I visited Hartford Gold's website and then I got a call from a Jonathan. I had never invested in any metals before so I had a lot of questions and Jonathan spent time discussing those questions with me. He kept in touch and I was a little bit wanting time to research a little bit more so I’d tell him, “Well, call me in a week or two.” And we’d agree on a date. He was always good to follow back and call back whenever that time was. He also didn’t call before then where he’d give you an impression he was badgering you. And I didn’t have that impression at all so I’m totally happy. We talked about the various options and so I made the decision on which way to go. When the time comes time to do it again I will consider doing it with Hartford.
Hartford Gold Group is an excellent and very caring group. They were the first one that caught my eye and they seemed very intent on providing me the service. From day one, I dealt with one particular fellow who went out of his way to take me through the steps, get me started and handle everything. It’s been close to 10 months now and I also get an occasional email to let me know what’s going on.
It was pretty good dealing with Hartfold's representative but I wasn’t happy with the deal. They called me and I let my husband talk to the guy about whether it should be silver or gold. He decided silver. But it went from 20,000 to 10,000, in silver. The Hartfold Gold Group is not bad but they’ve been better.
The Hartford Gold Group knows what they are doing. I bought gold and an IRA, and the guidance I received from their team was very good. I have recommended them to friends.
Corporate sponsors made me choose Hartford Gold Group. It didn’t have any first-time buyers. Hartford Gold Group's team was professional and answered all my questions. And the guidance I received was very good. I had a good experience with Hartford Gold Group and I'd use them again.
I saw a few good reviews on Hartford Gold Group. I contacted them to set up a precious metal IRA and the interactions with their team were excellent. Setting everything up took two days and I appreciate their professionalism in guiding me through the process. They answered my questions promptly and guided me through what they were going to do and how they proposed to do it. Their answers were clear and understandable to somebody who does not have a great understanding of precious metal IRA.
I first called to get bullion silver bars but was talked into coins? Silver is only down less than 20% from where I first "TRUSTED" Hartford to invest my hard earned money. Hartford said "Oh buy these silver coins and you will be set" but that was a lie because the coins were a scam. Then Hartford switched me to Gold coins to help ease my pain because Hartford admitted they gave me crap coins to begin with. Now it is more than 50% less. I have been scammed!

I had been buying gold and silver in the past and had a poor experience with another vendor. And when I gave Hartford Gold a call, I was fairly pleased with their response. I’ve been working with them for four months and I’ve made several purchases. I called them a couple of times and told them what I wanted. Then they gathered it out to me and left efficiently to my bank. With Hartford Gold, I can pretty much do whatever I want and I’ve been pleased with the way they’ve dealt with me. I would recommend them.
I was a little worried about the bank confiscating my IRA, so I switched over and have it now with gold and silver. Subsequent to that, I also took one of my CDs that was renewing, and I purchased gold and silver for myself and maintain that in my big safe. I had two other precious metal investment companies that bugged me a lot and was not happy with. They kept calling with a different number all the time and that really upset me. But Hartford Gold has always been good. And I felt very comfortable with them right from the get-go.
The Hartford Gold team was not high pressure and they gave me plenty of time to think it over. They set me step-by-step on how I could have my IRA rollover and they were very thorough and explained everything to me, especially when I saw my first investment with the IRA. About $20,000 of it was a loss and they explained that the gold and silver was based on the melting rate and not the purchase rate, but that purchase rate for precious metals would be there and increase. And it's true. I've been seeing it increase.
My husband and I had a couple of IRAs that we wanted to roll over into metals and it worked out fine with Hartford Gold. First of all, with them I could make a phone call and get a human being without being routed through 40 different prompts. When we were setting everything up, their team was very pleasant and friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Then, if there were glitches, they made it right.
There were a couple of glitches in getting our IRAs rolled over from Fidelity. So, there was some time delay and it seemed to take longer than it needed to, like over a month before falling out into STRATA. That seemed to be the biggest problem, but they made it right overall and I’m happy. On their end, Hartford was prompt and knowledgeable in giving us guidance in making our investment decisions and once again the Fidelity people were the ones dragging. But we won’t know until we start taking money out. On the whole, though, our experience with Hartford Gold was great and I would recommend them.
I wanted to move some of my IRA cash into some silver. I looked at a bunch of things on the internet and Hartford's name is familiar. I’ve dealt mostly with their rep Adam and he has always been really nice and very friendly. We’ve even talked about some times when he was here in Colorado and I was in Colorado, and other stuff like that. With everything I’ve ever dealt with, he has always been really good and informative. He told me what he recommends and I just went with his recommendation since I basically have no other knowledge whether it was good, bad or indifferent. I am satisfied with the services I received and I’d recommend Hartford.
I was looking for silver and I found Hartford online. I like their price and the gentleman I spoke to was very cordial and willing to explain. I got very good guidance from Hartford in discussing my options.
