Lina joined MOCS as the Head of Owners Corporation with 13 years’ experience, with a solid knowledge of the Owners Corporations Act, sound book-keeping and facilities management skills.
She has experience managing various types of Owners Corporations, including high rise buildings consisting of 400+ lots with multiple Owners Corporations, large commercial business centres and mixed-use developments. All of which has given Lina exposure to the many aspects of Owners Corporation management.
Lina has managed some of Melbourne’s prestigious buildings, including The Garden House which is the recipient of 7 prestigious architectural industry awards. The Acacia Apartments, which is surrounded by 13 hectares of parkland, is perched high above of the Northcote shopping plaza and offers the residents a true sense of community living. Managing iconic historical buildings located in Melbourne’s busy lane ways and the tree lined banking district, including the Majorca Building, the Mutual and Empire Buildings, Treasury on Collins and Alkira House has exposed Lina to all aspects of managing complex buildings, based in built up – hard to access locations.
The older buildings require a different type of care and she has worked with Heritage Advisors, Heritage Victoria and the Strata communities to put in place conservation management plans for the long-term care of all of the historically significant elements which comprise these unique buildings. This experience has given Lina a strong sense of the importance of ongoing maintenance and for the long-term planning of future works.
Lina enjoys working with committees and helping them plan for the longevity of their buildings and guiding them through the legislative processes. She has a strong comprehension of the importance of maintaining the value of the Owners Corporation’s assets and keeping them looking “as new” for the future generations to enjoy.
Lina also enjoys mentoring and sharing her knowledge with other managers and staff within in the office. She is a certified A100 trainer with Strata Communities Australis (SCA). She was also invited to provide feedback to RMIT on the newly developed Certificate IV course in Property Services (Operations).
With many years of experience in the industry, Lina has developed a strong resolve, sound leadership and mediation skills, and she is well placed to manage and guide the owners and committees of large developments so that they meet their statutory obligations and maintain a harmonious community environment.
