Marion has been selling real estate for over 30 years and become a prominent agent in the Fairfield County area. As the leader of the Marion Filley Team, she is able to share her passion for the business with like-minded team members; one of which is her husband, Patrick.
A Long Island native, Marion attended college in New York City majoring in Art History. Upon graduating, she worked for Frank Schoonmaker - an American travel guide writer and wine merchant. Marion has always had a love for travel and adventure; visiting places like Iran, Ethiopia, Myanmar and lots more!
She later became a lobbyist for a non-profit organization and was appointed by representative Carolyn Maloney to Community Board 11 in East Harlem before making one final career change into real estate.
Marion and Patrick eventually made their move out of New York where they had met. They settled in Wilton, Connecticut where they raised three daughters and welcomed 6 grandchildren.
A thirst for knowledge and passion for continued learning and growth are values Marion shares with Compass. Her real estate expertise, in tandem with Compass’ top-tier technology and marketing, allows her to not only meet her clients’ needs but to exceed their expectations.

"I have worked with Marion Filley over many years on all kinds of real estate searches and transactions. As both a realtor and a human being, she is in a class of her own. She is unfailingly helpful, resourceful, and kind, and lives to solve problems, not just those related to her profession. She treats her clients the way a good doctor does— addressing the entire person— helping them with their lives overall, not just a specific issue. It’s no wonder that so many of Marion’s clients become her friends.
Marion conducts all her negotiations with honor. She is even-handed, patient, thorough, and thoroughly professional. Her many years of experience and dedication to going above and beyond are evident at every stage of the process. She is unflappable and her calm demeanor, excellent sense of humor, and willingness to lend an understanding ear and provide moral support transform any transaction into a supremely smooth, comfortable, and successful experience."- xoxo Julia
