"What people need to realize is that when you get your license that they teach you a lot about how to stay out of real estate jail and how to do things correctly, [but] they don't really teach you how to get clients and actually do the business, and you know actually do the job. So, I think a lot of people are in for a rude awakening once they get their license." – Dawn Brenengen
