"I had a wonderful experience working with Ben as he guided me through ..."
Clarence T. Zillow.com 3/10/16
"I had a wonderful experience working with Ben as he guided me through my first personal real estate transaction. Ben was recommended to me by a close friend, and I myself have already recommended him to another friend and will absolutely continue to do so in the future. Ben is very knowledgeable and always willing to answer every question I had. I learned this from the very first phone call I shared with him which lasted almost three hours on a Friday evening. Off the bat, this told me that as a serious buyer, I would get the benefit of a very serious broker. Rather than brush me off or give very surface-level explanations as I found some brokers to do, Ben dove into the details and rationalized the answers to my questions. This conversation gave us a very solid foundation to work with to start off our relationship. Finding the right place was quite the journey, but Ben makes a great effort to make this as seamless as possible. After a couple conversations and reviewing listings together online, we were off to our first go-around viewing several apartments in just one day. Ben set up all the logistics to make sure we could view all of them one after another with enough time. If he had to drop off briefly for an important appointment, he would make sure another member of his (very friendly) team was available to be there and assist, to ensure that we were always in good hands no matter what. I recognized these as non-trivial time commitments and appreciated it greatly. As I saw more apartments and discussed with him my reactions to different places and my requirements, there was no feeling of pressure from his side. His desire is simply to understand what you want so that you can find what you want. After I finally decided on the apartment, Ben helped me navigate the twists and turns that make up the process of actually closing on Manhattan real estate. There were several complications that came up from the seller side, but Ben made sure to advocate for my needs, keep me informed, and respond to my consistent inquiries. Throughout the closing process, he proved to be incredibly patient and understanding. Probably the most important thing I would want you to take away from my review is that I believe Ben to be a very trustworthy and genuine person. When you''re making one of the biggest transactions of your life, you need to have the confidence that this trust enables you to have. "

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."

Andrew C. Zillow.com 7/1/15
"Ben is a go-getter who really hustled for us. He quickly learned what we liked and gave us a steady stream of potential places to review. He quickly set up appointments for site visits and got timely feedback on any questions we had. Our search took over 6 months and Ben never wavered in his assistance to us. Once we had an accepted offer Ben showed outstanding knowledge of all of the processes (coop board, legal, banking, closing, etc.) that we needed to navigate to bring the deal to a successful conclusion. He made a stressful process relatively easy and the closing completed with no issues. I highly recommend Ben without hesitation or equivocation. "

"Ben was a great realtor. He took my wife and I around to several listings over the course of a few weekends. Once he had a sense of the type of place we were looking for, he took no time in finding us our apartment. He also was an expert in navigating the coop board interview and approval process. He and his team made first-time home ownership as seamless as could be expected and I would recommend him to anyone."
