I decided to join Colliers because I am empowered to build on my experience and passion for real estate.
Meet Hisakazu Iso, a Capital Markets and Investment Services expert who leads his enterprising team with his 30 years of experience.
Why do you work at Colliers?
I work at Colliers because of the rate at which we are growing in Japan. Since Oggy (Ogasawara-san) took over as Managing Director and Chairman in 2020, our business in Japan has more than doubled and our capabilities are continuing to expand. Colliers is gaining more and more attention in the Japanese market as the fastest-growing global real estate services and investment management company in the world.
Having spent almost 30 years as an executive in charge of real estate at a trust bank in Japan, I decided to join Colliers because I am empowered to build on my experience and passion for real estate.
I also love the wonderful people I get to work with at Colliers who are talented, experienced, and enterprising.
What are your passions outside of your job at Colliers?
Home DIY is my biggest passion at the moment. Due to the pandemic, I have been spending much more time at home, and I see all kinds of things that I want to fix. I used to be a part-time carpenter when I was in college, so I have all the tools I need. I have remodeled a washstand, renovated a bathroom, installed a TV antenna, and recently re-laid tatami mats by myself.
The other thing I love to do is to play with my French bulldog, which is always with me while I am at home. He is super cute and adorable!
