How before status changes on house from closing date?

A house that I was very much interested (put two offers in on it) supposedly closed on 12/17/2010 according to the listing agent.  According to Zillow.com and a few other sites including the listing site the status still shows pending. Since I have been given misinformation about this property before I know it will be a waste of time trying to get information from the listing agent. Could someone here please advise of how I can research this myself? Thanks in advance of any assistance you can provide.

My second question is how do you find a knowledgeable and trustworthy agent. I specifically am looking for someone experienced in REO-Foreclosures.

Yes, when dealing with listing aggregation sites such as Zillow, these types of problems are not uncommon, because  Zillow is dependent upon this information being sourced from lots of different places (which are often times inaccurate or outdated).  For the most accurate and up-to-date information on Baton Rouge area real estate I would recommend going to the source -- checking out http://mls.gbrar.com which is the public website built directly on the local MLS's live database and provides real-time access to local listing information.

Zillow puts the sale date into the site when it has been entered into the local government databases.  Sometimes this is a few weeks, sometimes it is several months.  

Otherwise, the status listed on Zillow is dependent on the agent updating the status.
