Buyer/Tenant Representative

JMCRE specializes in the representation of buyers and tenants seeking property or commercial space to own or lease in Metropolitan Birmingham. Our goal is to provide our clients with the most comprehensive and complete list of properties available that meets their requirements from which they can make selections to visit. We take the arduous process of sifting through dozens of properties and real estate agents, a detailed job that can take weeks away from your business, and reduce it to reviewing a chart and making initial selections within a matter of a few hours. We enjoy a reputation throughout the market and the real estate industry of having negotiated some of the most beneficial and advantageous contracts and leases for our clients consummated in Birmingham. Our client list is extensive and includes some of the top businesses and firms in the city and there are few key Birmingham properties in which we have not placed tenants. We have a wonderful working relationship with other real estate management companies and our grasp and understanding of the market provides our clients with a distinct advantage in locating and negotiating the best lease or contract for their ideal building or commercial space.


Since JMCRE specializes in downtown real estate, that is the majority of the properties we list. We will consider taking a listing on most any commercial property in central Alabama; however, we prefer commercial or investment properties downtown and on Birmingham’s Southside. Because of our years of experience, marketing skills and noted success, we are constantly sought out by real estate owners to handle the sale of their properties. Although our company is a small operation, we insist on giving proper attention to each and every listing we take. Therefore, at times, we must turn down listings and recommend other brokers who either have more personnel or specializes in the type of property the owner wishes to sell. However, we never turn down listing a historic property unless it is overpriced.


JMCRE offers clients its experience and expertise on many aspects of their investment real estate. These include  historic building restoration and renovation, property or space location, highest and best use determination, marketing strategies, property evaluation and analyzation, construction cost analysis, returns on real estate investments, property management decisions, contract and lease negotiations and analysis as well as providing solutions to problem properties. If you have questions or concerns on commercial or investment real estate, we will gladly meet with you to discuss the matter. Our first meeting is always at no cost to our client.


Like our brokerage program, we are selective about the properties we elect to represent and market for lease. Our areas of expertise include leasing office and retail space particularly in Birmingham’s downtown and Southside. This service is many times offered in conjunction with the locating and purchasing of investment property for a client. We do direct the leasing for the properties we develop until the property is fully operational. We will be happy to meet with you to discuss the property you wish to lease and direct you to a real estate company who is best suited to meet your needs.

Property Management

Because of the size of the staff at JMCRE, we only manage properties we own or properties owned by clients we have had for many years. We do manage the properties we own and will be glad to meet with you to discuss your property and suggest a company who fits your management needs.
