About NTI

NTI’s client advisors and principals are all property owners, and are trained and experienced in relating to your unique requirements. We present you with the best that the market has to offer and represent you – at the highest professional standards – to your complete satisfaction.

After settlement is concluded, and if required, we will also handle ongoing management of your properties, collect your rental income (in case of investment properties) and pay your bills, as well as advise on the best decisions to be made when these are required – all under the same roof.

Please take advantage of our services from the comfort of your home or office. Our pre-quoted and fixed fees are extremely affordable, and are always clearly included in all purchase and income calculations, as published on this website and communicated directly to you.

A reliable partner

NTI is a registered, licensed and fully compliant Japanese company. As any such company, we are monitored, regulated, and report to national tax and legal authorities on a regular basis.

We are not real estate agents, developers, wholesalers, short-sales, flippers – nor are we associated with finance, mortgage, or foreclosure agencies of any sort. As buyers’ agents and proxies, NTI represents only YOU – the buyer – and YOUR interests. 

We will also provide legal and financial references upon request, and at no cost, from our local accountants and legal partners here in Japan. Providing complete and thorough documentation proves our identity, reliability, and accountability. Ask us for our Credibility Pack and receive this information today.
