The Strata HQ Story
Independently owned and operated, we’re a strata management consultancy that services residential, commercial and developer strata schemes in Sydney’s Lower North Shore.
Our business was formed in 2012, by successful Sydney real estate agent, Daniel Dekell. Daniel had long paid witness to the management frustrations of strata property owners. He found that many were tired of the revolving door of strata managers and the constant variation in service. He felt they deserved better.
It was clear that owners sought a long-term partnership with their strata manager. They wanted someone with experience and maturity in their approach. At Strata HQ, Daniel’s no-nonsense business style has created a strata management service that is simpler, puts people first and gets things done.
How we're different
Many clients come to us seeking better service over their existing strata agent. We know it can be worrying when every time you contact your strata manager, you wonder if you’ll be charged for every little thing they do. You need up-front disclosure of all costs, so there are no nasty surprises when you receive your account.
We’re completely transparent about the structure of our earnings. We offer a complete fee review as part of the executive committee’s due diligence before we quote. This means you can be clearly informed of the comparative costs you currently pay. Put simply, you’ll understand what you’ll pay and when you’ll pay it.
At Strata HQ, we charge a single management fee that is inclusive, transparent and fair. We don’t retain any insurance commissions (or any other type of commission). Respect and service are at the core of our business, which means we’re responsive to your needs and deliver on our word.
