We feel the Strata Management service industry in BC is broken. Most strata property management companies in BC use a 3 tier system as their businesses model. This model incurs huge overhead.
Too many large companies run with large offices, have large expenses, have large management divisions, have large administration divisions, large management salaries and large dividends to their ownership and shareholders. Where does that leave individual property manager?
The individual property managers (IPM) assigned to your complex is the one person in the organization getting the smallest piece for the pie and is forced to take on a large portfolio of buildings, just to make a meager living. Herein lies the rub. Unfortunately, this amount of buildings is too many for the IPM to provide adequate service. If you were wondering why you rarely see your IPM, that's why. So where does that leave you, the client?
You are paying good money for an agreed upon service and are not receiving what you are paying for. We hear this everyday!
We have created a property management system that is DIFFERENT. Our system allows our managers to provide more hands on, face to face service. Regular site visits, working directly with council on both day to day and future plans. Helping council members understand their roles and responsibilities as council members. Working in a cooperative, transparent and friendly manner to develop strategies to save owners money where possible, to raise the asset value of the property, and run the business of the corporation efficiently are all part of our management philosophy.
