Episode #0064 Racheal Hageness’ Journey from Hospitality to Residential Design

Featured in this week’s episode of The Productive Designer, host Crystal Collinson chats with fellow interior designer, Racheal Hageness.

Racheal is a creative professional with proven success in high-end residential design and hospitality design. Daughter of a successful construction business owner and a wildly creative mother. This proud Midwesterner has been around construction and interior design all of her life. Racheal continues this family tradition with nearly two-decades of award winning luxury environment design under her belt.

Racheal started out in this industry in hospitality interior design. Then, she shifted to high-end residential design. This switch has helped her to become a well-rounded interior designer by ensuring that the property is aesthetically beautiful, and personalizing each individual residence she works on.

She states that the goal of hospitality is to make everyone feel at home. Her business emphasizes the importance of providing a high level of service. Involving the homeowners in the planning and the operations will ensure that your design complements their way of living without compromising the functionality of every custom piece in their homes.

Racheal’s business model has always been to empathize with clients’ individual needs. She wants to assure them that their homes are not someone else’s but their own. And though Racheal has a team supporting her, she wants to be the main person of contact with her Clients. Building solid client relationships is her top priority which is facilitated through her exemplary level of service. 

So join Crystal and Racheal as they discuss her journey from hospitality design to a residential design. Then, “Do something today that your future self will thank you for” and put a little more time into building your Client relationships.
