Hello,  Some of us are thinking of changing our Strata Manager and Guardian Strata has been suggested.  Does anyone have an opinion on this company, good or bad?  Thanks, Jan

For a variety of reasons – most of them legal – we try to avoid naming names on this website.  Also there is always the opportunity for either a disgruntled client or rival to trash a reputation unfairly, or for a business to ask Dorothy Dixers (closely followed by a torrent of supportive posts).

So please pass on your comments to newlsie via PM (personal message).  It’s the button with the little envelope, above right on the panel with their post in it. 

Both negative and positive posts that are sent directly to the Forum will be deleted.

As a general comment (I know nothing about the particular company mentioned in the original post – If you do, see JT’s comment), I’d say the experience one has with any particular company has a lot to do with the particular individual manager assigned to you.

It’s a bit like being in school. Overall a school might be pretty good but your particular teacher is not. Or vice-versa, you might have a brilliant teacher in a school that is otherwise undistinguished.

I agree with Sir Humphrey.  It can very much depend on the SM.

I’ve been involved with countless strata managers in several states and many strata schemes over the past 37 years.

Some of my best SMs were not all that strata savvy.  But they did know how to be good managers and that’s certainly a very worthwhile credential.   For strata issues that went beyond their strata experience, they consulted with more experienced SMs.

The best SMs are of course those that understand both management and strata.
