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!

I rented an apartment from this agent.
