Serving All of Arcadia

Located at the base of the San Gabriel mountains, just east of Pasedena, Arcadia offers a diverse economy with many opportunities for real estate investors. There’s a good mix here of retail trade, wholesale trade, some substantial healthcare infrastructure, as well as general manufacturing. The famous Santa Anita Racetrack is in Arcadia, and has long been a cash boon for the city, supporting countless capital improvements. The Racetrack hosts some of the nation’s most prominent racing competitions and, with its mountain view panorama in the distance, is thought by many to be one of the world’s most beautiful racing destinations. There’s just over 50,000 residents in Arcadia, with a median household income of over $75,000 per year.

We offer a proven track record of providing Arcadia property owners and residents with great living experiences. For 20 years now, we’ve been helping property owners realize great returns on their investments and we’d love to do the same for you.

Some of what we offer:

Advertisements and Marketing Efforts

The best tenants, we find, come from a careful and targeted selection process. Utopia’s robust marketing and advertising efforts ensure that people looking to rent (residentially or commercially) in Arcadia know about your property. We prominently feature your property on several highly-trafficked rental websites that cater well to zip codes 91006, 91007, 91066, and 91077 (Arcadia).. We also promote your rental at community events and by standard signage-based advertising and mailers. Our objective is to find a fantastic tenant for you within a 30 day period, and in order to do that consistently we have to be nothing short of a marketing powerhouse.

Finding the Best Tenants

We don’t do things by the luck of the draw. On the contrary, our tenant screening process is a rigorous and thorough one. And, at the end of the day, our investment in this process saves a whole lot of headaches. We employ credit and background checks, and we also sift through rental records and red-flag any eviction records. In doing so, we maximize our chances of finding great tenants who will have no trouble handling payments and will be a fantastic steward for your property.

Management and Consulting

We are your essential advisors from day one. Whether you’re looking to set up staging for your home or office property, or intend on transitioning your current residence into a rental, we can help you each step of the way. Once your property is rented, we will manage all rent collections and make sure that any vacancies are always ready to show.

Repair and Maintenance Services

If you have a maintenance problem, help is never far away. We run maintenance internally through our own team of licensed general contractors (Lic. 792427). If there’s a problem on your property, you can expect a response from us directly and quickly.

Accounting Services

You will receive regular reporting via your Utopia Web portal detailing the expenses and revenues of your investment property. You can track your property’s financials from any computer or mobile device, at any time of the day.
