Serving All of Susanville
Susanville Property Management
Susanville is an area with limited rental properties, but this makes it a great opportunity for setting up your home as a rental instead of selling, and many people are not yet ready to commit to purchasing a home with these uncertain times. Rising employment opportunities in the area and an increased demand for rental properties makes this a great area to get started in rental properties.
However, we don’t recommend putting your home up as a rental on your own since the process can be difficult and long. Instead, you can trust us to handle all the details for you to optimize your property rental experience.
As a full-service property management firm, we have experience when it comes to handling all sorts of rental properties. We make it easier than ever for people to get the benefits of having a rental property. So, what exactly do we do for you when you come to us?
We make sure that the home is ready to be rented, and we even suggest the best price-point for the rental property.
We advertise this on the market to reach the largest possible audience.
We accept the applications for those who want to live here and use our tenant screening services to narrow down the best renters for you. These tenant screening services are going to include past rental history as well as all other applicable information so that the best decision possible is made.
We then handle all the day to day tasks. We will collect rent each month and address any problems with the property. The tenant will contact us for any and all problems that could arise.
In a nutshell, we take over the role of landlord for you. With our services you can trust that your home is in good hands, and you will find more success with having rental properties with us on your side compared to doing it on your own.

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.

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.
Quality Maintenance & Repairs
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
