    An extremely friendly professional experience is best way to describe my becoming a American Hartford Gold Group customer. From my first inquiry about owning precious metals to beginning my transfer from stocks to precious metals was smooth and most assuring that we were making a sound investment decision. Each member of American Hartford Gold Group treated me with respect, explaining clearly how the process would work in purchasing precious metal assets through completion of each transaction.

    I had a favorable interaction with every team member, each went out of their way to ensure I understood what action we were taking and what to expect next. Fully explaining how the transaction would flow, where the precious metals would be held and how the interactions with the entity would work. Very satisfying and reassuring experience to say the least. I would highly recommend working with American Hartford Gold Group when looking for an excellent move into precious metals, you will find a knowledgeable and committed team to provide you a top invest experience.

      11/2/2021. With the huge, out of control government deficit spending, I decided it was time to protect my retirement by buying precious metals with my Traditional IRA. My research for gold and silver came down to American Hartford Gold and I am very glad it did. As a first-time buyer, I called and talked to Dan S., a seasoned veteran with the company, who made me feel at ease right away. There was absolutely no pressure, only information on what to expect and how he would walk me through the entire process. Dan did everything, he told me he would do and made the whole transition painless and very easy. For the record, I recommend American Hartford Gold, for anyone, considering precious metals. Thank you, Dan S.

      Sincerely,

      Steve M

      I had long thought about investing in precious metals but my financial adviser said I would be better advised in investing in metal mining stocks. With the inflation looming, I decided to take the plunge. When looking for a source for investing, I decided on Hartford Gold because a close friend recommended the company. I placed a call and was immediately given all the necessary information and paperwork needed to move a portion of my 401k into precious metals. The move was easy and in addition I was assured of buyback when and if necessary as well as receiving $500 in silver for being a new customer. I would certainly recommend Hartford Gold for your precious metal investment.

      This is the first time my wife and I bought gold and silver. We are very pleased we bought from The Hartford Gold Group. From the main website, to Scott who opened a request for us, to Andrew who explained our purchase options, to Candace who confirmed that we understood everything we were purchasing and that Andrew and Scott explained everything clearly to us, we have peace of mind that will not be taken advantage of. Because of this experience, we TRUST The Hartford Gold Group and will recommend them to family and friends! You have good people in your company. This is hard to find these days.

      Sincerely,

      John and Eugenia

      I decided to secure my retirement from the current economic environment with precious metals. Everyone at American Hartford Gold were extremely professional and knowledgeable. I want to thank Steve in helping me transfer funds from my TSP account to my Gold IRA, he made it very easy. From there Kyle ** and Spencer assisted me in procuring precious metals for my Gold IRA Account. They were very knowledgeable and I learned a lot, especially from Kyle. He explained the importance of diversifying in metals and why I needed bars and coins. He also explained the storage and insurance of my assets which will put you at ease knowing that they are secure. Finally, Candace was very thorough finalizing my transaction and ensured that I got all the paperwork for my records.

      Thanks you all,

      Rob

      First time buying gold and silver. Looked at several companies before choosing Hartford Gold. Both BJ ** and Thomas ** were both helpful in helping me to make my my decisions on what products to choose. I recommend this company highly. I feel they are upfront and honest in their dealings.

      The whole buying experience with HGG was very satisfactory. Daniel helped me to buy exactly what I needed and it was a pleasure doing business with him. Would recommend HGG to anyone interested in buying precious metals. They come through with the goods.
