FEATURED CLIENT SUCCESS STORY: New 9,440 S.F. Warehouse & Showroom Facility Lowers Costs and Sets the Stage for Growth for Marin-Based Robert Federighi Design

Founded in 1999, Robert Federighi Design provides interior design, remodeling, and staging services for high-end homes in Marin, Sonoma, and San Francisco counties. The company’s goal is to impart the very best of design concepts and service, with integrity in every aspect of its operation.

Mr. Federighi’s business had been leasing multiple warehouse spaces in Marin County which was definitely not ideal for his thriving, fast-moving staging business. When the largest of the three warehouses was sold, Mr. Federighirecognized that his rent was about to increase.

Capital Access Group worked with Mr. Federighi to secure a $1.5 million SBA 504 loan for the purchase of a 21,000 square foot warehouse located in Novato, CA. The new building will replace all three of his leased spaces. According to Mr. Federighi, the new facility will stabilize occupancy costs, streamline operations, and increase efficiency.

“By owning the new building, we fixed our expenses, so we can continue growing while controlling our spending,” said Mr. Federighi. “The mortgage payment on the new building is less than we currently pay in rent!”

Mr. Federighi also plans to open a showroom to give his interior design department the space it needs to sell high quality furniture.

“Working with Capital Access was a smooth, easy process,” said Mr. Federighi. “I highly recommend them.”

Featured Client Success Story: Repeat Customer, Park SFO, Leverages SBA 504 Program to Expand Parking Services for Airport Travelers

Park SFO offers a unique approach to airport parking by providing its customers with a state-of-the-art, indoor parking facility along with the highest levels of customer service.

Park SFO received financing through Capital Access Group in the past, so when presented with a chance to purchase a new, 24,000 square foot facility, they turned to Capital Access Group again.

Park SFO was attracted to the 504 program’s low interest rates and reasonable down payment, and they turned to Capital Access Group again because of the “professionalism” and “high level of service” provided on their first project. Park SFO also appreciates the way Capital Access Group “acts as an advocate for the client,” according to the Park SFO spokesperson.

Park SFO’s business model is based on the hospitality industry’s approach to providing excellent customer service. They provide their employees with extensive training programs, which equates to high quality jobs for Park SFO employees. The new project will create approximately 30 new jobs for Bay Area residents.
