My Real Estate Philosophy:
I use my extensive knowledge and contacts to share the unique, hard-to-find properties you’ve always wanted to come home to. My experience—combined with well-earned negotiation, communication, and people skills—make me the ideal partner in this complex, competitive industry. Whether you’re looking for something cozy and informal or a house with some “wow factor,” I’ll put you in the perfect place. I’m about matching your unique style with the neighborhood you’ll fall in love with.
I also have an extensive skillset in selling homes—I’m in your corner when it comes to listening, fighting for what is important to you, and being available and transparent in my communication. And isn’t that what you want? A reliable, experienced agent who’s in your corner when it comes time to make a move?
My Approach to Real Estate:
Let’s cut the jargon and talk about what REALLY matters: YOU. None of my facts and figures and strengths matter at all if I’m not really listening to you and your vision. If you’re buying a home, the end result is for you to find the place you’ll love to come home to every single day, and my passion is partnering with you to do that, whatever it takes. If you’re selling your home, the end result is for you to feel so comfortable with the process that you fist pump the air at the accomplishment. I want you to be thrilled with the outcome -- that is my priority.
Fun Facts About Me:
I’ve lived in great communities all over the U.S., Europe/UK, and New Zealand/Australia. I’ve been a bartender in London, owned a fashion manufacturing business in Auckland, trained bankers and CEOs alike in NYC, and even experienced San Francisco for a bit. Stellar customer service is my hallmark and my standard.
I love being active in Colorado and Denver! Skiing, adventure travel, golf, art, cooking, and finding those new hidden gems of restaurants, shops and galleries— anything that smacks of unique experiences, I’m up for, so I know all the great places around here for a local adventure. Just ask!
"We hired Laura Tykodi to sell our home in Broomfield, CO. It was one of the EASIEST transactions we have ever had in Real Estate. She has her “stuff” down, and I really felt SAFE and confident in her ability to market our home correctly."

"If everyone operated their business as well as Laura and her team, the world would be a wonderful place!!!!!"

"Cheryl and I have gone through a process which included communicating with a number of Real Estate Professionals, meeting with some of them, and then evaluating the information provided by each, their communication, responsiveness, personalities, and their professionalism.
We were impressed quite frankly with the package that you provided, the communication and responsiveness we have received and the rest of the “package” called Laura. We like very much the idea that you are local and have committed to “managing” our home once we are absent until it is sold.
As a result, Cheryl and I have chosen you to be the person we work with, and who represents us, in the selling of our home. We very much look forward to working with you."
Cheryl and John W.
"We hired Laura Tykodi to sell our home in Broomfield, CO. It was one of the EASIEST transactions we have ever had in Real Estate. Some of the things I really appreciate that Laura did was to make the process so easy. She has her “stuff” down – the processes, systems, the marketing – and I really felt SAFE and confident in her ability to market our home correctly. I have bought and sold over 7 houses now, and our experience with Laura was VERY good. We are now living our dream in South Florida! You are in good hands with Laura."
Joe and MaryLeigh F.
"Laura, Linda and I so appreciated the way you helped us. If we need to use a Realtor again, you would be at the top of our list. We really enjoyed working with you. You were always on top of things and kept us up to date on what was going on. You are the best!"
Ron and Linda J.
"Thank you Laura Tykodi of PorchLight Real Estate so very much for your skilled,
professional, knowledgeable, friendly, caring and effective services as our Realtor.
Laura impressed us immediately with her skill and professionalism. Despite being brand new
with PorchLight, her approach, her confidence, her "can do" attitude and her knowledge and
grasp of the wonderful PorchLight tools and services and what they brought to the process of
selling our home was incredible.
I have sold twelve homes during my "career years". I have never had the pleasure of experiencing anything like the outstanding service I received from Laura Tykodi and PorchLight. All the boxes were ticked, all the 'T's were crossed, all the 'I's dotted. Laura brought the PorchLight team into the process at all the right times with maximum effect. Together Laura and the PorchLight team made what can be a very stressful process as easy, as pleasant, and as effective as possible."

Our Certified Market Expert designation is the only one of its kind. Agents choose from three area-specific certifications—Central Denver, South Suburbs or North Suburbs—and become experts in that area.
Agents who earn this elite designation have not only completed our Market Ed courses—learning the ins and outs of their specialty area's cities and neighborhoods—but they've previewed dozens of homes in each area, giving them an insider's perspective on the nooks and crannies of the metro Denver area. They know what kind of architecture each area offers, and also know the special restaurants, shops, and attractions that make each neighborhood unique.
When you choose an agent with one or more CME designations, you know you're getting a trusted advisor who will guide you in making the smartest real estate investment possible while also finding the community that's the right fit for you.
