Can't hurt.

They won't know about you being interested in working with them otherwise. Sorta like fishing. Just throw out the bait and see what bites it. I've had good luck by talking with the owners/managers to see if they're open to an estimate and then staying in contact with them. Good luck!

A letter, without meeting them in person or at least a phone call, is a waste of time.

Realtors

I've had good results dealing with Realtors who work with Corp relocations. They seem to have been with their companys a while and will make referals to others.
