Tracy Hains
Founder & CEO, Allied ASID

‘It’s incredibly fulfilling to develop long lasting relationships with our clients, team and partners, by doing the right thing, always!’

Tracy’s storied career began outside the home industry where she spent 15 years in Human Resources. That foundational experience influences how she guides Che Bella today.

Always a curious mind, Tracy found her calling in the design and remodeling world where she carries both an interior design degree and general contractor’s license. She founded Che Bella in 2005 to help homeowners create a home that is beautifully their own. Tracy’s vision is to deliver exceptional designs with the highest possible standards accompanied by warm personalized service.

Excessively proud of the team she has assembled, Tracy feels so fortunate to work alongside an inspired and exceptionally amusing group of professionals on behalf of clients whom she truly adores.

He navigates job site hiccups and difficulties that may arise with a cool head, keeping projects on time and on budget with the grace of someone who has seen it all.
