Frank S. 10/01/12 Yelp.com
"My wife and I could not have asked for a better experience finding our first apartment together than our experience with Ben Willig and Andrew Vo at Anchor Associates. Ben's expertise came right into play during our initial telephone discussion when, after we discussed our budget and what we were looking for, Ben suggested looking at a neighborhood that we had not thought of. This turned out to be crucial, as the apartment we ended up renting was in this very neighborhood! Ben and Andrew put together a great itinerary that allowed us to easily compare and contrast apartments based on price, neighborhood, and building amenities. Although I had been warned beforehand from a friend not to rely on brokers (in general, not regarding Anchor specifically) for information on features of the surrounding neighborhood such as proximity to subway stops, the information Ben and Andrew provided on the neighborhoods I was familiar with beforehand was right on the money, which put me greatly at ease. Both gentlemen were quite easygoing and did not pressure us to choose any specific apartment. Andrew in particular is to be praised for tirelessly guiding us through a very long and geographically diverse journey around the city. Furthermore, he went above and beyond by making several efforts to contact us the next day when our first-choice apartment--which had been snatched up the first day (such is NYC apartment hunting)--became available again. Because my wife and I were so thrilled that we had secured our second-choice apartment, which was in the same building as our first choice, we were lax about checking our e-mail and phone that day, but Andrew finally reached us, and thus we are writing this review from our dream apartment! And we love our new neighborhood too. Be aware that since the firm in high demand, it may take some effort and time to get a hold of them initially. Anchor had to reschedule our first phone appointment, but it was well worth it! Overall, we can highly recommend Anchor in general and Ben and Andrew in particular for anyone, particularly novices, trying to find an outstanding New York apartment."

Jenny S. 9/15/12 Yelp.com
"I was given Ben Willig's name from my good friend who he found an apartment for. I was completely taken aback at his professionalism and kindness. He called me and spent about 20 minutes on the phone with me which I thought was very generous. I explained I was looking for a shared living situation and even though he didn't really deal with that he took the time to give me advice and contacts. He also offered to stay in touch if I had any questions. I was beyond impressed at his helpfulness. I ended up finding another girl to look for an apartment with and Ben put me in touch with Vu Tran. Vu was also very helpful, professional, friendly, and warm. I went to his office to discuss some of my concerns about finding the right apartment and he had a glass of water waiting for me. I can't speak highly enough of my experience. The girl who I was looking for an apartment with backed out and I felt really bad, but Vu was completely unphased and continued to offer me help in the future if I needed it. I will recommend Ben and Vu to anyone who I hear is looking for an apartment and when the day comes that I need to look for an apartment I will definitely be calling them again."

"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!"

Bart D. 9/14/11 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig at Anchor Associates was a life saver! I was forced out of my apartment due to flooding from Hurricane Irene and needed an new apartment in a matter of days. I called Ben Willig at Anchor Associates at 3pm from the car and he said he had 3 places he could show me by 5pm. Ben took me around NYC only looking at places in my price range that also met my commute requirements. Ben showed me a wide selection of apartments all with different pluses including one that I couldn't believe I could afford. I made my selection that night and Ben stayed with me till late in the evening working on the application so it could be submitted before the next morning. I have never had such dedication from anyone. The next day Ben calls me to say that the apartment I wanted had an application submitted earlier the night before, before I could get mine in. However, another apartment in the same building that we had looked at the night before was still available. It was outside my price range, but Ben was able to negotiate them down to what worked for me and had preemptively submitted my application to make sure I wouldn't miss it. Within days I was approved and ready to move in. Without Ben this processes would have taken me weeks and at a much higher cost. I will certainly be using Ben the next time I am looking for an apartment and I have recommended him to everyone I know."

"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."
