JapanRE.net is a Japan real estate portal and operated by Robert Dozier, a real estate consultant (and licensed associate in the state of Oklahoma) with Platina, KK, a Tokyo-based real estate brokerage and consultancy firm. Platinum provide real estate consultancy for investors interested in the incredible RE investment opportunities in Japan including access to a portfolio of distressed properties; home searches and guidance for expatriates intending to take up residence in Japan (or those already here who wish to change residence); special searches and consultation for companies either starting up an office, land to build, or looking to relocate; and finally consultancy and representation for those wishing to sell real estate in Japan.
We provide within this website, a wealth of Japan-related information, including guidance to schools and neighborhoods, houses of worship, entertainment choices, and much more. This info is provided for the benefit of expatriate transferees who are taking up assignment in Japan and searching for a Japan residence (house or an apartment). If your company does not provide orientation services we can also provide this on a case-by-case basis, I have a wealth of experience for traveling to many parts of Metro Tokyo including Yokohama and can provide information on international schools, places to shop, dining and entertainment and so forth. I will be happy to give you my opinion on best neighborhood choices taking into account a number of variables such as commuting time to the office, international school location, each particular neighborhood's positives and negatives, shopping and dining choices, medical treatment, and so forth.
Japan currently has great opportunities for investors looking to diversify real-estate-holding portfolios as there are a number of distressed properties which are now available to those high-wealth individuals and organizations that have access to cash and/or are able to get financing. Most of these distressed office buildings and residential properties are "off market", i.e. the info for these will never reach the public. We have access to some attractive ones due to our relationships with lenders, owners, asset managers and brokers. A large part of what we do at Platina, KK. is due diligence and consultancy for our clients seeking said opportunities.
Why Platina KK should be YOUR choice:
Our company is staffed with bicultural and bilingual professionals skilled in international business dealings and local business customs. We leverage our understanding and comfortability with the Japanese market to effectively liase between our western and Pan Asian clientele and Japanese sellers, landlords and the various real estate-related firms in Japan who do not have the resources or background to effectively service and deal with western investors. For renters: Having lived in Japan (as a foreigner of half-Japanese descent), I fully understand how one's place of residence is a HUGE factor for expats. Convenience and avoidance living in areas with traffic issues and/or wall-to-wall, people-infused, rush-hour train commutes is of utmost importance. On the other hand this has to be balanced with expatriates who have children going to school and their commutes.
