Utopia Management
The Quality Company

Serving All of Castro Valley

The Castro Valley region extends from Interstate 580 on the west all the way to the Dublin Hills Regional Park at the east. With much of the 94546 region bordered by the Lake Chabot Regional Park at the north, this neighborhood offers a unique blend of accessibility and seclusion. The neighborhood mostly consists of dense blocks of single and multi-family residences with commercial venues interspersed between the dwellings. A great school system and ample commute options makes this an excellent place to live, work and play.

We verify identification, social security cards and pay stubs, along with contacting prior landlords for recommendations, keeping the delinquency rate to a minimum. Our thorough screening process for potential tenants has consistently kept our eviction rate at less than one percent.

Utopia also provides our owners with the optional “Utopia® Eviction Protection Program” for further peace of mind.  As a management company, we have many procedures in place to assist in the elimination of potential liabilities.
