Tenant search and screen: Finding a tenant is one thing, but locating one that meets our expectations is another. We complete an extensive screening process that eliminates those who don’t demonstrate the character or past performance that we expect of a Utopia tenant. Background and credit checks, and employment, income, and identity verification are vital to finding the right individuals for your rental units.

Our local market managers will help you price your rental appropriately, market your units for full effect, and identify which renters will work best for your particular investment property.
Maintenance: Forget about wasting your personal time scheduling needed repairs or maintenance issues – we’ll take care of everything! We operate with a general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427) that permits us to take care of most repair issues ourselves. Our skilled team of maintenance professionals can handle almost any job, and we have an approved third-party vendor list to draw upon should we be unable to complete any repairs.
Accounting services: Your customized monthly report will be waiting for you each calendar month – quickly and securely sent to your Utopia web portal. This report shows all of the revenue and expense items for the month, including any bills we had to pay.
