PICA Group difference
PICA Group difference, where it all began…
From the very first time that a strata scheme was first set up in Australia, PICA Group has been by the side of homeowners and investors across New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.
Having been around since 1948, our purpose has remained – we are passionate about enhancing community living and continuously evolving to deliver harmony, liveability and certainty so that owners can enjoy their home and investment.
Our point of difference is how we do that. It comes down to providing individualised service to our customers and shining the spotlight on our people – because it’s our service excellence and our people that makes PICA Group different.
With so many strata providers out there, it can be hard to select the one that will give you the best service, that’s why we’re more than strata, we’re a community and offer a more wholistic and proactive approach.

Best practice management techniques
We work closely with government entities and industry bodies to develop legislation and best practices, including running our own strata management training programs. There’s also a comprehensive library of articles, guides, videos and other resources available on every strata matter you would want to know more about.
We help to increase the value of your property by focusing on sustainability and enhanced community living. We do this by supporting sustainability initiatives such as NABERS for Apartment Buildings and working to provide practical community living solutions such as energy savings programs we call CommunityUtilities. You can also visit our CommunityGreen webpage to see what else we are actively doing to make a difference.
Service excellence assured
We live by our service promise as set out in our Customer Service Charter and are contactable 24/7 whenever you need us. There’s no need to be dependent on your strata manager, we offer Customer Care Centre support – so there’s always back-up support when needed. And, should you need emergency repairs and maintenance, our Community After Hours team can assist.
National presence, local reach
We have the scale and flexibility to protect your home and investment
We love local strata. With more than 30 branches across New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, we have the breadth and resources to focus on getting our communities – what they need, what they want to achieve and how we can make things better for them.
Our services don’t stop with the standard list of duties common to every strata management company. Instead, PICA Group brings proactive solutions to the table, continuously thinking of ways to work smarter, deliver more and meet our customers’ needs.
We raise the bar not only on what we can deliver but also on how the whole industry should be operating.
Our in-house team is resources to set, meet and exceed those industry-leading standards.
