“At the age of 79, he acquired the qualification of a real estate broker (real estate broker), and at the age of 80, he started a real estate company.”
87 years old. Before starting her own business at the age of 80, she was a full-time housewife who supported her husband, who was a teacher, and raised one boy and one girl.
When Wada was 77, she left her husband at her home after 10 years of nursing care. Her tense threads suddenly snapped, and she didn’t feel like doing anything, and she spent her days at home sleeping.
It is said that Kyoko’s granddaughter, Masatoshi, couldn’t stand looking at her and suggested that she should study something she likes.
That’s when she came up with the idea of studying “house construction.” Originally she was interested in houses, so much that she wanted to be a carpenter. When she found a book on home construction at a bookstore and opened it, she found it interesting and read it all at once. It seems that the real estate is a national qualification, and if you study aside from whether you work or not, you should limit it to real estate.
At the recommendation of her daughter, she enrolled in a vocational school in Suidobashi, Tokyo, in order to obtain her real estate license. The only requirement for her to qualify as a real estate agent is that she must have Japanese nationality. She has no age limit. For the next six months, I sat down with her classmates in their twenties and studied hard.
She studied hard for the real estate exam for a year, and at the age of 79, she passed the real estate qualification exam with a pass rate of about 16%. She was commended by a vocational school as the oldest female successful homebuilder.
At the age of 80, she decided to work for a real estate company, and she wrote her resume for the first time in her life. She said, “Which company will hire an 80-year-old grandmother? Her work history can only be written as ‘housewife for 55 years. did.

Kyoko Wada Real Estate Co., Ltd.
おは！ 9月20日だ！#アラフィフ も輝くよ！
— つなワタリ🔥挑戦 ✕ 強み発揮🔥 “ 小二病 ”のプロ無謀家 (@27watari) September 19, 2020
In 2010, at the age of 80, established “Kyoko Wada Real Estate Co., Ltd.”. He became the president and representative director in his first year as a member of society. His grandson Masatoshi, who later worked for an IT company, also obtained a real estate license. We got a reliable partner named Masatoshi and started running the business together.
Mr. Wada has moved seven times in the past and has had a defective home. Every time I was deceived by unscrupulous real estate and was annoyed by defective housing. I decided to specialize in buying and selling real estate because I wanted to make use of my bitter experiences in finding homes for my clients.
Although it was difficult to get a contract for the first two years after opening, we continued to provide services from the customer’s point of view, and in the fifth year, we achieved annual sales of 500 million yen. Gradually, Mr. Wada’s way of life began to be featured on TV and in magazines, and customers started pouring in, saying, “I want Mr. Wada to find a property for me.”
Characteristics of Kyoko Wada Real Estate
1) Do a thorough investigation
For customers who purchase a house, we will conduct a survey of the purchase property and present its advantages and disadvantages. As for the disadvantages, President Kyoko Wada investigated based on her experience of knowing all the points of defective properties.
For example, check with your feet whether the floor of the property is even slightly tilted, whether there is an odor in the kitchen or other water areas, whether there are any defects in the drains, and check under the floor.
And the radio wave confirmation of the smartphone is also carried out. The quality of the radio wave condition of the 4G antenna display is an important item when it comes to living. In addition, after surveying in the daytime, we also visit the property at night to check the surrounding conditions and the degree of danger for women walking alone.
2) No brokerage fee
We do not charge a brokerage fee from our customers.
A real estate agent receives 3% as a “brokerage fee” from both the seller and the buyer.
For a 30 million yen house, 900,000 yen x 2 = 1,800,000 yen, but Mr. Wada thought that it would be fine as long as the customer was happy and he himself lived a normal life. We aim to be the world’s friendliest company.
If the seller sells the property, it will generate income and make money, but even if the buyer takes out a loan and finally obtains the property, monthly payments will be troublesome, so he does not take a “brokerage fee” from the buyer.
3) Open 24 hours
I always have my smartphone in the bath, and I sleep for about 3 hours.
From morning to evening, customer correspondence and property survey. I work on my computer at night.
4) QUO card worth 500 yen
“Ashiro” is a sign of gratitude for the kindness you have taken to visit us.
Personality is outdone.
Well, what was Wada’s life up to the age of 78?
Kyoko Wada’s life
Wada contracted tuberculosis before marriage and was told by a doctor that she would never have children. Her husband knew it and got married. She intends to live her childless life as a married couple, but fortunately she is blessed with a boy and a girl.
When she was 65 years old, her husband was sick and repeatedly in and out of the hospital, and she was grateful to take care of him. But when she died, her life ended…
In the 60 years since she started her business, she has not had the opportunity to use her name as “Mr. ◯◯’s wife” or “Mr. ◯◯’s mother”. Even embarrassed.
She has no work experience, but it is a fresh experience for her to be suspicious of customers and to be harassed by customers in real estate sales. And she gradually becomes able to speak in public and transforms day by day.
Wada says she’s always sorry that she survived the war.
In her interview, she said, “I have no regrets in my youth.” She regrets nothing in her life. I would be happy if everyone could see that no matter how old she is, people can change so much,” she said.
Wada says she started living her own life at 79. First of all, she is very surprised that two people, who had only been housewives until then, created a real estate company with annual sales of 500 million yen.
Indeed, her life is about to begin!
Even if we don’t start a business, we want to use it as a reference for those of us who will definitely become grandpas and grandmas.
