Consulting services

The agile strata difference
We understand that in strata there are sometimes instances where you need a problem solved, need some expert support or need insight into a particular issue

As a committee member you feel like levies are too high, and you just don't have the time or energy to go through the finances. You're a strata manager that's swamped with email and just can't catch up with that demanding secretary. You're questioning what your strata manager actually does, and want to change, but can't break your contract.

These are times when you need help, you just don't know how or where to get it.
Our consulting services are short term engagements to help you get back on track.
Strata consulting

Strata is a confusing and complex domain, it's breadth and depth can surprise even the most astute investor. With so many different people participating in a strata scheme with differing accountability and objectives, it's easy to get lost in the detail. Small maintenance problems snowball into special levies. Residents are frustrated. Committees are arguing over priorities. Neighbourly trust is broken and communities are destroyed. Our consulting services are designed to solve these problems quickly, saving you pain and heartache long term. As a part of our commitment to collaboration, action and building trust, we've brought this unique offering to the industry to help strata communities everywhere.

What we consult on

We work with strata schemes to implement projects, establish clear processes, support in transitioning to self-managed arrangements, move plans to being debt-free, perform asset and financial audits, facilitate meetings, resolve disputes, and improve environmental impact. We also work developers looking to transition ownership to the new owners corporation. With strata managers and building managers, we primarily support in establishing digital technology, workflows and supplement existing resources where necessary.

Who we work with

We primarily work with strata committees, the office holders within a strata plan and sometimes the broader owners corporation. From time to time we work with strata mangers and building managers. In the property and construction industry we consult with property developers, builders, real estate agents, and property managers.
Our engagements, by design, are time limited to achieve a specific outcome within a particular budget.
