Debra Weisz, owner and founder of We Pay the Max Jewelry Buyers
Sponsored by We Pay the Max Jewelry Buyers
Debra Weisz has a passion for jewelry.
It all started 20 years ago when she moved in with her mother, who had colon cancer. As a form of therapy, Weisz started going to garage sales and buying jewelry. After her mother died, Weisz started selling the jewelry for a profit, and her business was born.
She began her professional journey at the American School of Jewelry in Broward County. She is also a certified diamond grader.
Her business, We Pay the Max Jewelry Buyers, is licensed and operates throughout Palm Beach County. She offers to go to your house free to provide an on-the-spot appraisal.
“The most important part of what I do is that the individual feels safe about me coming into their home,” Weisz says. “In today’s world you have to be very careful who you let in your home.”
We Pay the Max buys all types of jewelry. Vintage or costume, high end or low end, Weisz will go to your home for a free appraisal. She says that being in the comfort of home makes the situation less stressful for a jewelry owner who is going through a rough situation and needs to sell.
Weisz also gives back to the community. In May she donated $33,600 worth of jewelry to the Debbie Rand Memorial Service League through its thrift store.
“It is through my customers and their ongoing support of my business that I’m able to donate back to the community,” she says.
The money is going to the Boca Raton Community Hospital, which has special importance to Weisz. The money will be used for televisions for the imaging department, audiovisual equipment in the education center and sound machines for the Marcus Neuroscience Institute. Weisz is especially proud of the work of the Boca Raton Community Hospital, where she continues to volunteer.
Before the jewelry business, Weisz was a nurse for 35 years, and she still does some nurse consulting on the side. She is also a master personal trainer. Her husband, Tracy, works in aviation. She has two daughters, Stephanie and Katie, and two grandchildren.
