The owner of SSPM, Nick Cook, is the most fair and consistent employer I have worked for. These attributes are important in a business dominated by personal interactions with clients and customers that are often mandatory or compulsory. Sleep Sound provided training and educational opportunities almost immediately to help employees understand the business. Nick provided guidance, a strong set of policies, and consistent application of those policies. That consistency lends employees confidence in the often difficult task of fairly receiving and processing applicants in a low supply high demand rental market. A team functions best when its members know how its leader is thinking and why, and Nick makes great effort to both educate his employees and disseminate knowledge to them that will help them understand changes in the law and how those changes may affect the employees. Listens and provides opportunity to hear and discuss feedback Keeps company promises made to employees Dedicated to a professional workplace policy Stays educated and passes on what he learns Great company to learn in and outs of Property Management The Sleep Sound team grew over my tenure and I found my colleagues to be motivated professionals with solid work ethics.
Property Management professionals are a nexus point for the often emotional process of acquiring and maintaining housing, and are sometimes treated disrespectfully by customers or clients for decisions they have little control over. As an agent of compliance, you will have to say no more than yes and handle the responses with professionalism.

If you like a place with growth opportunity and want to be part of a team that cares about your success, this is the place for you. I joined the team over a year ago and I have not regretted my decision for a moment. This company loves to invest in its employees and hardwork really does pay off. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the customers of Sleep Sound Property Management.
Being a small company, employee must pull their weight for the company to be overall successful. To that degree, nothing can be swept under the rug and always surfuces eventually.

I worked at Sleep Sound Property Management as a maintenance technician a little over a year and it was the best employment experience I have had thus far. First off, the Sleep Sound team is incredible. I have never worked with a more sincere, hard working group. The daunting "daily grind" was never a theme at work due to these people. Company outings were always a blast and so were the goofy office events. This workplace environment was made possible by the owner/operator, Nick Cook. If you are interested in working for a hardworking, intelligent individual who is interested in seeing you succeed both in your career and personally, Nick is the guy you want to work for. From personal talks about my goals to investing in furthering my education, I always felt like a valued team member and employee. I can't say enough good things about this company, and I say that sincerely. If you get the chance, I wouldn't hesitate to become part of the team.
Sleep Sound is growing quickly, and with that comes the inevitable: stress, and constant change. Growth always comes with growing pains. Some people see this as an unwanted necessity, but we saw it as an exciting challenge. So what would normally be classified as a "con" became a fulfilling reason to come to work.
