Very friendly and talkative. I have been there on several occasions and am amazed at the great service. I usually get there before he opens and on each occasion he has invited me in. Very fair and knowledgeable. Is always willing to give you a straight up answer and answer your "Dumb" or at least my dumb questions in plain english. Gives good prices on silver buillion and eagles. Best I have found so far in portland area. We also sold him some scrap gold jewelry an received a very fair price for it. Highly recommended.
