"My wife, daughter and I live in Ithaca, NY and just bought an apartmen..."
Mr. Mohanty Trulia.com 12/14/2014
"My wife, daughter and I live in Ithaca, NY and just bought an apartment in Manhattan. Ben Willig was our broker and I can recommend him without hesitation. Ben is a thorough professional and he leads a fine team of knowledgeable real estate agents. We had never bought property in NYC before and were anxious that it would be a very difficult and complicated process. It was indeed a rather involved process, but Ben’s knowledge of the market and his affable nature made it a pleasure. Ben listens very intelligently to what his clients want, and I found that he got to understand exactly what we were looking for. He asks good questions, gets to know your tastes, and works within the budget you give him. If you change your mind (and most people do), you will find Ben adapting very quickly to your new ideas. Since he knows Manhattan’s neighborhoods well, and since the qualities of a neighborhood make a huge difference to how you will respond to your new home, Ben will not waste your time showing you places that may look good in pictures but will not give you the kind of home you want. We looked at apartments in a number of neighborhoods and ended up purchasing one in Lincoln Square; both the neighborhood and the apartment are perfect for us! Ben’s team made the process of getting a mortgage, doing the paperwork for the coop, and other related things, extremely simple. That was especially helpful since we don’t live in the City and had to do some things from a distance. And when we knew we needed a good contractor, we again asked Ben and he made some excellent recommendations to us. We found all of his recommendations to be good and reliable, and it was so convenient to interview and choose one person from the list of names he gave us for every category. All in all, Ben is superbly professional -- amiable, intelligent, and sophisticated. You will enjoy working with him. He will make you feel comfortable and let you explore things at your own pace. (And while you are looking at apartments or houses in the City, don’t forget to ask him about his favorite restaurants. We found a couple of extremely good North Indian restaurants because of him – and so many Indian restaurants in NYC are underwhelming at best!)"

Jennifer S. 11/28/11 Yelp.com
"I worked with Ben Willig and he was amazing. Let me tell you why. This past March I moved across the country from Cali. I met with Ben once in Jan. while I was in NY for business and he made time to meet with me at the craziest hours of the day and even showed me some options that are out there. Right before March rolled around he found some great deals for me to look at, including one place in Kips Bay for which 5 other applicants wanted. Thanks to Ben, i beat them out by a hair. He was so quick, thorough and diligent. He gave me a video tour, sent photos, etc. so I was comfortable renting sight unseen. I've been in my place since March and now think I will be moving again. Since i'm more familiar with the city and know my way around, I want to more to a more affordable location. I've contacted Ben again to discuss. Great person to work with! Really recommend this company and getting in touch with Ben! "

"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. "

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. "

"I recently moved to NYC from DC. I had some city living experience so..."
Gregory B. 10/08/12 Yelp.com
"I recently moved to NYC from DC. I had some city living experience so I had a decent idea of what I was looking for, but there's no way I could have navigated my way through the craziness of NYC apartments without Ben's help. Ben Willig was referred to me by a friend who also had a great experience with him. I came to the city one afternoon, and Ben patiently took me from place to place. He had a list of about 25 places and narrowed it down as we progressed. He saved the best for last, and knew I would feel the most confident with my selection if I saw the other places first. Not to mention the last place was a no-fee rental, which earned even more points in my book. Ben is personable, reliable, communicates quickly and easily, and really made a potentially stressful experience enjoyable. I will definitely be using him again and will refer him to people I know."
