Don Juravin, an American entrepreneur and homeowner, tries to help people improve their lives by exposing scams and abuse throughout the country. One of the many ways he does this is by reviewing properties and businesses, like Bella Collina in Florida, and warning potential customers about the dangers of buying there.
Juravin, his wife, and their young daughters moved to Bella Collina in 2016. They thought that because the property was owned and managed by Dwight Schar that it would be the height of luxury.
“Widely known for its iconic 75,000-square-foot clubhouse, Bella Collina is an award-winning Tuscan-inspired luxury community with a rare private spring-fed lake, Sir Nick Faldo-designed championship golf course, resort-style pool complex, spa and salon, Sportivo Centro fitness center, Har-Tru tennis courts, multiple dining venues, and top-rated meeting space and ballroom facility,” writes the Bella Collina website. But the Juravins soon found out that this was not the case.
Over 500 lawsuits have been filed in Bella Collina, either by the greedy staff or by the disgruntled homeowners who wish to have their problems solved. In 2017, several homeowners filed a class-action lawsuit against Dwight Schar, Randall Greene, Paul Simonson, and Richard Arrighi. The lawsuit accused them of conspiracy, fraud, and racketeering. But the lawsuit was dismissed on a technicality.
Don Juravin has to stand alone in his fight against the corrupt heads of Bella Collina. And he has done so in court and out of court, again and again. The head of the Property Owner’s Association, Randall Greene, has harassed the Juravins with many lawsuits and injunctions over the past four years.
Instead of backing down, Don Juravin has fired back — and won. In one court case, he was able to prove that instead of informing the Juravins that their lawn did not meet the arbitrary standards of Bella Collina, the staff simply sued. Meanwhile, Don Juravin’s tireless efforts to inform the public of the scams that have taken place within Bella Collina continue.
