Started by our 3 Directors, Stuart Mellington, Peter Black and Geoff Steele, the SELECT group has grown into a network of industry award winning strata managers with more than 50-years of experience managing Owners Corporations right across Melbourne.
Our Directors were used to seeing property owners struggle with the legal, financial, reporting and insurance challenges associated with Owners Corporation management. SELECT was born from their mutual desire to help and support clients manage these challenges and complexities whilst at the same time providing a premium standard of service excellence on which their clients could rely.
SELECT has now grown into a preferred and trusted service provider and our clients agree.
Collectively, we manage more than 1,000 Owners Corporations right across Melbourne, comprising of more than 13,000 individual properties.
You too, can always rely on the team at SELECT.
With more than 21-years of experience in Owners Corporation management, Peter Black believes the essence of outstanding customer relationships is sound and effective communication. Peter places a strong priority on responding promptly to issues as a measure of respect for clients and is a model of operational excellence to our Executive team and entire staff.
As a 20-year member of Strata Community Australia (SCA) Peter is actively involved in advocating for the industry, particularly for increased protections for lot owners. Peter continues to improve the professionalism and standing of the industry within our sector, and is highly regarded as a recipient of the Best Owners Corporation Manager Award by SCA Victoria. A loyal Collingwood supporter, Peter enjoys time spent with family and friends and tinkering with cars and computers.
A qualified Civil Engineer by trade Geoff Steele has more than 20-years of Owners Corporation management experience. Geoff has worked directly on a range of prominent property sites across Melbourne and Victoria. However, it was the personal and long-term relationships with clients that saw Geoff commit to a career in strata management where his extensive problem-solving skills, underpin his solution-focussed approach.
Geoff’s genuine desire to know, care and support our clients, resonates across our entire business and he is committed to every person's individual and rewarding experience at SELECT.
Geoff strikes a rare balance between possessing the commercial sensibilities needed for success with the personable and genuine human qualities that make him indispensable to SELECT clients and our team. Geoff is committed to sustainability, and in his spare time, you will usually find him enjoying the magnificent offerings of Victoria’s beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
Stuart Mellington brings a wealth of commercial property experience to SELECT. However, a life spent participating in local sporting clubs, forever shaped his views on the importance of community. It was these qualities that served as the drivers to start his own Body Corporate operation that grew to more than a dozen staff and then into SELECT.
Stuart has served for many years on the National and State leadership teams of Strata Communities Australia (SCA) and is a current serving member on the Victorian SCA Board. Stuart's standard of excellence clearly runs in the family. Stuart’s daughter Amy Buxton (nee Mellington) was recently awarded SCA Strata Manager of the Year.
Stuart has a passion for competitive sailing and is a 30-year member of the Sandringham Yacht Club. He has competed in four Sydney-to-Hobart races and when Stuart is not on the water, he can be found maintaining his health and fitness in his love of cycling, running and walking with family and friends.
