Beautiful Stories, Hard Realities
Real estate agents/realtors are always holding seminars in Tokyo, Osaka and elsewhere, luring in amateur investors (for Japanese investors so far)
and telling them beautiful stories of how this person or that person got rich in the property market.
I never exaggerate such successes in my seminars, although of course they do exist.
Instead, I always tell the audience true stories from my experience and those of other clients and inexperienced investors, and in particular about the mistakes made.
