Case Study

Caulfield Estate – Beck Property Group

BECK Property Group has enjoyed a relationship with Victoria Body Corporate Services for over 10 years.

Our initial contact for every project has always been on the basis of establishing budgets for the pre-sale of our residential communities. These budget assumptions have always proved to be accurate once the Owners Corporations commences. The team at VBCS have assisted us greatly in the lead up to settlements coordinating the initial OC meeting and establishing procedures for settlements and move-ins.

Our recent experience at Caulfield Heath (468 apartments and townhouses) has cemented in our minds VBCS’s wide-ranging capabilities. Their team contracted on-site building management, placemaking, maintenance, caretaking and cleaning services. Caulfield Heath has been in operation for almost two years and to date these services have all operated most efficiently.

The professionalism and reporting procedures implemented by VBCS have provided us with great comfort in knowing that we have appointed the best team to cater for our clients’ needs.

We would have no hesitation in recommending VBCS to manage residential communities in any part of Victoria.
