Emily S. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig was super helpful with our apartment search! We started with looking for an apartment for 4 girls and ended up finishing with a 2 bedroom on the UES for 2 of us! You can imagine how difficult 4 girls can be to work with but Ben was amazing throughout the entire process. My roommate and I were able to find a few very nice, clean properties to use in making our final decision. I have been in my apartment for 1.5 years now and still refer people to Ben Willig. He is incredibly professional and an expert in NYC apartments! Recently, Ben took a friend of mine and myself on a tour of some UES apartments and was again, quite successful in finding several options for her! In the end, she decided to stay put but will refer to Ben Willig when she begins her search again."

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."

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 at Anchor Associates was a life saver! I was forced out of..."
Bart D. 9/14/11 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig at Anchor Associates was a life saver! I was forced out of my apartment due to flooding from Hurricane Irene and needed an new apartment in a matter of days. I called Ben Willig at Anchor Associates at 3pm from the car and he said he had 3 places he could show me by 5pm. Ben took me around NYC only looking at places in my price range that also met my commute requirements. Ben showed me a wide selection of apartments all with different pluses including one that I couldn't believe I could afford. I made my selection that night and Ben stayed with me till late in the evening working on the application so it could be submitted before the next morning. I have never had such dedication from anyone. The next day Ben calls me to say that the apartment I wanted had an application submitted earlier the night before, before I could get mine in. However, another apartment in the same building that we had looked at the night before was still available. It was outside my price range, but Ben was able to negotiate them down to what worked for me and had preemptively submitted my application to make sure I wouldn't miss it. Within days I was approved and ready to move in. Without Ben this processes would have taken me weeks and at a much higher cost. I will certainly be using Ben the next time I am looking for an apartment and I have recommended him to everyone I know."

Graham S. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"I have had the pleasure of working with Ben Willig for the past two years. I was referred to Ben and after our initial meeting I understood why my friend was so confident in recommending me to work with Ben and Anchor Associates. Through Ben's experience he was able to listen to what myself and roommate was looking for in our first apartment in NYC and we were able to find a place and close in the first day of looking for apartments. After our lease was up and we had to renegotiated price, myself nor my roommate had the time or knowledge of the rental market to adequately negotiate the price and deal our buildings leasing office. Ben stepped up and help negotiate price with us saving us a couple hundred dollars a month allowing us to stay in the apartment and having the re-up process become relatively easily. Through my experience with Ben and Anchor Associates I have referred all my friends to work with Ben. Time after time they have all thanked me for referring them to Ben reaffirming the fact that working with Ben and his team has made their process of finding an apartment in NYC easy!"
