I am currently a Strata Council member in a townhouse complex in South Surrey. In October 2013 I was one of 4 new members elected to Council. As a result of unforeseen circumstances the 4 of us ended up being the only sitting Council members, all with no past experience.
Without hesitation I can say that if it wasn't for the support we received from the staff at NAI Goddard & Smith, and in particular Sandi Coffin-DeGuilio, we would never have survived the first few months. Sandi's knowledge, advice and professionalism was invaluable to all of us then, and continues to this day. She helped us overcome the unenviable situation we found ourselves in, and has given us the knowledge and confidence to deal with the day-to-day challenges of Strata life.
I would like to thank NAI Goddard & Smith and Sandi for their continued support and guidance.
