No, they can only act as 'secretaries' - make appointments and take messages.  Having licensed assistants makes a world of difference - worth every penny!

They cannot discuss real estate matters... they can make appointments, they can take messages. In new construction offices they can hand out information, but not discuss it.

In our State of California, Kathleen, real estate activity can only be conducted by a licensee. The nature of discussions resulting from calls to potential buyers and sellers fall into the category, in my opinion.

I've argued at length with someone who says it's legal in Georgia.  However, when I called the commission that said even if they are calling someone who "inquired" on line it's still considered cold calling and NOT legal in Georgia.

if you scroll far enough down the page there is a list of what unlicensed support personnel can and cannot do.

Only to make appointments (e.g. for showings)or follow up on loan commitments, etc. Not for anything that might lead to answering real estate questions or negotiations. Those calls need to be transferred to a licenced agent.

No, because it might ultimately take on the discussion of real estate. Some people are going to say yes, watch. 

If they do appointment times only --- which is a big if, then it's ok.
