At Utopia Property Management, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional management services at affordable prices. We aim to please our clients and their tenants, which is why we’ve become the largest property management company in Southern California. Our comprehensive package of services includes everything from marketing, to contract, rent collection, maintenance, and financial reporting. You can reap the rewards, while we take care of everything else. Our expansive list of services includes:
Marketing and advertising: First and foremost, you want to minimize vacancies. We’ve created a strategic marketing package that includes traditional advertising avenues, like print ads and signage, combined with a comprehensive web-based listing service that puts the spotlight on your unique property until it’s rented. Our goal is to have a tenant secured and a contract signed within 30 days.
Tenant screening services: Finding the right tenant for your Monrovia rental is even more important. We all know how disastrous irresponsible tenants can be. This is why every applicant goes through a thorough screening process that includes a background/credit check and other key verifications. We also verify the prospective tenant’s income level, employment status, and identity. All of these steps help us ensure that your tenants embody the characteristics of a responsible and trustworthy renter.
Management and consulting services: For more than twenty years, we’ve been consulting with local clients, and developing our management skills, and we don’t feel we are over-stepping when we say we’re the best of the best. If you have questions regarding your Monrovia rental property, we have answers. We can help you prepare your rental for a showing, set rates that earn top revenues while minimizing vacancies, and even schedule maintenance and repairs. You can rest easy knowing that we’re on your side, ready to walk you through the process - every step of the way.
Repairs and maintenance: Yes, your property will need maintenance and repairs. It’s a fact of life. You could tackle these projects yourself. You could also hunt around for a contractor with a good reputation. Or, you could let our professional maintenance staff handle everything! We’re up for just about every task there is, and if we find a job we can’t tackle ourselves, we’ll contact a third-party repair firm from our approved vendor list to complete the work. We operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) and can often complete work fast and at a lower rate than most third parties.
Accounting: Our dedicated accounting team will provide you with clear financial picture of your investment properties at the touch of a button. The Utopia web portal makes it easy to see where your money is going and where it’s coming in. A detailed financial report is delivered to your portal each month, making tax time easy and financial-worry a thing of the past.
