Since its founding, the Samty Group has grown from an asset-holding developer based in the Kansai region into a nationwide integrated real estate group. Currently, we engage in two core businesses. The first is the real estate business, involving the planning, development, revitalization, and sales of high-quality real estate assets under the proprietary S-RESIDENCE series of condominiums for rental as well as the planning, development and sales of family-geared condominiums for purchase or investment. Second is the real estate leasing business, focused on owning a diverse range of assets for rental, such as condominiums, office buildings or commercial facilities, and earning stable income streams. Other businesses include the operation of business hotels. Our head office is located in Osaka, and we maintain branch offices in Tokyo, Fukuoka and Sapporo, through which the entire Samty Group works together to develop real estate and acquire income property assets throughout Japan. In March 2016, the Samty Group opened a new branch office in Nagoya.

Real estate leasing business
The Samty Group owns condominium, office, commercial facility, hotel and parking lot buildings either in their entirety or through partial ownership, and leases these properties delete to individuals or corporate tenants. With the goal of increasing income, the Samty Group continues to acquire income properties located in major regional cities throughout Japan, mainly in the Kansai region, where its head office is located, as well as in Tokyo, Fukuoka and Sapporo, where its branch offices are located. In addition to the design division, the Samty Group’s real estate leasing division employs first-class registered architects to quickly turn around properties in terms of infrastructure improvements whenever tenant changes occur to boost asset value. These experiences and expertise are accumulated in-house for future reference.
In addition, the Samty Group leases condominiums from owners and subleases them to end tenants, while carrying out rent collection, contract management, and property management on behalf of the property owner.
Real estate business
The Samty Group markets real estate developed by the Group and income properties acquired from third parties to outside investors. One of the Samty Group’s best-known brands is the S-RESIDENCE series of condominiums for lease that are developed entirely in-house, from land acquisition to product planning, development and construction. For income properties developed or acquired, the Samty Group not only sources tenants but also utilize the expertise of the Group to remodel and upgrade properties to generate income throughout the ownership period and maximize the sales price at the end of the period. As of November 30, 2015, six (sales price ¥13.8 billion) of the 28 buildings (sales price ¥45.5 billion) Samty has sold since 2004 are now owned by listed J-REITs.

● S-RESIDENCE condominium brand developed by the Samty Group
S-RESIDENCE is a premium rentable condominium brand developed by the Samty Group since 2005. The lobbies of S-RESIDENCE properties feature luxurious natural stone and open atrium designs as well as indirect lighting and inner hallways similar to those of a luxury hotel. Furthermore, the bathroom area provides unique, stylish designs that are the ultimate in high-end finishes. These are the premium-grade design touches sought by single students and professionals, and they are known for their particularly high occupancy rate by female tenants. First-class registered architects are employed within the development division as a specialist team to deliver condominium properties that excel in livability, comfort and security. This ensures that specifications accurately meet the latest needs of residents, from design to construction project management.
Because their rent levels are set at a level similar to that of competing properties nearby, even with these high-end design touches, S-RESIDENCE series properties can be leased quickly and deliver powerful cost performance.
