"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. "

Bruce R. 2/7/13 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig and Jimmy Fernandes . . . remember those names because they are worth GOLD! I am an Architect from Santa Monica and needed an apartment in Manhattan for my daughter and myself. There are a lot of fine realtors in New York, and a few who treat you only as a paycheck. Ben and Jimmy will be my go-to referrals and friends in NYC. We were staying in a temporary apartment while searching for just the right place. We had very specific requirements including, among other things, my insistence on safety and easy transportation to and from my daughter's school. We also had other specifics which made a couple of brokers give up, not so Ben and Jimmy. They were always positive and reassuring and I truly believed they would find the right place for us, and they did! I can honestly say we would not be happily living where we are now without them . . . period. I've been in the service business for 30 years and these two people, Ben Willig and Jimmy Fernandes do all the right things to treat them like GOLD."

Nancy H. Zillow.com 4/13/16
"I was referred to Ben from multiple friends who had worked with him during their apartment search process. He was highly recommended due to his skill, knowledge, professionalism and ability to execute and deliver. My experience working with him has been nothing less than perfection. I had searched on my own for months before I had my first meeting with Ben. I thought I had a good knowledge of the real estate market, but boy did Ben open my eyes to so many things I could not have known on my own. During this first meeting, Ben listened attentively to all my ideas and preferences and gave me his honest viewpoint and opinion of what I should expect during this search process. He took the time to explain many things about the real estate market and process that I had no knowledge of previously. He did not rush the meeting and instead offered to explain and walk through things as long as I needed to get comfort and feel prepared. I sincerely appreciated how thoughtful and patient he was from the get-go. I was under a rushed process as I had to move out of the rental apartment, and Ben worked closely with me and stayed on top of my process. During the entire search process, he was always available, full of energy and accommodating. He dedicated countless hours sending me listings online, viewing properties in person together, and discussing ideas over email. Ben''s skills became even more apparent to me during the contract negotiation stage. There were two things that stood out to me - 1) his ability to connect with others and create a harmonious environment for both parties to reach a good outcome, and 2) his depth of knowledge which ensures that he won''t miss a beat in representing you as his client. Ben was able to convince the seller to reduce the listed purchase price by over $40k and secure a fast process - I signed the contract within a month after my first meeting with him. That''s an incredible speed and discount in NYC. The rest of the closing process was seamless. He was instrumental in getting my co-op board package together fully and accurately to insure no delays with the closing process. This takes a lot of coordination and a lot of paperwork to go through. Ben has an amazing team that supports him and helped me stay organized and punctual during this process. Because of his meticulousness and professionalism, we stayed on top of the schedule and closed on time. This whole process could have been stressful but instead Ben made it the most fun process ever. I highly recommend him to all my friends without hesitation. Ben - thank you for giving me a place in NYC to call my home. "

Dina S. 1/17/14 Yelp.com
"This review is for Ben Willig. We started our apartment searching journey with Ben 5 months ago when our friend referred Ben to us. Ben is the most patient and the least pushy real estate agent I have ever come across, who has a tremendous knowledge and connection in the real estate market in Manhattan. We just closed our apartment today, and things went so smoothly and stress-free, it''s been incredible. Ben respects your opinion, advises you to put in the best purchase price (from your standpoint) and helps you to find the best value apartments. When we were comparing a few apartments, he actually recommended the lower-priced apartment to us, and I was quite surprised he actually did that! This is all because he puts a client''s interest in front of his own - which is a rarity these days. and we cannot thank him enough for all his and his team''s (Andrew in Ben''s team has also been tremendously helpful) support and guidance. We actually referred a couple of our friends to Ben and we look forward to continuing our relationship with him. "

Meg S. 1/24/13 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig was an amazing broker to work with. I was in a time crunch to find a one bedroom and he not only sat down to listen to what I was looking for, but delivered quickly. He listened to my preferences, altered his search accordingly, and found an apartment within days. His whole team worked fluidly and efficiently and made the process much easier. I highly recommend Ben and his team to anyone!"