I was worried that the stocks were gonna go bad and decided to contact The Hartford Gold Group. Their reps were nice and the guidance I received was good.
Hartford's ad on the internet looked very professional, so I contacted them and talked to a guy named Ted. It was extremely obvious that he was very well-versed in what was going on. He knew the market, and he was so confident about what he had. But he wasn’t pushy. Some of the salespeople wanna twist your arm to get a buy, buy, buy. Ted was a veritable gold mine of information. And with that information, there was no pressure to buy, sell, or do anything. My wife and I like to get the information, pray about it, and then make the decision.
Ted was the most professional, knowledgeable person I ever dealt with. I was impressed with his confidence. He didn’t speak so fast that was like a person that had one too many cappuccinos. Some people are like auctioneers. They got to get all to sell in just a blink of an eye, and it’s hard to understand them. But Ted spoke perfect in speed. I’m hard at hearing, but he was clear and easy to understand.
I had a feeling that the stock market was gonna crash and I looked up Hartford Gold. I liked that they had a good Better Business Bureau and they seemed to have a lot of good things pointing in their direction as far as what people say about them online. When I talked to the team when I bought my precious metals, they were very friendly and answered all my questions in the same day. I would recommend them.
I wanted to convert some cash into metal. I looked up gold and I read on a number of companies. I saw that Bill O'Reilly reviewed Hartford Gold and he said this was the only one he’d deal with. I also looked at the reviews of people. I called and talked to them about a year ago, too. It was a roll in the dice for me and I thought I'd see how it would go. I worked with Jeremy and he was fun to talk to. He seemed to be good and he had his helpers call once in a while and send me stuff. He said he’s been selling stuff for a long time and it sounded like he knew what he was doing. Hartford is an honest outfit and they seemed like they came through with what they proposed. In fact, I got what they said when we started out. I would recommend them to others but I’d tell them to make up their own mind. I’m not gonna tell them what to do. Also, I wrote a review for Hartford Gold and they sent me a Mercury dime for my review, so I appreciated that.
I was interested in buying some silver, and I saw that the Hartford Gold Group sold it so I contacted them. They were really friendly and they made me feel comfortable. They also followed up really good. They called back when they said they were gonna call back and made everything simple for me. I was happy with the product, and things went smoothly. I would recommend them if people were going to buy.
My bank forgot I contributed two $500 checks to my IRA and one day, I got a call from a lady who asked if I knew they had $6,000 of my money just lying around. That money wasn't doing anything for years until I got that call. I pulled it all out. I did my research on companies and started calling and talking to people. I found out how much they knew and I could tell when somebody is in a hurry and wants to get things over with. I talked to a guy who just sent me some papers and wanted me to sign. I read it over before I signed and there was a lot of hidden costs for every little thing, including storage, and by the time I paid all those, my money will be all gone.
Somehow or another, I wound up with Joe and he helped me with everything. I didn't know how to go about buying coins or what was the best thing for me, for the money. He was patient in answering all my questions and explained everything to where I understood it, including how things are gonna go down. The thing that made up my mind was the trust that grew between Joe and I when we were talking. My husband asked if I was sure it's not some kind of scam and I told him we have been texting each other back and forth for a while.
Being leery and not knowing anything, I wanted to know everything. I was scared, but Joe made me feel comfortable. I had a lot of problems with my bank trying to get my money out, but I'm glad I trusted my instincts because I felt secure and I trusted Joe. He didn't flinch when I wanted to go into details about things. He was so helpful and I couldn't ask for anything better. I'm happy about my experience with Hartford. It was wonderful.
I had left my employment with Memorial Hermann who was not handling my retirement account. It was more or less dormant and they just kept my money, so I needed to change. Since my present company doesn’t have anything satisfactory, it wasn’t an option bringing it there. Considering the way 401k goes sometimes, I decided to go with the value that lasts, which is gold. The gentlemen at Hartford are professional people. I see them handling things well and taking time to explain every little detail. I knew that with their group, we’re in for a long crawl but I’m hopeful that in the end, it will all be good. We’re working in faith that things will turn out fine.
I'm interested in gold and I usually buy from local dealers. But at the time, it was really hard to get it, so I looked online. Hartford's presentation really got my attention so I went with them. Their reps were great. They answered every question and they all knew what they were talking about. Also, everything was perfect every time I called them. They still call me to follow up and see what I need and they're very good. I would recommend Hartford to others and tell them that it's a good company to do business with.
I placed a disbursement request almost two weeks ago. They had my phone and email info and claimed that they had tried to call me to get the disbursement going. To my knowledge I received no such calls but I’ve been hit by telemarketers lately so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. Even so, they had my email address and could have easily reached me that way. My funds are quickly running out and I have made 5 calls and one email to the company and have yet to get any response. I deeply regret having converted my money to precious metals with this company. I would have been better off leaving my funds in cash form. My hands are completely tied now when I desperately need their help. It seems that once you convert your money they don’t seem to care about helping you anymore.
