Strata Manager Courses

What does a Strata Manager do?

A Strata Manager attends to the daily operations of a strata property. You’ll need to make sure everything is running smoothly from collection of strata fees to organising any necessary repairs and maintenance. You may have more than one property to look after and you might liaise with residents, tradespeople and industry stakeholders on both large and small projects. A Strata Manager also looks after the financial and administrative aspects of a strata property and makes sure all property regulations are met.

Good time management and organisational skills are crucial for a Strata Manager. You’ll often be working on many tasks at once so you’ll need to be a multi-tasker. Strata Managers need excellent communication skills and you’ll have to be a good negotiator. Problem solving skills are also essential as you sort out the numerous strata issues that come your way each day.


How much does a Strata Manager earn?
