Sean Michaels - Managing Broker and President, Obsidian Property Management Ltd
Sean Michaels is the Managing Broker and President of Obsidian Property Management Ltd. Sean has dedicated his career to the study of strata; starting in 2005 when he was employed at the Financial Institutions Commission of British Columbia (“FICOM”). In that same year, he became the president of the strata where he lives. He helped establish operations of a 250+ unit self-managed strata; and has volunteered on the council several times since. In 2008 Sean passed his strata management licensing course; and promptly became licensed as a strata manager. Since then, Sean has deliberately managed as many different types of stratas/buildings, and continues to expand his education in this profession. To sum it in a word it has become his vocation. His previous experience as a Wal-Mart Assistant Store Manager, Regional Executive Assistant with Bulk Systems (a Trimac Company), and Administrative Service Manager at Thomas Skinner and Son; have provided transferable skill sets and practical application of his Business Management Diploma from Kwantlen Polytechnic University.
Beyond Sean’s professional career, he enjoys spending time with his family. Together with his wife Celeste and daughter Caelin, he regularly goes camping, trail walking, and to parks to experience and appreciate the outdoors. When the weather is less than pleasant Sean is known to indulge in computer and board games; immerse himself in a good sci-fi, fantasy, or action movie; and obsess over tweaking his home theater.
