Multiple Offers and Highest, Best and Final

As an Exclusive Buyer's Agent here in the Chicago market, I can tell you that multiple offers for REO properties with it's subsequent, Highest, Best and Final offers is becoming very common. I would like to use this forum to express my utter frustration and anger towards the system currently in place to handle these multiple offer scenarios.
