Would any real estate professionals be willing to answer some interview style questions for a current RE student?

I am currently working on my final project for one of my RE classes, and I was hoping to find some informed real estate professionals who would be willing to answer some questions pertaining to the profession.
I would love to get the perspective of people in different fields of real estate (agents, brokers, mortgage brokers, appraisers, property managers, etc.) so I can have a full understanding of the different facets of real estate (I want to be fully informed)
The questions are as follows:
1. How did you end up in the real estate business?
2. How did you end up in your particular position in the real estate business?
3. What do you like about your job in the real estate business?
4. What do you not like about your job in the real estate business?
5. What do you like about the real estate business generally?
6. What do you not like about the real estate business generally?
7. What prior education/training prepared you for your current profession?
8. How has the real estate industry changed since you became a real estate professional?
9. What changes/challenges do you see in the future for the real estate industry and for real estate professionals?
10. What advice would you give someone considering a career in real estate?
11. How did you develop business for yourself when you were first starting out?

I would also love to get your contact details -- privately if preferred (Name, Phone/Email, and Job Title)
