"We were visiting New York from Philadelphia and had two and a half day..."
Kamal R. Zillow.com 2/10/14
"We were visiting New York from Philadelphia and had two and a half days to look at 1-2 bedroom condos. Ben who was recommended by a friend greeted us at our hotel, before check-in and showed us several properties throughout the city for two days. The initial search was based on a list of possible properties that Ben had preselected with our feedback on Agentfolio. In order to use our limited time efficiently, Ben provided a driver and had prearranged our itinerary with appointments at various properties. Ben''s knowledge of NYC gave us a good feel of the prices, architecture, amenities and safety of each area. Ben is a good listener and readily modified what we saw on the second day based on our first day''s experience. The final half day involved returning to our favorite condo in the financial district. Within 5 days we had an accepted offer. He then provided assistance and guidance through the condo application process and within a month of our initial search we were condo owners. At our request he also provided useful suggestions for possible lawyers to use at closing. Ben was attentive and thoroughly professional throughout the process. Without his experience and guidance I doubt whether we would have found our condo and would certainly not have been ushered through the process so efficiently. I feel that no one could could have done better. We would definitely use his services again should the need arise. "

Lou B. Zillow.com 11/5/2015
"Ben goes way beyond the traditional function of a real estate agent. His enthusiasm and expertise made him a trusted real estate advisor for me, often drawing on his own personal experiences in the New York City real estate market to educate me and inform my decisions. I have worked with Ben on many occasions, but most recently on my acquisition of an apartment in Manhattan. Before I had even decided to buy, Ben scheduled time with me to share valuable insights and considerations before entering the market. From that conversation to the day I obtained my accepted offer was just about 6 weeks. During those 6 weeks, Ben worked tirelessly and we saw over 60 units! During the search, Ben was attentive to my feedback, carefully curating listings to align with my evolving views on what was important for my home. After 3-4 weeks, Ben effectively knew what I wanted better than I did; on one Sunday, I saw 3 consecutive listings that satisfied all my top criteria and ended up putting in offers on each! And his dedication to the process did not end once I had my accepted offer. He was critical in project managing the entire process from that initial conversation, through closing and even extending himself to assist me in other questions that I continue to have such as homeowners insurance and renovations. He was adept at dealing with management companies, selling brokers, bankers, lawyers and all the other key stakeholders in the process. He was also highly responsive and available at all times to answer questions or provide updates. Any market participant, whether novice or experienced, will be at a significant advantage with Ben as an advocate. "

Lou B. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"Ben Willig genuinely loves what he does-- and that is only one reason why he is so good at it. He is also incredibly motivated, honest, organized, responsive, flexible and supremely knowledgeable in both the NY sales and rental markets. When Ben closed the deal for my roommate and I on our top choice rental, we were out of town on vacation! He showed up and closed the deal on his own. Legend also has it that he even took a Sammy Sosa-style home run swing and trotted around the bases in my lobby once he closed the deal. He has since assisted a number of my friends in their searches and all of them have had the same experience. Highly recommended."

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."

"I literally have nothing but good things to say about Anchor Associate..."
Sara S. 10/14/11 Yelp.com
"I literally have nothing but good things to say about Anchor Associates, especially Ben Willig. Ben has helped me find an apartment not one, but two times in two years! First in Murray Hill in a studio, and second in a wonderful loft apartment in the west village. He is always well prepared with multiple apartments suiting the criteria you disclose. The best thing about Ben, is that if he shows you an apartment, and you are sort of 'ify' on it, he'll immediately cross out similar apartments, and move on to ones that he feels you'll like more. I have no qualms about referring him to all of my girlfriends, and I have!! I know 5 people who found apartments through Ben, and have had nothing but great things to say, including one particularly picky guy from work who had bad experiences with brokers in the past. NYC is expensive, and Ben helps to put fees and information up front so there is no shock when you are about to sign your name on the dotted line. If I plan to move in the city again, Ben is the first place I will go. No if, ands, or buts about it!"
