We have been in the second hand business for 35 years. We can appraise anything of value , we also have a long list of local buyers of all categories to assist in the process. Hello my name is Joel BurtonThis is my story. I come from a family of Pawnbrokers. My father is the oldest out of 4 brothers. When I grew living with my parents my father was a coin collector and owner of an antique store and so I've always been around the collectible business. One of his brothers started a Pawn shop in Tacoma Washington and as a child I used to go to the pawn shop with my father and sit in the corner on a stool and just watch everything going on soon I became part of sales in helping out more and more as time went on. My dads brother wrote the first pawn shop software in washington state to run his pawnshop. Soon he became the president of Washington State Pawnbrokers Association and helped other pawnbrokers in Washington utilize his software after 35 years of being in the pawnbroker Business he had 40 pawnshops in Washington state running his software program. At the age of 30 I started my own pawn shop in Grand Rhoned Oregon connected onto the end of the grocery store. I lived in Salem at the time and commuted back and forth for a few years. After that I decided to move the pawnshop to Salem because that's where I live and started another pawn shop call Cash Money. It was very successful we were there for 13 years. We closed 2014. Then in 2017 reopen a new pawn shop on Lancaster Dr in Salem called Rare Fines Jewelry and Loan LLC . In 2018 I started Rare Finds Estate Buyers and Services the two business go hand in hand.
