In Japan, it has become easier for foreigners to buy apartments or apartment buildings for investment, however, as an investor of apartment buildings, it is extremely difficult to find someone that you can trust to manage the buildings in a transparent way so that you can maximize your return.
My previous property managers were able to speak some English but did not have any sense of urgency or ability to understand how we could maximize the ROI of my property. They would take days/weeks to communicate with the local agency and myself when people moved out of the building and I used to have rooms empty for months before any action was taken. After moving my property management to Axios (Tsuyoshi), the results have been great, my costs have drastically decreased and over 95% of my units have been filled over the years, which has resulted in a much better ROI.
If you are looking for a trustworthy partner to manage your real estate and maximize your returns with a transparent process, then I would highly suggest working with Axios Management.
