Andrea Florian - Florian Realty Team


Andrea grew up in North York at a time when farmland still populated some of the landscape. After studying classical music, she packed her bags and guitar and hit the road in a maroon Neon to travel the world. During that time, she cut CD’s, performed at several high profile music festivals, graced the pages of New York Billboard Magazine and had a video featured on Much Music and MTV.

Back in Toronto, she went on to manage a family-owned health food store and pharmacy, and started the Avenue Road Business Network. In managing the daily operations from purchasing to training, Andrea developed many of the keen business skills she brings to her position today.

Today, she lives in Burlington, with her husband, three children and two cats. Andrea and her family are involved in the school and business communities and would love to eventually make the move to quiet country living with some chickens, and maybe, just maybe, a dog.

Laura Gill


Laura was born and raised in Oakville, Ontario and now lives in Burlington with her husband and two children. Her love for Italian food was born from her first job as a hostess at The Olive Garden. (she still loves the breadsticks!) A long-time marketing professional for a Toronto law firm, she brings finely honed business skills to the negotiating table.

In her free time, she bends it like Beckham on a local recreational soccer team. With a larger-than-life personality, Laura infuses spirit and enthusiasm into everything she does.

Fun fact: when Laura meets someone from a different culture, she makes it a mission to learn about their language!
