We work with vetted trades to ensure your building is not only safe, but also an enjoyable place to live in.

Our compliance team is here to help at every step of the way. Jamesons can also review and ensure that you have the best suitable insurance for your building based on its requirements.
Regular meetings provide the community platform to openly voice concerns, address issues and discuss opportunities.
Our role as Strata Manager is to ensure that you make the most out of your meeting time by minimising disputes and facilitating empowering decision making. Better communication, better community.

Contract management has a tendency to be extremely complex with lots of small details and jargon which makes filing, negotiating and updating contracts not only time consuming but very technical.
Of course it plays a vital role in day-to-day property management, which is why our Strata managers can handle contracts on your behalf to protect your interests.
