MODEL CLIENTS

And what they have to say

“If there comes a time for us to recommend the best way to sell a community, we have to point to the effect of your wonderful scale model, our centerpiece, on prospective buyers.”

U S Home Corporation / Sarasota FL

“I would like to take this opportunity to say “job well done” on the scale model your company provided. The scale model has assisted in what may be a record number of sales in a relatively short time frame for a multi-million dollar condominium project.”

“We are a luxury home builder, building homes at the Founders Club valued between the $950’s to over $5 Million. The appearance of our marketing materials is essential to our success. Hans Clausen just completed the refurbishing of our Topo Table at the Welcome Center and we couldn’t be happier. The old table was tired and jaded. Hans completely cleaned up every detail and has made it come to life. Interestingly, since Hans completely refreshed our community table we have made two very large sales. Hans is a true professional and an artist. He is patient, listened to our needs and delivered on his promises. He is also a pleasure to work with and I would strongly recommend him.”

Roland Naimsey / Director of Sales / London Bay Homes / Naples FL

“Thank you for giving us such a beautiful site table of our golf course development. This year our sales showroom won the Gold Award at the annual National Association of Home Builders Show. That your large golf course model is our primary display was, I believe, a major factor in our receiving this prestigious honor. The detailing you put into our miniature homes and villas is quite exquisite, the three dimensional lakes and fairways are perfection.”

Director of Marketing / Bonita Springs FL

“Your work has always been perfection – and of significant sales and marketing assistance.”

“This is just a short note to tell you how very much we appreciate the time, effort and skill you devoted to restoration of the model of the RCA, British and French Buildings for the Center’s 50th anniversary exhibit. Those of us who viewed the model prior to your work can truly marvel at your dedication to the project and your respect for this very special part of Rockefeller Center’s history.”

Robert C Marville / Executive Vice President / Rockefeller Center

“I personally worked with Hans on a very complex design with a very tight schedule. I found him to not only be cooperative but also possessing a demand for quality and service to his clients. His exemplary service and the quality product he produced was well received. The positive response has proved to be of benefit to the firm. I highly recommend.”

“This is to recommend Mr H C Clausen, a highly qualified professional scale model builder. We had already purchased an expensive site table model for our showroom by another builder but its’ quality was disappointing. When Mr Clausen showed us examples of his work we were so impressed that we immediately commissioned him to replace our existing scale model with a brand new one! He accurately portrayed all of the mounds and contours on our 18-hole golf course and provided perfect miniature duplicate castings of our model homes. His work was so superior that we requested a second larger scale model of our new clubhouse, which we incorporated into a total scale model display. Mr Clausen offers a superior product for a fair price and was a pleasure to work with.”

John W McGiffen / Venice Golf & Country Club

David McGregor / Cooper Eckstut / NYC

“We have commissioned Mr Clausen with several architectural scale models. Many of these have involved very tight time schedules. In all cases he has performed in a timely manner without sacrificing the quality of the product. Mr Clausen is a very reliable craftsman and responsible individual. We highly recommend him as a qualified model builder.”

That model served as our centerpiece and greatly contributed to our home buyer’s visualization of their dream of living at Worthington.

Thanks again for the wonderful model and service you provided.”

Project Manager / Pinehurst NC

“Thanks for your many long hours studying our site plan, paying attention to every detail and delivering, yes, the best topographical site plan in Tampa. Sales have been great and every homeowner wants to place their home on the site. Golfers stop by to see where they lost their golf balls. Everyone comments on the detail. We’re very pleased with the quality. I recommend you to every developer and builder that comes into the Welcome Center. It has made our job at the Welcome Center so much easier in describing the site.”

“It is my pleasure to write a recommendation for my colleague Hans Clausen. Hans was an enthusiastic teacher who enjoyed great rapport with our students. His work was innovative and meticulously planned. His broad approach to education, coupled with a genuine love of his field, produced creative thinking and work of an excellent standard. His work with the students was never confined to school hours as he gave his own time freely to anyone seeking greater understanding of their work, and on the varied, and very successful, field trips he conducted. I recommend Hans most favorably and would be happy to be consulted by any person desiring to engage him as an instructor.”

Cynthia Duval / Ringling Program Administrator

“Hans Carl Clausen has been a member of the faculty of Parsons School of Design. He has taught a course titled Presentation Techniques each semester plus a course Environmental Graphics. In addition he taught courses in the Environmental Design Department which offers a BFA at Parsons School of Design. From personal observation in the classroom it is evident that Hans Clausen possesses those characteristics essential to encourage students to work effectively and creatively and to grow in depth and breadth. Dynamic experiences have been attested to in the anonymous evaluations submitted by students. It takes a multi-faceted, exceedingly competent, emphatic and autonomous instructor to be able to meet the varied needs of so disparate a group of students. Hans Clausen has been able to achieve this task to the satisfaction and gratitude of our students and certainly in keeping with our academic standards of excellence. If I can be of further assistance please feel free to request it.”

Samuel Magdoff / Associate Dean for Continuing Education

“As former Chairman of the Board at the Educational Testing Service (E.T.S.), former Vice President of the University of Florida, and the Founding President of New College, I continue the recognition of the need for excellence in education in America. At this time it gives me great personal pleasure to support Hans C Clausen. Mr Clausen is personally known to me and has also worked for my company. I have never felt more favorably inclined to a person and the quality of work performance in design and related professional capacity. He has also worked for some of the area’s leading architects and developers. They too share my feeling of competence and character of Mr Clausen. His present position as instructor, Ringling College of Art and Design, Sarasota, is a fine acknowledgement by his local peer professional associates. I recommend him most favorably. Thank you for your consideration.”

George F Baughman / President

“Please accept this letter as a reference for Mr Hans C Clausen. I have known Mr Clausen and had the opportunity of having him instruct under my Chairmanship at the Ringling College of Art and Design. Mr Clausen displays genuine enthusiasm in a teaching situation and that combined with his training and demand for imaginative, yet practical, solutions to a given problem, avail any faculty to an aspiring new member. He is an individual who enjoys relating his classes to other courses in concurrent study, and is able to work within departmental guidelines when so structured. I would be happy to answer any additional questions that you may have.”
