There may be an agent that works directly with this bank (though it's not one of the predominent lenders in the metro Atlanta arrea), but it will be tough. If you can find out which brokerage they generally use for their foreclosure properties, you may be able to at least get a head start that way.
Best of luck, and if nothing else--try to get a jump on it the moment it goes on the market, and work with an agent that's familiar with the foreclosure process.
This can sometimes be done and sometimes not - depending on if there are legal hurdles the bank must finish before it can legally sell the property. If you get in touch I would be happy to see what I can do to help you. The following program is particularly valuable to you and anyone seeking properties sold "AS-IS".
The Wise Buyer Program provides over $5000 worth of free home structural and major systems analysis in addition to top buyer representation. There is nothing else like it in Atlanta - with this system you are more informed because you know what you are buying Before you ever submit your offer! That approach has many significant benefits - for more information, see the site below.
I would be happy to assist you with this opportunity, and show you others as well.

Because I sell for two different banks, I have even sold some of their inventory before it hit the market. I would be glad to try for you. It takes knowing who to reach in order to get someone to entertain an offer prior to listing with real estate. Let me know how best to reach you and I would be glad to assist you. I love a challenge.

The Consultant will work with you and your contractor to get the repairs defined, mandatory minimums met, and the HUD package in to the underwriter - as fast as possible. As the project moves forward beyond closing, they will also release progress payments to you and the Contractor -- and insure that the project is protected all the way to the Certificate of Occupancy.
I am a 203K Consultant Trainer, 203k Consultant and I own a Construction Company. We charge $150.00 for a Feasibility Study. A Feasibility Study Inspection is used to answer the question "is this property feasible" for the 203k loan. It is a quick walk thru inspection to identify what repairs must be done to meet HUD's property standards, your desired items and offer a ball park cost estimate before you have to bear the full expense of full blown Consultant Work Write Up.
