“Veritas” is Latin for “the truth.”

We are well networked within the real estate community, both locally as well as nationally, which helps buyers to connect quickly, sometimes before the property hits the MLS. We are very knowledgeable not only about the local market but also the special challenges Texas Hill County properties can present. We consult on everything from neighborhoods to homes and land, water wells, rainwater collection, water and mineral rights, Agricultural and Wildlife exemptions, future development and other details that are unique to the Texas Hill Country.

“The goal of The Veritas Group is to highly elevate the real estate services and client experiences in our market areas. Joining with Compass affords us a national presence where we can utilize modern marketing strategies and current technology with our local market knowledge to best serve our clients.”

  • I have worked with France and Mark Clausen over the years, and there were no other Realtors I would even consider when we decided to list our home for sale. Their honesty and ethics are exemplary, and I knew I could rely on their expertise and recommendations. We left Austin before the house had an offer but I was confident France, and Mark would handle the entire process professionally. I will and have recommended them to friends. I am not surprised that the sale went so well because I knew they were working in my best interests and would be able to handle all contingencies. They met all my expectations, and it was a pleasure to work with them.

  • After initially being disappointed with the lack of effort by the Austin-based real estate agent I was using, my Supervisor recommended that I talk with Mark Clausen. Prior to contacting Mark, I verified to two other coworkers that used Mark to help with finding homes in Austin. All had a very high level of appreciation for the work Mark did. This is now the seventh home in my life that I have purchased, but the first time I can say that the agent earned their commission. Mark was very patient with my wife and I during several weeks of looking at houses. When the banking group had internal mistakes in processing the loan on time Mark helped drive their focus towards meeting obligations and timelines. I would recommend Mark Clausen as well as request his help in the future.

  • I can only say positive remarks about the entire Clausen group. Mark stayed positive throughout the process, and you definitely want him on your side when it comes to negotiating. The entire staff was easy to work with and fast to respond. I'll definitely be recommending the Clausen Group.

  • The Clausen team is simply the best. Mark immediately makes you feel at ease with his experience, quick recommendations and consistent availability (we joke about how many calls Mark makes in a day). France is the perfect compliment to Mark's business approach. She is genuine, knowledgeable and adds just the right amount of comfort to the emotional journey of selling a home. The glue comes from Tanya. She keeps the process moving, catches mistakes and pushes to make all the deadlines happen. Seriously, this triple threat of leadership makes me proud to call them our home team!

  • Melanie is absolutely wonderful and is beyond a rock star!!! She makes you feel as if you are her only client. She always returns calls, emails, and texts immediately and is always friendly, pleasant and puts you at ease during such a personal and stressful time. She’s a superb communicator, educator, and advisor and has excellent knowledge of the market. She has strong strategic thinking and negotiating skills, exudes professionalism, graciousness, and friendliness and can read and understand peoples’ personalities and relationships. Melanie is such a wonderful person and it shows in everything she does. She made our move from Chicago so much easier. We are very fortunate and grateful to have Melanie as our Realtor and friend.
