Strata Manager in Sydney

The best Strata Management Sydney can count on

The Strata Collective was formed with a simple goal – to provide complete strata management Sydney services, across the city, in order to add value to the properties of all owners. We aim to provide leading service to clients that want a close, personal relationship with their Strata Manager. The reason for this is that when mutual trust is established, we are able to add enormous value to their strata community.

What makes us one of the best strata companies Sydney has is the way we build community through relationships is through regular, constant communication on the phone, meetings (electronic or in person) and via responsive email communications. We also regularly visit our sites and have a good working knowledge of all our properties that we are the strata manager to. This gives us the ability to be able to add value to the current items at each property in order to provide professional advice and guidance concerning the issues at hand.

As the leading boutique Strata Manager Sydney, The Strata Collective is currently the winner of the 2018 Small Strata Manager of the Year – NSW.

Most of our new clients are referred to us by our current clients. We find that many strata buildings now require want hands on, proactive and committed strata manager. You will immediately notice an improvement when working with our experienced team.

One of our aims is to treat every client like they are our only client and ensure that each client is treated as more than just an 'SP number'. We treat each client as a unique strata with unique challenges. Rest assured, we will provide you with a personalised strata management service as we aim to listen to your requirements intently to match our services to your specific requirements.

The Strata Collective Managing Director Rod Smith sits on the SCA (NSW) Strata Managers Sub Committee and has previously been elected as a representative to the UDIA (property development peak body) Strata Management Committee for five years.



Strata success comes from building positive relationships with you, our clients. We invest time to form genuine relationships to ensure the communities we manage live efficiently and harmoniously.

The owners we serve are our top priority.



We make sure your are well informed on all items at your building by offering access to a state-of-the-art portal.

Here you can access details of financials, building updates, minutes of meetings plus more 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.



We take full responsibility of our actions when managing your building and treat your property, your time and your money with the utmost respect.

Your success in living in a harmonious community is our success as strata managers.

Our Mission

The Strata Collective was formed with a simple vision - to have great relationships with clients in order to achieve outstanding results for them. We believe that Strata success comes through Collective efforts as a team.

We are a next generation Strata Management business that invests in technology to put information in the hands of our strata committees.

We believe great relationships come from spending time with our clients at their property and really listening to provide valuable feedback. The role of a 'next generation' strata manager requires more than replying to emails and sitting through meetings.

I am the Chairperson of a block of 24 apartments. Our Strata Committee was extremely frustrated with our previous strata manager as they didn’t provide any advice on the issues faced, advice concerning updates in the legislation or take a proactive interest in our property. We moved across to The Strata Collective and have been happy with their professionalism, recommendations and support.


Chairperson – Sutherland

I have known Rod Smith for over fifteen years in both a personal and professional capacity and when he commenced offering Strata Services through his own business I had no hesitation in suggesting to our Executive Committee they should meet him to see what he can offer. When The Strata Collective took over our Strata needs from a larger organisation it was a quick and seamless transition and they have delivered service and continue and deliver well beyond expectations. Rod remains hands-on with our Strata despite the rapid growth in his business and gives the feel he treats all Strata’s as his first and only customer. I have no hesitation in recommending him to Strata’s large or small, whether you think you are getting the service you require or not, there’s always someone like Rod there willing to provide above and beyond


Chairperson - Rozelle

I am the Secretary of a large mixed-use Strata Scheme in the Sydney CBD. We appointed The Strata Collective as we wanted to work with a hands-on, proactive manager that had good experience with the issues faced by CBD buildings. We are delighted to work with Rod Smith and his team. We have found them to be helpful, professional and prompt. We highly recommend their service.
