Over the past three years Michael Pittam has worked as the Body Corporate Manager for Ace Body Corporate Management (Logan). As a lot owner and past Secretary Committee Member, I worked closely with Michael on a range of initiatives to manage the complex to a high standard. This required Michael to attend the property to meet the Committee, inspect the complex and to organise works through email/phone and face to face meetings, as well as coordinating the annual general meeting.At all times, Michael has displayed a professional attitude and approach to his role, providing timely advice to the Committee, and going over and above to help the Committee to roll out improvements and other work activities to ensure the safety of residents and guests at Puistola.Importantly, Michael engages in meaningful work with the Committee to help them to achieve the best outcomes for all owners and residents of Puistola.
Anna Archer- Chairperson
"Michael has been our Body Corporate Manager for just over 12 months. It's been a great experience dealing with him, he understood what we needed to achieve in regards to property repairs, maintenance and improvement and we have and continue to achieve these goals.
Mike is a manager who is active in chasing arrears and does so working within the correct procedures that safeguard our Committee and Body Corporate. The whole process of arrears is much less worrying and far easier to deal with.
He has helped our committee greatly in handling matters with neighbours and proven to be extremely professional, personable and most import a qualified expert in body corporate issues.
In my experience I have no hesitation in recommending him as a Body Corporate Manager".
Neville Kretschmann - President/Treasurer
"As the President/treasurer for the Body Corporate I would highly recommend Michael Pittman and Ace Body Corporate Management (Logan).
The Body Corporate was set up by the developer at completion of construction of our unit complex in May 2017. At this time the developer appointed Strata Services Qld, based in Bundaberg to run our Body Corporate. From day 1 their services left a lot of answered questions. There was no attention to detail, they did not follow the correct Body Corporate procedure and were slow and sometimes not at all in responding to enquiries just to name a few.
The committee decided to take matters into their own hands and issued remedial action notices to SSQ who still did not attend to the issues at hand. The committee approached Ace Body Corporate to take over the management of our Body Corporate.
Since Michael had taken over as Body Corporate Manager we have had no issues. Michael has been able to get us back on track, managing property issues and regulatory compliance.
We can highly recommend Michael Pittman who has turned around the management of our property with lower Body Corporate levies and full transparency of body corporate matters.
