Mitsui Real Estate Sales announced a new venture with Beijing Homelink Real Estate Service Brokerage, the biggest property agency in Beijing, to offer brokerage services for wealthy Chinese looking to purchase apartments in Japan.
Mitsui is also considering starting a specialized property consulting service in Beijing in 2011.
Mitsui first began working together with Beijing Homelink and Taiga Trading in 2009. The main point of the business partnership between the three companies was to refer wealthy Chinese investors and introduce second-hand Japanese apartments.
Sales goals have not been set for the first year of the tie-up as the companies plan to start by researching client needs.
