It’s hard to juggle life’s activities while trying to maintain a peaceful home where we can recharge from the chaotic world. Watching our clients navigate life using our tried-andtrue solutions excites and fuels me to continue on this journey.

WHAT IS MOST CHALLENGING ABOUT YOUR WORK?

As my children near the completion of college and graduate school, I’m coming to realize that they are not moving back home and I will soon be an empty nester! Each stage of life has its challenges and lessons that help me be a better organizer, business owner and leader in the industry.

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE OR EXCITED ABOUT YOUR WORK?

New construction is an addiction! Design is a passion I think people have or don’t have. Seeing a space transform and come together never gets old.

WHAT IS UNIQUE OR SPECIAL ABOUT YOUR COMPANY?

We are a one-stop shop. We can build the pool, outdoor structure, landscape, lighting, gutters, and fencing. We supervise the quality of the project by performing all of our work in-house.

HOW DID YOU START OUT IN THIS FIELD?

I started in the industry working for a custom pool builder. In the past 15 years I have been a laborer, pool cleaner, service technician, superintendent, project manager, salesman, estimator, COO, designer, and finally, now a CEO of my own company.

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE OR EXCITED ABOUT YOUR WORK?

Seeing my client’s initial excitement during the design phase and then exceeding those expectations. It’s the reason I do what I do. It is the best feeling at the end of the project seeing families spending time together and making memories in the space we helped create.

WHAT IS MOST REWARDING ABOUT YOUR WORK?

The satisfaction of our clients and knowing we gave 100% to make their vision a reality.

ARE THERE ANY UPCOMING PLANS OR PROJECTS YOU CAN SHARE?

WHAT IS UNIQUE OR SPECIAL ABOUT YOUR COMPANY?

The client experience. Once I get to know my clients, their likes, dislikes, and how they want to live, then we can turn those basic details into an engaging experience and create something truly personal. I am providing a solution to a problem, and I want them to enjoy the process.

HOW DID YOU START OUT IN THIS FIELD?

In 2018 I decided to make the jump and go back to school for interior design. I finished in May of 2022, and immediately went out on my own. I’ve been fortunate to have some really great clients thus far, one of whom I’ve been working with for almost a year, on not one … but two homes.

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE OR EXCITED ABOUT YOUR WORK?

I love the schematic phase of the design process. This is where the client and I collaborate on ideas and inspiration and turn them into a tangible design plan—paint colors, fabric, stone, fixtures, and furniture. This is when the project starts to come to life!

WHAT IS MOST REWARDING ABOUT YOUR WORK?

My favorite part of any project is seeing it all come together in the end.

ARE THERE ANY UPCOMING PLANS OR PROJECTS YOU CAN SHARE?

I’m getting ready to start a full remodel on a beautiful Acadian-style home (think A. Hays Town) in Baton Rouge. It’s got a stunning front porch and will be on the market once it’s completed. As far as dream jobs go … I would love to work on an upscale hunting/fishing camp.

WHAT IS SPECIAL OR UNIQUE ABOUT YOUR COMPANY?

The Design Studio provides a true turnkey, tailored design experience for each one of our clients. Our highly skilled and professional staff work closely with our external teams to ensure seamless and successful end results.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE INDUSTRY/BUSINESS?

I have always had a passion for design—not just the aesthetics, but the functionality and organization. I started out in apparel design, but quickly realized interior design was where my heart and path would be.

WHAT IS MOST CHALLENGING ABOUT YOUR WORK? WHAT IS MOST REWARDING?

Staying organized to ensure our projects are running smoothly and our staff is successful—that is definitely a challenge. Achieving balance is my main priority. The most rewarding part of my work is witnessing the joy in our clients’ eyes when we reveal their project to them.

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR WORK?

The final reveals are my favorite. To watch a client experience the journey from vision to reality is priceless! The months or years of design work leading up to that moment make it all worthwhile.

ARE THERE ANY UPCOMING PLANS YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE?

We have extended our design services to be able to seamlessly work on nonlocal projects. I think a boutique hotel could totally be in our wheelhouse. Honestly, I have my dream job, dream clients and dream staff.

Our team makes a direct effort to provide first-class communication while individualizing conversations with customers. Providing a high-quality service experience while delivering effective communication are some of the many things our team does well.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE INDUSTRY/BUSINESS?

Four years of education and playing football at the University of Michigan provided me with unique career opportunities. After moving home, I met with Brian Meaux, and he explained what it meant to be a State Farm agent. I was sold!

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR WORK?

I am passionate about making a difference in people’s lives, whether it is our customers or our team. I love coaching, mentoring, and being able to provide a platform for my team to succeed in business and in life.

Attention to detail and true personal interest in homeowners’ styles—these are hallmarks of the unique service clients have come to appreciate from the entire POSH Exclusive Interiors team.

I am not interested in status quo design. My talent should represent exceptional taste, but also embrace the individual style and habits of each of my clients. This desire to provide the best design possible is a passion that is endless.

