What are some of the advantages of using Platinum Ltd and the consulting services we bring?
As opposed to the large Japanese real estate firms we act as YOUR advocate, looking after your best interests. You are providing us with the business opportunity so we want your interests to be at the forefront of any transaction which takes place. We negotiate not only prices but conditions and do not steer our clients to certain properties which many brokerages do because they are either looking after the interests of property owners represented by them and/or only want to work on deals which close very quickly.
Our company is principally staffed with bicultural and bilingual professionals who grew up in the west but who have spent a considerable number of years in Japan. Our clients utilize us because they feel comfortable with our communication skills liasing between Japanese property owners and western/Asian buyers as well as our business acumen. Let us show you the advantages of utilizing our firm.
