Culfidant Community - Where our story starts

Culfidant is a new word created by combining “Cultural” and “Confidant“. It is our quest to connect people to share decency, care and trust. 

Culfidant community – is our first project to put this quest into action.  It connects decent landlords and tenants to “share homes” with decency care and trust instead of just “rent places” to get by.

Traditionally,  “landlords” and “renters” represents two opposite, even confrontational cultures. Crazy landlord/tenant dramas and episodes steeped in finger-pointing and blaming make media’s headlines frequently. 

We used to wonder if there is even a chance for landlords and tenants to share homes happily, to be decent and care each other, let alone to be friends. Luckily, our own less-common yet aspiring experience revealed how to make “impossible” happen naturally. 

In 2005, a few engineers founded Flying Stone Canada Ltd – a residential real estate investing company. After  many failures and setbacks, we have learned bit by bit that the only meaningful way to thrive in this business, is to connect naturally via decency, care and trust – Instead of merely “renting” houses, we start to focus on “sharing” homes happily. 

It started with tiny improvements first. Instead of turning a blind eye to the “dirty corners” around the house, we clean the home top to bottom as if it is for our long-time-no-see friends coming to stay; Instead of dragging our feet on maintenance issues, our well-trained maintenance staff are deployed within 24 hrs or less when the repair-request is received; Instead of putting money into advertising and marketing, we appreciate our long-term residents by giving out delightful gift every year …

Slowly but surely, our clients have started to react positively in return. Instead of treating the home they stay as a “rental” merely, they fix small issues around the house, just like they are staying at and caring for  a dear friend’s home. Instead of staying just a few months then moving-out with a mess behind, more and more chose to enjoy their homes year after year; Instead of complaining bitterly and fighting fiercely, they refer us to their friends whole-heartedly…

Simply through word-of-mouth,  more and more landlords and tenants have heard and joined us , and the so-called “Culfidant community” was born naturally to connect members with decency, care and trust, promote the best practice/guidelines, and enjoy the fruits harvested from the tree of trust between tenants and landlords. 

Indeed, we were lucky enough to stumble upon the powerful secret of  Culfidant – As a result, not only our business thrives, but also we have witnessed the wonder that has transformed each rental we have touched into something that human beings share and cherish the most – the home.

Now it is about time to share this treasure with the world…
