"My roommate and I have both lived in NYC for 2 years prior to working ..."
Kate L. 9/5/12 Yelp.com
"My roommate and I have both lived in NYC for 2 years prior to working with Anchor Associates for our third apartment. I could not have been more pleased with Anchor Associates. We worked with both Ben Willig and Andrew Vo- who were both absolutely fantastic. Unlike many of the sketchy realty brokers you find in NYC, both Andrew and Ben took the time to speak with us about what we wanted in an apartment, they were happy to show us many different spaces, even setting aside full afternoons during the weekend to work with us. When it came to signing an apartment they took the time to explain the process and negotiate the apartment price/lease agreement. They did not rush us through the process which many brokers do. After signing our lease, they took the time to check in with us multiple times to see how we liked our apartment, even bringing over home made cookies as an apartment warming gift! Working with Anchor Associates was a great experience, I would (and have) highly recommended them to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC."

Kim M. Trulia.com 8/12/15
"Ben was a pleasure to work with and helped me to find the perfect home in my dream location in Manhattan. As a first time home buyer, I was anxious about the process. Ben helped tremendously to alleviate those concerns and was extremely responsive to all of my inquiries and pushed for a slightly aggressive closing date to accommodate my hectic work travel schedule. He really held my hand throughout the entire experience and went above and beyond more times than I can count. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to buy/sell an apartment in the city."

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. "

Owen H. 9/28/11 Yelp.com
"My two friends and I recently used Ben Willig to find our new 3 bedroom apartment. Ben and his team went to great lengths to make sure that we found the apartment we were looking for. He made the apartment hunting process (which I personally despise) painless and even enjoyable. I have already referred a number of friends to him and will definitely use him the next time around."

Clarence T. Zillow.com 3/10/16
"I had a wonderful experience working with Ben as he guided me through my first personal real estate transaction. Ben was recommended to me by a close friend, and I myself have already recommended him to another friend and will absolutely continue to do so in the future. Ben is very knowledgeable and always willing to answer every question I had. I learned this from the very first phone call I shared with him which lasted almost three hours on a Friday evening. Off the bat, this told me that as a serious buyer, I would get the benefit of a very serious broker. Rather than brush me off or give very surface-level explanations as I found some brokers to do, Ben dove into the details and rationalized the answers to my questions. This conversation gave us a very solid foundation to work with to start off our relationship. Finding the right place was quite the journey, but Ben makes a great effort to make this as seamless as possible. After a couple conversations and reviewing listings together online, we were off to our first go-around viewing several apartments in just one day. Ben set up all the logistics to make sure we could view all of them one after another with enough time. If he had to drop off briefly for an important appointment, he would make sure another member of his (very friendly) team was available to be there and assist, to ensure that we were always in good hands no matter what. I recognized these as non-trivial time commitments and appreciated it greatly. As I saw more apartments and discussed with him my reactions to different places and my requirements, there was no feeling of pressure from his side. His desire is simply to understand what you want so that you can find what you want. After I finally decided on the apartment, Ben helped me navigate the twists and turns that make up the process of actually closing on Manhattan real estate. There were several complications that came up from the seller side, but Ben made sure to advocate for my needs, keep me informed, and respond to my consistent inquiries. Throughout the closing process, he proved to be incredibly patient and understanding. Probably the most important thing I would want you to take away from my review is that I believe Ben to be a very trustworthy and genuine person. When you''re making one of the biggest transactions of your life, you need to have the confidence that this trust enables you to have. "
