"I literally have nothing but good things to say about Anchor Associate..."
Sara S. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"I literally have nothing but good things to say about Anchor Associates, especially Ben Willig. Ben has helped me find an apartment not one, but two times in two years! First in Murray Hill in a studio, and second in a wonderful loft apartment in the west village. He is always well prepared with multiple apartments suiting the criteria you disclose. The best thing about Ben, is that if he shows you an apartment, and you are sort of 'ify' on it, he'll immediately cross out similar apartments, and move on to ones that he feels you'll like more. I have no qualms about referring him to all of my girlfriends, and I have!! I know 5 people who found apartments through Ben, and have had nothing but great things to say, including one particularly picky guy from work who had bad experiences with brokers in the past. NYC is expensive, and Ben helps to put fees and information up front so there is no shock when you are about to sign your name on the dotted line. If I plan to move in the city again, Ben is the first place I will go. No if, ands, or buts about it!"

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."

Natalie S. 1/2/12 Yelp.com
"My sister and I worked with Ben Willig for two years now and we could not have been happier each time. The first year I wasn't living in the city and was unsure about what area we wanted to live in. Ben was incredibly accommodating and showed me apartments all over the city. He was very knowledgable and patient as it took awhile to make up our mind. He took me around the city several times and also met up with me again to show my parents. We were incredibly pleased with the apt we ended up in and the whole process was very smooth. The second time we moved, we immediately knew we would contact Ben again. He showed us around areas we were interested in three months before we were planning on moving to see if we could find apts in our price range. We contacted him again closer to the move in date and Ben showed us a variety of apts in the areas we liked that met our criteria for space, price etc. We found an apt that we loved and are extremely happy with our new place. I highly recommend Ben Willig and have passed on his name to all my friends looking for apts. Ben was always very quick to respond to emails or any questions that I had (and there were a lot!) and was reachable any time I contacted him. He is very personable and funny and made the whole process enjoyable."

Bill D. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"I was fortunate enough to end up working with Anchor Associates earlier this summer when my friend and I moved up to New York from Atlanta. We initially expected the apartment search process to be difficult. Fortunately for us, we were paired up with Ben Willig who did a perfect job. We outlined our decision factors and Ben stuck to them. Ben spent the entire day with us and presented to us over 13 apartments that matched our price and location preferences. Ben acted very professionally and friendly. He assisted us with the entire process (including signing) and was very informative about the process. Our experience with him and his team was stellar and we have recommended him to three of our friends who have moved to the city who have all had similar good experiences. If you are in the market, make sure Anchor and Ben are helping you navigate it."

Paul G. 10/16/11 Yelp.com
"I've had the opportunity to work with Ben Willig twice over the past year and a half and have had nothing but positive experiences. He is always on top of the market, and can give you an accurate, but more importantly realistic look at what the market is doing. Ben takes the time to lay out your options, taking into account your preferences and price range. I would recommend him to anyone."
