"I worked with Ben Willig at Anchor and I have nothing but good things ..."
Benjamin W. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"I worked with Ben Willig at Anchor and I have nothing but good things to say about him. I was referred to him by a mutual friend, and from day 1 he was nothing but patient and helpful. Every apartment we saw, he had all of the details and was extremely and honest and upfront about all fees and costs. We spent days running and cabbing around the city at all times of the day, and he never lost his upbeat attitude or energetic disposition. He was always professional and always responsive to my requests, questions, and opinions. The funny part is, I didn't even end up renting an apartment through him! When an opportunity for a great place fell into my lap, I called Ben to discuss it, and he was honest and helpful even though he wasn't going to be compensated. If and when I need to rent a different apartment in NYC, I will definitely work with Ben again."

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."

Lou B. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig genuinely loves what he does-- and that is only one reason why he is so good at it. He is also incredibly motivated, honest, organized, responsive, flexible and supremely knowledgeable in both the NY sales and rental markets. When Ben closed the deal for my roommate and I on our top choice rental, we were out of town on vacation! He showed up and closed the deal on his own. Legend also has it that he even took a Sammy Sosa-style home run swing and trotted around the bases in my lobby once he closed the deal. He has since assisted a number of my friends in their searches and all of them have had the same experience. Highly recommended."

Sam A. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig and his extremely professional and courteous staff at Anchor Associates made my move in NYC absolutely hassle-free. Ben helped me move into the perfect apartment with all the amenities and specifications that I requested. He took the time to consider what I was looking for, and patiently showed me several apartments offering to pay for the cab fee to each place. He definitely went the extra mile and his relaxed and easy going nature made the apartment hunting experience surprisingly enjoyable! I have no doubt that these are just some of the reasons why Anchor Associates have had so much success in the last few years. Since my first move, I've referred numerous co-workers and friends and all have walked away just as satisfied with their experience, and I definitely plan on calling Ben in the future for all my moves as well!"

Gregory B. 10/08/12 Yelp.com
"I recently moved to NYC from DC. I had some city living experience so I had a decent idea of what I was looking for, but there's no way I could have navigated my way through the craziness of NYC apartments without Ben's help. Ben Willig was referred to me by a friend who also had a great experience with him. I came to the city one afternoon, and Ben patiently took me from place to place. He had a list of about 25 places and narrowed it down as we progressed. He saved the best for last, and knew I would feel the most confident with my selection if I saw the other places first. Not to mention the last place was a no-fee rental, which earned even more points in my book. Ben is personable, reliable, communicates quickly and easily, and really made a potentially stressful experience enjoyable. I will definitely be using him again and will refer him to people I know."
