‘’ I definitely recommend this place and will be a repeat customer. Saturday 3/14 was my first time buying silver and I had several questions for Shaun and his wife.

‘’Highly recommend! Shaun and Brandy came out to our house to give us an appraisal. We did a great deal of research ahead of time and contacted several shops. I immediately felt comfortable during the initial phone conversation and within minutes of being in our home felt like we were talking to old friends. Shaun was incredibly thorough and based on our research the price he offered was very fair! Thankful we found Hertels!’’
