ERA Martin Associates Realtor Achieves National Recognition


Patricia Bounds, REALTOR® with ERA Martin Associates in Salisbury, Maryland, has been awarded the Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designation by the REALTORS® Institute of Maryland. Patricia joins other top producers in the residential real estate industry who hold the GRI Designation across the country. She received this honor after successfully completing a rigorous 90-hour course covering specific education outlined by the National Association of Realtors. With this designation and through increased awareness of current topics important to the real estate professional, such as legal issues, GRI recipients can better serve prospective clients and customers.


              Buying and selling property has become increasingly complex, and a keen understanding of real estate transactions is more important now than ever. New technology, laws, and procedures require Realtors to understand these changes.  The GRI is a nationally recognized designation that indicates an increased level of skill and professionalism. With only 14% of all Realtors earning this recognition, it shows a commitment beyond just licensing to increased knowledge and the ability to assist customers and clients. 


              Patricia has been a Realtor with ERA Martin Associates since 2020. She is a multi-million dollar producing agent working with buyers and sellers in Maryland, with a specialty in Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset counties.  Patricia is bi-lingual and enjoys working with clients who speak both English and Spanish.
