There are very few certainties in life, and even fewer in business – yet over the last 14 years one thing that has been proven to me is if you don’t recognise and embrace beneficial change – your business will wither and die. When I built TheOnsiteManager back in 2005, the concept of an online portal for Management Rights seemed ideal. There we were with a multi-billion-dollar management rights marketplace just sitting there, and the only way to actually sell a management rights was to shove a little ad onto a dark corner of the Gold Coast Bulletin newspaper and hope for the best.

I trust this letter finds you well.  Please forgive me for not writing earlier but I have been meeting clients all weekend and every evening. Thanks so much for your recent correspondence albeit at 950 + pages I must confess I have not read the entire document in detail.  Sufficient to say that what I have read, particularly in relation to finance brokers and mortgage brokers troubles me, not least because your findings seem to reflect a lack of understanding of what it is that finance brokers actually do. How could this be I wondered? Surely the many days that you and Rowena spent imbeddedRead More →

This was illustrated in a recent case in the Southport Magistrates Court, in which Short Punch & Greatorix successfully acted for a manager. In this instance, the manager had been concerned with ensuring that the pool and spa area of his building were operated in a manner that was compliant with the scheme by-laws. The building had, amongst its occupiers, a number ofRead More →

The knowledge a new entrant to the Management Rights Industry commences can be very limited, and more often than not, it is limited to the three days of industry licensing. Significantly, many managers entering the Industry, are quite unsure what they have to do, what the role entails, how they do it, and where to turn when they have an issue. Committees look at the experience of an incoming Building Manager at an assignment meeting and find it is their life experiences only that fills the skills requirements.  Certainly, backgrounds in maintenance, administration and the like are helpful, but is the lack of understanding settingRead More →
