Over the years, the Japanese real estate market has changed dramatically. Active leasing and overall management of properties has become the norm as opposed to the simple buy and hold strategy of the pre-bubble era. This coupled with the securitization of real estate assets following the birth of the J-REIT market in 2001, increased investment activity by foreign investment funds, a big turn of situation of real estate industry in Japan triggered by the global economic crisis, revision of the accounting system by IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards), influence of environmental problem, consequences of disaster of the Great East Japan Earthquake, and Population Decrease, Declining Birth rate and Aging Population have made the real estate industry in Japan more sophisticated and complicated. Given this market environment, industry expertise and professional asset management are keys to maximizing asset value and returns, and CRE (Corporate Real Estate) strategic management necessity has increased day by day.

Unlike in the past, traditional real estate expertise in the areas of development and property management is not enough. Financial knowledge and expertise has become increasingly important given the competitive real estate environment. However, the number of professionals who have these skills is small.

Since our establishment in 1999, our expertise has grown beyond appraising real estate to include ‘Total Consultations” or a variety of services including real estate, architecture/design, and finance. More specifically, we offer consultation on urban development, co-building projects, and execution of engineering reports.

We strive to continually improve our services with the goal of creating an integrated and knowledgeable team of professionals who are well prepared to succeed in the complex and competitive real estate market.

Going forward, we plan to take advantage of our core competencies and integrated capabilities to offer our clients the best possible solutions.
