You can search www.Realtor.com for agents in your area and select the ones that have SFR and/or CDPE designation.

You can also search http://www.cdpe.com/ directly for CDPE agents in your area.

There are many ways to go about finding a good buyers agent.  The first thing I would suggest would be to ask around.  Ask your friends, at work, etc.  Many people have bought a home before and have had either good or bad experiences with a real estate agent.

Next, because you seem to only want a short sale property, talk to the agents and see if they have short sale experience.  Honestly, in my opinion, this isn't quite as important on the buy-side as it is on the sell-side, but he or she has to have done at least one or two before so they can help educate you on the process.

There are a few designations out there you can also look for.  CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) is one that comes to mind, but honestly, nothing beats experience.

Good luck in your home purchase.
