Serving All of South El Monte
South El Monte is located less than 15 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley. Home to over 20,000 residents and more than 2,400 businesses, the city is a thriving center for growth and development. Recent efforts to invigorate South El Monte’s economy have led to a flurry of construction, opening new avenues for investors looking to purchase real estate in Southern California. Whether you are in the market for either residential or industrial properties, South El Monte is a city of opportunity and Utopia Management can help you make the most of it.
For more than two decades, we have worked with property owners in Southern California to ensure that their rental properties deliver maximum financial benefit, while requiring a minimum of time and hassle. Your expert Utopia Management team will not only take over the burdensome day-to-day management tasks associated with your rental properties, but they can also provide you the benefit of an expert’s knowledge of the South El Monte market and the 91733 zip code area. Our basic services include the following:
Marketing and Advertising: We generally find qualified tenants to fill vacancies within 30 days by employing a trusted marketing strategy that blends online and more traditional methods. These methods include creating an extensive online presence for your property and utilizing property signage, a wide referral base, and drawing upon our reputation for being the industry leader for Southern California property management.
Tenant Screening: We have developed a thorough process for tenant screening that has consistently resulted in a low eviction rate. We conduct background and credit checks, as well as looking for previous evictions and verifying employment and income.
Management and Consulting: Our goal as your property management specialist is not only to take on the daily management tasks inherent to any rental situation, such as collecting rent and enforcing regulations, but also to act as your real estate consultant. Your Utopia Management team is led by a manager who has a detailed knowledge of the South El Monte market.
Maintenance and Repairs: With our own contractor’s license (#792427), we can take care of most maintenance and repair jobs in-house. However, when we are unable to do so, or when we deem it more cost-effective to hire another contractor, we have a list of preferred vendors whom we trust to do the job right.
Accounting: Our team of expert accountants work hard to keep you up-to-date on the financial activity of your rental property. Wherever you are in the world, you can log in through your Utopia web portal and access a confidential monthly statement. This statement will show all activity for the previous month, including rents received and copies of bills paid out.
These services form the foundation for a successful rental property venture. Let the helpful and knowledgeable specialists at Utopia Management take care of you, your property, and your tenants. Call us today to find out how we can help you make the most of your South El Monte rental property.
