Our Story

TLC Property Management professionally manages more than 20 apartment communities in Springfield, Missouri. In business for over 25 years, the strength of the TLC apartment network enables us to effectively meet the needs of our residents and our clients.

Started in 1988 by Sam and Carol Coryell, TLC Properties remains a family owned and operated business. Their sons, Sam M., Daniel and David have also played vital roles in the development of the company. Since 1988, TLC Properties has grown from one rental house, in east Springfield, to more than 20 apartment communities and approximately 3,500 apartments. TLC was founded on the values of strong character, service, teamwork, excellence, humility and gratitude. In addition to these values, TLC operates on the motto, “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” Those values and the golden rule still hold true today, in all aspects of our business, from the corporate level to the property level. The effort and care taken by our company to offer the best product at the best price is why TLC Properties is a leader in the Springfield multi-family industry. As we move forward, we will continue to work hard and build even more meaning in our slogan, “We Are Apartments.”
