Can I be a real estate assistant with no experience?

I would like to find a job as an office assistant for something like real estate. I want to get into real estate but would like to be an assistant in order to learn more about the business and see if I like it. But I have no prior experience in office work and the previous jobs I have have nothing to do with the field. I live in Houston Texas. I have searched jobs on craigslist but never hear back when I apply. Most of them want experience. I was wondering if anyone knows of real estate companies in houston that hire assistants? I applied online for century 21 but I need to find more companies.

You need a license as you will handle real estate documents. Most places make the agents take turns on the phone, filing, etc and do not pay anyone to do this.
