Utopia Management
The Quality Company

Serving All of Altadena

Real estate in Altadena can be a little tricky. In a span of just a few blocks you can go from poorly maintained neighborhoods to some of the nicest homes you'll find in all of Southern California. Altadena was actually where the house from the hit series Beverly Hills 90210 was located. There is undoubtedly a lot of beauty here, with the tree-lined commercial plazas, and the well-preserved architecture that seems to burst with historical clout. Though Altadena spans several zip codes, 91001 and 91003, it has been unincorporated since it was founded in 1887.

Utopia Property Management is an expert when it comes to the San Gabriel Valley and can be your indispensable partner for property management services in Altadena. In our 20 years of experience, we've developed a reputation for keeping vacancies low and maximizing profitability for property owners.

Here are some of the services we offer:

Marketing your Altadena Rental

Our belief is that the more people who know about your rental, the better chance you have of finding the ideal tenant. And, since ideal tenants are, well, the ideal, we do everything under the sun and then some to get the word out regarding your Altadena rental—from listing your property on the best performing rental websites to traditional signage-based advertising and everything in between. If Utopia is managing your rental property, then a lot of people are going to hear about it.

Tenant Screening Process

At Utopia, we spare no effort finding the optimal tenant for your Altadena rental property. We run background and credit checks on all applicants, and we also query for any eviction records.

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.
