Hi! I’m Zoe and I have been working in Japan’s real estate industry since 2008, and have been running my own fully licensed real estate brokerage in Tokyo since 2014.

Navigating Japan’s diverse, very opaque, and often archaic real estate industry requires extensive local knowledge and expertise – something I have gained through years of on-the-ground experience. 

I provide tailor-made consulting services and support to professional clients looking to further their understanding of the complexities of Japan’s real estate market. Think of me as your local liaison.
