    American Hartford Gold was recommended by several conservative people like Roman Balmakov. Daniel ** has been helping us transfer my IRA to a precious metals base. He answered a multitude of my questions patiently and knowledgeably. The transaction was finalized today, and I am confident that I have made the best choice for my IRA with Daniel's help. I will recommend Mr. ** and American Hartford Gold to my brother.

    Everyone I spoke with was very helpful. Eino answered any question I had and was great at following up with me without being overbearing. He called me as soon as my money got into my account so we could get started. Wally was very helpful and explained the different options for investing. I took his recommendation on what to invest in. I look forward to doing more business in the future.

    Original review: Feb. 3, 2022

    I responded to an email promotional offer from Hartford yesterday, and when I called Tyler ** answered and explained the promotion and the steps needed to proceed. Tyler suggested I send payment into Hartford via wire yesterday for the quickest service to process my order, so I immediately went down to my bank and wired $25K per his instructions. Hartford accounting dept received my wire yesterday 3 hours later, but Tyler stated he could not contact me back until this morning. Tyler contacted me back, and proceeded to inform me that whatever I ordered today would take 4-12 weeks for delivery. This critical detail should have been disclosed to me YESTERDAY when I made my initial call into Hartford, not after I already sent in my $25K wire with the expectation of my order being processed in a much quicker timeline than that.

    Tyler made no mention of Hartford's fulfillment timeline when we spoke yesterday, and if he did, I promise you that I would NOT have ordered through Hartford and went with another provider. These coins I ordered were intended for my son and daughter's birthday and due to Hartford's excessively long fulfillment timeline, my kids will not be receiving these coins on their birthdays. Instead, Tyler quickly brushed over this critical detail as he read his scripts, until I questioned him the delivery timeline. Instead of Tyler acknowledging this error, he quickly backtracked and went through a litany of industry standards and personal rebuttals that were quite offensive. While he was making these statements, he began chuckling on several instances which were condescending and inappropriate. He came across like I am idiot and should know how his company operates and how the industry operates.

    When I asked Tyler why he was chuckling as to why I needed to comply with his recommendation of treating the transaction is if the "metals were in my hands" and that I needed to wait an excessively long time for the metals to arrive "in my safe", he continued defending himself. When I told Tyler that he should have disclosed his fulfillment timelines to me BEFORE I wired my money in, and that it was inappropriate to giggle at my concerns, it was that time I asked to have my funds returned.

    After I hung up with Tyler, I realized this is probably his style of selling and he was not going to change how he comes across to potential clients and I did not want to pay for 3 wire fees (the wire to Hartford, the wire back from Hartford, and the wire going out again to another provider) and have my funds go from bank to bank.

    I just wanted to finish the transaction and hopefully speak to another representative who can clarify things more fully, and was more upfront in Hartford's policies. So when Tyler called me back to confirm the refund, I demanded to speak with someone else who was more clear and not so condescending. He put me in touch with Danial, and Daniel was great to speak with, clear, concise, and spoke to me principal to principal in a courteous fashion. I consummated the order with the Daniel, and I appreciated how Daniel spoke to me and the incentives he offered. If it was not for Daniel's conversation, I would have followed through with the wire refund, and went with another provider.

    All I wanted was the free silver coin I saw advertised. I’ve decided instead, after speaking with a fairly intelligent representative to open a Gold and Silver IRA with AHG in order to preserve the value of some more of my investment. There’s also a bit of pirate in me that likes the idea of having a semi hidden treasure chest. I’m grateful for Daniel **, the knowledgeable representative that helped me think this decision through, and feel confident that I’ve made a wise choice.

    This is my first experience purchasing gold & silver and I really didn't know what to expect. I really appreciate Kelvin's help in choosing the right mix of precious metals for my portfolio. I believe he really has my interest at heart! Also, Johanna responded very fast with a follow up call to confirm the metals that were chosen for my account. Both Johanna and Kelvin helped me to feel comfortable through the process. They confirmed to me that I am with the right choice doing business with American Hartford Gold. I look forward to working with you guys in the future!

    Appreciated everyone who dealt with me in the process of conducting business, were very informative in explaining the process and what I needed to do. Converting my work IRA into Gold IRA, then having to convert a traditional IRA into a Roth IRA. This process took time but everyone was patient with me as I tried to understand the process. Thank you all for your support.

    Thank you for making the process so easy. I recently rolled some funds from my 401K to gold and silver. I have always been nervous about doing this, but knew it needed to be done.

    If you have a 401k from a previous employer, you should consider converting that cash to precious metals. This is what I did after learning about American Hartford Gold from Roman at the Epoch Times. The staff at AMG are superb professionals that meet you where you are and provide all the information you need. Ask for BJ or Machi and you will not be disappointed!

    I have been working with William ** and Joe ** at American Hartford Gold for the past six months trying to explore investment strategies in this unsteady economy. Both Bill and Joe were excellent advisors taking time to explain all of the pros and cons of investing in precious metals. They were knowledgeable and patient while helping me to make my decisions. I felt no pressure at any time and I really felt like these guys were trustworthy. My portfolio is looking great and I would 100% recommend American Hartford Gold and Joe and Bill to help with your precious metal transactions.

    After calling other Gold companies, I met Ron with American Hartford. He was more helpful than any other person I connected with to date. He has educated me, was extremely patient with all of my questions and new understandings, and he has provided excellent service. Ron is very fast to respond to any email questions and is a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't want to work with anyone else.
