Worldwide Art Resources and Design, Inc.

Craig and Diane Bell
Petoskey, Michigan

Owned by husband and wife Craig and Diane Bell, Worldwide Art Resources and Design, Inc. (WARD) offers interior design services and a retail store specializing in home accessories, fine china, world class fabrics and furniture, fine leather, bath and beauty personal care, lighting, and more. 

The previously leased two story building became available to be purchased recently. It was an opportunity to own the facility and secure a long term presence in a prime location in downtown Petoskey. WARD will continue to occupy the first floor and lease the second floor as a residential unit. 

By taking advantage of the SBA 504 Loan Program, Craig and Diane were able to take advantage of the 20-year fixed-rate financing with only 10% down offered by the SBA.
