The Worst Strata Management- Don't Hire Them- Run Now!!
The most corrupted strata management, untrustworthy, unprofessional, do not make the mistake and hire them. They are never available, they will not show receipts of expenses, expenses have increased and levies have increased 4 times.
Great support and service from our Strata Manager Alain Gai
As the treasurer of 62-64 Dudley St, Coogee I’d like to commend Alain Gai for his excellent service as our Strata manager.
During his association with our block, Alain has maintained a close familiarity with our property and this has greatly assisted us in getting things done in a prompt and efficient manner.
Alain is both professional and personable and this makes working with him for the good of our block a pleasant experience. Alain is always available to assist with our questions and advises as required and thus he is valuable asset in support of our block.
As a Strata Committee member and treasurer, I am pleased to recommend Alain Gai as an excellent Strata manager.
Strata Manager far superior than most
As a property manager and also owner, I have worked with a lot of strata managers and strata companies over the past 20 years. Alain Gyi from GK Strata Management has been far superior than most I have encountered. He is extremely efficient, prompt to action items and very professional. The building in which I reside has undergone some major works and battles and Alain has really been pushed to the limit. He maintains a strong work ethic, continues to provide sound advice and has been a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Alain to anyone looking for a new strata manager.
OUTSTANDING SUPPORT FROM GK STRATA AND STRATA MANAGER
Many, many, many thanks to GK Strata and in particular our Strata Manager Josh Moses! Josh's professionalism and attentiveness has made living in our place extremely enjoyable knowing that Josh and JK were behind us in every aspect to our building! No task is too small and Josh was quick to help us during a weekend when our damaged hot water heater broke during the winter! That is just one of many incident's we have had! Thank you very much for your continued support and quick responses to our every need! Regards, Lou
Excellent performers compared to other Strata Managers
I have worked on strata committees for many years and we’ve found it difficult to change from our former poorly performing Strata Managers. About a year ago we changed to GK Strata after getting some excellent personal reviews. Well what a breath of fresh air and how wonderful have they been. They are responsive and professional in their service and they are also technically astute and able to provide sound advice to Committees. I strongly endorse our change to GK and would recommend other disgruntled Committees give GK Strata an opportunity to help them
A great strata management team
GK have provided excellent support during a time of conflict with a number of owners in our Strata. As with any strata, personalities can sometimes clash and GK has proven highly experienced in assisting the Strata Committee to negotiate an outcome for the betterment of all owners. In addition to assisting with internal conflict, they have also proven technically proficient, helpful and very professional. I thoroughly recommend them.
This is so spot on.
After trying to get clarification by email and phone to unsubstantiated allegations from SC and GK I was informed that I had sent too many emails and warned that I would be billed or taken to appropriate body. GK strata manager did not follow on their information note regarding "how to complain/report a breach of by-law" and did not try to contact me regarding the matter. I was named in minutes of the SC without any warning and immediately the issue was escalated to legal proceedings.

Don't believe anything...
We have had nothing but bad experiences from GK Strata. I think the favorable reviews on this site have been fabricated by that company themselves. GK fail on every level- their communication is poor, their ability to guide through issues is non existent, they are slow at repairs/maintenance and they are a financial rip-off. For more realistic comments see Google reviews about GK Strata.
Now you watch... the manager will post a response to my comments above saying how concerned they are about our negative experience and to call and discus...

We changed to GK Management over a year ago and have been very pleased with the services provided.
Joshua Moses our strata manager has been excellent.
He managers our old warehouse with mutilple owners with great patience and diligence.
It's an aging factory that requires a great deal of attention and Josh has done a fine job with all the maintenance and services.

