“When you work with Clausen, you don’t just get a great Realtor. You get an insider. Someone who speaks the language and is always looking out for your best interests.”
Anna Stern, Buyer
Walking the walk.
It takes Clausen Ely exactly 125 steps to get to work. And while this makes for a great commute, it’s not about beating traffic (that’s just a bonus). It’s about commitment: to his family, to his community, to his clients. And this matters. Living where he works gives Clausen the kind of specialized insight that allows him to go above and beyond for his clients.
Not just a real estate broker. An insider.
When he encourages buyers to give a home a second look because the school is so great, it’s not because he looked the test scores up online. It’s because his kids—or his friends’ kids—go there and love it. When he urges a client to scoop up an investment property, he knows it’s a smart move because he owns investment property there. He sees firsthand how the neighborhoods grow and change.
His clients benefit from his deep knowledge of downtown Baltimore in other ways, too: He knows which contractors can give you the best deal, who to call when you need a locksmith, and even where to find the best slice of pizza in the city (Zella’s on Hollins Street). And he’s always there to help, long after the transaction is over.
When Clausen is not showing properties, you can find him cheering on his two sons at Little League, lacrosse or soccer games, going to Orioles games or visiting local galleries with his wife, a Maryland public-school teacher and artist.
