The Team

Martin Strode, director of SMA, acquired a taste for property development in 1991, while working as a carpenter and builder.

Having successfully renovated and sold his first property, Martin began redeveloping townhouse sites within a 5 km radius of Melbourne’s CBD. The subsequent growth of SMA Projects – registered in 1993 - was an organic, measured process that endows the company with a maturity uncommon in property developers.

Martin is supported by a uniquely qualified and talented team – including Robert Murphy, Ben McCann, Robert Paolino, Dino Tarola, Mathew Carey, Debbie Kelly and Haley Stuk – some of whom have been with SMA for over 20 years.
