Our Local Presence

SVN|JJMottram is a well established, full-service commercial real estate brokerage firm based in Montgomery, Alabama that services Southeast and Central Alabama markets. We are proud to offer specialized commercial brokerage services with a strong focus on providing a quality experience to our clients.

One of the greatest strengths of SVN|JJMottram is our intimate knowledge of commercial real estate in Southeast and Central Alabama, specifically in Montgomery, Autauga, Elmore, Lee, Bullock, and Macon Counties. SVN|JJMottram Managing Director, John Mottram, brings over 36 years of brokerage experience, specializing in commercial investments (income producing and vacant), development and re-development, land, leasing, retail, single tenant net leased properties and tenant representation.

John started his career with Jim Wilson & Associates, where he leased regional shopping centers such as the River Chase Galleria in Birmingham, AL. He later worked at McClinton & Company for over 16 years where he was the Vice President of Leasing and Development. In 2007, John founded JJ Mottram Company and celebrated his 10 year anniversary with the opening of SVN|JJMottram.  He specializes in land acquisition, such as the compilation of 70 different parcels assembled for Midtown Plaza in Montgomery.  In addition, he has developed a strong ability to market commercial properties for such clients as Walmart Realty and site selections for clients such as Circle K. Mostly recently, John has developed properties for Verizon, Family Dollar, Starbucks, Kay Jewelers, Buffalo Wild Wings, Circle K and Whataburger. SVN|JJMottram has a collective experience which positions us well to be a premier service provider for land acquisition, commercial development projects, coordination of zoning, commercial planning, tenant representation, along with the selling and leasing of commercial real estate assets.

Our National Reach

In 2016 our company joined SVN, one of the most recognized commercial real estate brands in the country. As a result of this strategic alliance, we now have a much greater network of collaborating commercial brokers from around the world.

If, for example, we have a local client who needs commercial space outside the Montgomery area, we can easily connect with our national team to locate the ideal space for this client. Alternatively, if someone outside the Montgomery area is trying to find commercial space in Montgomery, our local team will help them find their desired space.

This national reach is especially beneficial to clients who are selling commercial property in Southeast and Central Alabama. Our experienced team will not only ensure that their property is presented to the entire local market, but with SVN’s national reach we will be able to expose their property to national investment markets, providing vast exposure that can’t be matched with locally focused companies.
