Some Happy Words From Our Clients
Iryna and Julien
Our overall experience has been very positive. Yujin was very active and answered our questions at any time of day. He was also very receptive to our needs and tried his best to accommodate them. He was not pushy and worked around our schedule. Lastly, we’d like to add that even after the move-in, he helped us with the issues that we were having with the internet.
Apts.jp was very accommodating in my apartment search. As a foreigner, finding housing in Japan can be a very daunting and complicated process -- fortunately, Apts.jp made it as smooth as possible.
I worked with Jason, who was extremely patient and communicative throughout. We worked through the criteria of items most important to me to find an apartment that best suited my lifestyle and location needs. Jason put forward his best effort to recommend me options that fit my budget range and desired qualities, which was not an easy undertaking!
The company was also very reliable post-move in. Jason help set up utilities and was there to advise on the miscellaneous issues that arise when you move into a new apartment. Overall, it was a great experience and working with Jason was a pleasure!
Before Apts.jp I was genuinely wondering if I'd made the right decision moving to Tokyo... the renting market is fierce, especially for foreign people with only basic Japanese. I met a few other agents and saw many apartments prior to Apts.jp with zero success.
Meeting Yujin from Apts.jp, he showed me a decent place, we spoke about what I liked about it and what I didn't, and he came back the next week with 3 places I absolutely loved. The difference in the apartment quality was night and day. Not only is my apartment a truly great find in Tokyo, the attention to detail before and after I moved in was second to none. No question felt too small or too big, they were beyond professional, trustworthy and dependable from start to finish.
I had a great experience with Apts.jp and Jason, he was spot-on with the house recommendations, and they met our needs accordingly.
He was very clear with the instructions and helped us handle any unexpected situations.
He has been very kind and I’ve had no problems reaching out to him.
The application and move-in processes were smooth, and although some things got in the way, he and the company have always been happy to help.
They know how to treat you as a person, understand and consider delicated situations.
I sincerely recommend Jason’s and Apts.jp's services for anyone looking for a home in Japan.
I highly recommend Apts.jp to any ex-pat looking to rent a property in Tokyo. As a non-Japanese speaker, renting in Japan is an intimidating, frustrating and confusing experience. My agent Jason handled everything. He was very quick to introduce good properties in my range and he really understood what I was looking for. He was always easy to contact and quick to answer my questions, he made the entire process pretty effortless! I’m very busy with my work so this was exactly the service I needed. What impressed me the most was his efforts to help me transition from my previous apartment. He handled the handover, all of my utilities and helped with internet connection etc. We’ve also kept in touch since I moved in to answer my stupid questions! I couldn’t recommend these guys highly enough.
