Selecting an Owners Corporation Manager

There are a number of important things to look for in your Strata Manager. Firstly, make sure they are a good communicator. Clear, streamlined communication means most requests can be dealt with in an easy and painless manner.

We have extensive experience ranging from the smallest Owners Corporations of 3 or 4, through to extensive 400+ apartment buildings, many with multiple Owners Corporations, and 1,500 lot residential estates.

Another important thing to look for in your new Strata Manager is their approach to service. At Iconic Strata, we understand that Owners Corporations value their time and assets, that’s why we strive to offer you the best possible service.

We often get asked by committee members what they should look for when reviewing a new owners corporation manager to manage their property. We believe that, first and foremost, it’s the way the manager commits to serving your committee, but that seemed too simplistic, so we put together a checklist for you, and even gave it a trendy title;
