I'm taking the time to let you know how much I appreciate Sandra and Friday. They have enforced rules, and really made a difference. I personally have never felt more secure.
We wish to express our appreciation of the managers. Both Sandra and Friday have been courteous, friendly, and helpful in all situations that have occurred. Friday has always been very prompt in repairing anything, no matter what time of day or night. Sandra is always very helpful with any information we might need. We have never felt like we needed to complain about anything.
It has been a plethora of mishaps with Utopia. They were terrible at not returning phone calls timely whenever we started looking at a property they were managing. They certainly don t make it convenient to view a property either. That should of been our first clue that this was not going to be a good relationship. We rented the property because we liked it so much, and were on a time crunch. The property was not ready on time and not cleaned when we were ready to move in, they gave us the wrong keys to the house, couldn t give us the mailbox number, didn t have the garage door openers, gave us the wrong set of HOA rules, didn t tell us which utilities we needed to put in our name, trash days, etc, etc....The small things that really make a difference. We did have a maintenance staff member come over today, and he has been the nicest one we have dealt with so far. Good luck getting anyone to call you back or get your property manager on the phone. I have been disappointed with their services. Just an FYI - Their leases auto renew for 1 year after it is up and the rent goes up 5% automatically. You can contest this - but you have to do it 60 days before the end of your lease.
not good – Don't get scammed by Utopia. I have recently rented a house through Utopia management and my experience with them so far is horrible. First of all when I viewed my house it was completely dirty and the carpet was in its worst condition (black patches everywhere). I was repeatedly told by the management that the house will be cleaned properly before they hand it to me. I went ahead and signed the lease by taking their word and by the day I moved in, first thing I noticed was the horrible stench, filthy carpet, clogged toilet and window blinds covered with fungus. I called themanagement and they fixed only the clogging toilet since it was an emergency and for the filthy carpet I was told that I agreed to take the house as it is (which I never did) and they will not do the carpet cleaning. So I called the management6 days in a row and left 6 voice mails (btw, they never pick your calls) and I haven't heard from them till date. I went ahead and arranged a carpet cleaning service to do the job and paid more than hundred bucks from my pocket, even then the carpet is still dirty and beyond cleanable condition and I have to live with that for the rest of the lease term. Finally I read the rental agreement carefully and it was most ridiculously drafted agreement in such a way that you will never get back your security deposit and your rent will go up by 5% automatically at the end of lease term. I'm sure that all the 4-5 star ratings you find in Google reviews are written by the management and not by any real tenant. If you want to read more horror stories about them please visit Yelp and read them by yourself. Tl;dr - You may find nice houses managed byUtopia, but don't fall into their trap.
Impressed – On Saturday I had an appointment with Utopia to see a house. The agent impressed me because he was very knowledgeable and gave me all the time I needed to look around on my own. He answered all questions to my satisfaction and I decided to apply for the property.
great management – On the rare occasion that I have had a reason to call them, they are always friendly and willing to help. I appreciate that and it makes me feel good theres a caring voice ready to help!
Property Management in SD – When I had to move to LA for a teaching job I was so upset, I love my downtown condo. I tried to sell the property but with the way prices have dropped I couldn’t get the money I needed. Dealing with Utopia was easy from the beginning and continues to be so. The first person I met at my house was fantastic and gave me great inexpensive ideas to get my place ready to rent. Within days of our meeting my property was advertised. I especially like the video of my property on their website. We were able to rent my place quickly and it has been a huge stress relief having them take care of my place.
* Utopia! * – Utopia Management was very helpful and paitent with me. I rented a condo from utopia and when I had maintenance issues the maintenance department was always very helpful and handled the issues promptly! Every time I called the receptionist was really sweet and the customer service was on point...
Great job! – As an owner of a property in San Diego and I living out of town I am happy to say that Utopia Management has done a great job with getting my unit back up and rented in a timely manner once the old tenants moved out.
In this economy it is very important to me to have that secondary income coming in and they were able to get all the maintenance done in a timely and cost effective manner that allowed my unit to be rented very quickly and get that income coming in.
Utopia thanks – Thank you for helping me out Utopia! I was in a real bind trying to find a tenant for my place before I deployed…I went to Utopia and they were phenomenal in finding me a tenant in two weeks. They also helped show me what I needed to do to have my place looking top notch to attract a tenant as well.
Thank you to my property manager
