The Story Behind Berkshire Asset Lending: Your Luxury Asset Lender
We have been experts in the jewelry and lending industry for three generations. Our family business started in Chicago over 50 years ago and quickly grew throughout the Chicago area. I opened my first pawnshop in 1982 called American Pawners and Jewelers. We expanded to Arlington Heights, a northern suburb of Chicago, and launched Abby Jewelry and Loan.
All three of our children attended Arizona State University and it didn’t take much to fall in love with the desert. We decided to make the move and opened our first store in Tempe called The Gold Guy-Cash for Gold. We have developed a large and loyal following throughout the valley by offering quality, integrity, and personal attention to our customers. In 6 years, we have earned the reputation as Arizona’s largest gold and jewelry buyer. Many of our customers needed cash but did not want to part with their valuables forever. We decided it was time to get back into the jewelry lending business and we launched Berkshire Asset Lending, the luxury asset and Collateral Loan lender.
Berkshire Asset Lending is located in an office environment rather than a store front to provide a secure and confidential personal experience. We want all of our customers to feel comfortable in our friendly office whether they are looking to borrow $500 or $250,000. In order to achieve this level of privacy, we must schedule appointments so that every customer will be given the personal service they deserve. Appointments are scheduled with either Larry or Justin, the owners. Both have been GIA certified and have extensive experience assessing the value of jewelry, diamonds, watches and coins. Because we have been in the industry for over 50 years, we have established a large network of buyers across the country, allowing us to pay or lend more on your upscale assets.
At Berkshire Asset Lending, we understand that trying to get a loan from a bank is often difficult and time consuming. We offer a unique financing option of using your upscale assets as collateral. We can provide you a short term 90 day loan immediately. If you need more time, simply pay the interest, and the loan will be renewed for another 90 days. You can do this as many times as needed. We are licensed and insured, so your valuables will be safe and secure at all times.
We know you’ve worked hard for your assets; now let your assets work for you. Contact us today to discuss your financial needs and let us tailor a plan that works for you.
We hope you will give us the opportunity to assist you with your financial needs.
