"My wife, daughter and I live in Ithaca, NY and just bought an apartmen..."
Mr. Mohanty via Trulia 12/14/14
"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!)"

"Ben Willig was a fantastic help in finding and negotiating our apartment lease. To boot, he has continued to help and guide us as we have worked through negotiating our lease renewal, even after his professional commitment to us has passed. I recommend Ben and Anchor Associates to any friend of mine I hear is looking for an apartment, and he has helped many of them get wonderful apartments. I look forward to working with Anchor Associates in the future and know that they will help me find an apartment that won't compromise my needs and preferences."

"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."

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."

"My roommates and myself were looking for an apartment in the Union. After Speaking with a number of brokers, Ben Willig came to our attention. He set us up with countless apartments in a short amount of time and found us an apartment in our price range and size requirements. He was on top of everything making sure that we had all of our documents in order to insure that there wold be no issues at the signing time, which there werent. At the time of signing, he gave us a pamphlet with all different types of vendors that would be of need to us during our year living there. I have since moved out of the city, but he was a great broker to deal with."
