  • In the past year, I have traveled throughout the world including to France, Italy, Spain, Russia, Hong Kong, Japan, China, Thailand and Abu Dhabbi. At each destination, I have leveraged the Sotheby's International Realty brand to develop a network of clients -- both buyers and sellers. I have helped dozens of international clients move to Manhattan and I teach seminars in Manhattan about buying and investing in NYC real estate.

  • The Manhattan luxury residential market can be a confusing challenge to foreign investors. I have successfully enabled international clients to comfortably move through the process of buying or selling and board package approval. I offer complete guidance from beginning to end and I can introduce legal, tax, mortgage and insurance professionals who speak your native language. My native language is Japanese. If you make an investment that requires management I can find an appropriate tenant, collect rent and make expense payments.
