Daiwa Living

Message from the President

In 2012, Daiwa Living, a rental housing management and operations company, marked the 24th anniversary of its establishment in 1989 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Daiwa House Industry. We continue to provide worthwhile services that reflect changing social needs while responding flexibly and positively to our customer’s requests and opinions regarding rental housing.
As of March 2012, the total number of housing units in our portfolio exceeded 296,000. We could not have maintained this significant level of growth without the overwhelming support of our customers.

In April 2012, Daiwa Living spun off its batch leasing business to “Daiwa Living Management,” which offers business management support for rental housing owners. This service enables Daiwa Living to focus on and specialize in rental housing management and operations. In addition, we plan to move forward as the unified business enterprise, Daiwa Living Companies, which consists of Daiwa Living, Daiwa Living Management and Daiwa Estate. Daiwa Estate is a real estate agency that specializes in tenant recruitment. Working together, we will continue to do our utmost to offer even higher quality services to customers by providing them with rental housing management and operational support. As we fully leverage our strength in the years ahead, we aim to become Japan’s No. 1 “total support company” in the area of rental housing management and operations by always striving to satisfy our customers, including home owners, tenants and business partners.

Japan experienced an unprecedented disaster in March 2011. The recovery of the stricken areas is an ongoing process. Furthermore, we cannot ignore the threat of economic stagnation caused by such social factors as Japan’s rapidly aging population and ongoing global financial uncertainty. We are also being confronted by a wide variety of issues in the rental housing industry that must be urgently addressed.

In light of the challenges posed by these circumstances, Daiwa Living is determined to realize its vision of becoming the most in-demand rental housing management and operations company in Japan. With this in mind, we work to provide the latest marketing services while taking on the challenge of entering new business fields.

Based on these concepts, we will make every effort to realize Daiwa House Group’s vision, “Co-Creating a Brighter Future,” to create safe and comfortable living environments for all our valued customers.
