To answer your easiest question first...yes there are agents who specialize in foreclosures.
Now for the rest....
Foreclosures can be a good deal but remember the banks are not giving their properties away. Also they are being sold "as-is" which means you are buying whatever mess may or may not be behind the walls. So you can get a home inspection but they will not fix anything.
