The ERT Advantage

ERT Architects offers an unparalleled combination of enthusiasm and expertise as well as an exemplary portfolio of successful work, including over 700 Cape Cod & New England architectural and interior design projects. With 20 years of experience in both new home design and the renovation of existing homes, ERTA prides ourselves not only on our guiding commitment to excellence, but in providing our clients with incomparable customer service and communication.

While some other firms lag in innovation, ERTA incorporates advanced methods to our design process with the integration of high-tech project support tools. The use of technology allows for overall greater client communication, accessibility, and a greater sense of accountability. We find that this modern approach to a timeless trade allows for a more seamless transition from idea, to design, to finished product.

In the design stage, clients work in conjunction with our principal architect, Erik Tolley, to manifest their visions via in person meetings, telephone and email communications, the exchange of electronic drawings, and online collaboration tools.  For example, utilizing the on-line homeowner’s resource of HOUZZ, homeowners can browse millions of home interior and exterior photos to create an inspired ‘ideabook;’ a personal collection of bookmarked photos which work to better convey your interests and styles. Once created, these idea-books can be viewed simultaneously by both client and architect as a means to easily discuss ideas.

During the build stage we will update your personal, web-based client portal periodically to keep you up to date on the progress taking place, from start to finish. This new and exciting component to our website offers clients secure access to personal project information and updated, customized content. So, whether you reside down the road, or across the country, you can watch the progress on your home unfold with the click of a mouse.

Finally, ERTA has many online social presences including Instagram, HOUZZ, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and all of your favorite social sites. We regularly post and share all of our current and past designs –our clients just love seeing their homes shared with our followers around the world. We also send out bi-monthly email newsletters which feature project updates, design tips and fabulous inspirations.

We invite you to explore our webpage and client portal as well as our HOUZZ profile.

So whether you are building the house of your dreams, or re-imagining your current home, we welcome you to experience the ERTAdvantage.
