Our History


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.


Sole Focus

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.

Local Growth

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.

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.
