Discounts On Larger Portfolios
25+ years Experience
Pico Rivera expanded around assembly plants and industrial complexes offering lucrative job opportunities to nearby residents. Modest residential sections sprung up around these employment hubs to keep residents close to their chosen workplaces. The development of large shopping and recreational centers helped turn this neighborhood into a strong community of more than 50,000. Residents also enjoy access to well-maintained city parks and a municipal golf course right inside the city limits. As a property owner in this area, you might benefit from management assistance from Utopia.
Our team at Utopia Property Management utilizes 20 years of experience to net you solid returns on your investments. We provide support throughout every step of the rental process. With our help, you will develop greater confidence in your investment properties' financial performance. Some of the services we offer are:
Advertising and Marketing
Modern marketing techniques require extensive use of digital ads to attract attention to available properties. Prospective tenants expect to see all of the open properties listed on well-respected websites to review photos and descriptions at their leisure. In addition, tenants enjoy coming to marketing events and reviewing print ads before committing to the application process for a single unit. Our team employs a mix of marketing tactics to keep unit turnaround times under 30 days.
Tenant Screening and Acquisition
Despite our quick turnaround goals, our team always completes a full tenant screening process for each applicant. The screening process verifies that the tenant has the right combination of rental history, income, and referrals to meet the recommendations for each of your investment properties. By thoroughly screening the tenants, we dramatically reduce the risk of tenants defaulting on payments or requiring eviction in the future.
If you want to learn all you can about property management services, attend consultation appointments offered by our skilled team members. The consults give you the knowledge you need to successfully clean, stage, and present your home to interested parties. Our consults can boost your confidence when setting rent prices or identifying fair deposit rates for each of your rental properties.
Our team of contractor professionals keeps your units in great shape by providing excellent maintenance and repair services. We maintain a contractor license (Lic. #792427) that ensures your repair services are always performed to code by qualified professionals. If we cannot have our team do the work, we will call in prescreened professionals to get the job done.
Regularly checking in on your investment properties' financial performance can give you the reassurance you need to continue on with this endeavor. Our accountants help you closely watch your profits and expenses with the generation of monthly reports. You can view the detailed reports by logging into your Utopia web portal anytime.

Finding excellent tenants starts with making sure your property is visible and attractive.

We then list your property on all of the highly trafficked rental websites, including utopiamanagement.com.

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.
