the National Association of Realtors.
