"It’s been a month we moved in our new home and finally get to write about Ben Willig. Ben came as a recommendation to us from one of our very close friends who he had helped purchase an apartment as well. In a nutshell… TOP AGENT, TOP CLASS SERVICE!! That’s what you can expect from him and nothing less!! Very proactive, methodical and hardworking! Ben was extremely helpful, professional and responsive and knows the NY realtor market very well. We are the first time property buyers and with so many questions and reservations that we had, Ben guided us throughout the process in the most accommodating manner. He was ALWAYS kind and patient with us in explaining things in detail and the in the most simple way. Always honest and was never biased in his opinions. He loves his job to bits and that shows in the way he handles his work and clients with so much care. Without doubts, we are his clients for life and would recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy or sell their property. He is surely the very best real estate agent to work with in New York city!! "

"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."

"I was referred to Ben from multiple friends who had worked with him during their apartment search process. He was highly recommended due to his skill, knowledge, professionalism and ability to execute and deliver. My experience working with him has been nothing less than perfection. I had searched on my own for months before I had my first meeting with Ben. I thought I had a good knowledge of the real estate market, but boy did Ben open my eyes to so many things I could not have known on my own. During this first meeting, Ben listened attentively to all my ideas and preferences and gave me his honest viewpoint and opinion of what I should expect during this search process. He took the time to explain many things about the real estate market and process that I had no knowledge of previously. He did not rush the meeting and instead offered to explain and walk through things as long as I needed to get comfort and feel prepared. I sincerely appreciated how thoughtful and patient he was from the get-go. I was under a rushed process as I had to move out of the rental apartment, and Ben worked closely with me and stayed on top of my process. During the entire search process, he was always available, full of energy and accommodating. He dedicated countless hours sending me listings online, viewing properties in person together, and discussing ideas over email. Ben''s skills became even more apparent to me during the contract negotiation stage. There were two things that stood out to me - 1) his ability to connect with others and create a harmonious environment for both parties to reach a good outcome, and 2) his depth of knowledge which ensures that he won''t miss a beat in representing you as his client. Ben was able to convince the seller to reduce the listed purchase price by over $40k and secure a fast process - I signed the contract within a month after my first meeting with him. That''s an incredible speed and discount in NYC. The rest of the closing process was seamless. He was instrumental in getting my co-op board package together fully and accurately to insure no delays with the closing process. This takes a lot of coordination and a lot of paperwork to go through. Ben has an amazing team that supports him and helped me stay organized and punctual during this process. Because of his meticulousness and professionalism, we stayed on top of the schedule and closed on time. This whole process could have been stressful but instead Ben made it the most fun process ever. I highly recommend him to all my friends without hesitation. Ben - thank you for giving me a place in NYC to call my home. "

"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."

Caroline R. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"I had the pleasure of working with Ben Willig, who I was referred to by a friend. My friend had secured an awesome apartment on the Upper East Side with Ben so I hoped that he would do the same for my roommate and I in the Murray Hill Area. Ben did not let me down- he took us on many excursions and helped us find the best possible apartment for our budget. From the beginning he was honest, hard working, and more importantly he never pressured us. When we found the apartment that we liked, he sent us all of the paper work in a very timely manner and instructed us so when the paper work and lease came, everything was extremely clear. He even took the extra time to personally talk with our parents and answer all of the questions that they had. I would HIGHLY recommend Ben Willig to anyone, and I hope to work with him again in the future."
