Akiko Miyamoto and her team (Nihongo-de-Columbus.com) specializes in investment properties and relocation of Japanese expatriates. Japanese executives are typically assigned on a five-year job in the U.S. Due to the company policy, they are not allowed to purchase a house. That creates high demand in rental properties. Akiko connects those long term tenants with homes for sale and deliver such investment opportunities to local and international investors. Akiko was born and raised in Tokyo. Upon graduation from Waseda University, she founded a Tokyo based corporation and initially provided business communication training to foreign capital corporations such as Sumitomo 3M and GE Yokokawa Medical Systems. Her company later expanded into Japan market entry consultation and helped mainly North American companies. Upon arrival to Columbus in 2010, Akiko started a real estate investment company and a liaison service company connecting international students with American host families. She became a realtor in 2011. She actively connects real estate opportunities to the work by building her network.
