    The five (5) key fundamentals for us when assessing and vetting Owners Corporation Management Companies in Victoria:

    Strata Management Experience and Qualifications

    Strata Management is a specialised field despite the low legal barrier to entry. We only work with companies who have a proven track record, verified experience, and the right set of skills and systems to pass our rigorous selection process.

    Professional People and Professional Service

    Timely communication, prompt response, and anticipation of needs are fundamental to effective body corporate management. A simple high-level metric when assessing service is to look at the number of staff in the company compared with the number of lots and buildings managed by that company.

    Integrity, Solvency, and Values

    Buildings often accumulate substantial maintenance funds and involve sizeable annual spending budgets, so trust, solvency, and integrity are vital attributes of your body corporate management. One key indicator is the length of time your management team has been in operation.

    Systems & Processes

    Body Corporate management involves multiple owners’ and generates a high volume of transactions, so having proper software and fail-safe processes are essential. If your strata management operator is trying to run your body using property management software or Microsoft Excel, they are unlikely to deliver the service you need.

    Knowledge and Training

    The rules and regulations governing Owners Corporations in Victoria are complex and ever evolving. All reputable body corporate companies require staff to undertake continuous professional development and training programs which is another reason to ensure that the number of staff in the company is appropriate to the number of lots and buildings they manage.

    Changing Management Companies can be risky.

    The Best Body Corporate Management in Melbourne

    Strata Management Consultants was incorporated in 2014 because we saw a need for a service to help Body Corporates (Owners’ Corporations) select experienced managers and avoid the (increasingly common) body corporate management disaster scenarios. As active body corporate managers in Melbourne we were being called on increasingly to resolve mismanagement issues, so we set out to create a resource of pre-qualified and vetted body corporate managers.
    What could have been very stressful and time consuming was handled in an efficient and professional manner.”

      For registered & professional OC Management Companies in Victoria:
      We are responsible for the growth of Melbourne's best and most trusted OC management brands.
      The strata and owners corporation management industry in Victoria has more than doubled in the past two decades (vs the 40 years prior) and all our trusted Business Partners have been outpacing the wider industry growth.

      "We are a boutique strata management company in Melbourne. For the first 20 years of our business, the growth was sluggish and was mainly via client referral. We did not have the required resources to engage a business development manager.

      It was frustrating to see other companies expanding fast in the industry whilst we provide a much better service.

      We were lucky to get to know David in 2016. Soon after joining forces with David / Strata Management Consultants, our business grew considerably in a matter of a few months. Over the years, our portfolio quadrupled. We cannot thank David and his team enough. Apart from the usual things David does for us, he also offers generous assistance with business management which we also greatly appreciate."
