Former Navy SEAL, Mark Clausen and his wife France are the principles of the Veritas Group. The Veritas Group has achieved over $150M in real estate sales volume in the past three years alone. Mark has over 25 years of real estate experience in multiple aspects other than sales, from investing, construction, development and lending. Mark and his team at the Veritas Group work in the Austin and the Texas Hill Country markets, focusing primarily on luxury properties.
Mark’s extensive background in real estate began after his career, as a police officer in San Diego, CA. Together, he and France owned a development company where they got their start “flipping” properties. Their evolution as developers progressed to purchasing apartment complexes, renovating and subdividing into condo complexes. Mark oversaw every phase of development. As the project manager he was responsible for everything from procurement, construction, development, financials and day-to-day operations, down to design choices. Today, Mark and France continue to own a nationwide portfolio of investment properties.
Mark treats each client with the utmost care and negotiates as if every transaction were his own. He is known for his tremendous dedication, determination and negotiating savvy. His background as a Navy SEAL and as a police officer prepared him to handle situations adeptly, calmly and proactively. Mark’s goal is to fight hard to give his clients the best experience with optimal results. What distinguishes the Veritas Group (formerly the Clausen Group) is the strength of each individual team member and how those strengths amplify their team. “The definition of a ‘team’ is that everyone counts on each other for the success of the group. I learned this as a SEAL and we instill it at the Veritas Group today. We are comprised of uniquely talented and skilled agents who work together to better our team. Each one of us possesses strong client relationships, high attention to detail and far-reaching real estate knowledge. As an agent I take pride in my own work, and that of my team.”
