I have had a personal connection with Dimmitri since my last purchase of silver rounds. I also sold back my silver snow falcons. The experience was based on an initial counsel to reconsider my idea of selling at a low price that was well received. When I was forced to sell, I was given the respect of my decision and the service was continually excellent. I believe he has a personal touch that makes me want to come back when my situation changes financially. Thanks for asking me for my opinion.
Mark, thank you for your kind words about Dmitri! We're sorry that you had a need to sell at such a time, but we are glad that our team was able to process the transaction for you. We hope things work out well for you in the long run. Thank you for choosing Lear Capital.

I received great service from Dimitris, who is a nice family man. The product received is even better than what was expected, as was the packaging it came in. Thank you very much. We will be returning customers, hopefully at some point in the future. I look forward to watching the price of silver, and seeing some appreciation on my investment.

The service was excelent - Lev & Brian. Everything was explained to me with specifics, and I felt confident that I was dealing with people that knew what they were selling and gave me the oportunity to ask any question about my transaction, and for sure next time that I wanted to make another purchase, I will call them to do so. Also, the coins were sent inmediately, and without any delays. I don't have anything else to say, so I will say the same thing, I am happy and ready to do it again when I decide that I need to buy more coins.

I had a great experience dealing with Lear Capital. Being a first time buyer with any company of this type I needed everything explained from beginning to end.

I felt that the percentage charged by Lear Capital was a too high. I do understand that profit is the motivation but a company should think about repeat customers. The more money that goes to the customer’s commodity as opposed to Lear capital the happier the customer and the likely hood that they will make another purchase and refer others increases! Therefore bringing in more profit.
Aaron, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We truly desire to serve you well as a customer. Would you consider having an open and transparent conversation with our customer care team about your transaction with a breakdown of costs?

My experience in dealing with Lear Capital has been extraordinary. Most of that positive experience is thanks to Morrey, he answered all my questions and concerns, and is an all around great person to speak to. Highly recommend him personally to anyone wishing to do business with Lear. Ask for him if you can, he's a cut above most people you may encounter in any other type of business and he is a friendly, personable and extremely knowledgeable person who is very accessible.

Lear walked me through the whole process. From start to finish. I had a ton of questions, and they were patient and knowledgeable. They did most of the leg work with my former 401K servicer and made the process hassle-free. I can add to this account at will and make it a good hedge against my current classic 401K.

My experience with Lear Capital during a purchase of silver coins was a surprisingly easy process! I have never purchased metal of any kind before.
