Can my unlicensed assistant call potential buyers and sellers and make an appointment for a licensed agent to talk to the prospect?

No. This is often referred to as telemarketing, and only a licensed real estate broker or salesperson may make such calls. Both the Real Estate License Act and TREC rules make it clear that all solicitation work must be conducted by licensees.
