Why Are All Realtors Named Nancy?

The last time we went house hunting our realtor was named Nancy. We are now dipping our toes in the house search pool again and found a house we'd like to check out and the realtor listing the house is named .... Nancy. We talked to Nancy the 2nd who is out of town but promised to have an associate call us who is named ... Nancy.

What's up with this? Was Nancy just a ridiculously popular name from that generation or are all women named Nancy immediately told to pursue real estate when they take the Possible Careers Quiz in high school? And if that's true, then is it possible that the people putting out these Find Your Best Career worksheets aren't really taking our interests and skills into consideration but merely lumping us into categories alphabetically? And why am I going straight to a conspiracy theory?
