This was my first time buying metals and Blake held my hand the whole time. It took me several months to decide what I wanted to do and Blake was so patient with me. He would send me articles to educate me as well during the process! Excellent service. Looking forward to buying more metals.

I had the pleasure of speaking and working with Michael ** in opening a precious metals IRA. He was excellent at walking me through the step by step process. Once that was set up he discussed the different metals with me and answered all my questions.

The process couldn't have been any easier. He was very efficient and informative. I also spoke with Griselda ** and Monet **. Everyone was so kind, professional, helpful and knowledgeable.

The whole process was effortless from start to finish. It went smoother than I had expected by far. They even helped with some information on some of the metals I was considering, directions, trends, that sort of the thing. I plan on using them to add to my IRA and adding some metals to the safe.

Griselda was so very kind and patient with me (a crazy old lady). She went out of her way to make sure everything was as I wanted and needed. Brian was very wise in getting the metals I needed.

They were there to help at every turn. I truly appreciate this group of people. I feel lucky to have found them. Sincerely Helyn **.

My husband and I decided to invest in precious metals for the first time and Orion made us feel confident and secure in our purchase. They took great care of us both.

Their guidance and knowledge about the industry gave us the assurance we needed. The service here is praiseworthy.

The team at Orion made my move of my 401k to a precious metal 401k very easy. Jacob is very professional and helpful walking me thru the process.

I feel better knowing my retirement savings are in gold and silver now. The stock market is a scary place right now my opinion of course.
