I am very happy with my experience with Lear Capital. Every person I spoke with was very knowledgeable about the products and answered my questions thoroughly and quickly. I never felt pressured and they were very patient with me as this was something I had thought about doing, but needed to feel comfortable with the decision. I am. I would recommend Lear Capital to others needing to diversify their available funds.
My recent purchase and rollover of my old IRA was something that I had been thinking about doing for a while. After contacting Lear Capital and receiving the information packet Kelly contacted me and helped me make an informed decision on my best options. I would like to thank Lear and Kelly my account rep. for a pleasurable experience.
Our representative answered our questions directly and succinctly. He did not in anyway "sell" us anything and not for one minute have we doubted or regretted our initial investment with Lear. We are now planning our purchases for 2018.
My husband Jerry ** and I were much surprised at how easy Jarrod ** made our buying experience. We knew very little about precious metals until Jerrod answered our many questions with ease and knowledge. We are very happy with our purchase and with Lear Capital. We would definitely recommend your company to family and friends. Thank You.
I used to buy precious metals at a trusted local jewelry store but since Lear Capital has been helping me set up a Self Directed IRA to store my gold and silver coins I am using now Lear Capital as my primary source of buying precious metals. Craig is excellent in customer service. I finally have found a friend to assist me in wealth reservation with precious metals.
I'm always very pleased with Lear Capital. They are really a good group of folks to work with. They will look for great deals, and won't ever pressure you to buy something you don't think you need. My most recent purchase was very convenient. Being a repeat customer comes with a few advantages, I recommend it. I enjoy collecting gold and silver and use it as an small pool of my overall investment strategy as well as peace of mind if the time ever comes that I need to trade the coins in for other items of value. Overall all the coins I've order are very beautiful and have great luster.
Cal was very helpful. Took his time. Answer all my silly question. Made my transaction go very smooth and I felt relieved. Look forward to doing business with Cal again very soon. Thank you again for your patience and answers.
My most recent precious metal coin purchase was the best one I have ever done. I had a great interface with Dana there at Lear, and I felt very comfortable with the purchase. I feel that Dana was extremely knowledgeable as well as informative and professional with me. I feel that I got a good deal, too. I will definitely plan to purchase again from Lear - thanks to Dana.
Your personnel are very good in providing the type of service expected for the industry you are in. You have dedicated and responsible personnel (Derek) and I am very appreciative for the effort he made on my behalf.
I have already recommended a friend (Brett **). I believe he has already made a purchase. I am very satisfied with the process at Lear. No sales pressure, No hassle. I buy silver every time I get a bonus, raise or extra windfall of any kind.

Before I canceled my account I wish the person I talked with would have told to me hold on till I reach 70 1/2 years of age before taking it out. I decided to put it back and then was charged over $200 to reverse my decision. The prior guy (Blalock) did me wrong. I would have been ahead if I keep it in gold from 2007 up to this time. Look at the history report and you will see what I mean. Sometimes I think I should have gotten an attorney and fought for the money I've lost with Lear Capital. That would have put a black mark on Lear for bad dealing with me and who knows who else. And getting one silver coin won't get back the lost. Have a great day.
I called to purchase $50,000 in $1.00 American Silver Eagles, Alex tried to sell me half dollars and I made it clear I wanted Silver Eagles. In the recorded conversation he said very quickly American Walking Liberty coins and I did not catch it. 15 minutes later I received a email where it listed Walking Liberty half dollars. I immediately called Alex @ Lear and also emailed him clarifying I wanted the $1.00 Eagles. When I received the order it was the 50 cent 90% silver coins (AKA JUNK SILVER).
The value was almost $20,000 less. I called Alex and he said Silver is Silver and that 1/2 dollars were worth more because there was double minting on twice as many coins, and I told him to send me what I wanted. I spoke to Jeramy ** and he would not Exchange the coins or refund my money. I then found in their contract page 4 par 1: says 1st time buyers have 5 days for refund, however Jerramy never told me this on the recorded conversation. I did get my money returned but these guys are SHYSTERS!!! Stay AWAY FROM THESE CROOKS!!!
I ordered approximately $500 in silver coins as an investment. The coins were shipped promptly and were packaged very nicely. They were high quality coins. I would definitely buy from this company again.
I bought Silver Canadian Snow Owl from Lear Capital. Matt ** and his associate Brian helped and explained the different ways I could purchase silver and what were the pros and cons of owning each which helped me with my decision on what to purchase. It was a very good experience working with these two gentlemen.
We were not familiar with what we were doing and your team walked us thru it from start to finish in a very professional manner. Answering all our questions and following thru with assistance with our bank.
If not for the customer care services of Mike ** I’m not sure I would made this decision. The secure feeling he created instantly was surprising. His knowledge and professionalism gave me the confidence to commit my personal resources to a precious metals retirement account and additional personal capital investment. Thank you Micheal.
I have used Lear Capital for the last 10 years and Steve ** has been nothing short of spectacular. We were a bit worried initially but Steven gave us the information, answers and solutions we needed at the right time! Steven's no pressure, client-first attitude has been helping tremendously with our investments in precious metals. We've sent numerous referrals to his extension **.
