We Handle Marketing for You
At Utopia Management, we believe marketing starts at the office door. First impressions matter to prospective tenants, which means it is essential for a property management company to present the best possible first impression. We keep our properties immaculately clean, as well as the units we show potential tenants. To attract prospective tenants Utopia lists units on the most popular rental websites. We use several digital marketing strategies to reach potential tenants, from developing an appealing Facebook page to presenting quality images of your property on Instagram. With a growing number of prospective tenants searching for rental units exclusively online, you need a property management team that understands how to get the word out digitally.

The Leader in Residential Property Management
Managing a residential property is one of the most delicate balancing acts. Utopia Management achieves the optimal balance between protecting the financial interests of our clients and ensuring the tenants that rent from our clients remain happy with their arrangements. We manage single-family homes of all sizes and monetary values. The ultimate goal is to transition you from a hands-on manager to a savvy full-time real estate investor that benefits from a profitable stream of passive income.
Experience matters in the residential property management industry. With a quarter-century of residential property management experience, Utopia has developed the systems to manage expenses, provide timely communication with tenants, and follow every state and federal law that pertains to residential property management.
We are the protective shield that prevents our clients from losing money because of expensive liabilities. The eight percent management fee we charge is not only one of the lowest residential property management fees in the industry; it is also a fee that includes every possible property management service.
An Eviction Rate Under One Percent
Less than a one percent eviction rate is unheard of in the property management industry. Utopia achieves the seemingly unachievable by following a time-tested operational model.
Screening the best tenants for your property.
We confirm identities, incomes, and employment before we show units to a potential tenant. Another verification step is to contact a previous landlord to determine whether a tenant has a history of late payments and/or has caused friction with other tenants. All the strategies we implement for recruiting the best tenants are the reason why our eviction rate is below one percent. Utopia also offers our clients the Utopia® Eviction Program to give them peace of mind.
- Exceptional property protection options for owners.
- Preparation, delivery, and execution of legal documentation for evictions.
- Optional “Utopia Eviction Protection Program” for additional peace of mind.
We Stay on Top of Repairs and Maintenance
Utopia Management staffs a team of in-house maintenance technicians that promptly answer calls throughout the day. However, what separates our property management company from other companies is that we devise a realistic maintenance schedule. Our customized maintenance schedules prevent many of the issues that keep other property managers up at night.
Here’s why we excel in completing repair and maintenance projects:
Emergency service 24 hours per day
Inspections performed before tenants move in and move out
Highly skilled technicians
Work with bonded and licensed contractors
Wide variety of maintenance services
Know where Your Investment Stands
One of the most frustrating parts of handing over the management responsibilities to another company is not knowing where your investment stands financially. Utopia Management handles managing both income and expenses by using your owner web portal. You can track every financial metric at any time. You review copies of the bills we have recently paid and the monthly statements that show every rent payment. Our in-house accounting department does a remarkable job of keeping our clients informed about everything regarding their property finances.
