I have posted in another post about people viewing Meriton managing our building as a conflict of interest. I just don't get that at all. It has been so beneficial for us to have them manage our building because they know it back to front and inside out. Some strata managers have never even been to the buildings they manage. You have a lot of advertising on your site including Meriton. Can you tell me how that works if the strata industry are opposed to this?

I should have added. Don't get me wrong. I love this site. I had no idea there was such a fantastic tool out there for lot owners. I just like to know how everyone works together.

Hi niceone

Welcome to the site. I am glad you found us.

This website is primarily about strata living but it also covers all aspects of apartment living. If the strata industry were opposed to Meriton supporting this site that would just be too bad - however - that is not the case. Sure, they might have an opinion about Meriton managing the strata in their own buildings but most of the strata companies who support this site have a good working relationship with Meriton.

At the end of the day, Meriton feels as the strata companies do that a portal just for lot owners is valuable support for them. Without lot owners there would be no Meriton or strata companies. Harry Triguboff said to me when I told him I was building this site, "You help the people who live in my units and I will support you."

I can't tell you the individual opinions of each and every strata company about Harry having his own strata arm at Meriton but I can tell you without reservation that none of the strata companies who support this site have any issue at all with Meriton's involvement. This site is not about politics, it is about having a totally interactive information portal for all lot owners. For that to be at no cost to the consumer, we need sponsorship support. Stratalive is a new brand and I thank everyone who has supported it in its early development.
