Who We Are and How We Work
Since 1988, Laurel Property Services has been an important part of the Golden community. We started small, as Laurel (Laurie) Johnson’s American dream. Today’s company has 300 rental properties under management and a new owner.
In 1994, Laurie Johnson took Sondra Welsh under her wing. Sondra started as a member of the cleaning staff, but Laurie knew she had more potential. Sondra grew up in Cheyenne, Wyoming, helping her grandmother run her local property management company. Real-estate was in her blood.
By 1999, Sondra became the company’s owner. Equipped with many years of property management experience and bountiful lessons from her wonderful mentor, Sondra has successfully carried on Laurie’s legacy. She’s been a mentor and a community leader.

What Makes Us Different
What sets us apart from other Property Managers in our area, is how invested we are in our business and clients. We eat, breathe, and sleep Property Management. Our licensees attend hours of CE, beyond what is required as the minimum in Colorado Real Estate Commission. We are very active members of NARPM, expanding our knowledge and network on a consistent basis. We attend NARPM lunches every month, the local chapter conference once each year, along with the national annual conference. While other companies may not update or change their policies for extended periods of time, LPS is constantly evolving. We update our leases, management agreements, and office policies to accommodate changes in trends and legislation. This allows us to grow while protecting our clients’ interests. We strongly believe that Property Management is not an industry that allows you to stay stagnant or comfortable. This industry is ever changing, and it is critical to have a Property Manager who is on top of these changes, modifying their business practices to stay compliant
