I took a licensing class a few months ago, half the room were investors like myself, after discussing the restrictions that a license puts on investors I am not sure how many will apply for the license.

Though I passed the test easily, still not sure if or when I will apply, but will likely get rid of my rentals first.

I hope not. Actually CA has been in decline for many years. With the internet technology there are still way too many agents.

The help is on the horizon, Apple, Google offers $70K to interns 3 free meals a day, 7 days a week. At Apple 20 some year old intern gets paid even more(80K).  You get a free massage at work.

Any brokerage will offer free meals? Will you get a free massage from your broker? Playing Tokemen Go all day long....
