Tim P. 5/31/12 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig was the broker that worked with us in finding our first apartment in New York and we could not have asked for a better, more devoted broker.  There were several circumstances which made our apartment search challenging, most challenging being the limited amount of time that we had to look at apartments (less than 24 hours). The first day of our experience was a Tuesday afternoon in which the weather also made our search more challenging.  It was down-pouring rain for the first few hours and Ben, along with his assistant Vu Tran, were still eager to continue the apartment search, even though there was only one umbrella for four people.  They insisted that we use the umbrella, while they were unprotected from the elements. That day we were shown multiple apartments that matched our search criteria.  We were not shown apartments that we could not afford or in areas that we were not interested in living; we were only shown apartments that were appropriate to our needs and means.  This was a welcome surprise having previously dealt with brokers that were more interested in their commission rather than what would be the best for us. We would HIGHLY recommend Ben Willig and Anchor Associates Group to anyone who is looking for any assistance with the search for an apartment in New York City.  His knowledge and expertise of the New York area and its fast-paced changing real estate market was a welcomed surprise and immense help which made the experience of searching for an apartment pleasurable and successful.

Manuela M. Yelp.com 11/10/16
"We just bought the apartment of our dreams with Ben Willig! At the beginning my younger daughter showed interest in an apt on Trulia and He immediately answered back. While I was in Italy visiting my family Ben showed the apt. to my husband and our 2 daughters. At that time - January 2016 - we started looking at the market : we had been living in the city for 2 years in a rental apt and wanted to buy our own place. That first apt didn't fill our requirements but it was the first contact between Ben and my family. He understood perfectly what we had in mind and showed us just what we could like. During the process he was never pushy and always gave us great advices. Finally, after a few months, we found the perfect place. Then he showed us GREAT negotiating skills! Even after we made our closing Ben is always there to help me to solve little problems I may have regarding the move in etc. Ben is the perfect broker and he is a great guy!!! "

Kate L. 9/5/12 Yelp.com
"My roommate and I have both lived in NYC for 2 years prior to working with Anchor Associates for our third apartment. I could not have been more pleased with Anchor Associates. We worked with both Ben Willig and Andrew Vo- who were both absolutely fantastic. Unlike many of the sketchy realty brokers you find in NYC, both Andrew and Ben took the time to speak with us about what we wanted in an apartment, they were happy to show us many different spaces, even setting aside full afternoons during the weekend to work with us. When it came to signing an apartment they took the time to explain the process and negotiate the apartment price/lease agreement. They did not rush us through the process which many brokers do. After signing our lease, they took the time to check in with us multiple times to see how we liked our apartment, even bringing over home made cookies as an apartment warming gift! Working with Anchor Associates was a great experience, I would (and have) highly recommended them to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC."

"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."

Emily F. 4/19/12 Yelp.com
"How much do I love Ben Willig? Let me count the ways.Ben is truly broker extraordinaire... calm, knowledgeable, smart, funny, the hardest of workers. I cannot tell you how lucky we feel to have worked with him during our apartment process. Our situation was tricky b/c not only we were trying to find a new apartment in Tribeca or Gramercy (two neighborhoods we knew very little about - but luckily Ben did!) but also, my boyfriend had to break his lease four months early. Ben navigated the entire process with ease - he found us the VERY perfect apartment - under our budget with everything we wanted and more. He also managed to negotiate with Jon''s building for a lease break and find a new tenant. Amazing!!! We move in three weeks, everything is settled and we are thrilled. Plus, we got a discount on movers because we worked with Ben! I''m telling you what I told my friends - if you go with any other broker other than Ben Willig, you''re nuts."
