Sarah (Meyers) Laulainen

Owner/Licensed Property Manager

Hello! I graduated from Montana State in 2006 (Go Bobcats!) with a bachelor's degree in Sociology, so some would say I have excellent people skills. I have been in the customer service industry professionally for 15 years, and in the property management industry for 7. I have a wonderful husband with 1 dog and 1 cat.  In my free time you will find me fishing the rivers around town or skiing in Big Sky.

Meet The Team



HOA Manager

  My love for adventure and community brought me to Montana in 2010 and I have been blessed to call the Gallatin Valley home ever since. Bozeman captured my heart not only because it provides world class mountain biking, camping, and snowboarding but because of its community. I love working with HOAs whose goal is to enhance connection and beauty within their neighborhood.

I love getting to know Bozeman and the amazing people that live here! I enjoy fishing, reading, hanging out with my favorite people, loving on my dog and traveling. I excited to get to know you guys and the world of property management! Go Cats!

Hi, I'm Sam!

I graduated high school in 2020 and love working here at Legacy! I love basketball, (Go Bucks!) and spending time with my family.  Outside of the office you'll find me on the trails dirt biking and snowmobiling, or in the mountains hiking and hunting! I plan to work my way up in the work force and enjoy all the great things life has to offer!

I am recently married and am loving life with my husband. We enjoy most activities inside or out. Excited to be a blessing to you as you find a new home! 



HOA Manager

Hello! I found my way from New Hampshire to Bozeman to study Marketing at Montana State. Once here, I fell in love with the area and you can find me biking, hiking, camping, and skiing all around the state. Along with me, you'll usually find an Aussie and a Border Collie that can get down a mountain faster than my friends. I strive to do anything in my power to help, so don't hesitate to call with any questions or concerns!
