  • Challenge review

    “We have a mix of owner-occupiers and investors in our building and have never found the ‘right’ way of doing things to satisfy both owners desires, since using CSM we are finally having relaxed BC meetings and all the owners are happy!!”

  • Sharing my Opinion

    I have dealt with the strata on several different occasions and have always found their level of professionalism one of their strongest qualities. Challenge Strata Management replaced our earlier useless strata managers and the process for all strata related issues is much easier. I would recommend the strata managers for anyone else on the Gold Coast.”

  • Excellent Service

    Stephanie always responds to my emails with professionalism and in a timely manner. This is important to me as I live in another state and rely upon emails to make contact and resolve issues relating to my unit on the Gold Coast.