The Hartford Gold Group always takes immediate action when we receive notice of a dissatisfied customer. We appreciate you working with our team to help come to a resolution.
The Hartford Gold Group was a family-owned company and had good reviews and rating online. They were texting me ‘cause I was an investor and I called them to ask some questions about those ads. Some agreements that we made sounded pretty solid and their guidance was very good and direct. It took a little while for us to make the purchase ‘cause they were advising on the market and told us to wait a little bit. That was beneficial because when I purchased it, it was quite a bit lower than what it was a few weeks earlier. Also, the person I was talking to was very informative and really cared about my situation.
9000 in silver. They said it was going to go up. It has gone down 2 dollars. I found out it was now worth about 4300. Cut in half for 2 dollars cut in price. Overcharged and very unhappy. I’m 68 a widow and this is my main retirement fund.
We wanted to get some silver and went with Free Lakota Bank. We found out it was a big scam after we lost a couple thousand dollars. I wanted to go with a reputable company. I looked up online and went with The Hartford Gold Group. Joe, Hartford's rep has been very approachable and helpful. It was really good working with him. He told us to call him any time if we have questions. In fact, I’ll call him later on today because we rolled over another IRA into the silver and we have some questions.
My husband is retiring and he came upon the Hartford Gold Group on the internet, and he talked with me about them. We wanted to save money and let it grow, so we decided to work with them. When their reps called, I enjoyed the conversation that I had with them. They explained more things to get me to understand, but I already understood some of them. We were satisfied and we went with them. We placed the money with them and a rep said they were gonna send something, but I haven’t received anything such as a silver coin, although that has been over a month now. Even so, I would recommend Hartford.
I want my retirement funds to be in a more secure place other than my IRA. I contacted The Hartford Gold Group and their team has been excellent. They've been very courteous and friendly. I talked to another company and Hartford's whole approach was different. Several of them had left a different gold group because they didn’t like their ethics. It was scary for me to move funds out of an IRA into gold but they have been very patient and have explained everything to me. They also haven't been pushy, which I really appreciated because that turns me off immediately, and I’ll usually just walk away.
I wanted to diversify and put some of my money in precious metals. Hartford Gold Group was recommended by Paul Mladjenovic, the guy who wrote "Precious Metals Investing for Dummies." I called and they helped me set up the account. For the most part, they were friendly and helpful, and I did like the people I was dealing with. But I felt hurried in the beginning when I was trying to understand the investment and how they value it. Those questions weren’t answered early on and for some reason, the spot price doesn't have a direct correlation to the actual value of your investment.
When I set up the account, I transferred a little over $6,000 but later on, I checked the value with my IRA custodian and it became almost half. I would’ve understood if the spot price had gone down in half. But I checked the spot price and it had gone down about 15%. That was very confusing and concerning to me. I needed an explanation. They were answered but it was later after I had already set up the account. That should have been explained to me upfront. I was also trying to find out if there was a commission involved but I never heard the response for that. I don't have anything against that. I just wanted to know what my cost was. That should have been better explained to me as well. I would tell others to slow the roll and make sure they ask the right questions before committing to doing the full transaction. But other than that, everything has gone smoothly in my experience.
I had been chatting with The Hartford Gold Group for a little bit and then it took some time. But I went ahead and went with the company. A good group of people is working there. They seem to be very knowledgeable and answered my questions. Everything was most excellent.
The Hartford Gold Group seemed to be more persistent and they called me back often. Joe was my rep and he explained things to me as well as sent me information on different things that are related to gold and IRAs. Things are fine and we’re happy with everything.
I was interested in some small investment and saw Hartford Gold Group on the internet. My research indicated that they had a decent reputation. The sales guy was professional and essentially gave me the information that I wanted. After four conversations, I decided to make a small investment. I felt that the guidance I received was reasonable, but it didn't mesh well with the other information that I had. The experience was satisfactory and if I decide in the future that I wanna make more investments, then I'll recontact the group.
I wanted to guarantee the little savings account I had and protect that money so I contacted Hartford. I did most of the process on the internet, and I was pleased with the way it went and that we got it taken care of. I did not spend any more than I planned to so it worked out pretty well. I would tell my friends to go ahead and trust Hartford to help and provide them with whatever they want.
I was looking to invest 401(k) money into gold or silver so I went online and found Hartford Gold. At first, I thought they are part of The Hartford. Nonetheless, the Hartford Gold representative was friendly, explained things, and seemed like someone I wanted to do business with. However, I felt like I got talked a little bit into silver instead of gold. I'm not convinced that that was the right decision yet, but time would tell that. I'd still recommend Hartford Gold.
