Ann Bosley, Vice President
She began her Real Estate career in 1986. After selling successfully for over 8 years, she developed and taught the Real Estate realty training course, affectionately known as Bosley U. To date over 200 agents have successfully graduated from Bosley U to begin their career as knowledgeable professionals.
In 1993, Ann became Vice President of the firm and Manager of the branch at 290 Merton St, which resides in a very funky loft space in Central Toronto. She built the branch from 19 agents to over 50. You only have to look at the company award winners to see the success story of that branch.
In 1999, Ann became a Director of the Toronto Real Estate Board and went on, in 2002/2003 to become the TREB President, with the full support of the management team, her agents and staff. They fully recognized the value of being on the inside, making the decisions, rather than being on the outside, reacting to them. To this day, she continues to sit on the Arbitration Committee of the Board.
From TREB, Ann went on to serve as a Director of the Canadian Real Estate Association in 2004. She became President of CREA in 2007/2008, one of only 4 women to do so in the Board’s 70 year history. At the time, the Board was comprised of over 100,000 members across Canada. Presently, she sits on the international task force which helps to guide the United Nations through its new worldwide money laundering legislation.
In 2010, Ann passed the reins of her branch into the extremely capable hands of Brian Torry and she became the firm’s General Manager, overseeing the activities of all 4 branches with the President, her husband, Tom. This is the first time they have ever worked in the same building!
“Real Estate has been an extremely fulfilling career for me. It is fascinating, exciting and constantly evolving, but most of all, it is really fun!”

Bill Johnston, Broker/Manager
Mark McLean, Broker/Manager
As a 20+ year veteran of the real estate industry in Toronto Ontario, I have seen the evolution, success and eventual decline of many companies all trying to become dominant players in a highly competitive business. Throughout my career, I have always worked with boutique offices, those offices that tended to be local players in the market.
I was drawn to the personal nature of the small office. In January of 2007, I had an opportunity to become a partner in a high-end global real estate brand. This company had all the benefits of a high service, specialized, and local real estate marketing company with an affiliate network of over 500 offices around the world. In the first two years I built an office with 40 agents that was clearly a recognized luxury real estate brand in Toronto.
In January 2010, I accepted a management position with one of Toronto’s most successful boutique brokerages. Bosley Real Estate has roots in Toronto that go back 85+ years. This is a third generation family run company that continually invests in its future. Currently it has 3 offices and over 200 agents and support staff. The Bosley ”brand” represents history, integrity, and knowledge. Many members of the senior management team have held senior positions in the Canadian Real Estate Association, Ontario Real Estate Association, Toronto Real Estate Board and the Real Estate Council of Ontario. Other agents in the company sit on various real estate task forces including; the Green Task Force, the Youth Task Force, and the Condominium Task Force and we have some members who serve on Arbitration committees. Bosley Real Estate is not only a successful brokerage, but through their continual involvement is helping shape the industry as a whole.
