Livorno - Strata Verve
Purchased a Livorno at the Strata Verve site last year, I am a solo buyer and was very looked after by Sheereen. Even after moving in I’m still looked after by the after care team. Everyone is lovely as well as the community.
5 stars on Trustpilot
Excellent customer service
Sheereen was friendly and helpful throughout the buying process. Sheereen kept me informed and checked in with me frequently to see how things were progressing. Sheereen was available to ask questions and would always answer them promptly. Very knowledgeable- would recommend.

Verve
As a first time buyer Sheereen at the Verve site has been super friendly and massively helpful - quickly dealing with any queries I had. The whole process has been really straightforward and Strata have kept me in the loop on the progress of the build throughout. The house itself is beautiful and I’m reassured that the site team are just over the road if I encounter any issues as I settle in over the next few weeks. Thanks so much!

Outstanding development and my Godsend Sheereen
I am in the process of buying a Seville at the Strata Verve development in Glasshougton. I was deliberating between an Avant home and Strata but after seeing the show homes and the absolute quality of the build, it was a no brainier. I paid my deposit immediately. Right from the outset, Sheereen has been an absolute ⭐️. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her and she is 100% on the customer agenda. Reliable, friendly, obliging and efficient, she is with you every single step of the way. I cannot praise her highly enough. I can’t wait to move into my wonderful new home and when I do, it’s all thanks to Sheereen and the team at Strata. Thank you 🙏🏻

Strata Verve
The experience so far with Strata and Sheereen at the Verve development has been fantastic. As a first time buyer the process has been much easier and straightforward than I expected thanks to Sheereen and the team at Strata. Things are moving along with ease and having picked my customer choices and exchanged contracts, I am excited to move onwards to completion. If you are considering a new build I would highly recommend considering a Strata Home!

Dream home has been just that - a dream
I bought my home back in September 2021 on the verve site. After an initial query led to me realising I couldn’t afford my dream home, I went away determined to save more money/sell my first for more. I managed to do both and in May 2021 I reserved my dream Palermo. I was given an Aug-Oct move in date and was in for the beginning of September. The quality of my home is incredible. I had professional snaggers out and they too complimented the quality of the home; stating that strata are consistently the best builds out of all the ones they go. Sheereen in the sales office was wonderful, she couldn’t do enough for me and still checks in every now and again even though it’s no longer her role. Ali and Ian on site are too amazing. Nothing was too much to ask since moving in and I know I could still contact them if I needed anything. All in all, I’d highly recommend strata to buy a home. Thank you all for your amazing customer service and to the rest of the build team for all of their help too!
