Marketing Your Rental:

We go the extra mile to ensure that the word gets out about your rental property. We begin with standard signage-based advertising and pushing word-of-mouth awareness through our long-standing professional network in Upland. We then attract even more attention to the listing by utilizing the very best the Internet has to offer in the way of rental listing sites. Our efforts ensure that we have the widest of all possible applicant pools from which to select, and our timeline objective is to locate, screen, and contractually commit your tenant within a 30-day period.

Finding the best tenants

We thoroughly screen prospective tenants – employing background checks, credit checks, income verification, and more. Our process is set up to exclude tenants who have a history of evictions, late payments, or criminal activities. We know that you want reliable, trustworthy people renting your property, and Utopia’s screening process ensures that’s exactly what you’ll get.

General Property Management Services

After 20 years of experience managing properties in Upland and other parts of Southern California, our team at Utopia has acquired a sound understanding of local market trends. We can help you to set the perfect rental rate for your properties. On top of that, we will manage all rent collections and keep your vacant units ready to show at all times.

On-Site Maintenance

We’ve got your maintenance needs covered. And by that, we don’t mean to say that we know who to call to get things done. We actually do the work ourselves, as licensed general contractors (Lic#792427).

Accounting Services:

We know you want to see the numbers. That’s why our committed accounting professionals regularly provide reporting that details the expenses and revenues of your investment property. The report is accessible via computer or on any mobile device via the Utopia Web portal.

In addition to being the largest property manager to serve Southern California, we also pride ourselves in offering the best possible experience for our clients. Contact us today – we’re eager to show you what we can do.
