The Property Management Experts
Best in Class
Welcome to property management and professional relationships done absolutely right.
On this page you will learn about Gassen's Mission, Values, History and more.
The Beginning of Gassen
In 1969, Reggie Gassen started in the residential management business. He began by purchasing and fixing up rental units. Soon after he started in 1969, he began managing larger apartment buildings in a 5-state area.
Moving to Minnesota
In 1984, Reggie moved his business to Minnesota because of the opportunity a metro area provides. He soon grew his portfolio of apartment units to over 5,000 and continued to grow Gassen in the management industry.
By 1986, Reggie's wife Catherine Gassen joined the business after being in the homeowner association management sector. They both saw the HOA management industry as a large opportunity for Gassen and decided, with their expertise and experience, to shed the apartments to focus solely on HOA management. They soon became an industry leader in Minnesota.
In 2003, Kirk Gassen joined the business and took the company from 7,000 units to over 12,000 in 5 short years. He bought the business in 2014 after reaching the total number of units under management to 18,000.
Awards and Recognition
Reggie was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from CAI. Reggie and Catherine were trailblazers and innovators in the HOA management business since the very start. CEO Kirk and the entire Gassen Team take the Gassen reputation seriously every day in their first in class customer service.
The Leadership Team, headed by Ben Lampron Chief Operating Officer (COO), is engaged in becoming the only HOA Management firm you should work with in Minnesota. Our management philosophy and dedication to being the best, not the biggest, sets us apart from the competition. Gassen Management strives to be your partner in HOA management.
Family Owned Since 1969
Gassen Management is a family-owned and operated property management business that began in 1969. Our founder, Reggie Gassen, started off by fixing up rental units, but soon transitioned to HOA management in Minnesota and the Twin Cities area in 1986 with his wife Catherine.
Since then, we have grown to become a leader in the property management industry, providing professional management services to a variety of properties. Our team is highly experienced and knowledgeable, and we bring a wealth of expertise to each project. We are committed to providing the highest quality of service and to upholding the standards of excellence set by our founder.
Our mission is to elevate the HOA community experience by proactively providing leadership and a complete portfolio of services.
Gassen's vision is to lead and redefine the HOA management industry one community at a time.
We care, we treat everyone with respect, and exercise professional humility. We are all part of the same team, and when one succeeds or fails, the entire team succeeds or fails. No one member plays a more important role than another.
We focus on bringing solutions to issues that arise, recognizing that our solution may not be the direction that is chosen. We take the approach of finding the best solution for all parties – not just for one individual.
Do the Right Thing
We do what is right – yesterday, today and tomorrow. This may not be the easiest or most comfortable plan of action, but we are strong enough to take the right path anyway.
We are committed to providing unbelievable service to our clients. We are also committed to the success of our colleagues, our clients and Gassen Company. We are one team and we demonstrate that.
