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!"

Shoby M., Zillow.com, 5/31/16
"Throughout the entire process (which ended up being close to a year-long search), Ben was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He took my complete lack of real estate knowledge in stride and answered (honestly and candidly) every dumb question I could come up with. His knowledge of fair pricing, co-op requirements and my personal wish-list saved me precious time in narrowing down apartments that I even wanted to look at in-person. When I fell in love with certain apartments, he was supportive but pointed out specific problems and explained potential points of concern; at no point did I feel any pressure to make an offer that wasn’t perfect. He was engaged, proactive and always available when I reached out. His enthusiasm and positivity kept me in the market even when some initial offers didn’t work out. In a market where great apartments are often sold even before they make it to the first open house, Ben was able to put together a very competitive offer. He kept in constant communication with the selling agent and provided critical advice on improving my offer in the 11th hour that ended up winning the deal. Ben and his team were invaluable in helping me through the co-op board approval process. From the get-go, Ben was great at managing my expectations around timing, documentation and other board requirements. The dream team of Ben and Cortney made putting together the board package seamless and efficient. I was able to simply email them documents and they took care of the rest. Next came the board interview. Ben did a mock interview running through a list of potential questions. Imagine my surprise when the actual interview questions were almost verbatim what Ben had talked me through. As I responded to those questions I was now so well prepared to answer, I couldn’t help but chuckle thinking that the man is clairvoyant! Like an experienced captain, Ben expertly navigated me over the uncharted (and sometimes turbulent) seas of Manhattan real estate. His passion, integrity and operational efficiency made him an absolute pleasure to work with. I recommend him unreservedly and wholeheartedly!"

"My two friends and I recently used Ben Willig to find our new 3 bedroom apartment. Ben and his team went to great lengths to make sure that we found the apartment we were looking for. He made the apartment hunting process (which I personally despise) painless and even enjoyable. I have already referred a number of friends to him and will definitely use him the next time around."

KCho Zillow.com 1/29/19
"Ben was recommended to us by several friends whom he had previously represented. It was immediately clear to us why he was such a hit. When we first spoke over the phone, he gave my wife and me (both first-time homebuyers) a comprehensive overview of what to expect in the home purchase process, which proved to be both accurate and invaluable. We were initially thinking about purchasing in Manhattan, and had a pretty good idea as to what we wanted in our first home, but weren''t quite sure which neighborhood we wanted to be in. Ben tailored our first outing accordingly, with an itinerary of homes that fit our requirements in various neighborhoods, and explaining nuances such as renovation/rental potential as well as expected negotiating position. We had hit around 7-8 different neighborhoods that first day, and the experience was quite positive and informative in large part due to the efficacy of the schedule and the sunny disposition of Ben''s team. When we ultimately decided to look for a place in Brooklyn, Ben seamlessly brought in his Brooklyn expert, Will Hudson, who brought the same level of knowledge and care as Ben as we explored the new neighborhoods. When we ultimately decided on a place, Ben guided us through the bidding strategy. While the fact that we were in a bidding war was less than optimal, Ben was fully transparent about the process and prospects, and provided frequent updates and on-point advice that reflected our needs. Once we were locked in, Ben got us in touch with a great mortgage banker and a lawyer, and was able to negotiate essentially all of our significant requests in our favor. While Will remained our day-to-day contact (and kudos to him for a superb job), it was clear that Ben was keeping close watch over the deal to make sure that everything was going through properly. It''s also worth mentioning that Ben''s team was very smooth in handling the administrative aspects of the deal, requesting documents in as few e-mails as possible and carefully reviewing applications prior to submission - not highly visible, but a very important aspect of the process. Ben''s advice extended beyond home purchase - he had all sorts of useful contacts, from renovation to cleaning. We took some of his referrals and all turned out great. By this point it should be very clear that I highly recommend Ben and his team - I just hope that you don''t hire him to be your agent if you''re looking to purchase our place!"
