Utopia Management
The Quality Company

Serving All of Kent

The Kent area is highly attractive to those who are looking to rent a home rather than buy at this moment. And for those who own property, it can be the perfect time to turn this property into an investment that pays you well into the future. But, should you go at this alone? No! If you have never managed property for then trying to do this on your own is going to be a huge headache. You will find that it is almost a full time job, and if you already have a full time job, you may find yourself feeling as though you have no time for family or friends. In addition, when you don’t know what you are doing you are setting yourself up for a disaster.

We verify identification, social security cards and pay stubs, along with contacting prior landlords for recommendations, keeping the delinquency rate to a minimum. Our thorough screening process for potential tenants has consistently kept our eviction rate at less than one percent.

Utopia also provides our owners with the optional “Utopia® Eviction Protection Program” for further peace of mind.  As a management company, we have many procedures in place to assist in the elimination of potential liabilities.
