Original review: April 16, 2019

I recently went through a horrible experience in my marriage. I spoke with several representatives regarding this experience and to a man and a woman, they all sympathized and empathized with me and were all supportive. Supportive in not just words, but I’m actions which to me represented what a great culture Birch Gold has developed within their own company. It dawned on me that this was why I decided to partner with Birch Gold about 2 years ago to secure my financial future. It wasn’t just words, rather, it was ACTION!

Any other financial institution wouldn’t have paid any attention to my plight, but Birch Gold took an immediate interest in this plight and offered what I now know and always suspected was a human and personal interest in this plight and offered to help me in any way they could. This told me how real and human they are. I was NOT just another account number, but I was a real person to them and I can’t find the words to describe how much that meant to me as a person rather than just another account number. I can not recommend them more highly to anyone considering partnering with them for their financial and personal future. I want to specifically praise Stuart and Natalie and Cynthia for their empathy and support during this time of stress. Thank you, thank you and thank you again for your empathic support. Very sincerely, Martin

In response to my inquiry, I received a phone call from a representative seeking to understand what I was interested in doing with my investing and why I was looking into gold. Believing he could help me, I was provided materials on the program and told a service rep would contact me soon. Before that call, a customer service person helped me prepare the forms due to a rollover from my retirement account. They took all the info, prepared the forms, and took care of processing them after my signing. The service rep took an hour to really go over my goals, and discuss how the program could meet them through various precious metal purchases. Once my selection was firmed up, I got a confirmation email.

No one should have to worry about converting some or all of your investments or retirement funds into precious metals. Birch Gold Group carefully walks you through it step by step with competent counseling that also listens carefully for your goals. As you make your decisions, the reps act promptly to get the administrative side accomplished. My whole interaction from initial contact to finalized purchase took only a week, including the funds rollover. I had an excellent experience with the company and would highly recommend Birch Gold Group to anyone looking into precious metals, especially people unfamiliar with these assets and needing trustworthy guidance.

In this case, as it is my first experience with them, or precious metals in this form, I can offer nothing for comparison. Additionally, I can not speak to any returns as of yet, but I'm hopeful for the future. What I can speak to is the easy of setting up the account. The initial purchase. And the customer service. On all these points The Birch Gold Group have exceeded all expectations. In a world where customer service seems like a by gone thing, passed forever to the ages of time, it is quite refreshing to find a company that actually takes care of their customers. In addition to the information package they sent me, they assigned a specialist to help answer any questions BEFORE I even opened an account. This team quickly returned my phone calls, answered any questions I had, and provided any additional information I requested very rapidly.

Then after I decided to go ahead with a purchase, the service continued in better stride. They continually provided me with updates as to the process and progress begins the scenes, handled all the transfer requirements, and provided constant tracking on the status of the funds location. As a military member with over 21 years of experience, followup is huge. Several times I had it on my calendar to followup on the statuses and before I could even call in they had already contacted me. That is extremely rare. Kinda eery, but much appreciated.

The purchase of the metals was easy and thorough. The representative contacted me and even though we had several issues to work through at first, entirely due to events on my end, they contacted me every time at our scheduled time. The conversation was very thorough lasting over 40 min, was absolutely no pressure, detailed, and at the end we came up with a strategy that I feel takes my best interest and goals in heart. It definitely wasn't a cookie cutter approach and was very tailored. I would recommend this service and company to anyone looking for this type of investment. If you read all of that and are still here, thanks, and best of luck!

Original review: June 6, 2018

I had been looking into rolling my pension into a SDIRA. I was new to the idea and the process. With the declining state of the Central Banking System and watching other pensions evaporating, I was urgently looking to move mine into something with historical stability. I had tried to set something up with two other organizations, but never really had that 'warm & fuzzy' feeling that I was of importance to them. Having been the customer support manager for the Americas for a tech company, I have a firm belief in how a customer relationship should be created and maintained.

Thankfully, I found Michael ** and Tracie **, both at BitIRA.com. Tracie did a wonderful job explaining and carrying through with the IRA setup process and Michael proved equally adept with coordinating the fund assets rollover to precious metals (Birch Gold) and cryptocurrencies. I was kept up to date at every step of the way, with clear explanations for and followup throughout the entire transition. These two are people-centric, doing their company and partners proud!

