Origin Story

How AO grew from 1 HOA to an HOA online enterprise

Association Online was founded in 2005 by Mike and Jerie Schwab, a husband and wife team who saw a gap in the market between HOAs and real estate professionals. Their journey started in HOA property management, where they grew from 1 HOA to 42 in just two years.

During this period of rapid growth, Mike and Jerie saw an opportunity to streamline the HOA process. With Mike’s expertise in HOA management and leadership coupled with Jerie’s expertise in finance and accounting, they began developing a platform that allows real estate professionals to access, manage, and obtain timely and accurate HOA documents and information.

The AO platform connects the real estate industry to HOAs with precision, ease, and reduced financial risk. They ensured it was user-friendly, with a clean and intuitive interface to streamline accessibility and use for all organizations.

Their platform quickly gained popularity, and before long, became the go-to source for title companies, mortgage lenders, and HOA managers looking to streamline their processes, reduce risk, and increase efficiencies. Mike and Jerie continue to innovate, adding new features and capabilities that adapt to the changing real estate landscape.

Today, Association Online is a growing company that has expanded its offering to HOA servicing for single-family residences and plans to continue serving the real estate industry in a timely and trustworthy manner. Mike and Jerie remain at the helm and are committed to serving the real estate industry and staying true to the AO mission - “Give back. Give respect. Give honor.”
