You could look at profiles, here on Trulia and then make a few calls and discuss what you have in mind. I'ts best if you work with an agent who is experienced with the area in which you are buying.
Best of Luck to you

Congratulations on your decision to buy! It is helpful to have someone who has experience with REO properties (foreclosed properties.) Most agents will have lenders they can recommend to you.
Remember when working with an agent that is the listing agent for the property you want to purchase that their fiduciary responsibility is to their seller. If you have a buyers agent that agent will sign an agreement with you that confirms they are your agent - therefore, their fiduciary responsibility is to you as the buyer.
Hope you find your dream home!

In general you would rather work with the listing agent instead of a buyer's agen because the listing agent will have more insentive to sell you the property him self. This way of doing business is not so good, but many realtors will do it just to make more money.
Look online for properties and call the agents.
Please be careful with this and make sure your interests, and not those of others, are protected.

My guess is that you are a first time buyer. You are going to be making the largest investment of your life.
Wouldn't you feel more comfortable if you had someone representing your interests? You may not be aware, but in most situations the cost of the buyer's agent commissions are paid by the seller, so you are getting market expertise, professional representation, and an excellent negotiator for free.
Let me know if you need help.
