About Condo Diagnostics
Condo Diagnostics Ltd. is the culmination of a lengthy learning experience focused
on condominiums and how they operate. The purpose of the company is to provide
as many people as possible with either general knowledge about condominiums or specific
knowledge regarding the condominium they are considering purchasing, or both.
The company offers a condominium document review service for prospective purchasers
or sellers of condominium units and consulting services for boards of condominiums
and property managers. You can also obtain a book, "The Original Condominium
Checklist Book", written by the owner of the company.
A CD version of the book can be purchased separately to serve as a learning tool.
About Phyllis Fyckes
Phyllis Fyckes, President of Condo Diagnostics Ltd., has been fascinated by the
complexities of condominium living since she purchased an apartment condominium
many moons ago as a totally green homeowner. She immediately got involved on the
Board of Directors and learned how little she then knew about condominiums. Among
other distressing occurrences, the City had informed the complex they would shut
off the water to the building unless the complex started paying its outstanding bills.
This was the beginning of a tremendous learning experience.
Phyllis already had a university degree and a general management certificate, and
her innate curiousity led her to get a building operator A certificate, so she would
have more insight into how buildings must be managed. This quickly led to a
position as a property manager for condominiums, and later work at a consulting company
which provided condominium document reviews among other services. As can happen,
she developed a desire to have her own business and lend her own style to the work she
did. Her company was established in late 2003. As she said, "I wanted other
people to be more knowledgeable than I was when I bought my first condo."
