As a First time Metal’s buyer Brandon and Steve made my experience very easy. They Explained the buying process from start to finish and made sure I understood everything we were doing. Brandon and Steve are both extremely knowledgeable and know their products. I would definitely recommend them to a friend. Marlyn
I was extremely happy with my experience purchasing gold at AdvantageGold. I worked with Finis ** and he made me feel extremely comfortable. He was very thorough and explained the entire process as well as strategies and pricing for purchasing gold. I will definitely return to buy my next batch of gold.
I have worked with a handful of investment companies but never found a company that presented and fulfilled their service with such a wonderful human aspect. Life presented me with several challenges related to my family and both Marc and Jared where there with me through it all. Once all settled Marc listened to each question I presented and took time to answer each of my questions in terms that I was able to understand. I feel that I was cared for like a loved family member. I also know I can call Marc should I have a question or concern and that I will get a call back SAME Day! now this is rare. Thank you for all that you do and for genuinely caring. Understanding each person's unique financial situations and end goals can be challenging for us, but I think you've got great insight because you lean in with your heart. Also something we do not see with other companies.

In my quest to protect my retirement I became interested in purchasing gold. I filled out an application to get additional information and was introduced to Mr. Marc **. Not knowing anything about this process, Mr ** patiently explained how the market worked and answered all my questions. Even after the initial purchase was completed and I wanted to take my personal savings to buy additional metals, Mr ** advised me that to use my savings in this way was not wise and I should accumulated additional funds and not invest my "rain day fund" in metals at this time. He could have convinced me but his honest and concern for me personally which to me was worth its weigh in gold. No pun intended (smile). When I am ready to purchase additional metals I will not hesitate to work with Mr ** and the Advantage Gold staff in the future.
The experience working with Advantage Gold was outstanding! Having no knowledge of precious metals, Mark took the time to share his expertise and and break everything down for me so I would understand and get the overall picture. When I was later transferred to Jeff to process my commitment, he also took the time to reiterate what Mark had said and he walked me through every step of the way ensuring that I fully understood the process behind this financial move. I am thankful for Advantage Gold and especially thankful to both Mark and Jeff for this amazing opportunity and for educating me on making a financial move that will benefit my immediate family's future and for generations to come. Thank you Mark and Jeff for your expert guidance, professionalism, patience with answering my many questions, and for your genuine care. I am so excited and confident about the future now.
I retired a few years ago and started living primarily off my IRAs. I had a financial advisor who helped me establish what I thought was a good investment strategy. Over time I lost my confidence in how the strategy was working and decided to manage my own investments. One of the issues involved bonds. It seemed like bonds lost money, just like stocks, when the market made a major adjustment… and they took longer to come back. I didn’t understand how they were providing me protection.
I responded to an ad by Advantage Gold. Finis ** contacted me and has worked with me since. He set me up with the ‘Gold is a Better Way’ book and Investment Guide. He prompted me to get involved with the Advantage Gold Website, Webinars and Platform. I am very impressed with Adam **. He seems to have answers for some of the holes in my investment plan. I decided to invest in some physical gold. Finis was a great help to me. He was patient with me as I learned the process. I will be digging deeper into the concepts I am learning. I will recommend Advantage Gold (and Finis) to my confidants.
Kirill ** is fantastic! He patiently worked with me on a self directed IRA that I had neglected sitting in cash with a 3rd party custodian. He practically hand held me through the process of transferring the IRA to Strata Trust for more comprehensive benefits. He took care of all the logistics of getting this done. He answered my questions and concerns on gold and silver products and recommended online sites to get better informed on these assets. Kirill listened carefully to my wishes on how I wanted my IRA invested and his pick of Gold and Silver coins was the perfect fit for me. The care and attention to detail that Kirill and Advantage Gold extended to a small investor like me, is the first in my experience. I would most definitely recommend Advantage Gold and Kirill ** to any investor.

Never did this before, but I followed Marc **'s lead, and ended up with a successful rollover IRA. Marc projected confidence, and he was saying things that I had already known to be true. I accomplished my purchase, I'm still standing, and we are still speaking with one another. And I'm learning a lot. Thanks. George **

Steve and the whole Advantage Gold team have been helping me understand the how and the why to buy gold and silver. The education has been easy to understand and very detailed. I feel like I can make a good decision when I'm ready. Thanks again!
Brad ** was very knowledgeable towards the metals market, which was an area of the market that was very new to me. He was always willing to go the extra mile to help me out in the best possible way. Looking forward to continuing to learn about precious metals through Brad in the future.
I decided to roll over my IRA, and was looking for a gold company to help me. I spoke to several but, when I spoke to Advantage Gold I knew I was in the right place. My experience with Advantage Gold was great. In particular, it was great to work with Michael **. He is a true gentleman and was very helpful every step of the way.
