Patrick entered the Real Estate industry after 25+ years in book publishing and packaging. As a founding member of the Marion Filley Team Advantage, Patrick enjoys collaborating with some of the top agents in the New Canaan area.
Originally from Pittsburgh, Patrick moved around quite a bit while growing up. He made brief stops in Ohio and Virginia before eventually landing in New Jersey.
He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he graduated as an English major with honors in Creative Writing. Post-college, Patrick picked up and moved to New York City where he met his future wife and business partner, Marion, on a blind date.
He joined the workforce at Doubleday and Company, a book publisher in New York, before eventually forming his own book packaging firm, Patrick Filley and Associates.
Patrick’s impressive background also includes a march with Martin Luther King in South Boston, a dance with Janis Joplin, and crossing the finish line in the New York City Marathon.
After spending several years apartment hopping in Manhattan, Patrick and Marion made one final move to Wilton, Connecticut where they raised three daughters and welcomed six grandchildren.
Patrick’s passion for learning and innovation has propelled the Marion Filley Team Advantage toward its next chapter with Compass. He is excited to apply top-tier technology to help clients find their place in the world.
