groves, only a few key trees remain and hint at the neighborhood’s rich history. Instead, all-inclusive commercial plazas are evenly interspersed across dense residential sections of the gorgeous 91790 to 91793 regions. Local residents enjoy career advancement opportunities offered via the business centers peppering the landscape today.

If you own commercial or residential properties across this area, you can maximize their revenue output by transforming them into high-quality rentals. Our team at Utopia Management will help you complete this transformation and begin netting great annual returns on your investments. With our services, you will enjoy:

Advertising Campaigns: We can help you create highly-effective advertising campaigns that will fill your vacant rentals with exceptional tenants. Our goal is to complete the marketing and screening process in record time to acquire a signed rental contract within 30 days. We never rush the process, however, and we’ll take our time to match your properties to ideal tenants through our strict screening process. Applicants must fulfill our income, rental history and background requirements to qualify for your rentals.

Management and Consulting: We can either handle every phase of the management process for you or teach you how to complete daily tasks on your own. Our full-service management plans are designed to maximize your revenues and minimize expenses without taking time out of your day. With our consulting program, however, you can learn how to best complete normal management tasks on your own to remain in direct control of your rental operations.

Property Upkeep: Using our general contractor’s license (Lic. #792427), our highly-trained repair pros complete all upkeep tasks required to maintain the quality condition of your rentals. We’ll complete timely routine maintenance and immediate emergency repairs as needed using our in-house team of repair experts. On occasion, we may tap into our network of approved third-party vendors for additional help as the situation calls for it.

If you’re ready to maximize the yearly returns on your investments, contact Utopia to inquire about our personalized rental management services. We look forward to helping you reach your unique goals.
