No, why would I? That's the whole point of an open house. Maybe he's looking to buy.
Plus, we always need decent vendors. God knows we have some indecent ones! LMAO

I don't do open hosues, so it would be a bit tough to stop by to introduce himself to me... that being said, in principle, I wouldn't mind so long as he restricted himself to introductions to me and not to prospective buyers and didn't take me away from speaking with prospective buyers.

No, not at all.  Same with lenders, stagers, etc.  They just need to announce who they are and why they are there and allow me to prioritize buyers over them if the house is busy.  Nothing worse than someone trying to sell you on something when you're trying to sell the house!

Generally, no.  However, open homes in my area tend to be non-stop standing room only with non-stop questions from guests.  That means I would not have time to talk with you.

I do not mind. Of course, I want them to respect that I am holding the home open for a reason. I would not want them to be a barrier to meeting buyers.

I have not had a problem when inspectors, lenders, etc. stop by to introduce themselves and chat for a bit.

Thank you all for taking the time to answer. 

I ask this question because I have a hard time walking into real estate offices uninvited. The first thing I usually see is a no solicitation sign on the door or at the front desk... I immediately feel like I am invading peoples work space. I know many, if not most inspectors do this but it makes me terribly uncomfortable.
