Helping people find the right commercial property in Calgary is what I do best and it’s pleasure to assist businesses find the right spot to conduct their operations. Here are just some of the kind words my clients have said about me and my team:


Chris Sherry at Narland Management Services said…

Dear John and Ania,

We are writing to acknowledge our appreciation of your recent leasing services and to recognize the professional manner in the way that you have represented the Landlord, yourselves and prospective Tenants.

After acquiring Crowfoot Village Shopping Centre in 2012, Norland executed a value add strategy which included a physical upgrade to the exterior of the Centre and an aggressive leasing campaign to deal with the 17% vacancy at the time.

The leasing plan was spearheaded by Mr. John Moss and his colleague Ms. Ania Gryzewski of CB Richards Ellis Calgary.
John and Ania were able to secure an excellent mix of new retail tenants including, food service, professional services, therapeutic services and health and beauty.

These professionals assisted the Landlord in negotiating market deals, determining appropriate CRU re-demising sizes suitable to the neighborhood and market, as well as worked effectively with the city of Calgary planning department on behalf of the Landlord to satisfy parking variances and assistance with budgeting landlords work.

Within 9 months the Centre enjoyed 100% occupancy, Narland would not hesitate to recommend you both and we look forward to working with you on our next project.

I am very pleased to write this letter of recommendation for John Moss and the team at CBRE. They were instrumental in supporting the School of Hospitality & Tourism in creating our 10,000 square foot Culinary Campus in the heart of downtown Calgary.

When I first met John, I explained the vision and expectation of what space we would require. Through his insight, knowledge and connections, he found us a spot that fit our objectives perfectly. John was instrumental in providing key data for me to create an effective business case to bring to our Executive Management and Board to approve the project.  John also helped bridge the relationship between the landlord and me to successfully conclude negotiations and have everyone buy into the vision.

I would be pleased to work with John and the CBRE team again for any of our future projects that required space identification and acquisition or leasing. John and his group are experts who understand how to determine a client’s needs and deliver.  Please contact me if you require any further information at 403-284-8228.

Within ten minutes of meeting with John we had found the perfect space for our concept. Within a day, we had a deal in principle, and with his superb negotiating we had a lease signed within a few weeks.

My business partner and I were extremely pleased with John’s professionalism, honesty and candor. After dealing with a number of less than stellar brokers, we were relieved once John stepped into the process.

We are presently running our business out of our dream space and plan to use John should our business grow to multiple locations.

I would highly recommend his services to anyone interested in finding the right location and space for their business. In three short words… he gets it.

Dr. Charlie at Rocky Ridge Pet Hospital said…

I was very pleased with John Moss. He helped me with renting the premises for our Rocky Ridge Pet Hospital. He was very punctual with the appointments we had, always replying to the questions I had in a very short time, explaining the questions in a understandable language.

John has great knowledge about the industry and helped me a lot with his advises. After everything was signed with the landlord John was always following up to make sure everything was going well.

I would strongly recommend John to anyone who is looking for advise or help in this industry.

I would highly recommend John Moss for any commercial leasing needs. John was instrumental in helping us grow to a second location. He is extremely insightful in finding potential available spaces for lease throughout the city.

John also was a great asset who helped us negotiate and secure a lease that was financially a good fit for us. John’s knowledge, experience, and contacts make him invaluable in the Calgary commercial leasing market.

Kim at The Ferocious Grape said…

I first met John Moss in 2006 when I was looking for space to open a retail store. It was my first time starting a business and negotiating a lease, so I really needed a commercial real estate agent that I could connect with and who would be patient with a first timer.

I already had a location in mind and needed to work with someone who could get the ball rolling before the space was taken. John has a very good reputation in the industry. It seemed very easy for him to negotiate a great lease agreement for me. John was very thorough with every detail always putting my interests first and making sure I understood everything; there was a lot of coffee being drunk due to all of my questions.

I really appreciated the professionalism of the negotiation but also appreciated the respect that I was given through out the whole process. My store has been operating for ten months now, John still keeps in touch and he is always around if I have any concerns or questions. It’s nice to know that there are still people out there that can be depended on.
I highly recommend John to anyone searching for that perfect space whatever his or her needs.

John, I want to thank you for your contribution, hard work and dedication to helping us secure our third location in our growing company.

Your understanding of the demographics, negotiating leases and unparrallel relationships you have in the Calgary market make it a joy working with you and your team.

Being in tune with upcoming projects, and having strong relationships with the local, regional and national landlords it’s a real asset to have you working with us.

I look forward to working with you to secure our next location and helping us grow in the thriving Calgary market.

Yours truly,
