“You Got A Guy”

There are many people who do not understand the function of a “Ticket Broker! Often they think of these people as “scalpers” who are out to get as much as they can for a ticket that is in demand. In a way, they are more like investors. The people who purchase tickets as a sort of investment in their business much like a watch or jewelry store carries merchandise in hopes they will sell it for a profit. In the case of these brokers, they are at a slight disadvantage because unlike w ring or watch, if they don’t sell on a Monday, come Tuesday, they are still available. With event tickets, once the event has started or ended, the unsold ticket has no value ( to anyone).

These are business people, who purchase tickets for events that they feel will be wanted by the consumers and then they “resell” them to the consumer who either didn’t want to wait n line ( in person or online) or did not have the funds to purchase at the time of the sale or for one reason or another just didn’t buy them. Now, as the evnt draws closer, they find themselves wanting to go, but of course, it is a sold out event. This being the case, they turn to the broker, who has already paid out the money ( often months ahead of time) and has had their money tied up in cardboard placards, not earning any interest. They are entitled, as is any business, to see a return on their investment, so we buy these tickets from them. Yes, it is a little more costly, but you can rest assure, they are the REAL thing, unlike some “guy” standing outside the venue who may or may not sell you a printed ticket from his computer that turns out to be a phony.

While there are many brokers in the area, there is one “guy” who always seems to have the best of the seats and at a fairer than normal price. If you have heard that certain shows or sporting events have sold out- never feat, Max is near! Yes, Gold Coast Tickets, will get you in where you want to go and for a more reasonable cost than you might think. Gold Coast believes in turning over their inventory and is not afraid to sell at a lower margin, when the need arises. So, here is what I am telling you “when you have a desire to see a last minute show or sporting event, pick up the phone and call “your guy” at 312-644-6446. You got a guy”! You can also reach them online where you can see what they have for what event at www.goldcoasttickets.com”

Have you heard that “Book of Mormon” is sold out until the fall? Want to get in this week-end? call your “guy”Gold-Coast-Tickets

No tickets for the hot Black Hawks? Make the call- you got a “guy”

Don’t be left on the outside or hearing about the special concert, show or sports game from others- get on the inside by calling Gold Coast- you will be amazed. Over my years of attending almost everything and having people tell me they could not get it, I have found that not only will you find what you want ( and some great seats), you will leave with a smile ( and some money left in your pocket). See you at the theater ( or Cubs,Sox , Bulls, Bears, hawks games!
