Diane Skurat - since you decided to send 'everyone' a 'Thank You' note, do send it to 'everyone'!

This itself sets you apart from most agents - and you never know someone may like you and decide to work with you, just because of this.

Good Luck.

Evelyn Johnston just nailed it. The rest will be up to the universe and your lasting impression. Some lied to you, others will fire their Realtors, some may return to you, like the prodigal son, for writing that note.

I follow Evelyn Johnston suggestion.  Open house attendees know the rountine.  If they claim to have an agent you don't 'bug' them.  

Just send a thank you & invitatation to give seller feedback via their agent.

Walla!  If they don't have an agent they may just call you

Treat them as other people's clients that might be interested in purchasing one of your listings via their realtor. They might still come to you as they might've been lying about being "attached", or maybe it wasn't anything in writing.

I like Evelyn's response.  Just know that not everyone who says they have a realtor really does.  Often it's just a defense mechanism to avoid the sales pitch.

Diane, I'd focus on the people who haven't hooked up with an agent yet. A lot of agents don't appreciate it if they think you are trying to flirt with their clients!  And there really are enough to go around.

I would not send a note to folks with a realtor, especially since you thanked them when you first meet them at the front door, for coming to your Open House.  Not wanting to appear to take anyone else's clients, for me, I would not send a note Diane Skurat
