Does anybody have any experience with 'self managed' srata's ? we looked into it a couple of years about and by hiring an accounting company to do all the accounts, billing, collections etc. we could have saved about 50% of the cost of say a 'Baywest' but some owners would rather bend over and take it up the whatever than try something new that might save them so money!

Know your facts before you try and tarnish someones name and insult them..If she is your manager and you have heard of these rumors then why not just ask her yourself and get the truth instead of listening to people who have personal vendettas or things to gain at the expense of others.

CHOA derives most of it's income from Strata Management companies so don't expect much help from them, they are hardly going to bite the hand that feeds them!

You have got to be kidding me. Nini Nestor can take care of tarnishing her own image all by herself! She and the owner of Teamworks Property Mangement were reprimanded by the RECBC recently. Their indiffernce to the Strata Property Act as well as the strata corporations money is ruining their reputation.

Her bad behavior is what tarnished her reputation as a strata property agent, not us speaking about public knowledge.

Have you not read the letters she sent to clients defending her and Dave Hensmans reprimand on various internet sites? Honestly, what rock did you crawl out from?

Tarnish a name... well is that not interesting... I guess if Nini Nestor answered the question then we would have the answers.. would we not?

Wasn't it Nini Nestors son, Pascal who wrote fraudulent invoices to a strata to the sum of over $15,000.00 and Nini Nestor was the one who wrote the cheques to him?

Your a clown show Nini, and your rein of terror with Hensman is coming to an end.. the strata owners are finally waking up to your cooking... as in cooking the books. Oh yes.. we must not forget Ruth Taylor as well.. and of course the preacher Hensman who is nothing more than a anal being.....actually he is what is classified as anal leakage..! Teamworks, Teamjerks,Teamanal... you get the drift.. once they become your management company you might as well have aids... because you ain't gonna get better.. especially after Hensman shoves it up your butt. Right Davy boy... must feel good because you keep on doing it.

I've read the letters from nester and hensman reguarding the recbc {wreck bc} ruling agaist them. It would appear that hensman and nester are "in contempt of court".It also appears that the recbc {wreck bc} also does not take thier own decisions to have any teeth, therefore they will just turn a blind eye to the matter, and hope it all just blows away. I believe that it is the recbc {wreck bc} that should be taken to court and be removed from all involvement of strata affairs.

I was just informed that David Hensman is runing for Mission City Council in the upcoming municipal elections. This is scary times for the residents of Mission. Rumor has it the current city council is corrupt... not as corrupt as it is going to be if you elect Dave Hensman. Hensman is not only a liar he is a bully. Recently he interfered in a strata council decision to fire his company Teamwork Property Management. Hensman shows up at the Meeting and threatens the owners that he is going to sue them only to recant his statement, which of course makes him sound like a nice guy. He then sent out notice to the owners without strata council permission and called for a SGM to not only remove strata council but to also enact a bylaw where the owners could only hold 3 proxies.. the would ensure that he could not have the owners out number him. He also changed the bylaws in a Mission Strata where the fines are now rolled over into a lienable offence.. which is against the strata property act.
If you think your current Mission municipal council is corrupt... One with Hensman in will turn his little empire into a very corrupt local government...

You'll never get any info from Teamwork,I believe Hensman it's even intelligent enough to read the Strata Act never mind be qualified to interpret it on behalf of his clients. He works on intimidation and secrecy, he bribes council members and tells them lies, talks ignorantly like a broken record always repeating himself, oh and he blinks a lot, very unattractive...not professional, by any stretch of the word.

Isn't the sign of blinking eyes... a sign of a liar! This is what the Police look for when they are interogating a suspect... Wow I never knew Hensman did that...Thankyou... that is bang on information.

Yes as a matter of fact it is. If you watch him when he is asked to answer an uncomfortable question you will notice typical lair behaviors- actually "psychopathic behaviors". In Hensman's case his head tilts to the right, his breathing becomes labored, his completion reddens and he starts to mildly perspires ( or glow). Should he be challenged the blinking of his eyes becomes more rapid and he looks down more frequently, the more uncomfortable he is, the less eye contact he makes. Should he not have an answer or rational response to the question he will make his one point over and over again until you back off in frustration. He feels no remorse as people are a commodity, it's a numbers game to him. And we are all just tools of the master. Or so he'd like to think.

I've heard from medical experts that a psychopath can not feel remores or any feelings for others.EXAMPLE-If the wife of a psychopath were to die in a fatal car accident, the psychopath would not feel remores for the loss of the wife, but only feel remores for the loss of his laundry not getting done for him, or meals not made for him.Sound familiar?

Has anybody read the current edition of Reader’s Digest? The cover: Psychopaths Among Us.

Some interesting points of the article:

“He’d be happiest if he were the dictator of a small country and could boil the natives”

“Psychopaths are all around us, functioning within society reasonably well, but usually at somebody else’s expense”

“Psychopaths are cold-blooded, conscienceless megalomaniacs who regard other people as objects to be used and discarded at will”

Sound familiar?

Hey ! I was not aware that Readers Digest interviewed Hensman !

So... people in authority and supposedly expert in strata affairs would advise us to forget about past council minutes and not to vote in any kind of recording devices to be used in strata council meetings are determined to eliminate the guilty of the past.In my minutes, some of these so called authority figures {maybe SPA} are indeed guilty and are trying to cover their tracks.These so called council minutes are the only means of holding strata counil members and property agents/company accountable.Although Tony G. advises of not having recording devices at council meetings,if this council did have Tony G. on a recorded device,I for one would have expected a much stiffer sentence then what Tony actualy recieved for his intrusion in a strata council meeting.All strata's with Dave Hensman would be very wise to enact a vidio record of all council meetings.Those councils that have stood up to TPM's tactics would not have had any problems in eliminating the dictator amongs us!

