Ben's Raving Fans!

"Throughout the entire process (which ended up being close to a year-lo..."
Shoby M., Zillow.com, 5/31/16
"Throughout the entire process (which ended up being close to a year-long search), Ben was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He took my complete lack of real estate knowledge in stride and answered (honestly and candidly) every dumb question I could come up with. His knowledge of fair pricing, co-op requirements and my personal wish-list saved me precious time in narrowing down apartments that I even wanted to look at in-person. When I fell in love with certain apartments, he was supportive but pointed out specific problems and explained potential points of concern; at no point did I feel any pressure to make an offer that wasn’t perfect. He was engaged, proactive and always available when I reached out. His enthusiasm and positivity kept me in the market even when some initial offers didn’t work out. In a market where great apartments are often sold even before they make it to the first open house, Ben was able to put together a very competitive offer. He kept in constant communication with the selling agent and provided critical advice on improving my offer in the 11th hour that ended up winning the deal. Ben and his team were invaluable in helping me through the co-op board approval process. From the get-go, Ben was great at managing my expectations around timing, documentation and other board requirements. The dream team of Ben and Cortney made putting together the board package seamless and efficient. I was able to simply email them documents and they took care of the rest. Next came the board interview. Ben did a mock interview running through a list of potential questions. Imagine my surprise when the actual interview questions were almost verbatim what Ben had talked me through. As I responded to those questions I was now so well prepared to answer, I couldn’t help but chuckle thinking that the man is clairvoyant! Like an experienced captain, Ben expertly navigated me over the uncharted (and sometimes turbulent) seas of Manhattan real estate. His passion, integrity and operational efficiency made him an absolute pleasure to work with. I recommend him unreservedly and wholeheartedly!"

"Ben Willig genuinely loves what he does-- and that is only one reason ..."
Lou B. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig genuinely loves what he does-- and that is only one reason why he is so good at it. He is also incredibly motivated, honest, organized, responsive, flexible and supremely knowledgeable in both the NY sales and rental markets. When Ben closed the deal for my roommate and I on our top choice rental, we were out of town on vacation! He showed up and closed the deal on his own. Legend also has it that he even took a Sammy Sosa-style home run swing and trotted around the bases in my lobby once he closed the deal. He has since assisted a number of my friends in their searches and all of them have had the same experience. Highly recommended."

Natalie O. 3/25/13 Yelp.com
"Apartment hunting is stressful, but Ben Willig and Jimmy Fernandes made the experience as seamless as possible. I met Ben four years ago when he found me my first apartment in the city. I had such a great experience that first time around, I knew if I ever had to move again, Ben would be my first phone call. Once again, Ben delivered. He also introduced me to his colleague, Jimmy, who was instrumental in finding me my most recent apartment. Ben and Jimmy showed me several quality options within my budget, and did not get frustrated when my search criteria changed a couple of times. They were extremely patient, and invested so much time and effort into my search. Ben and Jimmy are not just great brokers, they are great people. They truly care about making sure you have the best experience possible, and end up completely satisfied with your new apartment. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family, or anyone else who is looking for a new home."

"Ben was a pleasure to work with. He stayed within my price range and within the areas of the city that I expressed an interest in. Ben was always available by phone or email and made sure to always give me his undivided attention. "

"We were visiting New York from Philadelphia and had two and a half day..."
Kamal R. Zillow.com 2/10/14
"We were visiting New York from Philadelphia and had two and a half days to look at 1-2 bedroom condos. Ben who was recommended by a friend greeted us at our hotel, before check-in and showed us several properties throughout the city for two days. The initial search was based on a list of possible properties that Ben had preselected with our feedback on Agentfolio. In order to use our limited time efficiently, Ben provided a driver and had prearranged our itinerary with appointments at various properties. Ben''s knowledge of NYC gave us a good feel of the prices, architecture, amenities and safety of each area. Ben is a good listener and readily modified what we saw on the second day based on our first day''s experience. The final half day involved returning to our favorite condo in the financial district. Within 5 days we had an accepted offer. He then provided assistance and guidance through the condo application process and within a month of our initial search we were condo owners. At our request he also provided useful suggestions for possible lawyers to use at closing. Ben was attentive and thoroughly professional throughout the process. Without his experience and guidance I doubt whether we would have found our condo and would certainly not have been ushered through the process so efficiently. I feel that no one could could have done better. We would definitely use his services again should the need arise. "
