Testimonials About Midland


“As I have had experiences with several IRA custodians in the past 20 years, I speak with experience when I say Midland IRA has risen to the top of my list! The professionalism, courtesy, and promptness in response to my needs and questions have far exceeded my expectations. They have presented themselves to me as a team and I appreciate the ability to get my questions answered even if my “assigned” rep is unavailable. Thank you to all at Midland Trust, especially to Ryan and Emily, but also to those of you who work “behind the scenes” to assist in getting your clients to the right department to get their needs promptly addressed.”


“I am a new client with Midland Trust. I have had excellent service and all my needs, concerns, and questions are answered quickly and professionally. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing their services.”


“Midland is great – they allow me to make non-standard investments in my IRAs for a fair and reasonable fee. Usually, these types of asset purchases in an IRA are not permitted by many custodians, or if they are, you need a ridiculously high account value, and the fees are still excessive. I’ve found Midland employees to be responsive, and get things done in a short timeframe when it matters the most. I recommend them to anyone looking to make outside-the-box investments in an IRA.”


“Their knowledge of self-directed IRA is absolutely amazing. I have two IRA accounts with them and I know I’m in good hands. I have no interest in going back to traditional IRA investment/custodians.”


“Over the past nearly two years I have had a number of IRA-related investments in private companies handled almost flawlessly by the Midland Team. They are responsive, knowledgeable, and courteous. I can recommend them without reservation!”


“All transactions with Midland have been flawless, even some of the more complicated real estate transactions. They’ve been a pleasure to work with, and glad I made the switch to Midland years ago.”


“I have been dealing with Midland for many years and have always been completely satisfied with their service. I highly recommend Midland for their services.”


“The team that processes my bills, distributions, etc. are very responsive and professional. I can put in a request at 8 am and by 10 am or sooner, the request is processed and in play. Great service!!”


“I have been impressed with the service and people. This is a great tool for making my retirement money work for me. I am currently looking at buying a house on an online auction and Midland representative was able to discuss the process with me and I feel comfortable about what needs to be done. I don’t have any suggestions for improvement.”


“The process was handled efficiently and with high responsiveness. Communication was excellent. Rare to have this sort of customer experience.”


“My phone experience was great. Midland representative was knowledgeable and confident in her answers”
