The FRI designation is acknowledged by the real estate community as a standard of excellence and accomplishment.

Of the over 1,800 licensed REALTORS® in Nova Scotia, just 41 of them are Fellows of the Real Estate Institute of Canada. The Fellow of the Real Estate Institute (FRI) is an esteemed national designation that is awarded to real estate sales practitioners who have met rigorous education, experience and membership requirements, and have agreed to adhere to the Real Estate Institute of Canada’s Code of Professional Standards. 
 
I am one of these 41 FRIs.
 
Value of an FRI 
The FRI designation is the public's assurance that they are dealing with an individual who has made a career commitment to real estate. FRIs are professionals with additional expertise (above the standard licensing requirements) in market analysis, property sales, leasing and marketing, and have additional knowledge of real estate law, financing, valuation and property analysis.
