Ballard is a small community tucked away in the Santa Ynez Valley, a tiny treasure that has been somewhat overlooked in recent times. Ballard was founded in 1880 at the site of a Wells Fargo stage line station and named for William Ballard, the station’s owner. At the time, it was expected by its inhabitants to become a major metropolis. While the hoped for population boom never occurred, Ballard has become a charming small town to call home.

Marketing and Advertising: Utopia Management uses a proven marketing method that generally results in a qualified tenant placed in a vacancy within thirty days. Whenever your Ballard property becomes vacant, we will list it on the most popular rental websites, utilize property signage, and employ our wide-reaching referral base to make sure that word gets out to any potential tenants.
Tenant Screening: Since we know how valuable a good tenant is to you as the landlord, we put every applicant over eighteen years old through a rigorous screening process. From credit and background checks to searches for prior evictions, we are as thorough as can be. We even offer the optional “Utopia® Eviction Protection Program” to help you feel comfortable and confident when a tenant signs a contract.
Management and Consulting: Owning rental property comes with many responsibilities and decisions. We will advocate for you, so that your job is as easy and hassle-free as possible. We will take over most of the mundane, day-to-day tasks, like collecting rents and enforcing HOA regulations, but we can also advise you on matters that deal will local market trends, such as assessing a suitable rent level for your property.
Maintenance and Repairs: Our list of third-party vendors in the area can be counted on to handle virtually any maintenance or repair tasks that crop up on your property. However, we also hold a general contractor’s license (#792427) that allows our in-house team of maintenance technicians to complete some of these tasks if we deem that it is more efficient or cost-effective to do so.
Accounting: Your property investment is in good hands when you trust Utopia Management. Our team of skilled accountants works nonstop to provide you with up-to-date information on your property. You can log in to the owner’s web portal on our website at any time to view your monthly statement and see all relevant financial activity, including rents collected and bills paid on your behalf.
