Steve,

Depends if they were leggings, (not the best way to represent yourself), however, they are some very nice yoga pants that look like slacks.  We see them here in Santa Barbara worn by many women including myself.  If it was my open house, I would wear a dress or dress slacks.  A

I would think that she is unprofessional and my first impression of her would not be good.

I have seen agents show up in daisy duke short shorts, high spike hooker heels and boobs hanging out. How much trouble would it be to dress like you are running a business?

I guess, it depends on the location. I would not be surprised to much to see that here in L.A. since every one does yoga and you can connect better to younger buyers who all wear some kind of tight pants:) 

I wear black tight pants, white top and a some kind of jacket most of the time and I always get complements for my style.
