"My roommate and I have both lived in NYC for 2 years prior to working ..."
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 had an outstanding experience with Anchor - especially working with Ben Willig! With all of the sketchy brokers out there it was so nice to work with an honest and friendly guy. I moved from Washington, DC up to New York City and Ben was helpful in finding times to look that were convenient for me. In addition, he was very open in our communication and always kept me and my roommate in the loop. Ben has helped not only myself but almost all of my friends find great places in the city that fit our needs and out budget. He was very sensitive to our budget, but also understood the needs of two girls in the city. I would, and do, recommend him to anyone that is looking for a place in New York City. Ben is a great guy who I enjoyed spending a weekend with while looking for a new home in NYC. I definetely recommend Anchor and Ben Willig."

Meg S. 1/24/13 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig was an amazing broker to work with. I was in a time crunch to find a one bedroom and he not only sat down to listen to what I was looking for, but delivered quickly. He listened to my preferences, altered his search accordingly, and found an apartment within days. His whole team worked fluidly and efficiently and made the process much easier. I highly recommend Ben and his team to anyone!"

"Extremely Impressed! Moving to Manhattan is pretty darn intimidatin..."
Daniel A. 3/14/12 Yelp.com
"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."

"Ben Willig and his extremely professional and courteous staff at Ancho..."
Sam A. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig and his extremely professional and courteous staff at Anchor Associates made my move in NYC absolutely hassle-free. Ben helped me move into the perfect apartment with all the amenities and specifications that I requested. He took the time to consider what I was looking for, and patiently showed me several apartments offering to pay for the cab fee to each place. He definitely went the extra mile and his relaxed and easy going nature made the apartment hunting experience surprisingly enjoyable! I have no doubt that these are just some of the reasons why Anchor Associates have had so much success in the last few years. Since my first move, I've referred numerous co-workers and friends and all have walked away just as satisfied with their experience, and I definitely plan on calling Ben in the future for all my moves as well!"
