Goleta is a quiet city in southern Santa Barbara County, lying in the 93117 and 93199 zip codes. In 2010 it had a population of 29,888 residents. Once primarily an agricultural area, especially known for its lemon trees, it is now better known as a center for high-tech firms and a popular bedroom community for its larger neighbor, Santa Barbara. Goleta is largely comprised of suburban neighborhoods and small shopping centers.
Utopia Management is the largest property management company in Southern California, and we are highly-qualified to handle any type of rental property concern. Whether you are considering purchasing a single family home, condo, apartment building, or commercial or office building in Goleta, we offer a comprehensive suite of management services that can take the hassle out of owning rental property.
Marketing and Advertising: To find the perfect tenant for your Goleta property, we will employ a marketing strategy that has proven so successful that we can almost always fill any vacancy within a month. We will begin by placing listings for your property on popular rental websites and also use more traditional methods like property signage and use of our referral base.
Tenant Screening: We employ a thorough process for tenant screening. We run credit checks, verify employment and income, check driver’s licenses and social security cards, and run a search for prior evictions. We’ll do everything possible to ensure that you feel comfortable with the tenant we place in your property.
Management and Consulting: We will manage as many of the cumbersome tasks of property management as possible. To that end we will take care of rent collection, handling HOA regulation issues, serving legal notices, and dealing with legal proceedings. We are also available to help advise you on matters like assessing rent or getting your property show-ready.
Maintenance and Repairs: Not only do we maintain a general contractor’s license (#792427), but we also keep a list of preferred local vendors whom we trust to work on your property whenever any maintenance or repair needs arise. This means that we have plenty of options to choose from, allowing us to find the best possible contractor for the job.

You can log in to the owner’s web portal from our website and view your monthly financial statement to see how your property is doing whenever you like – from wherever you are at the time.
