Their service is just not seen in the Japanese real estate world and I would have been happy to have paid double for what was such a smooth and pleasant experience.
I recently had the pleasure of selling my home in Kobe with Rica and her team at Core 8. I could not give a more heartfelt and sincere recommendation. My situation was full of all sorts of idiosyncratic details, buyer complications, doing business across international borders, and everything possible that would bog down a real estate sale. Other real estate companies, even ones I had a long relationship with, did not have the time nor the bother to assist me. Rica at CORE 8 immediately had a can-do approach, and broke down what was a very complicated transaction into simple, manageable steps for both me and the buyer. In my 15 years in Japan, through both home ownership and the rental for my small business, I have dealt with a large amount of real estate companies and their agents. Rica has them all beat, in every aspect. She was friendly, prompt, capable, and always available. Their service is just not seen in the Japanese real estate world and I would have been happy to have paid double for what was such a smooth and pleasant experience. 5/5 stars!
