Discounts On Larger Portfolios
25+ years Experience
Located at the base of the San Gabriel mountains, just east of Pasedena, Arcadia offers a diverse economy with many opportunities for real estate investors. There’s a good mix here of retail trade, wholesale trade, some substantial healthcare infrastructure, as well as general manufacturing. The famous Santa Anita Racetrack is in Arcadia, and has long been a cash boon for the city, supporting countless capital improvements. The Racetrack hosts some of the nation’s most prominent racing competitions and, with its mountain view panorama in the distance, is thought by many to be one of the world’s most beautiful racing destinations. There’s just over 50,000 residents in Arcadia, with a median household income of over $75,000 per year.

We offer a proven track record of providing Arcadia property owners and residents with great living experiences. For 20 years now, we’ve been helping property owners realize great returns on their investments and we’d love to do the same for you.
Some of what we offer:
Advertisements and Marketing Efforts
The best tenants, we find, come from a careful and targeted selection process. Utopia's robust marketing and advertising efforts ensure that people looking to rent (residentially or commercially) in Arcadia know about your property. We prominently feature your property on several highly-trafficked rental websites that cater well to zip codes 91006, 91007, 91066, and 91077 (Arcadia).. We also promote your rental at community events and by standard signage-based advertising and mailers. Our objective is to find a fantastic tenant for you within a 30 day period, and in order to do that consistently we have to be nothing short of a marketing powerhouse.
Finding the Best Tenants
We don't do things by the luck of the draw. On the contrary, our tenant screening process is a rigorous and thorough one. And, at the end of the day, our investment in this process saves a whole lot of headaches. We employ credit and background checks, and we also sift through rental records and red-flag any eviction records. In doing so, we maximize our chances of finding great tenants who will have no trouble handling payments and will be a fantastic steward for your property.
Management and Consulting
We are your essential advisors from day one. Whether you're looking to set up staging for your home or office property, or intend on transitioning your current residence into a rental, we can help you each step of the way. Once your property is rented, we will manage all rent collections and make sure that any vacancies are always ready to show.
Repair and Maintenance Services
If you have a maintenance problem, help is never far away. We run maintenance internally through our own team of licensed general contractors (Lic. 792427). If there's a problem on your property, you can expect a response from us directly and quickly.
You will receive regular reporting via your Utopia Web portal detailing the expenses and revenues of your investment property. You can track your property’s financials from any computer or mobile device, at any time of the day.

Finding excellent tenants starts with making sure your property is visible and attractive. We install professional signage, create quality listings, describing your property thoroughly, and take beautiful photographs that showcase your properties highlights. We then list your property on all of the highly trafficked rental websites, including utopiamanagement.com. Our dominant position in the marketing place and years managing rental properties has allowed us to develop a sizable referral database. This positive reputation for being fair and responsive means many potential renters check with us first to find their rental home. We are able to consistently rent properties priced at current rates to qualified tenants. Our responsive property managers complete the marketing optimization by being available and knowledgeable, with phones and emails always answered swiftly.
Placing the right tenant is the single most important step in rental management. Our applicant screening includes income, rental history, employment, and eviction search to evaluate for potential delinquency issues. 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.
Maintaining your rental property, as well as being available to deal with emergency repairs, can be a source of frustration for landlords. At Utopia, we have a staff of in-house technicians available for most work, under general contractors license (#792427), meaning we can complete work as quickly as possible and pass the savings on to our clients. When necessary, we also have a network of trusted vendors for specialized work, some of which we have been using for over fifteen years. This relationship translates to purchasing power to help Utopia’s clients get a better than market price.
Managing both expenses and income is all handled by our accounting department with use of your owner web portal. Tenants appreciate the ability to pay rent online, which also decreases delinquency. All expenses and receipts are tracked online and available to you at any time. A monthly statement includes all financial activity and copies of the bills we paid on your behalf. Your December statement has all of your annual figures for tax purposes. If you ever have questions regarding your statement, you can contact one of our helpful accounting staff members.
