Condo Reviews:

I enjoy the location facilities and the building management at The Redonda It is near malls schools bus stations and a quiet and convenient neighborhood with very friendly neighbors Redonda is well known for their friendly people and pet friendly environment Having owned more than one unit in this building I can attest to the fact that the building is well cared for under Wynford management Neil Fraser and the current Strata Council 2013 For an Owner and investor like myself it would not make financial sense to own multiple units in the same building if it is not well maintained For new buyers this building is an excellent choice for first time buying it is affordable and the strata fees are reasonable There had been several special assessments in the past 5 years not exceeding 3000 in total which covered the flat roof replacement balcony repairs security upgrades and most recently the shingled roof replacement All work was well managed to be completed on time and on budget So in short it is well managed Obviously there will be people who cannot be satisified in any way but for the rest of us and myself as an investor buying in this building does make sense Hopefully my comment can be helpful to those who are considering The Redonda as their next place of residence

While we have no leaks and the balconeys are being restored and the 3 rooftops have been replaced the overall maintenance and appearance of the building has diminished greatly over the years Garage is dirty and needs repaintin elevator rooms and doors need painting caretaker does minimal new landscapers needed Furthermore council continues to not participate in the free water meter program offered by city hall As this will definitely be obligatory down the road this will incur residents a 50 000 plus assessment to install water meters in future since the free program will be discontinued by end of 2012 Needless to say many residents are unhappy with current council and property management

I have lived in this building for many years and it has improved very much over time The new ish property management company is great I can reach them all when I want and they answer me promptly The council is made up people with varying age and background which really helps our building They have been very proactive In recent years we have had our Roof Replace new furnaces put in and now we are upgrading some of the balconys Unfortunately the Strata council that was in many years ago was not proactive and caused some of the issues The council recently improved the front of the building The new front is great looking and much safer The building has amazing curb appeal Something I enjoyed recently is that the council has setup a website where we can go and see up to date information about the building There is also an email for council suggestions and feedback I personally don't have time to join the council but I can sleep well at night knowing I live in such a great building ran by smart educated and logical people

I am an original owner This was the first home I purchased and watched it being built I loved it then and I love it now Condo living does take some getting used to Like all structures with time things need to be repaired and to my knowledge all legitimate complaints have been addressed over the years Yes these things do cost money like they would in any home I used to serve on council and did so for a few years It is not an easy job all voluntary and no real thanks but I did it because I loved my home and wanted to contribute to making it a better place for all As for the management company I prefered when John Bower was taking care of the place he always returned my calls even when I wasn't on council and was very helpful The management company now has yet to impress me it definetly lacks the personal approach I am sure council had their reasons for changing management companies and if this one does not live up to their standards they will shop around for a new one In close I would like to say if you live here and you are not happy with how things are being done do something about it and volunteer I have found over the years it always seems to be the same people putting in the time to run coucil with a few coming and going Step up make a change and stop complaining do something about it Above all remember this is your home it is a beautiful place and life is what you make it

I lived in this building for more then 6 years and I left due to the strarta council neglect and management company Wynford Group was crap to deal with My manager John Sharkey was and will be always crap to deal with If you want trouble move into this building This is build to avoid due structure issues and strata and management problems All they want is your money not your quality of life I would not recommend this building to anyone

The above reviews of this building are a lie The management company that looks after this building which was mentioned above is only recent so for the above reviewer to even say that they've had six years of dealing with this management company is not possible Also since this building is 15 years old it has had a number of maintenance areas that needed to be worked on this is to be expected with a 15 year old building Perhaps this person was simply upset because they actually had to pay for the roof being replaced which is a pretty regular thing to do at this age of a building they forgot to mention that the cost of the roof came in under budget MY review of this building is that it's a friendly building that is wonderfully welcoming to people with pets I never had any issues with mold living in this building Any maintenance issues that were pointed out they don't get dealt with if you don't inform strata were dealt with in a timely manner My only complaint would be that due to it being a wood building sound travels too well between suites and noise has been an issue at times
