A gold or Platinum dealer means they sell and install a lot of systems each year. It does not mean that they are necessarily "better" but chances are they will have a lot more experience than someone who doesn't do the volume that the others do.
I would caution you against one-man shops as many of them tend to come and go. If you ever need any support after the project, it might be hard to get. While they tend to be more responsive, I have seen a number of them go out of business over the years, leaving their customers stranded. I'd ask for references if you haven't already done so.
