Serving All of Covina

Covina is an intimate city with a small-town feel. Nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, its 46,000 residents pride themselves on a tradition of friendliness and being good neighbors. Although it was once the third-largest orange producer in the world, Covina’s orange groves today have been supplanted by single-family homes and apartment complexes. Its current claim to fame is the largest cinema multiplexes in Los Angeles County, which is one of the busiest cinema venues in the U.S.

While not far geographically, Covina is a world away from L.A. in personality–and understanding the differences between local markets is key when it comes to property management. Even subtle differences can affect your returns, and after twenty years in the area, we’re attuned to the heartbeat of the area and the subtle differences between communities. We will help you to maximize your rental potential by tapping into a network of professionals who have their finger on the pulse of the area. Some of our Covina services include:

Marketing: We take the pain out of finding a tenant. We combine traditional marketing methods like local advertising with the latest in digital marketing, ensuring that your listing reaches the maximum number of prospective tenants. Our goal is to have a contract signed within 30 days, and a great marketing campaign is key.

Tenant screening: While finding a tenant is important, finding the right tenant is essential. Our comprehensive background screening process makes finding the perfect tenant that much easier. A background check can uncover any undesirable personal issues, while a credit check ensures that the candidate can meet his or her financial obligation to you. Employment, income, and identity screening round out the process – filling in the blanks and giving you a well-defined snapshot of your potential tenant.

Management and consulting: From setting your rent to staging the property, our professionals offer expert guidance and advice. They know the 92541 area intimately, and are an invaluable resource through every step of the process, from listing the property to signing the contract and handing over the key. They can even help you transition smoothly from owner-occupied to rental property.

Maintenance: Whether major repairs or minor upkeep, we can take the stress of maintenance off your hands. We operate under a general contractor’s license (Lic. # 792427), which allows us to handle nearly any problem that arises in-house. Not only does this eliminate hassle and wasted time, but we can often make repairs faster and more affordably than an outside contractor.

Accounting: Although keeping track of your income and expenses is essential, it is a time-consuming chore. When you partner with Utopia, we take care of the bookkeeping for you. Each month our accounting team compiles a comprehensive report and delivers it directly to your Utopia web portal, so you’ll know exactly what your financial picture looks like.

We’re more than the largest property management company in Southern California—we’re a helping hand when you need it. If you want to minimize your workload while maximizing your rental income, give us a call. We’re here for you.
