"My wife, daughter and I live in Ithaca, NY and just bought an apartmen..."
Mr. Mohanty Trulia.com 12/14/2014
"My wife, daughter and I live in Ithaca, NY and just bought an apartment in Manhattan. Ben Willig was our broker and I can recommend him without hesitation. Ben is a thorough professional and he leads a fine team of knowledgeable real estate agents. We had never bought property in NYC before and were anxious that it would be a very difficult and complicated process. It was indeed a rather involved process, but Ben’s knowledge of the market and his affable nature made it a pleasure. Ben listens very intelligently to what his clients want, and I found that he got to understand exactly what we were looking for. He asks good questions, gets to know your tastes, and works within the budget you give him. If you change your mind (and most people do), you will find Ben adapting very quickly to your new ideas. Since he knows Manhattan’s neighborhoods well, and since the qualities of a neighborhood make a huge difference to how you will respond to your new home, Ben will not waste your time showing you places that may look good in pictures but will not give you the kind of home you want. We looked at apartments in a number of neighborhoods and ended up purchasing one in Lincoln Square; both the neighborhood and the apartment are perfect for us! Ben’s team made the process of getting a mortgage, doing the paperwork for the coop, and other related things, extremely simple. That was especially helpful since we don’t live in the City and had to do some things from a distance. And when we knew we needed a good contractor, we again asked Ben and he made some excellent recommendations to us. We found all of his recommendations to be good and reliable, and it was so convenient to interview and choose one person from the list of names he gave us for every category. All in all, Ben is superbly professional -- amiable, intelligent, and sophisticated. You will enjoy working with him. He will make you feel comfortable and let you explore things at your own pace. (And while you are looking at apartments or houses in the City, don’t forget to ask him about his favorite restaurants. We found a couple of extremely good North Indian restaurants because of him – and so many Indian restaurants in NYC are underwhelming at best!)"

Gary C. 1/3/13 Yelp.com
"I recently moved from Los Angeles to New York for work. My move was over the holidays and one of my friends that already live in the city recommend I work with Ben Willig to find an apartment. I do not regret going with this decision and ended up working with Ben and Jimmy Fernandes. Both are extremely friendly, patient and helpful people. Prior to my move, I was speaking with Ben over the phone and email in regards to what and where I wanted to live. He asked me many relevant questions about my apartment hunt that didn't even occur to me. Since Ben was going to be on vacation for the holidays, he turned me over to Jimmy. I thought that I would need to go over the same questions with Jimmy but he already knew what I was looking for verbatim. Jimmy had a whole list of apartments lined up for the day I arrived. My flight was delayed and Jimmy worked around my hectic schedule. It was dumping snow that day and he still took me to all the apartments. In the end he found me a building I would have never found on my own (I was looking for postwar but he found me an awesome renovated prewar building). The whole experience was enjoyable. I would recommend them."

Billy D. 12/6/11 Yelp.com
"I was fortunate enough to end up working with Anchor Associates earlier this summer when my friend and I moved up to New York from Atlanta. We initially expected the apartment search process to be difficult. Fortunately for us, we were paired up with Ben Willig who did a perfect job. We outlined our decision factors and Ben stuck to them. Ben spent the entire day with us and presented to us over 13 apartments that matched our price and location preferences. Ben acted very professionally and friendly. He assisted us with the entire process (including signing) and was very informative about the process. Our experience with him and his team was stellar and we have recommended him to three of our friends who have moved to the city who have all had similar good experiences. If you are in the market, make sure Anchor and Ben are helping you navigate it."

Jon F. 10/17/11 Yelp.com
"I had the please to work with Ben Willig. I was originally looking for a rental and he took me all over the city in cabs. He was the first broker that showed me apartments actually in my price range and didn't waste my time. I ended up buying an apartment which he was extremely helpful with including all paperwork. I highly recommend Ben for renting or purchasing an apartment especially if you don't want to waste time. He is honest and very helpful. My friends have used him since my experience with Ben and have all been truly happy with the experience. Very Professional, Highly Recommend!"

Tara J. 4/27/12 Yelp.com
"Ben Willing helped us find a great one bedroom apartment, and was great to work with. He showed us a dozen apartments in one day, and was very responsive to our likes and dislikes, and helped focus the search to more apartments that he thought we would like. He pointed out pros and cons of each apartment, gave helpful descriptions of the different neighborhoods, and he helped us think through things like measurements and where furniture would go. Ben was very responsive throughout the application process and made sure we got all of the paperwork in on time and correctly. Further, he came with us to the lease signing just in case we had any last minute questions or concerns. After prior bad experiences apartment hunting in NYC, it was great working with someone who understood and responded to my concerns. I would highly recommend working with Ben to find a great apartment."