Account executive most very courteous and professional. Hopefully his vision of the market will prove to be spot on. Any time one invests, it is always reassuring to know you are receiving the best possible input. I trust this will be the end result of my association with Lear.
I was very pleased with my initial contact and guidance. The entire experience was explained thoroughly and thoughtfully. My purchase arrived in a timely manner and I am very satisfied. I would do business with Lear Capital again, and will recommend it, as well.
I have purchase precious metals for the last several years and have always dealt with Jody **. She has always been professional, kind, personable, helpful and a pleasure to work with. She is well versed in the product the represents and delivers NO PRESSURE to purchase. What a nice thing.
I thought Peter ** was friendly and professional in helping me set up my new Lear account. I was also given timely updates on the status and progress of rolling over my existing IRA into my new Lear IRA.
Overall I was very satisfied with the service I was provided during my decision process for my first order of silver ever. The people I dealt with were very professional and tried to answer all my questions. The materials I received were helpful but not specific enough, so having someone contact me finally got me to make a final decision to buy.
I am still not clear on how I can tell what my silver is worth at any point in time. Does Lear Capital have a tool that can be used to value the silver I have? When I purchased my silver I was quoted a price per once and told how many ounces of silver I would receive. What wasn't clear was what I was really paying for the silver (In other words what fee I was paying, maybe the term is premium, since obviously Lear doesn't sell the silver out of the goodness of your heart.) I was told that once I made my purchase I would have access to some kind of tool to help me value my investment. Being more comfortable with this part of purchasing silver will have a lot to do with any additional purchases I make through Lear Capital.
Little did I know my shipment arrives EARLIER than predicted !!!... I ignored the package but my WIFE had signed for it. While chatting with Chris ** of Lear Capital, I decided to open the package with several knives. To my surprise, here is my package of Canadian Owl coins. We were both EXTREMELY pleased and surprised at the very high quality. I will try to do future transactions.
Salesperson was a really good listener and was able to offer appropriate feedback based on my questions and concerns. He was informative, educational, patient and respectful. He took the necessary time to explain many aspects of the process to me until he had answered all of my questions. He never, at any point, made me feel uncomfortable or hesitant to ask questions.
I have been very satisfied with Lear Capital. Peter ** and Eric ** in particular. Peter went to extra mile to explain My purchases to me including fees and ground to hand charges. It took awhile for me to get it but thanks to Peter, I did! Getting a financial institution to release funds to be delivered to another firm is quite an ordeal. It’s very stressful to say the least. Eric made the process much easier. I look forward to doing future business with Lear Capital and the future prospects of my precious metals IRA...
Eric and Gina were fantastic to work with helping me set up my IRA accounts and Todd was outstanding with his explanations and working to make transactions easy and trouble free. I look forward to a long term relationship with Todd and Lear.
As a first time buyer I felt very comfortable with my representative Michael who took his time explaining the metals market and why it would be a positive investment move on my part. Michael answered all my questions and even told me the do’s and do not’s of investing in metals. My first order arrived on time after the easy purchase process in discreet package. My expectations were fully met and exceeded with the storage tubes of my purchase. I will purchase more for future growth!
Very satisfied with transaction, Andrew was very helpful answering my questions and was in constant contact until my coins were received. I plan on doing business again in the future with Lear Capital as I expand my possession of precious metals.
Cal ** was great with whole process. My only concern was all the fees (startup, wire transfers, etc,) was not fully explained, so after account setup and first purchase, I'm over $300 in the hole. I know it is a long term investment, but seeing the first statement and seeing a loss of over $2,000 is a little concerning. I switched to physical precious metals in the hope to prevent this large loss in investment. I do like the promotions when you get a free coin with purchase.
Am pleased to say that the service provided by Derek ** was excellent. Derek has an pleasant enthusiastic phone voice and was very knowledgeable patient and helpful. You are fortunate to have such a fine salesman in your employ.
I would like to thank everyone involved in the handling of my funds. Ted was very helpful. He kept me informed through the whole process. I am very happy to have my funds safe with your service. Thank you!
I had previously rolled another 401K into a silver IRA & was very happy with that transaction so I did it again. All of the people I talked with were very professional, answered all of my questions and put me at ease. I am not a fan of the stock market based 401K & would recommend to anyone to roll some of their plan into precious metals.
I am glad I invested in Lear Capital's Silver IRA. I was given the peace of mind and confidence to know that, just for starts, this will, in time, turn out to be a very prosperous venture. My representative from Lear was very knowledgeable and gave me the right type of investment to start out with. I will recommend Lear Capital to as many people that I can and I am very pleased. I myself will expand my investments with Lear in the near future. Thank You.
Very professional personnel, knowledgeable, they listen to your concerns, and provide clear and concise responses. Will spend as much time as necessary to make you comfortable with your decision to buy or not to buy their product.
I recently ordered precious metals for the first time from Lear Capital. I appreciated the assistance I received from Alex **. He was able to answer my questions and did not pressure me to buy, like some other companies had done. The order arrived in a timely manner and am considering purchasing again in the near future.
