When you request an Offering Memorandum, you have the ability to fill in additional fields of data specific to the property type, upload property photos, add financial and demographic data and with a click of button, create an automated Offering Memorandum which you can forward to targeted clients.

To learn more about the new Automated Offering Memorandum tool, recorded training is located in the Training Library of Commercial Resource under ORION Web Site Basics/Sales Professionals. Live webinar training will also be accessible to all Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices affiliates in May and June. Watch for announcements directly from Commercial REsource with log-in information for the following dates:
