Marketing and Advertising
Our marketing campaigns will help get your property noticed. Your property will be showcased on a top real estate website in brilliant high-definition; in addition, we will host local events to call attention to your property. It is our top priority to fill your vacant property with a qualified tenant in 30 days or less. With a strong marketing strategy, your property gets the attention it needs and you'll see a greater number of potential renters.
Every investor needs to have an accurate portrait of their financial standing. Through our convenient web portal, you can see how your investment properties are performing at any time. We are dedicated to your success, and part of helping you achieve it is through smart money management. We can also handle rent collection, which leaves you with one less thing to worry about!
We'll not only find qualified renters for your properties, but we will also screen them to make sure they don’t have any criminal history or credit issues. In addition, we verify both employment and identity. This helps ensure that your tenants are trustworthy. It also saves you money and minimizes problems associated with unpaid rent and property damage.
Repairs and Maintenance
Property repairs can take up a lot of time and money if you do them yourself. Instead, let our in-house contractors handle things on your behalf. We have a contractor’s license and can perform all property repairs and regularly scheduled maintenance tasks. And, we can do so for an affordable price while providing a fast turnaround time. Keeping tenants happy is an important part of driving success in property investing, so we strive to do just that by providing fast, efficient repair services.
Consulting and Management
If you need advice about property investing, we can help. We provide consulting services to new investors and experienced investors alike. One area of expertise is staging, which involves preparing your property for showing to prospective renters. We can help you to present your property in the most appealing manner possible to attract interested renters.

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. All expenses and receipts are tracked online and available to you at any time. A monthly statement includes all financial activity and copies of the bills we paid on your behalf. Your December statement has all of your annual figures for tax purposes. If you ever have questions regarding your statement, you can contact one of our helpful accounting staff members.
