Bruce R. 2/7/13 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig and Jimmy Fernandes . . . remember those names because they are worth GOLD! I am an Architect from Santa Monica and needed an apartment in Manhattan for my daughter and myself. There are a lot of fine realtors in New York, and a few who treat you only as a paycheck. Ben and Jimmy will be my go-to referrals and friends in NYC. We were staying in a temporary apartment while searching for just the right place. We had very specific requirements including, among other things, my insistence on safety and easy transportation to and from my daughter's school. We also had other specifics which made a couple of brokers give up, not so Ben and Jimmy. They were always positive and reassuring and I truly believed they would find the right place for us, and they did! I can honestly say we would not be happily living where we are now without them . . . period. I've been in the service business for 30 years and these two people, Ben Willig and Jimmy Fernandes do all the right things to treat them like GOLD."

"We had to make the big decision to rent or buy. With the help of Ben Willig from Anchor this choice was made easy. He laid out the facts for us and gave us helpful info to make up our mind and find the right location which fit our needs and our lifestyle. We never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision even though we looked at places for quite a while and in 3 different boroughs. Now, we found a wonderful apt. and the process of making an offer and the contract review and signing etc. went smoothly due to his expert help and suggestion. He was there every step of the way and is still taking our calls and replying our emails now and is there to help. It was a pleasure to work with him."

"Ben Willig is a fantastic agent and an even better person. He has gone completely out of his way to successfully negotiate multiple apartment leases for me. Ben is willing to set up appointments that work with my hectic schedule and always available via phone and email throughout the entire process. Ben is always honest and respectful both to his clients and other people involved in the brokerage process. It's tough to find someone as dedicated to his profession as Ben is in the city- his clients are his priority and this mantra makes working with him an absolutely pleasure."

John O. Yelp.com 8/27/14
"We recently worked with Ben Willig of Anchor Associates on a co-op purchase in Manhattan. As a first time home buyer, we were incredibly lucky to have Ben as our buyer''s broker. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process -- from the bidding process, due diligence, signing contracts, acquiring financing, the co-op board package and interview and ultimately the closing. First and foremost, Ben is extremely attentive to his client''s needs and responsive given the various tight deadlines that are inherent in a co-op purchase. In addition, Ben has great recommendations for the resources one would need in closing a purchase (financing, attorneys, inspectors, insurance, etc.) and all the people we worked with were top notch. As issues would arise in the process -- as they naturally do -- Ben and his team showed great skill in handling them on our behalf and achieved great results for us. With the help of his warm, friendly and knowledgeable colleague Nick Campbell (who actually helped us view numerous rental properties before we decided to explore purchasing), Ben at Anchor Associates was the best broker we could have asked for. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone as a broker for a home purchase. "

Natalie O. 3/25/13 Yelp.com
"Apartment hunting is stressful, but Ben Willig and Jimmy Fernandes made the experience as seamless as possible. I met Ben four years ago when he found me my first apartment in the city. I had such a great experience that first time around, I knew if I ever had to move again, Ben would be my first phone call. Once again, Ben delivered. He also introduced me to his colleague, Jimmy, who was instrumental in finding me my most recent apartment. Ben and Jimmy showed me several quality options within my budget, and did not get frustrated when my search criteria changed a couple of times. They were extremely patient, and invested so much time and effort into my search. Ben and Jimmy are not just great brokers, they are great people. They truly care about making sure you have the best experience possible, and end up completely satisfied with your new apartment. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family, or anyone else who is looking for a new home."
