SEATTLE – Ben Stein, the famous actor, economist, lawyer and author, announced that he will be the keynote speaker at the 6th Annual Luxury Real Estate Spring Retreat, which will be hosted in San Diego from Tuesday, April 15 to Friday, April 18, 2008.

Mr. Stein indicated that he plans to speak, in large part, about the psychology of buying luxury properties. His participation in the conference is sponsored by Harry Tishler, Senior Vice President of BVG Incorporated in Tampa, Fla.

“Mr. Stein’s opinions have been expressed in a wide variety of media, such as The American Spectator, The New York Times, Barron’s, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, E! Online, and on CBS Sunday Morning News, to name a few,” said Mr. Tishler, who has been with BVG Incorporated since January 2006. “The members of will enjoy his presentation and take from it an entertaining and informative viewpoint and one that will lend perspective on all aspects of our businesses. To be part of his live audience will be a very memorable experience for us all.”

Famous for his role as the boring economics teacher in the 1986 film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” Mr. Stein is actually much more than an actor. Early in his career, he was an accomplished lawyer, specializing in trade regulation and poverty. He also served as a speechwriter for Presidents Nixon and Ford in 1973 and 1974. In addition, he has published more than a dozen books on a variety of topics from economics and politics to Hollywood.

“I got to know Ben during the time of his purchase of a residence at Seasons at Sandpoint last year,” Mr. Tishler said. “Some wrongly assume that a person who is considered by many to be a nationally recognized expert on legal and economic matters would be difficult to manage or hard to satisfy during the selling process. To the contrary, Mr. Stein was pleasant, honorable, and fun to work with. I have found him to be a genuine and thoughtful person in all of our dealings.”

Mr. Tishler has a great deal of experience in the sales and marketing corporate divisions of retail and manufacturing companies. In his current position as Senior Vice President of BVG Incorporated, he is a member of the company’s Executive Board and is responsible for all of the company’s sales and marketing operations. He is currently representing Seasons at Sandpoint (, a condominium resort located in downtown Sandpoint, Idaho.
