Question:

Robert, a developer who is unlicensed, hires Yvonne, a broker, to sell his properties. While Yvonne is out of town, Robert shows property, quotes prices and makes sales. Have Robert or Yvonne violated the Real Estate Law?

A Neither Robert nor Yvonne has done anything wrong.
Explaination

Robert is the owner of the property being sold. Thus, the sale is considered a for sale by owner (FSBO) transaction which does not require a license, as the private seller is acting for their own account, not as an agent of another.
