The best company. I had a great guy and women help out well.
I was impressed with the ease of how everything went so well. I felt like I had known Bruce for years. He was very cordial & super helpful. I also spoke with Gina & she helped me as well. Could not have asked for anything better.
Richmond ** made our silver purchase very easy. He walked us through the process step by step and made the experience very pleasant. He is great to answer any questions that a novice like me has. We will be lifelong customers of Lear Capital!

Craig's was very helpful and I was very satisfied with the entire purchasing process. I wish I had moved earlier, when he suggested, and I would have saved a great deal of money. The price of silver rose as he had anticipated. Craig followed up and kept me informed on the process and tracked the order. I expect to do business with Lear Capital in the future.
I choose silver to invest in because its use in mfg. + Other industrial use! Derek was very helpful in assisting me choose the correct amount of silver & I am pleased with my investment with Lear Capital!
I was referred to Lear Capital by a friend when I expressed a desire to purchase some precious metals. I worked with Tom **, a senior account representative, at LEAR Capital and was very pleased with every step of the process. Tom patiently educated me about the best approach to take and the values of different precious metals in which I expressed an interest. Everything was shipped on time and as promised. Overall, it was a very satisfying experience and I would happily refer any friend to Tom and Lear Capital in the future.
I had a very satisfactory experience with Lear in my silver purchase. The purchase was easy, and the silver arrived in a very timely manner. I would be most willing to deal with them again. In fact, I intend to.
I had a good experience with Lear capital. John ** was very helpful in selecting product and was very diligent in notifying me on the status of order(s). I will use Lear Capital in future metals purchases.
This is my first experience with precious metals. It was to convert my thrift plan to precious metal. Dimitri and Mike explained everything in order for the transaction go smooth and see that I had some knowledge about precious metals.
As Administrative Assistant to an investor, it is always a pleasure to work with the staff at Lear Capital. We have been treated with absolute respect, dignity and courtesy regardless of our concerns. Lear takes time to inform and educate their clients so as each decision made by the client is truly an informed transaction. We have previously worked with a handful of other investment houses lacking the skills and concern we receive from Lear Capital. We have happily cultivated both a business and friendship with those we have worked with. Lear Capital is to be commended and recommended for their professionalism and standards. I have recommended Lear to many others and will not hesitate in the future.
Overall the experience was very good. The only exceptions were very inaccurate processing estimates: the time clear my check, the time estimate to ship, and the delivery (transit) time all were very different from what I was lead to believe. I will certainly do business with Lear Capital in the future.
I enjoyed the order visit with Dana. This is all new to me and the wife. We converted a part of our savings to silver and gold. We are afraid of bank closure due to the huge debit. Dana helped us out. To save our savings. Thank You Dana.
I will order again. The experience was a pleasant one that worked well for me. Being able to complete the entire transaction electronically is very important to me. The process is always just as expected with no surprises. If anyone should ever asks about a recommendation for a broker of precious metals, I would submit Lear.
Pat was very helpful. Felt like talking to a friend. The entire team we dealt with were very knowledgeable and professional. Callbacks were very timely with complete answers. The process was simplified by the timely help, step by step, when it came to filling out transfer forms. It was very obvious that the person helping us was familiar was the process, not only at their end, but at our end, also. Overall, a very pleasant experience.
I was very happy with my purchase from the information inquiry, the timely delivery of the information requested, to the order, and timely delivery of the order. (Unfortunately silver is down in price right now.) I will recommend Lear Capital to my friends.
My experience with Lear Capital and Tom ** was wonderful. Tom was very patient with me. He was willing to wait while I found out important information about what I needed from this purchase. He was also very friendly and kind and continued to be that way through the whole time he was working with me.
I am very pleased with the order of coins I purchased. The gentleman I placed my order with seemed to go out of his way to make sure I understood all my options. He was very knowledgeable which gave me peace of mind. The coins were outstanding. I will return when it's time to purchase more.
Gary, I am presently out of the country so I do not have my order number. But I can truly say that you were most helpful and the entire experience with Lear Capital was first Class. As McArthur said, "I shall return".
I have dealt with Lear previously and had an outstanding transaction with them. So, I decided to once again reach out to Lear for my purchases of precious metals. I dealt with Terry who was just super. I am very satisfied with my purchases and feel very comfortable with my purchases. I will recommend Lear to my friends!
This was the Third or fourth time I have purchased from Lear, and they make it easy to do business with them. The person I worked with was very helpful and gave me the options I needed.
I'm pretty satisfied with the overall experience. The conversations with Charlie were informative and confidence inspiring. If there is anything of concern since I made the purchase, it'd have to be a close to 30% charge for the service. I realize that to stay in business, you must make a profit, but the amount seems a little excessive. That is not going to make me scratch you off my list, however. I'm presently thinking about how to liquidate my 401K and still maintain most of what I have saved.
I order silver coins several times a year. Always an easy process with great communication from start to finish of the ordering process. I will buy more in the future from Lear Capital. Also I have recommended Lear to several friends with their precious metal needs. Thank you for your continued great service.
Snow Falcon purchase - Mr Peter ** was very helpful and patient in helping me. As a novice, I needed a lot of help. I would certainly call on him again and on Lear Capital whenever I plan another investment... Everything went very smoothly just as he said they would. Thanks!
This was not my first purchase with Lear, but was equally excellent in the care with which Craig ** answered my questions, processed my order, and made sure everything went as planned. Lear Capital is an outstanding company with thoroughly professional account executives and world-class customer service.
Factual basis uncertain
I believe your employee called it a "Bait and Switch". We discussed the spread and I believed that we had agreed on 2 to 3 percent for gold bars. Another employee called and started with another term that I believed meant spread at about 7 percent. I mentioned that we had agreed to 2 to 3 percent. He then told me that it would be 3.68 percent. Then he launched into recorded verbal contract. I had never realized it would be verbal business contract. In fact the first employee and I had discussed me signing the invoice and I thought that it would be a written contract with the signed terms and conditions that I had earlier signed and returned and the signed invoice. That does not seem to be the way it turned out and I never would have agreed to verbal contract of business transaction of this size.
I then mentioned that that part of the funds that were paid earlier indicated that a Minimum Required Distribution for 2016 of $13,336.70 was included and I would like to receive that in coins. Then everything went very sour. He quoted some prices that were not even reasonable. I kept telling him that the MRD was not part of gold bars agreement but I'm not sure if he understood. I am not sure if I have some coins coming or if they have gone to depository. The prices he gave me for coins seem very high and unreasonable. I would like to receive the money for the MRD and not the coins. I think I can get a better deal on the coins. I am very uncomfortable with the whole process and would never have agreed to a verbal contract. I would still like to get an authorized individual to sign the invoice with me, along with the other documents that I signed as the contract.
I was fortunate to be connected to William ** on my first call to Lear. During that call and subsequent calls he has always been very generous with his time and counsel. I have confidence in his recommendations.
My wife and I are very pleased to deal with Joanne. She is patient and explains things very well. She tells us both sides of the story and doesn't try to sell us something we don't want. We plan on a doing a lot more business with her. Thank you very much.
Alex who is my advisor for Lear Capital has been very good on providing great service and important information to help me made a sound decision on purchasing precious metals. I would highly recommend Alex to my friends.
