Where could I go about finding out how to put real-estate into a ROTH?

https://pensco.com/, and http://www.trustetc.com/ are the companies I am most familiar with, although there are others. A search on "self directed IRA" will turn up a number of fairly recent articles, as well as a few other custodians.

Before you try to talk to a real estate agent about purchasing something, be sure you've read a bunch and understand the forms and process for your IRA custodian. Based on my experience, it is highly unlikely that your real estate agent will have a clue what you are trying to do, and you will have to be quite proactive (i.e., tactfully demanding) in directing the process.