Dedicated service from Stacey Hofmeester.
Stacey provides an excellent service in being the Strata Manager for our building. She responds quickly, is highly knowledgeable, communicates well and takes action as required. I can highly recommend her after experiencing a number of other Strata Managers.
Stacey Hofmeester acts for our Strata Comittee and in this capacity is particularly effective and professional. She is totally organised, arrives early, and has a complete grasp of our issues. In 20 years of ownership, and comittee attendance, I would say that she is the best Strata Manager’s Representative I have met.
Stacey is excellent.
Stacey has been with our strata for about a year. We've used GK ever since I've been in the building (18 years) and during that time we've had about 6 different people with different levels of expertise. Stacey stands out, but having had another person who was competent only to find that they left after a very short time, makes me wonder if the policy of the company is to use us as a training ground as we're a small strata, before they go on to bigger buildings? I do hope that's not the case here as being 'au fait' with the building takes time and it'd be a pity to lose her.
Happy to Recommend Alain Gui & GK Strata
Alain Gui is the strata manager for our 22 townhouses. I have always found Alain to be helpful and proficient across any issues that have arisen. He deals with matters in a prompt and professional manner, even those sensitive issues that arise from time to time. I am very happy to recommend Alain & GK Strata to any strata committee looking for a strata manager.
Very happy with GK Strata and our manager, Nathan
I am on the committee for a building of 40 units. We have recently changed to GK Strata with Nathan as our manager and I couldn't be happier. Both Nathan personally and the company as a whole have impressed me greatly since they took over the management of my building. Nathan has saved us money, come up with solutions to long-standing issues and generally been very helpful, quickly coming up to speed with the needs of our building. The company-wide services such as the repair/maintenance team are quick to respond and resolve issues. I am very pleased and looking forward to working with Nathan in 2019.
Happy with Alain as our strata manager
Alain is our strata manager at GK Strata. Alain has assisted me greatly in a very professional manner with a long running issue in my unit that involved the common property. He proposed a way forward and acted on it promptly to bring the matter to the Strata Committee's attention and implemented a way forward so we can work to have the issue fixed and the matter closed.
Happy with GK Strata and our manager
Alain Gyi is our strata manager at GK Strata. I have dealt with Alain as an owner and an Executive Member for the body corporate. Alain is always prompt with replies and contact, conducts all meetings with efficiency and overall is very professional. He's a great Strata Manager and always a pleasure to deal with.
Questions & Answers
Is Darren Wood looking after 120 Alison Rd. Randwick ? I am wondering if he has an access to his emails or he is very busy and has no time to respond to emails or he just ignores them believing the issue will go away. What if it was an emergency? It would be greatly appreciated if GK Strata Management provides me with an reliable contact.
How do we change strata manager?
GK Strata P.GK Strata Management
Thank you for your enquiry.
In regards to changing strata manager, the first discussion that you should have is with your strata committee to bring up any issues that you may have with your strata manager.
Once agreed, please ask the strata committee to contact the branch manager directly to discuss.

Can an Owner be refused election to the Strata Committee at an AGM?
GK Strata P.GK Strata Management
Good Afternoon Roberta,
The members of the strata committee must be elected at each annual general meeting (AGM).
The strata committee is to consist of such number of members, as the owners corporation may determine, but may not exceed 9. Large schemes must have a minimum of 3 members.
Any person nominating or being nominated for the strata committee must do in writing prior to the meeting or verbally at the AGM. The legislation calls for nominations before and at the AGM, and specifies that the consent of the nominated person is to be in writing or in person at the meeting.
If the number of nominations exceeds the number determined, then a ballot is held to elect the committee.
ELIGIBLE FOR ELECTION
• an individual who is an owner
• a company nominee of a corporation that is an owner
• a co-owner of a lot if nominated by another owner other than the co-owner, or the co-owner if they are not a candidate. Only one co-owner of a lot can be a member at the same time.
• an individual who is not an owner but who is nominated for election by an owner who is not a member nor a candidate.
WHO IS INELIGIBLE FOR ELECTION
• Building manager
• Property manager / leasing agent
• Person connected to the original owner who does not disclose the connection. Un-financial owner at the time of the notice who has not paid amounts owing prior to the meeting.
• If become ineligible after appointment and does not disclose in writing to the secretary or chairperson.
I hope this helps.
