A breath of fresh air

We recently held our AGM, Charles from BCS at Warriewood conducted the meeting. There was a lot to get through but the meeting was expertly kept on track, to the point and on time.

Any questions raised were dealt with in a professional manner and the depth of knowledge of the Act and associated processes impressive.

For such a dry subject it was a great meeting which we all enjoyed and were satisfied with the results at its completion. Thanks, Charles.

Elizabeth Wang

Elizabeth Wang has managed the 22 Townhouses I reside for a few years. She has had to deal with some difficult owners but with negotiation and skill has been a very competent manager.

Elizabeth is very knowledgeable with Strata law and the rules and regulations and I would not hesitate to recommend her as a strata manager.

Julie at BCS, Chatswood NSW is fabulous

We would like to acknowledge the extensive assistance, advice and professionalism provided to us by Julie Edwards of BCS Chatswood office, (especially) over the past couple of months regarding our hoped for property refurbishment.

Julie was very knowledgeable and courteous, plus always available to assist us, which has enabled our refurbishment to be appropriately voted on to proceed. Thank you so much Julie, we greatly appreciated your assistance, Lisle & Luke.

Thank you BCS Strata

Having dealt with several different strata companies over the past decade & a bit in real estate, it stands to show the value of a strata manager/team who will work with agents towards the best outcome for their clients.

Furthermore, taking the time to explain what they don’t teach us in real estate school allows us to work better together. I value their advice & assistance over the years namely the team at BCS Gosford where I operated for 6 years dealing with various managers in the time. Thank you!!
