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 !

I am absolutely stoked with the outcome Jason and the team at Apts.jp delivered - they helped my wife and me secure a permanent apartment in Tokyo, which met all of our conditions, within only 3 days of arriving! Granted, there was a lot of work that was put into getting such an outcome, but Jason was there to guide us every step of the way. His pedantic attention to detail helped secure an apartment which was less than a 10 minute walk to everything you could ever need (metro stations, supermarkets, gyms, restaurants, post office, medical centre, etc), in a character-filled neighbourhood just outside of Central Tokyo. The biggest challenge was getting an apartment that not only ticked all of our boxes, but also allowed our dog, who is larger than the standard, acceptable size of 10 kg. Jason was forthcoming about this challenge when I first engaged him, but he came through. Thanks to Jason and the Apts.jp team, we can now rest easy in the comfort of our new home.
If you're looking for effective, concierge-calibre service from an outfit that knows how to navigate the nuances of Tokyo's real estate market, look no further than Apts.jp.
Thanks Jason and team!!
I was recommended Apts.jp by my company and I am so glad for that recommendation.
The service from Apts.jp was phenomenal. I am an Indian and couldn't speak Japanese at all, still the search for an apartment in Tokyo was
made effortless thanks to the amazing work by Jason Asato from Apts.jp. The houses recommended to me were in line with my requirements
and I was taken to visit those houses by Jason personally, at my convenience, working around my tight work schedule. I was even taken to visit
apartments late after work, early mornings, my lunch breaks and whenever I was free. Jason worked odd hours and tirelessly to ensure that I
got what I wanted. Thanks to him I got a prefect place, literally five minutes from my work at an incredible deal. They ensured that I was able to move
in to my place in less that a week after I visit and before the temporary accommodation offered by my company came to an end.
I am more than delighted by my experience with Apts.jp and would gladly recommend them to anyone who is apartment hunting in Tokyo.

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.
