The Legislature hereby finds and declares that the practice of real estate brokerage is a privilege and any person engaged in the professional practice of real estate brokerage should possess the requisite experience and training and be subject to adequate regulation and control. As a matter of public policy, it is necessary to protect the public interest from the unauthorized, unqualified and unregulated practice of real estate brokerage through enactment of this article and to regulate the granting of such privileges and their use. This article shall be liberally construed to carry out these purposes.
