Why Is An HOA Persecuting A Homeowner Who Tells the Truth?


Bella Collina is a neighborhood community in central Florida. It’s advertising promises a wonderful, bright, and secure neighborhood that is close to Orlando. But the ads won’t tell you that homeowners have been sued by the property owners’ association — more than 500 times. 

Bella Collina is much like other neighborhoods, except for one thing: it is a ghost town. Only a handful of people live in Bella Collina. Poor management of the property and vindictive staff members make it difficult to live a peaceful life in the neighborhood. 

Don Karl Juravin can testify to this firsthand. After penning an honest review of the treatment he received at Bella Collina, Mr. Juravin was handed four years worth of lawsuits. The staff targeted Mr. Juravin, his children, his wife, and his pets. 

Since the POA is allegedly owned by the homeowners, one would think the system would be fair. However, Bella Collina only has a handful of homeowners and many many open spots. These spots are taken by the managers of the Bella Collina staff, who are paid by billionaire Dwight Schar in his business, DCS Investments. 

The attacks against Don Juravin have been personal and targeted. Mr. Juravin is the son of a family that survived the Holocaust. He had to change his first name when he discovered that it meant something else in Germany. But Bella Collina is continually referring to it as an alias. In addition, Mr. Juravin has a strong accent, because he is an immigrant from Israel. But the staff at Bella Collina, under Mr. Schar’s guidance, mock Mr. Juravin’s English at every opportunity. This is racist behavior. 

It is also puzzling because Dwight Schar is a former chairman for the Republican National Committee. The RNC is proud of being very pro-Israel. Why is one of their own paying for and condoning anti-Semitic behavior?

The staff at Bella Collina, on the payroll of Dwight Schar, have also tried to take away  Don Juravin’s First Amendment rights to free speech as well as his right to assemble. With temporary injunctions handed by the courts, the large army of attorneys who work for Mr. Schar tried to threaten WordPress and shut down Mr. Juravin’s sites. They were unsuccessful, because of the pathetic nature of the threat. 

Bella Collina has also employed an army of trolls to write pathetic, spam reviews on all of Don Juravin’s sites. These sites are plagued with false, poorly written reviews that drag his reputation down unjustly. 

Why Does Don Juravin Fight Bella Collina?


HOAs are difficult to deal with. Thousands of homeowners are currently battling their HOAs in court. 

Homeowners’ Associations tend to slap ridiculous rules and regulations on the people who have agreed to follow the HOA rules. 

But what happens when the HOA’s community is owned by a powerful billionaire and his henchmen? 

Dwight Schar and his company, DCS Investments, control the Florida community Bella Collina. The neighborhood’s HOA supposedly is run by the homeowners, but because of the lack of homeowners, DCS Investments and its employees run the show. 

Don Juravin, a man who wants other people to know the truth about Bella Collina, started a website and wrote honest reviews. He and his family had been persecuted by Bella Collina’s staff after trying to get the neighborhood to fix its problems. 

After several lawsuits, Bella Collina’s attorneys, on the payroll of DCS Investments, sent a letter threatening WordPress if they did not censor or ban Don Juravin’s honest WordPress website. 

Facts from these sites reveal: 

  • Richard Arrighi, a criminal affiliated with Dwight Schar, was arrested, lost his bar license, and spent three years in jail for involvement in defrauding the MA Treasury. Richard Arrighi has been the manager de facto for many years.
  • Dwight Schar’s Bella Collina is a failure with the facts provided.
  • Spencer Schar was arrested and accused of assaulting two women.
  • There are portapotties on the streets of Bella Collina and other pictures over four years that demonstrate a trashy environment in Bella Collina with what Juravin describes, “management that doesn’t care but for sales”. 
  • The Club is actually a wedding venue more than serving the community. Residents can be trapped into lifetime agreement of up to $80,000 down payment and $10,000 a year.
  • The Bella Collina houses are very close together. There is little privacy afforded to those living in the community. 
  • Bella Collina was a bad investment for hundreds of families and the majority of homebuyers who lost hundreds of millions.  Juravin provides an illustration called “scary investment in Bella Collina” based on Zillow showing a regular house value dropping 7.2% in one month in Bella Collina.
