And, GoldFellow® guarantees same-day evaluation, pricing and payments to all customers.
Known for providing “white glove” customer service, company executives often man the phones and spend time speaking with consumers.
“The idea to market our services directly to seniors came in response to a particularly gut wrenching phone conversation with a retiree needing to sell her jewelry to pay her electric bill,” explains Gusky. “We realized there were many more seniors out there trying to manage on fixed incomes.”
To begin the process, customers can either complete the form on the website or call the company’s toll-free number (877-696-5346) and sign-up by telephone.
“We are very proud of our new relationship with AARP, an organization that advocates for American seniors and retirees,” said Gusky. “I am honored to have GoldFellow® be an approved advertiser.”