One of the problems is that RECBC only administers the Real Estate Services Act. The Lawyers wrote the Strata Property Act in such a way that disputes must go to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court requires lawyers, and very costly ones at that. The entire Strata Property Act was written for Strata Management Companies, Lawyers and trades. It basically screws the strata owner, because any dispute.. Supreme Court. There is a case right now where allegations against Dave Hensman and the Mayor wannabe for Mission are in a conflict of interest. Consider this.. Hensman is runing for Mission City Council, Ted Aldem is runing for Mayor. Ted Aldem
is a Strata Corporation President, and Dave Hensman and his company Teamwork Property Management manage the strata.. Recently there have been reports that under the direction of Hensman the Strata Council passed a bylaw whereas fines are now a lienable offence. Well folks that is illegal.. that is in direct violation of SPA and to change this requires a legislative change to the act. Hensman knows this, but if the owners decide to fight it he can charge $180.00 per hour to look up records and to maybe attend hearings.. So being a liar and probably the most unscrupulous strata manager, Hensman makes a lot of money. Much like his investment scam and the lies he has told many. With Hensman it is oops I am sorry I made a mistake.. But Hensman has written the he is a professional strata manager and has professional knowledge of SPA. He is right, he does have a profesional knowledge of SPA... he knows that he can do as he pleases with impunity. It is up to the poor owner to challenge it... and yep.. the Supreme Court.

Suggestion: Maybe we should saturate the Supreme Court with lawsuits filed on our own, and maybe the Supreme Court will stand up for us and tell the government to enact the Small Claims procedures for strata owners. This is something the government is dragging their heels on.. under Bill 8 revision the recommendation was to move Strata Owners claims to Small Claims Court.. they have enacted the 20% petition and other parts, but not owners right to dispute. I am waiting to see a Strata Rep get nailed by a Judge for causing financial problems on owners. I would like to see Hensman receive a $500,000.00 fine or jail time for his actions.

SPA BC AND CHOA: The Truth behind Kevin and Tony what every strata owner should know:

These are some direct quotes from Kevin Thom (SPA BC) regarding owners of strata properties:

The whole new emphasis of “access to information” and “disclosure” place management companies under huge stress for quick and accurate retrieval of information. Who pays a staff member to effect security over Strata Corporation records while a disgruntled owner pours through years of records over several days in a vain search for some misdeed or wrong doing?

“This is all done on behalf of clients who do not see what we do on their behalf and are “paying our wages”!

The Real Estate Sales industry has been under increased pressure to have vendors properly disclose property conditions, which has also been under extreme scrutiny due to the “leaky condo crisis”.

These are some direct quotes from a current court case Tony Gioventu from (CHOA) was involved in; in which he illegally chaired a strata meeting;

a) failure to conduct the meeting in accordance with the Highland Park bylaws, and in particular purporting to appoint as Chair of the meeting a person, TONY GIOVENTU who was not authorized to act as chair and permitting him to run the meeting and unreasonably restrict discussion and debate among Highland Park owners who were entitled to speak at the meeting.

b) failure to make any or proper arrangements for a secret ballot vote concerning the special levy, including private locations to mark ballots and submit ballots

c) failure to properly administer the distribution of ballots during the sign-in process including without limitation failure to distribute a ballot properly due to the petitioner and distributing an excessive number of ballots to three other strata owners

d) failure to have attained the requisite 75% majority.

TONY AND KEVIN YOU BOTH SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES! YOU OWNERS OUT THERE WHO KNOW YOUR STRATA IS A MEMBER OF THESE ASSOCIATIONS MUST SPEAK OUT! TELL THE TRUTH! STOP THESE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE WE THE OWENRS DO NOT HAVE RIGHTS!

I for one have had enough. after viewing some info and quotes from Tony G. I have now canceled my subscription to the Province newspaper.I will no longer suport anything that gives unscrupulous people a voice to pervert strata owners rights. Strata owners take note, cancel your Province newspaper and tell them that you will not suport Tony G. in any manner.I would also sugest you cancel you CHOA membership as well.I have yet to hear anything good to come out of a CHOA membership.

interesting stuff by Dr. Dale A. Robbins ;

Getting to the Root of the Problem

The devil's primary strategy is to disguise his activities so that it appears that someone or something else is to blame. He wants us to get our attention on his surrogates, his instruments, his hindrances and "wrestle" with them, so that our battle will be directed against the "symptoms" instead of the "real source."

We all know that a decongestant will help relieve a stuffy nose, but it will not cure a cold. Likewise, you can fight with the symptoms of the Devil, but you will not end the problems until you deal with the source and bind the "strong man."

Tony G is a mouth piece for the industry side of strata living. This has been said over and over and recently he was named in a paragraph in a lawsuit whereas he not only denied people the right to speak at a SGM he also fked up the silent vote.

That is a very good idea to cancel your subsciptions.. but here is something you did not know. The newspapers are afraid to post stories on strata living.. and it is probably because unscrupulous managers such as Dave Hensman had threatened to sue them.. Mind you Hensman is running for Mission City Council, maybe he will quit the strata management side and then he can terrorize the good people of Mission. And by the way folks, Ted Alden... he won't be your Mayor, it will be Dave Hensman who will pull his chain. Hensman does it now because Aldren is president of a strata in Mission and he lets Dave Hensman do all of his talking for him.. Pizza anyone?
