"We were visiting New York from Philadelphia and had two and a half day..."
Kamal R. Zillow.com 2/10/14
"We were visiting New York from Philadelphia and had two and a half days to look at 1-2 bedroom condos. Ben who was recommended by a friend greeted us at our hotel, before check-in and showed us several properties throughout the city for two days. The initial search was based on a list of possible properties that Ben had preselected with our feedback on Agentfolio. In order to use our limited time efficiently, Ben provided a driver and had prearranged our itinerary with appointments at various properties. Ben''s knowledge of NYC gave us a good feel of the prices, architecture, amenities and safety of each area. Ben is a good listener and readily modified what we saw on the second day based on our first day''s experience. The final half day involved returning to our favorite condo in the financial district. Within 5 days we had an accepted offer. He then provided assistance and guidance through the condo application process and within a month of our initial search we were condo owners. At our request he also provided useful suggestions for possible lawyers to use at closing. Ben was attentive and thoroughly professional throughout the process. Without his experience and guidance I doubt whether we would have found our condo and would certainly not have been ushered through the process so efficiently. I feel that no one could could have done better. We would definitely use his services again should the need arise. "

"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."

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."

"I highly recommend Ben for any real estate transaction. Ben is professional, responsive and detail oriented. He appreciated and valued our requests and opinions and worked diligently to close the deal on the sale of our home."

Steve S. 9/25/2013 Zillow.com
"I worked with Ben for about 4 months while looking for an apartment in the Chelsea area and couldn't have had a better experience. While it sounds extremely clich?? to say that someone "goes the extra mile", it is a 100% accurate portrayal of Ben's work ethic. Two quick examples that come to mind include 1) during the final walk through prior to closing on the apartment I ultimately ended up finding, Ben (in a full suit) got on his hands and knees to fully inspect that the chimney flue was working correctly, completely accepting the fact that he would get dirty in the process. 2) I had a contractor take a look at one of the apartments I was looking at in order to see what it would cost to make a few renovations. I was stuck at work and unable to meet him at the apartment, but Ben said he would show the contractor around and let him know what I was looking to do. Sure enough, Ben met the contractor at the apartment and was able to walk him through everything that I wanted to. Simply put, your average NY city broker would not put in nearly as much time and effort as Ben does to make sure that you have a positive experience in searching for a new place to buy or rent. I recommend him to all of my friends, and consistently hear similar feedback from them. "
