East London has seen dramatic regeneration over the last few years, and the area around Shoreditch has been recently transformed, from a largely forgotten backwater into a trendy destination packed with bars, cafes and restaurants and now one of the most exciting areas in London for young professionals to live and work.  Shoreditch estate agent Benham & Reeves is based at the stunning new 250 City Road development, right in the heart of this vibrant area, close to the City and the tech hub around Old Street roundabout as well as the many small businesses springing up across East London.  

Our on-site branch at 250 City Road EC1 offers a full range of property sales, lettings and property management services to investors who have been buying property in this area, taking advantage of the surge in rental demand from professionals wishing to live and work here.   Top of renters’ wish list?  A high spec home with excellent facilities within an easy commute of their workplace.  And 250 City Road certainly meets the brief.  Our team of property specialists offer clients unrivalled property expertise, helping investors buy, rent out and manage their property portfolios, from studio flats to luxurious penthouse apartments.

Contact our lettings team

Where in London do you live? I live in Richmond.

Tell me something about your career: After several years working in recruitment in Tokyo, I moved to the UK in 2001 to study for a Masters degree.  After graduating, I began my career in the property industry, becoming a lettings negotiator for a Japanese-owned agency.  I progressed with the firm, working in central London and eventually managing six branches.

What skills do you bring to your role? I have extensive experience of the corporate lettings market in London, in particular working with Japanese corporate clients.   I am also a member of ARLA Propertymark.  This expertise is invaluable in my role heading the Japanese desk of Benham and Reeves dedicated corporate services department.

What do you enjoy doing outside work? I love running in Richmond Park and usually try and do a 12k run at the weekend.
Where in London do you live? I’m currently living in the Willesden area.

What skills do you bring to your role? I used to teach English at a school in Japan and Japanese to foreign students, so I gained good customer-facing experience and sharpened my linguistic skills. With communication and negotiating proficiency, my main role is to provide Japanese tenants and our global landlords with the best mutual housing contract that suits both parties. I have developed good working relationships with many companies, mostly curated through my own network. My instincts help me to meet the needs of our Japanese corporate tenants who I enjoy helping. It is most important to me that I give 100 percent to everyone.

What do you like to do outside work? You will find me in a London pub watching the Premier League matches over a glass of beer and I like to play football when I have time. I also enjoy travelling and have visited 20 countries, mainly in Asia and Europe.
What do you like most about working on the Japan Desk? I enjoy the challenges of working in a cross-cultural environment which includes liaison with landlords based in the UK, Japan and various overseas countries.

Tell me about your property career so far and what are your key skills? I previously worked in the sales department of a Japanese advertising company where I learned about building strong customer relations through effective communication skills. I really value the strong team ethic of the Japan Desk and like to maintain the high level of customer service that Japanese corporate tenants routinely expect.

What are your passions outside work and how do you relax? I have the biggest passion for food and travelling whenever I can.
Which part of London do you live in? I am living near Paddington which is very handy for getting in and out of central London.

What do you like most about helping on the Japan Desk and working with properties? I am fluent in English and Japanese so I can communicate with Japanese tenants clearly which our tenants value. The UK way of living is different to living in Japan so I like helping tenants get settled into our rental properties so everything works out well for them and they enjoy their home while they are living here.

What do you like to do in your free time to relax? I enjoy café culture and exploring outside of London too, there is so much culture, beautiful landscapes and history to enjoy.

Where is your favourite part of London? I was brought up in Islington so would have to choose Angel and surrounding areas such as the City and Shoreditch.

Tell us a little about your career I have been working within the property industry for 15 plus years, covering several sales sectors with specialism in new build sales. Since joining Benham and Reeves as an  investment consultant, I have progressed to sales manager of new homes and resale properties in residential developments, working closely with our international offices and a growing roll of domestic and international investor clients.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself I love to run and have run half marathons and marathons in the past.
What is your favourite part of London? Covent Garden for its buzz, the market and stunning architecture, it’s such a hidden gem.

What key skills do you bring to your role at B&R? I have worked in the property industry for seven years, first as a reservations manager for serviced apartments and then with Benham and Reeves as a lettings administrator which has helped form the ground work for my current role assisting the salesforce. Efficiency is my watch-word and I like to reflect this in all my tasks. I have a keen eye for detail and also enjoy taking on new challenges.

What are your passions outside work for relaxation? I love catching up with family and friends and my other passions are dance and singing in a London choir.
