FUKUOKA DAY

まず、福岡DAYは、やはり日本人好きの方が多かったと思います。そのため、日本建築に興味がある人が多くいろいろと畳のことを聞かれたり、日本から出張でオークランドに来たのかと聞かれる場面も多々あった。割合的には中国人6割とその他4割という構成だろうか。
アンケート用紙をもらえたのは1件だったが、多くの人がカタログをもってかえっていたりしたので、かなり反響があった。

MOON FESTIVAL

初めて、単独で中国人のお祭りに参加した。
午後3時以降からは雨になりピークは3時間しかなかったが、
そんな中でも、8件のアンケート用紙をいただく。
半分は新築案件希望。

2件は、ビルディングコンセントがあるのですぐにでも始めたいという案件だった。
また、場所も半分はノースとなっており、ジャパンホームズはノースの案件に人気がある。
こちらはむしろ、アンケート以外での後日連絡は望めないが十分な数の案件は集まった。
みな、いきなり、「平米いくらだ?」と切り出し、昨日の日系のイベントとのやり取りの違いに驚いた。
これがビジネスを成功させている華僑のスピードなのかと感心した。

今現在、中国ラジオやWTVで広告を流していること、また、
ジャパンDAY、FBを通して、
ジャパンホームズをすでに知っているよという声も聞き、認知度が出始めている。
今後も、認知度を上げていき、
より多くのお客様にAffordable and Comfortable の住宅提供を心掛けていきます。

ご協力していただいた皆さま、いろいろと2日間続けての文化祭楽しかったですね。
ありがとうございました。


 

There were two big events on last Sunday: one is Fukuoka Day at the Town Hall in the city, which is to celebrate the friendly relationship between Fukuoka in Japan and Auckland; the other is Chinese Moon Festival to celebrate the autumn full-moon (in the Chinese calendar) in Henderson. Both events gathered lots of visitors.

 

FUKUOKA DAY

There were lots of visitors who likes Japan and the Japanese culture so at Japan Homes booth many people asked us about Japanese architecture and Tatami mats, and also some asked if we came from Japan on a business trip. We felt like around 60% of the visitors were Chinese.

Only a person completed our questionnaire sheet for free consulting, however, many people took our company pamphlets so we had some enquiries after.

MOON FESTIVAL

It was the first time for Japan Homes to enter a Chinese event.

Although it was raining many people visited out booth and completed the questionnaire sheets. Half of these were about building new homes and were from Northshore. Somehow, we attract more Northshore people than the other areas.

The two of them had building consent already for their new homes and wanted to begin construction ASAP.

We met many potential clients.

The difference we felt between these events was that in Moon Festival people directly asked us the most important thing to know. Some quickly asked how much is the new home build cost / m2 for the first time we spoked to them. I thought that this quickness and direct communication was the key to the overseas Chinese’s successful business.

We have ad on the Chinese radio and WTV and joined Japan Day before so more and more people get to know us. We try to increase our presence more in Auckland to provide more people with our Comfortable and Affordable homes.

We appreciate all supports from everyone and really enjoyed these events.

 

Thank a lot!!

Born in Japan in 1973. At University I learned Japanese History.

After graduation, I worked at a major Dental material company as a top salesman. In 2002 I firstly set my foot on land in New Zealand, and have started to engage in NZ Construction firm since 2004. From the 8 years' experiences at construction sites and sales experiences in Japan, I devote myself to satisfy customers from consultation to construction and after care services.

Within the first 4 years after the foundation, half of Japan Homes' customers were similar ages of mine. So that their life environment such as a number of children were also similar to mine therefore I was able to understand the customers' situations and wants more. Meanwhile there are also many customers of my father's generation, which is always appreciated because I can learn lots of good things from them.

We try our best to provide services that you satisfy, such as schedule, quality and after care service.

"I can trust you with any projects." "You are the man who I can rely on when I am in trouble." I enjoy working to get these words more times and to create as more smiles as possible.
