The whole idea in any job is to do a great job.  Does it matter where you come from if you cannot do the job.  In our field of commercial real estate Roger Staubach (football great)  started a commercial real estate company that specialized in relocating large ccompanies.  He definitely could get in the door with his fame to the decision makers, because of his celeb recognition...that was not enough, he had to be able to perform and really represent these people for the best deal, and he did.  A

If they want to go through the education and proper tests, passing them, then I don't know why they shouldn't become a Real Estate Agent.

I think it would be great to have their prospect base, with oodles of money.

I don't really care, Amanda.  Though, I'm curious to see if any of them make it for the long run.

They walk into the real estate arena with positive collateral that most agents did/do not possess.

They have an advantage. They are going to play it. (SMART).
