"Extremely Impressed! Moving to Manhattan is pretty darn intimidatin..."
Daniel A. 3/14/12 Yelp.com
"Extremely Impressed! Moving to Manhattan is pretty darn intimidating. My wife and I recently made the move down from Boston. Not knowing the city well, we found the apartment search to be overwhelming. After a bit of frustration we decided that we really needed a broker's help. Unfortunately, our first broker didn't get the job done. She was a friend of a friend and while very friendly it turned out that she just didn't have the necessary knowledge of the rental market and it became clear we would need to part ways. Enter Ben Willig from Anchor Associates. From our very first interaction over the phone I was impressed. He found out what we were looking for and we arranged to meet the next week. It was obvious that he knew his stuff and was intimately familiar with the area where we were hoping to move. In one afternoon he showed us over a dozen apartments. It went from a situation with our previous broker struggling to find a single acceptable apartment to a situation where we had a half-dozen or more apartments that were acceptable. To complicate matters, things had to come together extremely quickly. We met on a Tuesday and my wife was heading out on a three week business trip to Africa on Thursday. I am currently unemployed, so she was the one who's name needed to be on all the paperwork. If we couldn't get it done, we would have had to start the process all over when she got back. Thanks to Ben, everything worked out. A crazy morning culminated with Ben getting everything together and my wife signing a lease immediately before hopping in a taxi to the airport. I moved in last weekend to a great one bedroom on the Upper East Side and it never would have happened without Ben Willig's amazing efforts."

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."

Beat K. 10/16/11 Yelp.com
"We had to make the big decision to rent or buy. With the help of Ben Willig from Anchor this choice was made easy. He laid out the facts for us and gave us helpful info to make up our mind and find the right location which fit our needs and our lifestyle. We never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision even though we looked at places for quite a while and in 3 different boroughs. Now, we found a wonderful apt. and the process of making an offer and the contract review and signing etc. went smoothly due to his expert help and suggestion. He was there every step of the way and is still taking our calls and replying our emails now and is there to help. It was a pleasure to work with him."

Cindy B. 8.21.17 Zillow,com
"Ben and colleague Nick were exceptional from the beginning of our association. We used them to sublet our apartment for 2016 and that flawless process made our decision to have them sell the apartment a "no brainer". In both instances, they held open houses consistently, always once a week and many times twice a week, as well as followed up with those who viewed the apartment. They also did much more than any other realtors in CT and NYC ever did for us - from setting up stagers, cleaning service when needed, and contractor to paint and ready the apartment for the market. When Ben showed up on a Sunday afternoon for an open house, a pipe had burst in the bedroom heater. He quickly contacted me and the super, held the open house, and stayed until early in the evening until the plumber had come and gone. Then he arranged to get the contractor back to deal with the water damage! Cannot recommend Anchor Knights more highly."
