Commercial Real Estate

Our commercial division was established in 1990 when we purchased several office buildings in Washington D. C. and New York for investment. The purpose of the division was geared to support and assist Japanese investing in US real estate.

Throughout the daily operation and management of our own investment portfolio and Japanese investment, our division has established and built relationships with regional real estate firms, management firms and construction entities. Based on our management of portfolio experiences, we have been providing firms with services such as brokerage and consulting for investing in US real estate and establishing investment programs. Also, we have been providing assistance to investors with coordinating and arranging for various financial transactions.
