“Very professional and polite. The first time the wife and I wanted to get rid of gold items that were collecting dust. I contacted a few places as anyone would normally do and discovered this business. Sarah was the representative we dealt with, and after listening to the other associate (Cass) that was helping another customer it was soon realized that they were very up front and made a person comfortable and not feel intimidated by their knowledge. In our opinion it would be obvious that this is where we would go in the future as well for these sorts of matters. Thank you for the learning experience as well as making it enjoyable.” —Warrick Pitt, Google Reviews
