Ken Arbour

Management Consultant
Hello, I’m Ken Arbour, one of the founders and the Management Consultant of Century 21 SKY Realty, and I would like to introduce you to finest group of professionals in Tokyo-my staff. O.K., I’m biased, but once you get to know us, I’m sure you’ll agree. First, let me say a little about myself. I established Century 21 SKY Realty in 1985 with two friends whose first initials represent the S and Y in SKY. Then a lady entered the picture. My wife, Noriko Kagami, and we took over the business in 1989, and have since been working to build it into a successful enterprise. Nonetheless, we found time to start a family, and we now have three beautiful daughters. I’m Canadian, and I came to Japan in 1982 while working with the Canadian Forest Industry. I studied Asian History at McGill University and earned a Masters of Urban Planning at the University of British Columbia.

Noriko Kagami has recently taken over the presidency, she is my wife, the mother of my three daughters and an excellent swimmer who held the 100-meter freestyle record at Yamanashi Prefecture High School for many years. Even more important, for our business, Noriko has earned Century 21′s Centurion sales rank for a Japan record 17 times. She is well connected and very well respected in Tokyo’s real estate industry. Noriko graduated from Musashi Art University and worked as a fashion designer before getting into real estate, which seems like quite a long time ago. She loves to cook, and to stay in shape, she swims 2K every day.

Office Leasing and Commercial Sales Manager, Licensed Broker
What do you say about a man who negotiated the sale of a Tokyo office property worth ¥70 billon? I can’t say enough. Without a doubt Masa, as he is known in the office, is the key member of the SKY team. He concentrates on commercial office leasing and commercial property and luxury home sales.
In a previous life, Masa was the sales manager of a large automobile dealership in Miami. He also went to school in Florida, earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration form Palm Beach Atlantic University.

Sales Section Chief and Licensed Broker
Kiyomitsu, or “Mr. Personality” is easily our clients’ favorite agent. He focuses on residential leasing and is known to be very down to earth. Being well-liked helps when you’re as prodigious a networker as Kiyomitsu, He is said to know every agent and every property in the market.
But I don’t understand how I ever hired a Hanshin Tigers fan (Go Giants, Go!)
