Longtime industry leaders and forward-thinking visionaries will be honored during RISMedia’s 16th Annual Power Broker Dinner, taking place during the upcoming NAR Conference & Expo in Anaheim, California. This by-invitation-only networking event will be held at the Anaheim Marriott at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 11.
RISMedia’s annual Power Broker Reception & Dinner recognizes the industry’s leading brokers, as determined by the results of RISMedia’s annual Power Broker Report & Survey. Each year, the Power Broker event brings together real estate’s leading decision makers—from top brokers and executives to industry visionaries and icons—and offers sponsors a unique opportunity to network with the industry’s power players, all in one location.

The Power Broker Dinner also serves as the venue to honor key industry players for their individual contributions to the real estate industry.
The National Homeownership Award, sponsored by Bank of America, is bestowed upon a member of the real estate community who continuously demonstrates extraordinary contributions toward increasing homeownership and building better communities. Past National Homeownership Award winners include: Richard L. (Dick) Schlott, Chairman & CEO of Gloria Nilson REALTORS®, Real Living and RLS Real Living Realtors; Ron Peltier; Chairman & CEO, HomeServices of America; Dave Liniger, Founder & Chairman, RE/MAX International; J. Lennox Scott, Chairman & CEO, John L. Scott Real Estate; Gino Blefari and Robert Moles, Founders, Intero Real Estate Services; Alex Perriello, President & CEO, Realogy Franchise Group; and Hoddy Hanna, Chairman of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services.
The “On the Shoulders of Giants” award, sponsored by RE/MAX, was created to recognize those individuals whose efforts, works, deeds and character exemplify superior achievements in and for the real estate industry, yet whose efforts often go unnoticed. Past recipients of the “On the Shoulders of Giants” award include: Brian Buffini, Chairman & Founder of Buffini & Company; Howard Brinton, Founder of STARPower Systems; Nina Cottrell, CEO of the Council of Residential Specialists (CRS); and Craig Proctor, Founder of Craig Proctor Productions
The 2011 winners of the above awards will be announced during November’s Power Broker Dinner. RISMedia will also announce the winner of its newest award at this year’s event: the RISMedia Real Estate Leadership Award.
The Real Estate Leadership Award, sponsored by Citi, is designed to honor an industry visionary who embraces innovation and exercises resilience to blaze new paths to success for real estate professionals and consumers alike.
Earlier that day, RISMedia will host its 16th Annual Power Broker Forum—“The One Thing Power Brokers Can’t Live Without”—being held at the Anaheim Convention Center, Room 201A, on Friday, November 11, from 2-4:30 pm.
