Ben and his team are wonderful to work with! He got us appointments to see all of the units that we wanted very quickly and had an offer in and accepted within a week! He is very honest and we trusted his opinion. Ben and his team made the co-op approval process a breeze and we feel so lucky to have found our dream home!

Ben and colleague Nick were exceptional from the beginning of our association. We used them to sublet our apartment for 2016 and that flawless process made our decision to have them sell the apartment a "no brainer". In both instances, they held open houses consistently, always once a week and many times twice a week, as well as followed up with those who viewed the apartment. They also did much more than any other realtors in CT and NYC ever did for us - from setting up stagers, cleaning service when needed, and contractor to paint and ready the apartment for the market. When Ben showed up on a Sunday afternoon for an open house, a pipe had burst in the bedroom heater. He quickly contacted me and the super, held the open house, and stayed until early in the evening until the plumber had come and gone. Then he arranged to get the contractor back to deal with the water damage! Cannot recommend Anchor Knights more highly.

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.

We just bought the apartment of our dreams with Ben Willig!
At the beginning my younger daughter showed interest in an apt on Trulia and He immediately answered back. While I was in Italy visiting my family Ben showed the apt. to my husband and our 2 daughters. At that time - January 2016 - we started looking at the market : we had been living in the city for 2 years in a rental apt and wanted to buy our own place.
That first apt didn't fill our requirements but it was the first contact between Ben and my family. He understood perfectly what we had in mind and showed us just what we could like. During the process he was never pushy and always gave us great advices. Finally, after a few months, we found the perfect place. Then he showed us GREAT negotiating skills!
Even after we made our closing Ben is always there to help me to solve little problems I may have regarding the move in etc. Ben is the perfect broker and he is a great guy!!!

Working with Ben Willig was a phenomenal experience. The process of buying our first apartment was an extremely daunting one, but Ben was there to help every step of the way. Ben spent countless hours taking us to apartment after apartment, listening to all of our finicky needs and wants, and then tailoring the apartment search to what we were looking for and within our budget. He was very knowledgeable about the industry and about all the different neighborhoods we were looking at, and no question was too big or too small for him. Because of Ben, I found an amazing place, and I couldn''t have gone through the buying process without his help and guidance. Ben is experienced and he knows what he is doing - I would highly recommend working with him!!

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!
