Meet the Team

We’re more than just gold buyers – but we sure are dedicated to a fair price and a firm deal.


Paul has been part of the pawn industry for 22 years, and has loved going to work every single day of them.  In that time there is probably not much he hasn’t seen or heard, so if you need an answer to a question, he probably has the answer.  Always pushing to bring the perception of our industry out of the dark ages, Paul likes to obtain new and interesting items, and loves it even more when he finds the right home for them. Paul is almost always kicking around the pawn shop, waiting for someone to talk to.


Micheal has also been in the pawn business for over 20 years. He is our version of “the old man”. He is literally our go to guy when it comes to gold buying, diamonds and jewellery. Whether it’s finding that special piece for someone or determining a fair and appropriate price for your jewellery, Micheal is always ready to help.  Just don’t ask him to smile!! Micheal works A.M shift Mon-Fri and every second Saturday.


Where do you start with Kyle?  He’s from Saskatchewan, and he always wears black. We’re pretty sure those two things ARE related!  Another interesting fact about Kyle is that he loves talking about guitars. He can’t play them, but loves them none the less. Always thought of as very fair and approachable, Kyle is probably the only member of the staff anyone would consider “laid back”. An aspiring artist in the pop -art genre, Kyle works Tuesday thru Sunday.


The newest member of the Loan Star family is Austin. Fresh faced and just out of high school, we have the pleasure of teaching him the fine art of pawnbroking while he begins the second stage of his life. Quick to smile and if you get him talking, he will leave you in stitches! If you tell him you read this bio, he will give you some Loan Star Gifts! Austin is juggling school and work at the moment, so we can’t really tell you his hours, because we don’t really know ourselves.

I bought a ring for my wife here today and i gotta tell you, you couldn't tell the difference between the one I bought and a new one. Except for the price!!!! I paid $950.00 for a half carat diamond ring that I could not find at a retail jeweller for less than $2500.00. You also didn't feel like you were in a pawnshop. Very professional layout.
