Meet our Expert: Noriko Hattori | Director & Head, Valuation & Advisory Services

Hattorisan 2

I have tackled a variety of issues at Colliers and feel that it leads to my personal growth on a daily basis.

Meet Noriko Hattori, who has been in the real estate industry for more than 15 years and leads the division as head of Valuation & Advisory Services in Japan, while enjoying traveling in her off time.

Why do you work at Colliers?

After passing the real estate appraiser examination, I spent 15 years working for two foreign real estate companies in the appraisal business. At both companies, I gained experience in the valuation of real estate for a variety of uses, including offices, residences, logistics facilities, commercial facilities, hotels, and land clearing and development, and was able to develop my career as an appraiser. While engaged in daily practice as a senior appraiser, I developed a desire to be involved in the expansion of the division's business by utilizing my experience and knowledge. It was at this time that I discovered Colliers. Colliers was expanding the Valuation & Advisory Services business, so I saw this as a great opportunity to join the company.
Although I often face difficulties in my first experience, I tackle challenges with the cooperation of my supervisors, subordinates, and members of other departments, and I feel that it leads to my personal growth on a daily basis.

What are your passions outside of your work at Colliers?
I love to travel. It allows me to get away from the hustle and bustle of my daily life and refresh and energize myself for work.I personally value the on/off switch very much in order to work efficiently. I enjoy relaxing in nearby hotels or ryokans. I often conduct on-site surveys of hotels for my work, so when I enter a guest room, I tend to take photographs and check it out.
