Testimonials

The demands on strata managers to service Owners Corporations needs and legislative requirements has increased exponentially requiring the diligence and dedication of professional strata managers. Bonded Strata Management has stepped up to the plate and proven worthy of meeting the modern-day challenges. It is always good to receive our clients’ positive feedback as it is an encouragement to us, and we share with you some testimonials from valued clients.

 

"Bonded Strata Management has looked after our strata for over fifteen years. Desi Fletcher, the Managing Director, is extremely professional, knowledgeable and personable . Desi and Paul Fletcher, and Fran Hodder, to name a few of the team,  are always ready to assist with any problems or concerns. All phone calls are returned and emails responded to. They also have a very good portfolio of trade professionals. We previously had two Stata companies managing our property, which had to be dismissed, as they were extremely incompetent and dismissive. When I found Bonded Strata I was relieved to find an honest company to deal with and haven’t looked back since."

"Paul and the team are truly professional and diligent in their service. They look at all the requirements of the strata carefully in consultation with owners and work in partnership to get sustainable outcomes. They also communicate proactively with residents."

"We don’t have the time or the expertise to do all the things that need to be done to run a strata properly. Getting quotes, organising tradespeople, preparing budgets, paying bills, sending out correspondence and so on. That’s why we’ve been very glad to have the team at Bonded Strata Management working with us. They are responsive, they are practical, they are tactful, they have the information we need, and they support the committee extremely well – including in chairing what can sometimes be difficult strata meetings, where contentious issues have to be discussed or where difficult long-range decisions have to be made. Bonded have been a terrific assistance in making sure that we run our strata efficiently and that we meet all our legal and financial obligations. I thoroughly recommend their services."

"I have no hesitation in highly recommending Bonded Strata Management as an ideal management solution, based on over six years ongoing experience in retaining them as strata agents for our apartment building. After ongoing service issues with our previous agent we undertook careful research in commissioning the best strata manager that we could. Bonded Strata Management was then appointed at a time when we were facing not only the normal processing of strata matters but also some specific and very challenging management issues.

The Bonded team proved fantastic in facilitating some highly professional expert advice around:
• extensive repairs of building defects
• extensive repairs as a result of an unexpected fire audit
• negotiation with Big Corp, the state governmental insurance body
• commencement of legal action to recover insurance costs

The issues involved were highly complex and potentially time-consuming. Our whole executive team was highly impressed at how Bonded provided considered advice and took supportive action that really took the hassle out of the experience for our committee and residents.

Beyond this, Bonded Strata Management has also proved highly effective in arranging the following services on an ongoing basis:
• annual general meetings
• advice on prudent cost management
• the coherent development of a feasible and manageable sinking fund
• efficient handling of queries and issues arising from owners and renters within the building

Our team has always found the staff efficient, friendly and courteous.  The principal, Desi Fletcher, has been a fantastic strata manager and her experience and advice has been invaluable. The team at Bonded are always accessible and extremely helpful and I have no hesitation at all in recommending Bonded Strata Management most highly."

Personally I have found the advice and support offered to me as the Chair of the Executive Committee invaluable and I have no hesitation in recommending Bonded Strata."
