Leading brokers from around the nation will gather in San Diego this November to be the guests of honor at RISMedia’s 20th Annual Power Broker Reception & Dinner, being held on Friday, Nov. 13, at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel in San Diego, Calif., during the National Association of REALTORS® Conference & Expo.
RISMedia’s annual Power Broker Reception & Dinner is an exclusive, by-invitation-only event honoring the Top 500 brokers in RISMedia’s Annual Power Broker Report, published this past April. For attendance inquiries, please contact Randi Vannucchi at email@example.com.

Ben Stein Announced as Guest Speaker
Following the awards ceremony, guests will enjoy a special appearance and keynote address by Ben Stein, the famous actor, economist, lawyer, political commentator and author. Stein’s appearance is made possible through Platinum sponsor Xome.
Arguably the most famous economics teacher in America, Stein’s comedic role as the droning teacher in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” has been ranked as one of the fifty most famous scenes in movie history.
In real life, Stein is a powerful speaker on economics, politics, education, and history. His background includes being a poverty lawyer for the poor in New Haven, a trade regulation lawyer for the FTC, a speech writer for both Presidents Nixon and Ford, a columnist and an editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal, and a teacher of law and economics at UC Santa Cruz (undergrad) and Pepperdine (law school and undergrads).
He has written or co-written roughly 30 books with colleague Phil DeMuth, as well as a column on economics for The New York Times. Stein co-hosted the show, “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” with Jimmy Kimmel, which won seven Emmys, including best game show host. Presently, he writes a column for The American Spectator and for NewsMax, and is a regular commentator on Fox News and on CBS Sunday Morning, as well as a frequent commentator on CNN.
