What others have to say:

“As a business owner/operator our company growth until now, has been largely attributed to word-of-mouth and referrals from existing clientele. We had a desire to expand our business in the strata property space and although we had experience and dealings with bodies corporate, we were committed to keeping on top of any changes to (building compliance) legislation relating specifically to our service field and also to gain an understanding of the Body Corporate & Community Management Act, to better assist our strata clients.

After a chance conversation with Mr Ralph Martell of (Newstead) “London Woolstore Apartments”, I was introduced to Stephanie Yun of “Strata Mastery”. From the get-go, Stephanie helped put us on the right path. We attended a series of half-day training sessions (which ranged from beginners through to advance levels) and Stephanie assisted us to gain an insight into the inner workings and legislative obligations of bodies corporate. I was genuinely impressed to find that Stephanie continued to provide support long after workshops were held. In fact, I feel Stephanie went out of her way to introduce the team to other like-minded, compliance conscious committee members, building managers, strata managers and property developers who shared our values.

It is my belief that if you are a business operator looking for a point of difference and industry recognition, you couldn’t go past attending Strata Mastery’s – “Body Corporate Best Practice” and “ABMA Code” short (4-hour) courses. Programs are affordable for any start-up business. Stephanie succeeds in making an otherwise clinical and complex subject, interesting, enjoyable and very easy to digest! The courses, in my view, are essential for any service contractor/business looking to expand or gain professional recognition within the body corporate market. Thank-you Stephanie!”
