Hatley Family

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.

Bauer Family

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!

Harper Family

Nicole was amazing every step of the way! We were moving from Indiana to Texas and she made house shopping fun for us and helped eliminate all the stress. Nicole was super flexible and always on top of every situation that would pop up along the way. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her - we are forever grateful for her attention to detail and attention to us during our big transition.

Gerdes Family

Nicole is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with. Personable, professional, and very educated about Austin and the surrounding areas. She gave us lots of advice and she sold our house in the first few days it was on the market and at full price! We will definitely use her again in the future.

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 used various marketing techniques to virtually stage and physically stage my parents’ house so that we had the best opportunity for sales and helped us get 3 offers after one day! I would recommend Weslea to any prospective client and consider …

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 with 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 me 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.

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 call on or recommend Michelle again both for myself, friends or other prospective clients.

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 above the rest of the crowd of agents.

I recently worked with Michelle Batte for my home search. The level of attention and customer service that Michelle provides her clients is nothing short of incredible. The search and complete the home buying process is one that I've done before, and the contrast of Michelle to the other agent's I've worked with from the past is light night and day. Michelle takes the time to get to know you, understand what you're looking for, and point out anything that she would consider a potential concern. She over communicates what to expect and makes sure that anything that is needed is handled. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the Austin area looking to buy or sell a home.

We met the Clausens by chance 2 years ago and since they have represented us in 4 real estate transactions. Mark and France Clausen are totally dedicated to their clients and are always available when you need them. I've seen how many other agents act and represent their clients over the past 2 years and I can tell you without a doubt that we got the better end of all our deals having The Clausens in our corner. From what I have seen, buying or selling a home would be much easier and less stressful if more agents had the values and integrity of the Clausens. We not only recommend the Clausens but would advise anyone to only use them.

Extraordinary. The is no better team in the Real Estate business than Mark and France Clausen. Simply the name, Veritas, sets an expectation. That is exactly what you get when working with them: Truth. We cannot express our gratitude for the exceptional work they did helping us buy our new home and sell our old one. Mark and France are so far ahead of the game that they anticipate and solve problems before they ever become an issue. It has been an absolute pleasure working with them. We will absolutely, unquestionably use Mark and France again for any future Real Estate transactions. There is no one better than Veritas Group.

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!

Jim F.

Mark and France Clausen are awesome. They are professional and always looking out for and guiding their client. They always go the extra mile to explain the contract and the offer that they received for my home. From the time I signed the contract, through staging and photographs and the final sale, both Mark and France were always there to answer any and all questions. I cannot give them enough credit for all of their attention to detail and hard work. They are, in my opinion, the best of the best.

I found it very pleasant working with Weslea. She was referred to us and I can now appreciate why she came so highly recommended. Weslea helped get the right price for the home and it sold much faster than expected. I Weslea communicated so well with us throughout the entire process. What I liked most about Weslea is that she delivered on what she said she would do for us. The house sold for the price we wanted and in the time we wanted and she made it very hassle-free. Thanks Weslea!

Vanessa E.

We had a great experience with Michelle Batte. We sold our home quickly for the price we wanted! Our situation was unique with my husband being deployed overseas during most of the process. Michelle handled it with grace and made things much easier on me. Great communication and customer service, very knowledgeable and resourceful. Highly recommend Michelle Batte and her team!

Rick K.

We have purchased and sold numerous homes over the years, so we have a lot of basis for comparison. Our experience with the Clausens was outstanding in every respect. Their responsiveness, attention to details, follow up, expertise, and professionalism are as good as it gets! We would highly recommend the Clausen Group without any reservations.

Nelson & Ramonita D.

Enjoyable, outstanding performance of a true professional who cares to please the customer, providing her services with a positive experience about the real estate market and what to expect from it. If real estate services were needed in our future, Melanie would be our top choice regardless of the company that she represents. 

Hamers

Thank you guys for all that you guys have done for us! Buying and selling the 1st home is not always easy and especially doing it less than a year apart from each other. Landon and I are so grateful for the time, care, and knowledge you guys put into both. You guys are the best! Wishing you guys all the success in the future!

Heiko E.

Michelle did not only make a great first impression but followed through on everything she promised. She is compassionate and professional and knows what she is doing. Thanks to Michelle and her team we sold our house at the price point we were hoping for and even faster than we expected.

Mac & Lisa L.

Melanie represented my family in the selling of our home. Her communication, organization, and professionalism always on point. She has an amazing personality and is by far the best realtor we’ve ever had. I would highly recommend Melanie as a realtor.

Angela D.

Weslea O’Connor surpassed all of our expectations! She was always quick to respond to any questions we had, supportive and informative throughout the entire process! We would highly recommend her to all of our family and friends!

Clive & Diane H.

After originating mortgages in Austin since 1993, I have worked with a multitude of Realtors, as you can imagine. When it came time to sell my own home, I called Melanie. 'Nuff said.

Sarah J.

She is the most informed, helpful, kind person with whom I have ever worked. I am very fortunate to have met her.
