How about contact a local realtor in your area and let them recommend someone for you to work with in Texas.

Not to burst any bubbles, but an agent on the buyers' side doesn't need short sale experience as the buyers' agent isn't the one communicating with the lender to help make things happen. The listing agent needs to have short sale experience.

With that, don't use an agent who has no clue about anything to help you buy. If they have a clue, they've participated in short sales before.

Hi,

The best way to find agents with this experience is in Google. Most of agents who have experience can be communicated through Google. You can also talk to your friends who have an idea about it.
