We had the pleasure to interview Jo Lodder, a founding partner of JNW Properties, SnowDog Village, SnowDog Chalets & Raku Ichi Residences. Today, we interview Jo Loddar on his experience of dealing with Covid, and how he carried the project through this difficult time. SnowDog Village is a completed property of 42 apartments that have had sustained buyer interest for a number of years. Jo also presides over 2 other projects in the planning and development stage such as the ski resort of Niseko, Japan. He and the company strive to give individuals the opportunity to purchase value-for-money ski properties.
In this episode, Jo talks about managing hospitality type properties, establishing an online presence, and tips for the real estate industry to persist in this new Covid norm. Hope you enjoy the show!
- managing hospitality type properties
- establishing an online presence
- tips for the real estate industry to persist in this new Covid norm
This episode is quite insightful. Unlike other Denzity Insights videos, this episode focused more on how real estate professionals adapt and continue doing business during the pandemic. We feel it is important to showcase the efforts Jo and his company had made to build an online presence, think outside the box and try new things – and inspiration for the industry as a whole to reconsider its reservations on digitization and digital marketing. In the next episode, we will go more in-depth on the projects Jo gets to deal with.

Milk Kobo Hokkaido is famous for its fresh produce, laid back farm life, and dairy farms – and Niseko is no different. Almost everything at Milk Kobo is made in-house with milk produced from their very own dairy farm. The store backs right onto the very farm where the milk used in all Milk Kobo desserts is produced. It can be a little hard to see the farm itself (due to the meters of snow that piles up across the fields), but if you’re driving along the road, you can occasionally spot the “Happy Holsteins” (cows) as they nibble away in the comfort of their very own heated farmhouse. http://www.skijapan.com/news-info/discover-milk-kobo
