Ellen L. 7/29/11 Yelp.com
"Friendly, professional, efficient, effective. This was my second consecutive year working with Ben Willig at Anchor Associates and both years I have ended up with my dream apartment. Ben is super friendly and goes the extra mile for his clients - whether it's pulling strings to get into apartments that haven't even been listed yet or staying after hours to help with lease-signing. For both apartment searches, Ben lined up a ton of places for us to see (typically 6-8 units per outing) which was not only time-effective but also gave us many options to choose from until we found a place we loved. He also stuck to apartments within our price range and didn't push us into anything, which I definitely appreciated and can be hard to find with other NYC realtors. After we found our apartment, he was literally calling the landlord from the cab on the way to his office to make sure we got it, and we were signed-sealed-delivered just 72 hours later! Ben is a pro and I would definitely work with him again."

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."

Charlie C. 4/2/13 Zillow.com
"Ben was a breath of fresh air in my attempts to rent a house. I went through what I assume to be a standard indoctrination into NYC Real Estate: 1) Learn about broker's fees. 2) Attempt to avoid them by responding to ads on New York Times, Street Easy, Zillow, and Craig's List. 3) Encounter the absolute scum of the earth in the form of 98% of real estate agents. Finally I got a response from Ben from a particular Zillow request - and the rest was history. Responsive as can be --- brutally honest (You would enter a place and he would tell you right away 10%/15%/no fee, etc.) --- adaptable to your housing desires. I will work with Ben again in my life as a NYC resident. Would be shocking not to."

Colby G. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"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."
