Background and credit checks help uncover any derogatory credit concerns, while employment, income, and identity screening ensure every tenant meets Utopia’s highest standards.

Whether you have questions about home or office staging, transitioning from owner occupied to a rental unit, or helping to set market level rents, our experts are up to the task. We aim to rent your property within thirty days of advertising.
Maintenance: There is no reason for you to handle repair or maintenance issues. We operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. # 792427), which allows us to complete most repairs and maintenance activities ourselves – often at less expense and hassle than if you were to arrange the repairs yourself. Save yourself the headaches and leave the hard stuff to us.

Our professional accounting team will compile a comprehensive report each month that details all of the revenue and expense line items for each of your properties. The report is delivered to your Utopia web portal, which can be accessed from any computer or mobile device, 24-hours a day.
