Great Customer Service
I had a fantastic experience with Sheereen Ali at Verve. No question went unanswered and she responded to everything in a really timely manner. Super friendly and helpful for a first time buy too! Good package offers and always willing to help. A really pleasant experience.

Sheereen has been excellent throughout…
Sheereen has been excellent throughout our buying process at Strata Verve. We haven’t moved in yet but so far it has been smooth sailing, with outstanding communication and service at every stage.

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!

Strata - Verve
We've recently just completed on a house on Verve in Glasshoughton. Sheereen has been brilliant with helping us with the purchasing side of things and Ali has been just as good with the handover and aftercare. Would definitely recommend buying on this development with these two ladies looking after you, they've made everything so easy and stress free Laura & Scott

Verve site phase 2
Sheereen at the verve site in Glasshoughton has been amazing so far in our journey. We have reserved a plot for the beginning of 2024 and any queries or questions we have had have been answered in a timely manner. We can’t wait to move forward in our journey to our forever home ❤️

Strata Verve
Since Sheereen has been involved in the purchasing of our family home, we have experienced nothing but professional, informative and friendly help and advice! Sheereen has been responsive to emails and made our journey with strata an enjoyable and stress-free one. As for site manager Ian, no ask is too big or too small. He has provided us with several methods to contact him and responds to communication swiftly, often getting the job done that very same day! What more can you ask for! Like Sheereen, Ian knows exactly what level of service we like and come to expect from Strata and we feel like we have had a very bespoke service / experience throughout! This is our second Strata home and would highly recommend moving with Strata to any of our family or friends!

A great experience
We reserved plot 118 in November 2020 and from start to finish was an easy journey thanks to Sheereen and Strata's legal team. We got our keys in February 2021 so everything happened quickly and on time even though covid was still on the scene. Sheereen helped us every step of the way. She was always friendly, approachable and happy to help with any of our queries. We felt we had a lot of support throughout the process. We moved into the property gradually and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the build... we have found strata to have nicer finishes than some of the other new builds we have been in. Ian the site manager was always on hand and happy to help or point us in the right direction. Our snag list was completed thanks to Andy and we are extremely happy with our new home.

Assisted Selling Plan

A bespoke selling plan for homeowners

The Assisted Selling Plan is designed to help homeowners climb the property ladder. As part of the scheme, we will organise the sale of your existing home, making sure you receive the best possible price. This will allow you to reserve your new home with us.

We will create a personal selling plan, including a review of the property market in your area and an agreed sale price for your home based on two independent valuations.

We will work closely with the nominated estate agent to arrange all viewings and enquiries. All offers will be presented to you, and our Customer Experience Manager will guide you through the negotiation process. 

Once you accept an offer we will track the sale of your home, while you start planning for your brand new one. If your chosen home is ready within a four-month period, we may offer to buy your existing home in part exchange.
