Core8Eight — Realtors-of-choice by connoisseurs of luxury properties and international property investors

We Speak English
Let us help you create the luxurious lifestyle and investment portfolio that you deserve!

Hello, I am Rica Bradshaw, the founder and Managing Director of Core Eight, a real estate agency located in Kobe with luxury property listings throughout Japan.
Core Eight represents discerning clients and specializes in the purchase/sale and property investment and management of luxury residences and other exceptionally designed residential and commercial properties ranging from recently renovated bucolic traditional Japanese homes to exclusive, urban properties.

In my previous life’s work in Japan, Malaysia and the U.K. in fashion and as an apprentice to a Japanese landscape architect, in addition to 18 years as a realtor, I understand the importance and impact of design on a space; how the spiritual elements in traditional Japanese design and craftsmanship and the style and personality in contemporary urban design alone or fused together can create an inviting ambiance and enhance the human experience! We are passionate about helping you build-out and design your home so that it reflects you and your lifestyle.

At Core Eight, we are passionately committed to matching our clientele with exceptional properties that uniquely suit their lifestyle preferences or investment goals. We aim to create long-lasting relationships. You are never merely a “customer” to us!
