Serving All of Norwalk
In the early days, dairy and sugar beet farms covered the land throughout the Norwalk region. Since then, sprawling urban development has transformed the properties from barns and farmhouses to a diverse mix of apartments, condos, and single-family homes. With ample access to nearby job opportunities, and a close proximity to the greater Los Angeles area, median incomes in this region remain well above $60,000. Excellent educational facilities, such as Cerritos College, support the continued improvement of the expanding local economy. If you need property management assistance in this area, give our team at Utopia a call today.

Our team embraces the digital realm to allow more people to view your property listing. We also run traditional marketing events and ads to increase local interest.

Our screening services rule out tenants with questionable rental histories or inadequate income levels.

During the consultations, you will learn how to use market trends to set rental prices and how advertise your rental. You may also learn how to confidently stage and show your open rental units to find interested tenants in no time!
We provide you with access to qualified contractors (Lic. # 792427) who can assist in keeping your investment properties in great condition over the years. If your rental units require extensive repairs, we will send out one of our approved third party vendors to take care of the issue for you. Upon securing our help, you never have to worry about finding or sending out a repair professional for routine or emergency services.
Our accounting team will provide monthly financial reports to verify that your investment properties are performing as expected. You can review the information and make adjustments on the fly to net the returns you seek. All of our accounting documents are sent to your Utopia web portal for review anytime.
