A veteran political strategist, Brazile is an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, author of “Cooking With Grease: Stirring the Pot in American Politics,” as well as a syndicated columnist, television political commentator, former Vice Chair for Civic Engagement and Voter Participation at the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and former chair of the DNC’s Voting Rights Institute.

Brazile’s talk is included in admission, still only $19 for the fabulous lineup that includes motivational speaker Terry Watson, host Geoff McIntosh, a legal panel with some of the top legal minds in California real estate, C.A.R.’s Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young, FBI cybercrimes expert Michael Sohn in an interview with CRMLS CEO Art Carter, along with dozens of exhibitors, valuable networking opportunities, and an atmosphere that is energetic and fun!
REvive began with Citrus Valley Association of REALTORS® as the sole presenter. Now in its 5th year with 11 associations participating, REvive has grown into a phenomenal event where real estate industry professionals can hear from nationally-recognized speakers about the latest laws, issues and trends in real estate, network and gain knowledge that can help them be successful in their business.
“We are so excited to have such an amazing lineup for what will be a remarkable conference this year,” said Epstein, who’s lead the REvive organizing team since its inception.

FBI Expert on Cybercrime in Real Estate Coming to REvive!
We are pleased to welcome FBI Supervisory Special Agent Michael Sohn to Real Estate REvive Conference & Expo on March 30, 2017. Sohn currently leads a squad at the FBI Los Angeles Field Division responsible for investigating computer and high-technology crimes involving national security matters.
Wire fraud is a growing issue for real estate professionals. A hacker gets into the email account of someone involved in a transaction, gathers enough information to create an accurate-sounding email that defrauds a buyer by emailing instructions to send funds to a fraudulent account.
Sohn’s investigative experience includes cyber terrorism as well as state-sponsored and criminal cyber intrusion matters. Prior to the FBI, Sohn worked as a Cyber Counterintelligence Officer for the Department of the Army, a Counter Terrorism officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency, a consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton and a U.S. Army Officer.
Hear more from the expert at REvive 2017, and how in certain cases the FBI has been able to retrieve funds! See more about our lineup at the Speaker Spotlight.
