About Gold Buying

About Chicago Gold Jewelry Buyer

My name is Mike J., owner of Cook County Buyers Inc

Gold Buyers

I started this business back in 2011 buying scrap gold jewelry but I have been involved in the jewelry business my whole life. I decided that I could do a better job than the corporate gold buyer stores, or local pawn shops and have grown into a top choice in Chicago land for individuals looking to sell their items. Everyone claims to pay the most when its time to sell gold, diamonds and other estate jewelry, but I can actually deliver because I have zero employees, a very small office, and minimal expenses.

Learn How sell gold

I work on an average profit margin of 15% to 20%

This translates into a higher payout to you, the seller, meaning if I pay you $1000 for your gold, when I sell it to the refiner, it will net me around $1150 to $1200 depending on what happens to the price of gold. Most buyers would need to pay much less for the same amount of gold in order to cover expenses such as rent, employees, and other major overhead costs.

Another advantage to selling gold and diamonds to Cook County Buyer, Inc.

You get to work one on one directly with me, and I will explain exactly what your item is worth and guide you through the process without any rush or pressure. Rarely is a seller given an opportunity to sit with a knowledgeable buyer and have all of her questions answered and her items evaluated right in front of her, ending with a cash in hand payment.

My policy has always been upfront honesty and transparency

You can call Cook County Buyers and describe the item you want to sell and receive an approximate price quote right over the phone. Usually sellers are simply told to come in for a price quote. The problem is, no one really has time to drive from dealer to dealer looking for the best deal. Mike understands this and is willing to discuss over the phone and try to give you an idea of your item's value.
