Kazuhiro Otsubo
Licensed Real Estate Agent, Chief

Kazuhiro used to live in the U.S. for his graduate studies and really enjoyed life over there by renting a big house with his friends. On the other hand, after coming back from the U.S., he felt that the quality of living in Japan was not so attractive, especially in the rental housing market. As he was interested in the business field of directly communicating with customers/clients, he pursued his career mainly in the Real Estate business and joined Plaza Homes in 2016. Kazuhiro has been working with rental units for many expats at Plaza Homes with a motto to provide service from the client’s point of view.