WHAT ARE SOME CHALLENGES YOU’VE EXPERIENCED?

COVID, supply chain disruptions, ridiculous excuses! And DIY shows— everyone is a designer until the weekend is over and they realize they are in over their head. My go to comment is, “You don’t know what you DON’T KNOW.”

WHAT IS SPECIAL OR UNIQUE ABOUT YOUR COMPANY?

Our company was founded on courteous and professional customer service. We go out of our way to make our customers feel at home, not just as customers, but as friends. Our framing volume is higher than most other frame shops and we spend long hours at work, but we have a great team to help us achieve success.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE INDUSTRY/BUSINESS?

We started the business in 1993 after our grandfather’s craft store closed. Framing was always the busiest part of the store and we learned the trade while we were in high school. Our dad asked us to go into business with him to open the frame shop.

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR WORK?

We love to share in the memories and stories that our customers bring in. Most items are very personal with incredible stories attached. We get to create lasting and beautiful pieces of art from those items.

WHAT IS MOST CHALLENGING ABOUT YOUR WORK? WHAT IS MOST REWARDING?

The amount of work that we try to do in a short amount of time is our biggest challenge ... we all want things fast these days, so we try to deliver that to the customer.

As for rewards, nothing is better than the smiling faces and happy tears that we see from our customers when they see the final result.

We started as an incredibly small family business in 1999 with only a handful of mixer trucks. Today, we are the leading concrete company in south Louisiana with more than 7 million cubic yards of concrete poured for residential, commercial, industrial, and municipal use.

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR WORK?

Our passion comes from knowing we play a part in making improvements here in Baton Rouge and the surrounding parishes. From our involvement in improving roads, bridges and commercial properties to pouring foundations for our neighbor’s homes ... we take great pride in seeing our product used throughout south Louisiana.

WHAT IS MOST CHALLENGING … AND MOST REWARDING ABOUT YOUR WORK?

WHAT IS SPECIAL OR UNIQUE ABOUT YOUR COMPANY?

Commerce Title was founded 40 years ago and is the oldest locally-owned title company in Baton Rouge. We have 10 attorneys at three locations and are always reachable and ready to help. We pride ourselves on being accessible to our clients … we treasure our relationships and we want to help any way we can.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE INDUSTRY/BUSINESS?

Calvert started abstracting at the courthouse during law school and eventually accepted a job at Commerce Title shortly after graduating. For Niki, it was a total accident of fate. “I was working in a small business litigation firm and Commerce Title was a client,” she says. “ When they had an attorney leave, they offered me the position. It’s been almost 22 years.”

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR WORK?

We are super passionate about home ownership and as such we’re long-time supporters of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge. Niki has handled their title work for 20 years and Calvert serves on their board of directors. It’s a real inspiration to help make people’s home ownership dreams come true.

WHAT IS MOST CHALLENGING … AND WHAT IS MOST REWARDING ABOUT YOUR WORK?

Buying or selling a home can be very emotional, especially when someone must sell or buy a home and they don’t want to. Real life events happen—a job transfer, divorce or selling a family home after the loss of a parent. These are tough situations, but we try to make it as easy as possible. As for the rewards, it’s always great to help someone reach the American dream of owning a home. Handing over those keys is a great feeling!

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE INDUSTRY/BUSINESS?

Before Lions Landscaping, we worked for a corporate landscaping group and saw firsthand the high demand for this work. We have always been hard-working individuals and wanted to have our own business so we could use our skills to help clients bring their visions to life.

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR WORK?

Knowing we can constantly create beautiful landscapes for our clients to enjoy, and seeing the smile on their faces when the job is done. This career gives us the opportunity to remain creative and constantly come up with new ideas. We love that this work is ever changing.

WHAT IS MOST CHALLENGING ABOUT YOUR WORK?

Our RE/MAX Professional office is amazing. We continuously rank as one of the top RE/MAX offices in the state in addition to ranking as one of the top offices across brokerages within the Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS. More importantly, our office is a Miracle Office because of our donation commitment to Children’s Miracle Network.

HOW DID YOU START OUT IN THIS FIELD?

When I was in another profession, my father, Jim Rutledge (a REALTOR at the time), often said that I should be in real estate. I finally listened to him and got my real estate license, and am so glad that I did!

WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE OR EXCITED ABOUT YOUR WORK?

I think God put me in this position to help people. My clients are typically going through a season of life change—becoming empty nesters, moving because of a job change, or selling the family home where they grew up. It can be very emotional and I love having the chance to make the transition a little easier.

WHAT IS MOST REWARDING ABOUT YOUR WORK?

There are so many rewards …. it’s hard to pick one. The chance to make a positive difference in the lives of clients, which in turn allows me to support Children’s Miracle Network … is a double win.

I’d love to someday teach a college-level real estate class and/or first-time home buyer’s class. Many college classes offered today focus on finance topics related to the real estate industry, but that’s it.
