Do a Google search for realtors in the area you are considering. Then go to the websites of at least six of them, or until you find one that you like and contact them through the site. If they are any good they will contact you shortly.

Keep in mind that any local agent can help you with with showings, information, etc., it does not necessarily need to be the listing agent as we all have acess to the same information--therefore consider calling any local realty office.

Hi Hong,

Although I usually advocate against getting involved with dual agency, in the case of a foreclosure (REO), you're better off just going to the listing agent. So much nonsense and paperwork that the listing agent will have the best available data with the least possible delay. Call the agent whose sign is on the house. That's the quickest route to making a viable offer on properties like these.

Good luck!

Hi Hong, I would add the agent you choose to work with can help you with any listed property. Because you have posted under "foreclosure" I'm guessing that you have seen some foreclosure info that has perked your interest. Often the info you see online is premature - ie, reflected a potential future distressed sale as the owner has missed mortgage payments - the status that is picked up is lis pendens. In these cases, the property is not yet available to be pursued.

An agent can assist you with understanding the particulars of any property. The good news is that there are many good values. Prior posters are right, this is a great place to begin your search for an agent. Identify several, interview them and pick the one that best meets your needs.

Good luck to you,

Hong,
On top of the page is a section called "Find a Pro." Click on that; specify the area you are looking for. There will be several agents to choose from. You can click on their names, read their answers and blog posts to decide if they seem appropriate you your situation. Once you find one you want to contact, there is a section on the right side of the page to reach the agent. You can send a message from there or put their name into a search engine and get a phone and email for them.
I hope this helps.
