I have been coming to this site since it started a few years ago and I have had some fantastic help from experts on the site, particularly lawyer, Daniel Russell.
How do we find a new strata manager? It is not an easy thing to do. We got those Stratamatch people in but we decided not to go with them because they wouldn't tell us which strata companies are associated with them.
I then rang Cindy who owns this site and she suggested I contact Strata Community Australia. When I finally got them after having to ring them three times to get the callback that never happened, they said in no uncertain terms that they could not help me. I got a very cold response as if I had asked a dirty question. "We don't refer any of our members. You will have to find someone yourself by ringing around."
How is that helping me as a lot owner and how is that helping their members with potential new business. Cindy suggested we get quotes from three strata companies who are members of SCA. When I told the woman at SCA that she said she had no idea who I was talking about and that Cindy had no right to be referring people to SCA.
None of it makes any sense to me. Anyone got a good strata manager who would do a good job with a large 300 lot building? Seems like the only place I will get some good advice is from you guys.
Thanks in advance.
