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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In many cases, using our services to appoint a new Body Corporate Management involves a substantial reduction in fees as well as better service and an all-round improvement in your experience. The differences our clients’ experience can be dramatic as demonstrated by one client who saved $145,000 per annum in fees.
"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."
