Irvine, Calif.

Global Estate Link, led by Managing Director Atsuko Yube, specializes in various properties, specifically working with international clients.
“I was drawn to Sperry Commercial because of their great reputation. They have a very recognizable brand,” said Yube. “Sperry Commercial gives me a broad platform and network within the U.S., as well as when I’m connecting my business overseas.”
“My main focus is working with investors from Japan,” Yube added. “I partner with other brokers who are focused on properties such as multi-unit, hospitality, retail, etc., and am able to connect my international clients with the resources they need.”
Beginning in 1998, Atsuko Yube became a licensed mortgage originator with extensive knowledge of lending in both wholesale and retail platforms. She obtained her broker’s license in 2003. After working at various mortgage brokererage firms, Atsuko opened Capital Lending Network, Inc. in 2006. She originated more than 100 transactions with over $100 million in funded volume annually in the wholesale arena . In 2010, her company merged with Wells Fargo Private Mortgage Banking and in less than three months, Atsuko was in the top 10 percent in funded volume. In 2011, she returned to wholesale origination. Currently, her focus is in real estate consulting and sales.
In 2013, Atsuko found a new passion in her real estate career after a successful AREAA trade mission to Japan. Her path to becoming an international real estate expert specialized in the US-Japan market began in 2014 with AREAA Global and led her to opening her own brokerage in 2015, Global Estate Link Inc. With growing needs in commercial real estate, she joined Sperry Commercial Global Affiliates as an associate broker and became an independent affiliate in 2019. Atsuko is a member of the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA). She currently serves as the National Secretary and will serve as the National Treasurer for 2020.
