Mark and France are truly amazing at what they do. We could not have asked for a better home buying and selling experience. Mark and France helped us find the perfect home when we moved to Dripping Springs two years ago. Unfortunately, we were forced to relocate again and the Clausen team was able to get our house on the market quickly. We had multiple offers over the asking price on the first weekend! Mark and France are simply the best the Austin area has to offer and we would highly recommend working with them.— Hatley Family
Melanie has taken the best care of us! Moving across the country has caused a lot of anxiety so Melanie and her team have made sure we had all of our many questions answered, always made time to show us numerous properties in multiple neighborhoods while accommodating difficult travel schedules! Her unwavering patience kept us knowing she always had our best interest at heart. Her warm nature and wonderful personality was a perfect welcome to Austin. We are forever grateful for Melanie’s time in finding our amazing new home!— Tim & Annie Z.
We were about to list our home in Polo Club on MLS, but the Clausens found us a buyer and we closed with a cash buyer in two weeks and three days! We didn't even have to paint our home or make any substantial repairs (not that there many, mind you). Mark and his wife, France, are awesome! Hard-working, honest, and well connected! Mark is a former Navy Seal and has a seal drive for getting the mission done! Mark has honorably served our country and he uses his same drive and integrity to serve his clients. There are a lot of real estate agents and brokers but very few who actually stand above the herd. Mark and his wife, France, are two that stand ab...— Kevin
Weslea came highly recommended by a close friend and has been a lifesaver to my family and me through every interaction! She helped my husband and I find our perfect dream home and was patient, professional, and helpful through every step of the process of this new build home. She’s the type of agent that you trust with your family, and that’s exactly what I did! After we closed on my new home last year, I recommended her to help sell my parents’ house this year. Weslea is organized, detail-oriented, responsive, extremely fast and has an extensive network of vendors to help her clients. Covid/2020 has been an unprecedented and bizarre time, Weslea u...— Nancy
Michelle Batte was amazing to work with and was very responsive as well as detail-oriented. She is knowledgeable, professional, friendly as well as witty when needed. Michelle lives, breathes, and is very passionate about her career. Voice messages, e-mails, or texts to her never sat very long without a response. In the fast-paced world of beating other prospective buyers to submitting that well-crafted offer on that perfect house, Michelle delivers! She is also there throughout the entire process, checking and double-checking every document and communication to ensure everything stays on track or for the sake of improvement. I would not hesitate to...— Larry G.
Nicole was wonderful to work with throughout each and every step of our buying and selling experience! She has amazing attention to detail, organizational skills, is extremely knowledgeable and she made us feel that we were her primary focus— at all times! We know if we ever have our housing needs change in the future that she would be the first person we reach out to! We can not recommend her enough!— Bauer Family
