Client Highlight — Albert’s Pawn

Meet our client Albert’s Pawn, a family-owned business that has been in operation through four generations with four locations in the Tri-Cities of Tennessee. The Albert’s have a rich history in East Tennesse.

History – Four Generations

Albert’s Pawn is named after Albert Rothbart who started Albert’s Loan Office in Johnson City in 1927, and he operated it for close to 50 years until he passed away. Albert’s daughter, Harriet Rothbart Luster, was the next owner along with her husband, Rufus Luster. Together they operated the business over the next twenty+ years. Enter the third generation, Marcus Nachman, who is Albert’s eldest grandson, who bought Albert’s Pawn and is currently managing the business. The fourth generation of management is Marcus and Patty-Jo Nachman’s son, Zach Nachman. Zach is the Operations Manager.