Half ounce American Eagle Gold Proof - I was apprised of the product in a previous purchase and kept it in mind for gifts to my grandchildren. My younger grandchildren have plenty of toys and the older grandchildren are difficult to buy for on their birthdays. Giving them gold would teach them a valuable lesson in saving and investing, while retaining and increasing value over time. Purchasing proofs would allow them to examine the coins without damaging them. The minimum purchase at the Birch Gold Group required that I purchase a number of coins at one time rather than one at a time; however, they retain their value and potentially would increase in value and I have five grandchildren.

Purchasing them locally proved difficult. They were not carried in inventory and the vendors showed little interest in ordering the coins. Two of the birthdays were rapidly approaching and I needed to have the purchase and shipping of the coins expedited. After explaining my situation to the Specialist assigned to me, funds were transferred, the order placed and the shipment arrived in a short amount of time. The coins arrived in individual containers suitable for gift giving. The coins were in perfect condition with certification of their quality. I am hoping to continue this practice and expect that acquiring their own "wealth" at a young age will make them feel special.

Hello Russell, we're pleased to hear that your experience was good, and hope that your grandchildren enjoy the coins!

Birch Gold made it easy to transfer my current Ira to their gold IRA. I tried doing it with another firm and all they did was send me all the paperwork to fill out. Birch gold walk me through it all online and made the Investments that I wanted in the precious metals that I wanted. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to make the change.

I've heard only good things about Birch Gold Group, and I was brand new to this type of investing when I contacted them. But they took the time to explain the in's and out's of this asset class, and made sure that I was comfortable every step of the way. I'm certainly excited to do business with them for the foreseeable future.

My wife and I wanted to invest in metals and had no idea who to ask. We talked to friends and family with no more information to help. I was watching BEN and He used Birch so I called, they were very informing. I then talked to other Gold Companies and realized Birch Gold Group was to be Trusted with our purchases. We are very pleased and will do business with them again.

This was my first experience purchasing precious metals. Samuel and Brock were the two men who assisted me through the entire process. Both were very well educated in their job and very helpful. As a first timer all my concerns were answered, and I feel confident I made a great investment. They focused on my needs and their advice was oriented around my particular situation. It was all for my benefit. I was taken seriously, treated respectfully, and I honestly enjoyed the whole experience! It was fun to work with them and I learned a lot. You will have no regrets when working with Birch Gold Group. I have no reason to look for a different provider in precious metals. I will always recommend these guys! I will be a future and loyal customer. Thanks Sam and Brock for the experience! You guys rock!

Everything I ordered came in beautifully... My only comment or concern is while the volume of purchases is high...being able to reach my company representative is critical. He was most apologetic for the time delay. Also, I did not receive a tracking number so was completely unaware of when I could expect my delivery. Overall...dealing with this company does produce the desired outcome, and I will be recommending this company to my interested friends.

Being a novice at precious metals for an IRA Roll-over, I tended to procrastinate my decisions in the process. The staff at Birch Gold never pressured me, but they did keep in touch all along the way to answer any questions that I may have had. When I finally did reach a decision, the process was very smooth and without any hard sales pitch.

I've always been interested in diversifying my portfolio to include precious metals. I heard about Birch Gold on a podcast and so I decided to call for an information kit. Since that time, I have become well informed through my conversations with Birch Gold agents/representatives and they handled setting up my account. My confidence regarding the purchase of precious metals has only increased because of Birch Gold knowledge of the markets. I highly recommend them if you are interested in learning more and eventually purchasing.

Do your due diligence. I wanted a gold IRA during the Obama years as I was concerned with the US dollar. I explained my concerns to the rep. We had a long conversation about this matter and the state of the economy, the US dollar, etc... In the end, the rep convinced me that buying proofs was the best way to go. I now know that purchasing proofs completely contradicted my concerns. They were not concerned with my interest, only their own. I was too trusting with the rep and should have done more research on what I was investing in. I have lost over 50% of my original investment. I would avoid doing business with this company.

I did considerable due diligence before I invested with the Birch Gold group and my working with them has confirmed I made a great choice. The people there really understand customer service. The consultants are knowledgeable and are eager to discuss/answer any questions. I would specifically like to compliment Sheldon **. I have been impressed with his quickness and effort to respond. I have confidence in him. I trust his knowledge and experience. It has been a pleasure discussing current financial affairs with him. I will continue to increase my investments with Birch Gold. Birch Gold and the people I know there receive my highest recommendation.
