Unless it's bank owned, due to privacy issues, not sure any agent will give a name on a public forum; you can however check local public records, ask a neighbor(s), ask any local agent offline, etc.... more
If you are asking for legal advice ("do i have a legal case.") you probably won't get it here. Realtors are not able to give legal or tax advice unless they are additionally licensed in the appropriate field - and that comes straight from our national code of ethics.
That said, we would need quite a bit more information about your situation to give much, if any useful advice.
Two things to consider in real estate:
1. Nothing is done in real estate until the paperwork is signed. There are also no verbal agreements. As bad as it may sound the banks can really say anything they want until they sign your offer - only then do they have to perform on anything.
2. Short sales are incredibly difficult transactions to deal with. The bank can choose to not accept your offer and then take another for any number of reason, and most of the time they won't even give you a reason.
There are deals to be found when working with short sales and foreclosures, but with that comes tons of headaches. If you are looking for a quick and painless transaction, your chances are better (however, not guaranteed) when purchasing from a private party.
There's pros and cons to doing that. I would talk about them a little, but any negatives I would say about it would seem self-serving since I work in Athens. Maybe one of these out of area guys will give you some insight.
