Serving All of Somis
Somis, a small unincorporated community in Ventura County, was first established as part of the Mexican land grant, Rancho Las Posas, in 1892. Originally, crops such as corn, wheat, and barley were grown here and then shipped to other areas by railroad. Today, Somis is still largely an agricultural area, although a small business sector exists along its main thoroughfare, Somis Road.
If you are looking for a team of property management professionals to manage your rental property in the Somis 93066 zip code, Utopia Management is here to help.

We use a blend of online and offline advertising methods, including placing listings for your property on the most popular rental websites.
Tenant Screening: To help source qualified tenants, Utopia Management puts every applicant over eighteen years of age through a thorough series of background and credit checks. We will contact former landlords to verify that they have been good tenants in the past and then do everything we can to ensure that you find a tenant who will live up to their end of the contract.
Management and Consulting: Your Utopia Management team of skilled professionals is specifically trained in the local Somis market, making them uniquely suited to advise you on matters such as assessing an appropriate rent for the area and how to improve your property to increase its value. We will also, of course, take over the day-to-day tasks of collecting rents and serving legal notices.
Maintenance and Repairs: We hold a general contractor’s license (#792427) that allows us to complete maintenance and repair work in-house, and we can also complete repairs by contracting the work out to one of our trusted third-party vendors. We have long standing relationships with many of these local vendors and oversee their labor to ensure that you always get the best quality workmanship, no matter who does the job.
Accounting: Our skilled accounting team works hard to provide you with the up-to-date and accurate information you need concerning the financial health of your property. You can log in at any time through the owner web portal on our website to check your monthly statement and see a complete record of all financial activity for your properties.
Your Somis property demands careful and thorough management, and you need the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the skilled professionals at Utopia Management are in charge.
