About JR Mercantile Commercial Real Estate Advisors

JR Mercantile is a boutique Commercial Real Estate Brokerage and Advisory firm in Calgary. Although we’re known for our inner-city expertise in retail and restaurants, we support clients with a diverse range of commercial and industrial properties across Alberta.

Why Choose Us As Your Preferred Commercial Real Estate Advisor?

A key reason you work with us is because we don’t over-extend our team. By limiting our number of engagements, we maintain our customer service standards. As a result, we’re able to commit the time needed to support you and get the job done right.

Our Approach with Leasing Properties

We take the time necessary to understand you, your needs, and your property. Our goal is to recognize the larger opportunity for your property, that others will miss. Then we partner with you to bring your properties to life. This includes making your properties easier to find and to show remotely. The result is reduced vacancy times and maximized value realized.

Unlike other brokerages, we operate with a team structure that enables cooperation amongst brokers. Our collaborative compensation structure eliminates the competition within our team and allows everyone to do what’s right for clients.
