"Ben Willig at Anchor Associates was a life saver! I was forced out of..."
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."

"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."

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."

"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!"

"I worked with Ben for about 4 months while looking for an apartment in..."
Steve S. 9/25/2013 Zillow.com
"I worked with Ben for about 4 months while looking for an apartment in the Chelsea area and couldn't have had a better experience. While it sounds extremely clich?? to say that someone "goes the extra mile", it is a 100% accurate portrayal of Ben's work ethic. Two quick examples that come to mind include 1) during the final walk through prior to closing on the apartment I ultimately ended up finding, Ben (in a full suit) got on his hands and knees to fully inspect that the chimney flue was working correctly, completely accepting the fact that he would get dirty in the process. 2) I had a contractor take a look at one of the apartments I was looking at in order to see what it would cost to make a few renovations. I was stuck at work and unable to meet him at the apartment, but Ben said he would show the contractor around and let him know what I was looking to do. Sure enough, Ben met the contractor at the apartment and was able to walk him through everything that I wanted to. Simply put, your average NY city broker would not put in nearly as much time and effort as Ben does to make sure that you have a positive experience in searching for a new place to buy or rent. I recommend him to all of my friends, and consistently hear similar feedback from them. "
