“Such a refreshing change. Our 9 Units have recently engaged Strata North with our overall management. From the very beginning we have been impressed by their professionalism and attention to detail. Chad has two very capable managers in James and Laura who have picked up the pieces from our previous manager and restored our faith in Strata Management. I would absolutely recommend Strata North to any clients searching for piece of mind in the security and direction of their complex.”

“Our Owners Corporation chose to transfer our Strata Management to Strata North some years ago. This was a wise decision resulting in staff promptly responding to inquiries and efficiently acting on requests made. When advice has been sought, Mandy Curran has provided clear, concise information and suggestions of how to deal with complexities as they arise. Mandy’s expertise, complemented by her warm, friendly manner has had the effect of gradually educating myself and our owners. This is vital given the plethora of regulations that govern strata living. I’d recommend Strata North to Strata complexes considering management options.”
Helen Cust

“It’s refreshing in this day and age to have personal service with a degree of on- line access to valuable data and information.

The team at SN is very supportive to us and does a very good job.”
Adrian Katschke

“Our family bought a small holiday unit in Yamba, NSW, a few years ago. As we all live in Sydney, we are very dependent on our strata management company in order to deal with the multiple issues that arise from “long distant ownership”. Jodi Troughton and the team from Strata North have provided absolutely excellent service in the time we have known them. And given some of the experiences we have had with other strata management companies, we have been so pleasantly surprised by Strata North’s knowledge, professional communications, promptness, thoroughness and not least their good humour. I thoroughly recommend this company.”
Lisa Paulsen

The team worked tirelessly at times sorting through the changeover from previous strata manager’s (2010) and the breathe of fresh air was felt almost immediately. The team at Strata North are all very confident in their daily tasks and assisted me in many difficult situations, that needed urgent attention and were always there. I would recommend anyone looking for solid strata management, to contact the team and see their complex run with the assistance of a knowledgeable and committed team of professional people.”
