In our latest #MyStrataStory competition we’re asking you to tell us how your Strata story began. Whether you passed by a show home and decided to pop in, or you reserved your home before our Sales Complex was even built, we’re having lots of fun reading your accounts of new home ownership! Here’s just a handful of some of the messages you have sent us so far:
Pippa’s rush to reserve
My Strata story began in the summer when fate led us to finding out about the very last Sassari on the Expression development in Midway
. It was due to be built in the place where the Sales Complex stood so we rushed along and were first in the queue to reserve!
Since then we’ve watched our house grow eagerly; we drive past in excitement each week to see the progress and it feels like we are literally watching our future together unfold. I can't wait to embark on this journey with my wonderful boyfriend and I'm so happy we chose to do it with Strata. We are due to be moving in by Christmas and we are currently saving up money so we will be able to furnish our new home.
Jamie and Ben saving for a deposit
Our Strata story began in July 2015. Ben and I had been looking to save for our own house and wanted to compare the new build market. After persuading the Site Manager at Expression to let us view a near completed Geneva, we knew we had to have one.
Definition at Mackworth
had just started building and when we told the Customer Experience Manager Liz about our saving timescale, she helped us pick and reserve our plot to complement this. With only £20 in the savings account we knew it was going to be hard work. Fifteen months of blood, sweat and tears later we are weeks off moving into our new home.
Liz and the Strata team have been a great support since reservation and we are so excited to get our keys!
Monica’s Pearl obsession
My Strata story began about 3 years ago when my mum and I randomly went to look at the show homes at Identity, Bramley. My Strata obsession began then; I fell in love with the Valencia and knew that I wanted to one day own a Strata home.
My partner and I began looking at different developers last year, and we ended up early-birding a Geneva at the Elegance site in Feb '16. When we went to see the Dominion development in August we quickly changed our minds and decided we wanted to live there. A few days later I went into the sales office and put a full reservation on a brand new house type called The Pearl. And here we are in November, so excited and eager to see the start of our house this month.
