Some Happy Words From Our Clients
I have struggled during one month searching for flats in the Tokyo area with many real estate agents, and had some refused, UNTIL I reached Apts.jp :
Within only a few days, they proposed me several flats, corresponding perfectly to my expectations and demands. Later on I signed a contract and got the keys.
Everything was fast, smooth and efficient.On top of it, they are really kind people that really care customer's needs and really good English speakers.
Highly recommended !
Out of all the agents I have spoken with during the time I was looking for an apartment, Apts.jp in all honesty was the most straight forward. What they offered and said is indeed what I got and for someone with a busy scheduled like myself, it not only saves time but energy as well.
In every step I have felt that Jason was there to assist me, and the best thing is he was actually listening to what my needs are rather than closing a sale. The customer service I received from Apts.jp is worth well more than the fee I paid and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an apartment in Tokyo.
My situation was a bit unusual I suppose as my real estate needs evolved a few times since originally reaching out to Apts.jp. Being under a strict deadline (as I had to move out of my apartment in a few months), it was critical that both Jason and Sho understood my ever-evolving needs, were flexible and most importantly made themselves available. Not only did they accomplish that, but have remained very helpful even till today. Any small question that I may have about the property or even small troubleshooting questions, they are always quick and attentive to help me out. Highly recommend Apts.jp!
I am very satisfied with the agency's services and I could recommend it to anyone looking for a flat in Tokyo.
Yujin answered each of my questions, both about documents and everyday life. He was always polite and ready to help.
The apartment meets my expectations, and the formalities associated with the move thanks to Yujin were clear and I didn't have any problems with them.
I've dealt with many real estate agents in Japan. Most of them are nice at the start and then become unavailable if you don't choose something quickly. They start to act like they're doing you a favor. Even though I generally knew what I wanted, I still needed to see a few places and be absolutely sure I found a good fit for me.
This quality and respect continued all through the move-in, and after when I had questions.
I've never had such detailed and reassuring service like this from a real estate agent in Japan. 100% recommended.
