Adrian from UK

 If you are looking to get things done when it comes to property/apartment searching, and you are looking for excellent customer service and execution all in English (or Japanese), Kaz is your guy. Very quick, responsive and attentive. Thanks again for the help, glad we could close on the new apartment so quickly.

Neil from US

 Very grateful for Kaz-san's expertise and resources. Highly recommended...

Yasmin & Chris from US and New Zealand

 We were very pleased with our experience here. Kaz is extremely professional, understands the Tokyo market, and empathizes with the difficulties foreign residents face when renting homes in Japan. With his assistance we have happily settled into a beautiful, affordable apartment that meets all of our needs! We will always recommend him to our friends in the future!

Emma from France

 I really recommend Kaz, he was patient and did his best to find the perfect place for me. He can translate everything if needed so no worries if you don't speak Japanese.

Vincent from France

 Working with Kaz was very smooth and easy - we were very fast in finding the best deal for what I was looking for!

 I have great experience working with Kaz. I especially appreciated his response time and how quickly we closed the deal. Any question I had, he answered very fast and proficient. I will be happy to work again with Kaz for my next apartment hunt.

Getting an apartment in Japan is a complex and byzantine process. Most problems back in the states can be solved by spending more money, but that doesn't apply here. Unless you're proficient in Japanese, DIY is not going to save you money. You'll probably see no fee apartments on the classified pages and think you can Google translate the whole way. You need a professional. I was nonchalant about the apartment search, then ran into crunch time, and Kaz saved the day.

I'm an engineer and I really appreciated how effective Kaz was. He iterates quickly. You show up for a 1-1 consultation, specify some parameters for your apartment, and he will quickly narrowly down relevant entries. The next day he will give you a tour of a few of those places. It's rare to find a real estate agent that is as fluent in English, and the small talk is a nice bonus. That said, the process is no frills.

I'm a tech savvy person, but again, don't waste time going to the classified and thinking you can filter and curate yourself. For starters, some buildings in more local neighborhoods aren't thrilled to onboard a foreigner. Even if they did, the language barrier is huge. There's dozens of paperwork in the process, the risk with Google translation is not worth it. Finally, a professional real estate agent has the latest up-to-date rental availability on a special database whereas the public classified pages are likely stale and not updated. The market moves quick here, things can be gone in a few days, so that delayed / old data is huge. Conversely, Kaz can show you properties not yet on those sites.

Rafael from Spain

 They were very friendly and helpful from the very first contact, answering all our questions and requests as well as offering advice and suggestions. English friendly and to the point, much more efficient than other agents.

Tim from US

As many have stated before me, Kaz is a true professional when it comes to real-estate in Tokyo. Additionally, he is fluent in English and understands the cultural differences that foreigners may face renting in Japan. This is crucial when first coming to Japan.

For my personal experience, Kaz walked me through every step of the way in the renting processing in Japan. We spent over a month looking at many different apartments to find the place that would perfectly fit my lifestyle. He truly went the extra mile by contacting the different management companies and negotiating special conditions like discounts on the price. You cannot go wrong with someone who has a great character like Kaz!

Aira from the Philippines

 Kaz was very patient and listened attentively to all my requirements and provided great options. He is a very thoughtful agent and great to work with with!

Rod from Mexico

 Kaz's help was amazing, he supported me from start to finish to find the best apartment, solving all my doubts. I am very grateful for his excellent work, as it has made my move to Japan much easier.

Martin from Argentina

 Kaz is a great, responsible professional who helped us find a place in very short time. This is our first time in Japan, so he explained the general process and responded to our many inquiries.

We were able to find an apartment that rents to foreigners in just a couple of weeks, even considering the pandemic situation and new year’s holidays.
Highly recommended.

Bo from the Philippines

 My wife and I tried at least 5 real estate agents, and Kaz was the best. He was the only one who found exactly the flat we were looking for (perfect location, size, etc.) at a cheaper rent than we expected. Because we were still in quarantine, Kaz arranged for a Skype viewing. Kaz is also stunningly prompt in responding to our queries - even during evening and weekends.

Johan from France

 Kaz has been amazing. I owe him a lot to get my apartment. I had an unexpected issue that was compromizing the deal and Kaz brillantly reacted. He's been very supportive and responsive all along.

Very helpful as well when you get your apartment and need some help to communicate with landlord.

Drew from US

 This was the third apartment that Kaz helped me find. As usual he was very professional and helped me find a great place fast. I would highly recommend contacting him if you are looking for a new home or apartment.

Patrick from US

 Kaz was really helpful throughout the process and from the start did whatever he could to find an apartment that fit the parameters I was looking for. If I had any doubts or concerns he was always understanding and efficient in finding additional options- highly recommend.
