"Ben Willig has now put me in two apartments, and on each occasion I had a wonderful experience. The first time my roommate and I used Ben was during the real estate meltdown of late 2008/early 2009. Despite the fact that he stood to gain no fee, he busted his hump and showed us dozens of spots throughout the city. He was always a professional, but I could always count on him to give me his honest opinion. I've recommended him to numerous other friends and associates and everyone has had positive feedback."

"My mom found Ben through a Craigslist search. It ended up that we attended the same college. Ben was extremely helpful and flexible throughout my apartment search. He met me on time and had already contacted buildings that he thought I would be interested in. While looking at an apartment, if I didn't like it, we moved on. He helped me find the building I am now living in and I could not be more pleased. Ben's group is very professional and I highly recommend them."

"Extremely Impressed! Moving to Manhattan is pretty darn intimidating. My wife and I recently made the move down from Boston. Not knowing the city well, we found the apartment search to be overwhelming. After a bit of frustration we decided that we really needed a broker's help. Unfortunately, our first broker didn't get the job done. She was a friend of a friend and while very friendly it turned out that she just didn't have the necessary knowledge of the rental market and it became clear we would need to part ways. Enter Ben Willig from Anchor Associates. From our very first interaction over the phone I was impressed. He found out what we were looking for and we arranged to meet the next week. It was obvious that he knew his stuff and was intimately familiar with the area where we were hoping to move. In one afternoon he showed us over a dozen apartments. It went from a situation with our previous broker struggling to find a single acceptable apartment to a situation where we had a half-dozen or more apartments that were acceptable. To complicate matters, things had to come together extremely quickly. We met on a Tuesday and my wife was heading out on a three week business trip to Africa on Thursday. I am currently unemployed, so she was the one who's name needed to be on all the paperwork. If we couldn't get it done, we would have had to start the process all over when she got back. Thanks to Ben, everything worked out. A crazy morning culminated with Ben getting everything together and my wife signing a lease immediately before hopping in a taxi to the airport. I moved in last weekend to a great one bedroom on the Upper East Side and it never would have happened without Ben Willig's amazing efforts."

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."

Jackie G. 7/25/11 Yelp.com
"Having lived in NYC for 5 years and never gone through a broker to find an apartment, I was convinced that I could find a great apartment on my own. After 3 weeks of looking at terrible apartments on our own, my boyfriend and I contacted Anchor Associates. We worked with Ben Willig who was able to set up 5 viewings for later that evening. All the apartments he showed us were fabulous. He kept our budget and needs in mind, and was super friendly and endlessly helpful. Ben answered all of our questions promptly and was highly professional. We cannot be happier with our new place and are so pleased with our experience with Anchor. Will definitely be using them for our next move!"
