The Story of Naming Obsidian Property Management Ltd.

Why Obsidian? The Short Story

Sean Michaels spent six (6) months writing a business plan prior to opening Obsidian. For five and a half months the company had no name. Each time Sean thought of something and checked the name, something similar already existed.

Sean and his wife Celeste are both avid computer gamers, and at the time were playing a great deal of Minecraft. One of the more difficult resources to collect in Minecraft at the time was Obsidian. So, one night as Sean was frustrated trying to find a name for his business, Celeste whimsically said why not call it Obsidian.

The name stuck and here we are.
