As we excitedly approach our move date, I wanted to say once again how grateful Tony and I are for your patience, kindness, friendship and thoughtful professional insights. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you!
I'll always remember our first meeting back in January. We were just beginning our search and, after being out of the market for five years, had no idea how volatile the market was (or would become). You gave us great advice and, most significantly, introduced us to a fabulous mortgage broker who worked miracles in an impossible market.
As our house hunt dragged on into the summer, you never lost your enthusiasm or your sense of humor. When we finally found the house on Coldwater, you were instrumental in getting us an early showing and, as a result, a chance to bid first. There's no doubt that we wouldn't have had a chance after the open house.
As if finding the house weren't enough, you provided us with yet another set of flawless referrals including the escrow company and an army of outstanding home inspectors. You held our hands during the entire process, answered every question immediately, monitored all of the paperwork and somehow kept tabs on all of those crazy sellers!
We've bought and sold numerous properties over the years and can honestly say that this was the best and most enjoyable process we've ever experienced. Your integrity, professionalism, emotional intelligence and attention to detail are unique and greatly appreciated. We'd be more than happy to provide any prospective clients with a reference and look forward to sending some of our friends your way when the time comes.
Thank you so much, Clemens. We couldn't have done it without you!

Sitting at the beach in Hawaii, thinking of you and knowing that Jamie and I finally found our dream home, I thought I had to write this letter to express our appreciation.
For the past 5 years, we have been looking with different real estate agents, unfortunately not one of them was witty and patient enough to know what our criteria was and finally we met you (Jamie calls you the Terminator !). At first, I was a little skeptical about you, assumingly all realtors are the same (promises to work hard, email and follow up) then we ended up doing our own homework anyway, but your reliability, mannerism and professionalism caught my attention.
We were very fortunate to have worked with a realtor who cares deeply and passionately about his work and clients. You did your research and went to many open homes with us, with pleasure. As a first time home buyer, the escrow process was very stressful, but you were very patient and helped us through the process beautifully and professionally. We could not have asked for a better agent and in my opinion you´re the best. We could even joke with you about everything, which made the whole long process enjoyable. I am glad that we formed a friendship out of a business relationship.
It has been a long journey to find our nest, but it was worth every step of the way. The house has not been renovated yet, but every one that visits really gasps and loves it.
We are looking forward to doing business with you in the future, if the adjacent property is still for sale. When our home´s renovation is done, you have to come over for a BBQ. Andrew always asks "Are we going to Clemens house?" where he saw so much of you.
Again, thank-you so much for helping us find our lovely home in such a short time and I think, especially first time buyers should contact you and guaranteed their dream home would be complete with satisfaction.
Nini, Jamie, Alex and Andrew
To whom it may concern,
We went through many of different realtors and ALMOST gave up before finding Clemens Mandell. It´s a good thing we didn´t give up because Clemens was incredible.
It is hard enough trying to purchase a home in Los Angeles let alone find a real estate agent who wants to give you his FULL attention. Clemens was great; he took all of our needs into consideration and really worked hard to get us into a smart purchase.
Clemens handled everything from warning us away from a house that would need too much work, to finding us more options in our price range. Even after the sale he set us up with a concierge service to help handle the smooth transition of our move. All of these little things with his positive personality made for a pretty painless experience for us.
We would highly recommend calling Clemens if you are looking to purchase or sell a home. We will use him again in the future.
