The team are truly professional – they listen, analyse the problem, develop a plan, advise you, and produce results that always put the interests of our business first.  Our company looks forward to working with them for many years to come”.

What Our Clients Think

“DR Strata has partnered with CIA for more than 20 years.   

As we manage over 600 body corporates or owners corporations, CIA has been our strategic partner in the placement of insurance for the Owners corporation under management during this time. In this process we have found that the service and advice they offer to the owners corporations and ourselves to be invaluable.  

By partnering with CIA for the insurance needs of the owners corporations under management, we have greatly reduced internal administration and we have peace of mind knowing that the owners corporations have the correct insurance to cover for their needs.  CIA understand our industry and we highly recommend CIA for the professional insights and service provided us and the Owners corporation under our management”
