90 Years and Counting...

Bosley Real Estate is a company rich with history. Come along on our journey as we show the instrumental impact the Bosleys and their family brokerage have had over the years on the evolution of our great city and of course, the real estate industry as a whole.

Our Journey

Once upon a time there was an entrepreneur by the name of William Henry (W.H.) Bosley. His journey began with a bang in the 1920's when W.H. assisted in the formation of what is now commonly referred to as The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB). Upon completing this historic feat, he ventured on to create his very own brokerage in 1928, originally known as W.H. Bosley & Co.

In 1953, William Henry sold the Brokerage to his two sons, Murray and Raymond Bosley. It was from 1928-1975 that the brokerage quickly became known for assembling very large plots of land for future development on sites today known as Toronto City Hall, the downtown Bank of Nova Scotia, Stelco, Erie Steel and lastly, the Ford Plant located in Oakville.

In 1985, Raymond's son, Thomas Bosley, purchased the brokerage from his father and uncle. After spending over 15 years working in the family business, Tom chose to forge his own path. He quickly retooled the brokerage from what was previously known as a commercial brokerage with an extensive appraisal division (Murray's speciality) to what is now known to be an incredible residential real estate company. Residential real estate was Tom's passion and you can feel that every day walking through the floors of our homey offices.

The Bosley's contribution to organized real estate in Toronto is unparalleled. Every Bosley leader has at one time been President of the Toronto Real Estate Board - Ann Bosley included! Throughout the years, Bosley has had...
