      Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Financial District, New York, NY.
      We were visiting New York from Philadelphia and had two and a half days to look at 1-2 bedroom condos. Ben who was recommended by a friend greeted us at our hotel, before check-in and showed us several properties throughout the city for two days. The initial search was based on a list of possible properties that Ben had preselected with our feedback on Agentfolio. In order to use our limited time efficiently, Ben provided a driver and had prearranged our itinerary with appointments at various properties.

      Ben's knowledge of NYC gave us a good feel of the prices, architecture, amenities and safety of each area. Ben is a good listener and readily modified what we saw on the second day based on our first day's experience. The final half day involved returning to our favorite condo in the financial district. Within 5 days we had an accepted offer. He then provided assistance and guidance through the condo application process and within a month of our initial search we were condo owners. At our request he also provided useful suggestions for possible lawyers to use at closing.

      Ben was attentive and thoroughly professional throughout the process. Without his experience and guidance I doubt whether we would have found our condo and would certainly not have been ushered through the process so efficiently. I feel that no one could could have done better. We would definitely use his services again should the need arise.

      Bought a home in 2013.
      Ben was a pleasure to work with. He stayed within my price range and within the areas of the city that I expressed an interest in. Ben was always available by phone or email and made sure to always give me his undivided attention.

      Sold a home in 2013.
      I highly recommend Ben Willig for his professionalism and expertise. Ben handled the sale of my condominium in Manhattan, New York. The entire sales process (from listing to closing) took less than 4 months. This was due, in large measure, to Ben's expertise - from understanding the real estate market in New York and appropriately (and competitively) listing the apartment, to negotiating and handling every aspect of showing the apartment and negotiating the terms of the sale. Ben was always responsive, professional and knowledgeable - with answers to every question and helpful strategy to close on a relatively complex sale. I was confident in Ben and knew everything was going to be taken care of in the time frame that I needed. I couldn't be happier with my experience, and thank Ben for all of his hard work.  MoreLess
