The following is from the California Department of Real Estate's publication entitled "Guide to Unlicensed Assistants". This is valuable information as many of you may be considering working for an experienced real estate salesperson as an apprentice or assistant prior to you actually obtaining a license.
Here is an excerpt from the section on "Open Houses"
"With the principal’s consent, assisting licensees at an open house intended for the public by placing signs, greeting the public, providing factual information from or
handing out preprinted materials prepared by or reviewed and approved for use by the licensee, or arranging appointments with the licensee. During the holding of an
open house, only a licensee may engage in the following: show or exhibit the property, discuss terms and conditions of a possible sale, discuss other features of the property, such as its location, neighborhood or schools, or engage in any other conduct which is used, designed or structured for solicitation purposes with respect to the property."
