Discounts On Larger Portfolios
25+ years Experience
Westminster was founded in 1870 by Rev. Lemuel Webber, and was incorporated into a city in 1957. In the early 70’s a large number of Vietnamese refugees moved to the city – specifically, into an area now called “Little Saigon.” The city actually boasts the highest concentration of Vietnamese Americans of any U.S. city (40.2%), and is a cultural mecca for Orange County residents who seek authentic Vietnamese products and food. Westminster won the All-America City Award in 1996 and is considered a rich and diverse city in which to work and live. If you are seeking Westminster property management services from a company with a rich history in the Orange County area, look no further than Utopia Property Management.
Founded in 1994, we’ve been growing ever since and we’re now the largest management company in Southern California. Our family owned and operated business is comprised of local experts and management professionals who have an in-depth understanding of Westminster, Seal Beach, Garden Grove, and all of the surrounding cities and towns in this region. Some of our basic services include:
Advertising and marketing: We’ll help shine the light on your listing by placing ads on a variety of unique rental websites. Then we’ll network with our industry affiliates – oftentimes the best source of tenants. Finally, we’ll complete local advertising activities and create and distribute high impact signage. This comprehensive approach often delivers quick responses and minimal “time-to-contract” windows for our exclusive Westminster rental services.
Tenant sourcing and screening: The right tenant can make the difference between a comfortable and profitable rental property experience and one that is a constant headache. We employ several checks and screens to ensure that applicants are qualified, gainfully employed, and possess the inherent character that we expect of a Utopia client. Issues like past evictions and late payments can indicate a potential for future problems, so we completely verify that an applicant’s rental history is acceptable.
Management and consulting services: Get ready to leverage our twenty-plus years of experience in the property management field as we help you prep, rent, and oversee your collection of investment properties. Our property managers are experts in their fields, and have an in-depth understanding of the local market – including Westminster and beyond.
Maintenance issues: All properties will require maintenance at some point. It makes little sense for an owner to spend valuable time completing these tasks, so we’ll do them for you! As a full-service management company, we hold a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) and employ a team of maintenance professionals who can help you with nearly any related maintenance task.
Accounting: Let our team of accounting professionals keep tabs on the revenue and expense items for your property. We’ll complete a detailed accounting of all transactions related to your property and deliver a concise month-end report directly to your Utopia web portal.
At Utopia Property Management, we’re committed to delivering a world class experience for you - the property owner, and your tenants. As a full service management company with a focus on efficient operation and clear, consistent communication, we’re sure that you’ll come to appreciate our results-oriented management style.

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.
