Sectional Title Solutions
From humble beginnings, Sectional Title Solutions has tenaciously persevered and built on its solid Christian foundation to become the respected organisation it is today.
Through true grit and determination, in five years, our team has grown to over 55 employees who see themselves as part of a family. More than 1 200 clients have come to trust STS for our specialised Community Scheme solutions. As our offerings continue to expand, we aim to assist more and more Bodies Corporate and Home Owners' Associations across South Africa. Growth and increased influence is important to us as we aim to add sustainable value to the greater property industry. As long as there are people to help and problems to solve, we soldier on.
The concept of STS, a solution-driven business, was formed by two great minds – Justin and Johnny – in a house in Johannesburg
The goal was to create an entity that would provide value-add solutions to the Community Scheme industry, either by increasing the value of property, saving costs or generating much-needed revenue, whilst protecting the paying unit owner.
Getting things going
STS partnered with SA Digital Villages (owned by Dark Fibre Africa) and started to market Fibre- To-The-Home network installation solutions to Community Schemes.
On 7 October 2016, the new Sectional Title Act was promulgated, which introduced the industry OMBUD (CSOS). Key strategic relationships were formed with several Managing Agents and we commenced offering our suite of solutions to Community Schemes that they managed.
STS became an affiliate member of the National Association of Managing Agents (“NAMA”)
Lighting the way
The STS solution offering included funding, Fibre-To-The-Home, Solar Energy and Legal Advisory.
We also successfully secured insurance on our Project/Term loan solutions, which significantly enhanced the offering to our lending clients.
Our solution offering included Funding, Fibre-To-The-Home, Solar Energy, Legal Advisory and Outdoor Advertising.
STS also became a member of Association of Residential Communities (ARC).
Making an impact
We also introduced efficient Hot Water Solutions to our Solar energy solutions.
STS also partnered with Estate Living.
Supporting our communities
Backing the Thomson Smillie Foundation’s annual cycle tour, enabled us to support education. Staying on the topic of education, in affiliation with the Training Academy for Community Schemes in South Africa (TRACS), we launched an online training platform to provide free community scheme-related courses. We also supported communities in need through financial assistance, food and care packages in collaboration with Faith Foods Distribution.
We sponsored and installed a completely off-grid solar and battery storage solution for the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary, catering for the NPO’s daily power and water necessities.
By becoming a proud premier sponsor of Women in Sectional Title (WiST) we are well-positioned to assist in promoting gender equality in the community scheme industry.
In terms of our solution offering, we’ve assisted community schemes to gain grid independency and save even more on energy costs with our Battery Backup and Hot Water Solutions being added to our Efficient Energy portfolio.
Resulting from a partnership with GLOVent, we now also offer community schemes access to an integrated platform that makes community management a breeze.
