One of the successful pawnshops that I recently opened for a client in Detroit was purchased for a major television show.

Iam very proud of the fact that what I set up was good enough for Les Gold and his great show, Hardcore Pawn, which is on TruTv.


Q. Do I have to have a background in Jewelry?
A. No. If you know what you are doing, it’s easy. Even my teenage daughter found it easy and simple to understand.

Q. Can I open a store in any state?
A. Yes, I know all the laws.

Q. Is your training on site?
A. Absolutely. I want your business to run perfectly.

Q. How long does it take you to train us?
A. Approximately two weeks to one month.

Q. What do you charge for your services?
A. I would love to create a profile to see what needs to be done so I can provide you with a cost estimate.

Q. How many employees can you teach at a time?
A. As many as you have.

Q. I do not know anything about gold or diamonds.
A. That’s why I have to be there. I will teach you, hands-on.

Q. How much does it cost to open up a pawnshop?
A. Again, I would have to take a profile of what you want to do, as well as consider other individual factors. One area where I can show you how to reduce your opening cost is to get your initial inventory for free—yes, for free!

Q. What happens after you train us? Can we still call you if we have any questions?
A. Yes, you will have unlimited access to me at any time.

Q. I own a jewelry store, but I want to start operating a pawnshop.
A. No problem, it’s easy. Contact me to get started. If you have any questions please call me at 619-540-7189, but please remember, this is my cell phone and I am on Pacific time.
