Personal Background

Having spent over 20 years in the hospitality, restaurant and hotel industry I had a made a choice to go into Real Estate to help people find their dream of owning a home. It has brought me great pleasure assist hundreds of people over the years move in and out of homes that they love. Its all in the details and I pride myself on giving the very best service to each and every one of my clients. Most of my business is now made up of personal referrals from past satisfied clients.


The communities I serve primarily are Danbury, Brookfield, Bethel, New Fairfield, Ridgefield, New Milford and Newtown. However, I can assist anyone anywhere through referrals to excellent agents anywhere in the world. I place the referral speak personally to the agent assigned and follow up to be sure you are receiving the same level of service that I would have provided. It has been very successful and the clients are thrilled to get so much information on their area of interest before even getting to the first visit.

I appreciate your business and take nothing for granted.

Marie Borner is a terrific agent and wonderful person. I have worked with Marie on various occasions and recently helped me find a new home. Marie knows her stuff and is honest. Always available and goes above and beyond to make sure everything works out. I would recommend Marie for buying or  selling a home. She gets the job done.
Jim C
Marie helped my wife and I purchase our home in 2003. We were new to the area but were very impressed with her knowledge of the Fairfield County area. I have kept in contact with Marie long after our home purchase was complete. She is a wealth of information of all things house related. Her  responsiveness to phone calls/emails/texts is excellent. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Fairfield County area
Mike & Cathy M
We had very little time to make our relocation purchase, and Marie got to know us (three generations in tow) quickly. She had our back, and had a full plate ready for us to see. The best part was that as she got to know us, she made adjustments to which houses we saw based on our responses. That  is someone who cares, and while we had to relocate again, we can say we really miss the house and community Marie helped us find. She is a true Pro, and someone our whole family considers a great friend. Encore, Marie!
Jamie & Rachel D
Marie helped us to find the perfect house when relocating from PA. She carved all the time we needed out of her busy schedule, was extremely responsive to email, phone calls, and texts and gave solid advice when bidding on homes. Even after closing she is responsive and very helpful when we have  questions. We would recommend Marie to anyone!
Mark & Alice R
Marie was my agent for buying my first home. She is very knowledgeable about the community; the home buying process; and negotiations. Marie will be with you every step of the way and is a wonderful advocate for her client. Should I need a realtor in the future, I will look forward to working with  Marie. 
Ann S
Marie is an extremely knowledgeable and dependable Real Estate Agent. Her expertise and guidance helped our family find the perfect home. Marie took the time to get to know our family and she is an extremely honest, responsive and devoted individual and agent. We were truly blessed to find Marie  and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sincere and extremely knowledgeable real estate agent!
Katie Q
can honestly say that working with Marie was a great experience!! From the first day we met, she took the time to understand what we were looking for in a new home, and was our advocate throughout the entire process. She always had our best interest in mind, and pushed things through to make  sure we closed on time!

Three years later we are looking to move again, and we will absolutely be working with Marie to list our current house and to help us find a new home!

I would absolutely recommend Marie to anyone looking to buy or sell in this area!!
Kevin Q
I highly recommend Marie Borner as a real estate agent. I worked with her to buy my first home and she is very knowledgeable about the area and is always there if you need her. She is an excellent advocate on your behalf. Working with her was a very good experience and I hope to work with her again  in the future. If I had to describe Marie in one word, I would say, "expert."
Ann S.
Definitely knows how to get the job done. She'll help you find what you want and help you along the way. When my mortgage broker couldn't get a mortgage she put me in touch with someone she knew which got the ball rolling and resulted in a mortgage and the purchase of a house.
Tom & Tricia P
Marie was such a pleasure to work with. When my husband and I began the journey of finding and buying our first home, Marie was the only realtor we spoke to over the phone who we decided to meet with in-person. And we are beyond glad that we did. Though we were not 100% ready on paper to buy at the  time - which Marie knew - she spent 4 hours driving us around the areas of Connecticut we were interested in (in the rain), showing us houses of all kinds, shortcuts to get to and from shopping areas and interesting landmarks we might want to visit eventually....knowing full well we were not putting in an offer any time soon. We stayed in touch for months and when it was time, she was helpful, patient and an essential resource. She put us in touch with lawyers, brokers, banks, etc. She let us chose our vendors all the way, but each one we selected from her pool of recommendations was better than the last. Our closing was seamless and she was involved in ever aspect - even calming my nerves at the closing table. Case in point: we closed on our house and moved in this week and she will be visiting as a guest soon. We got a fantastic broker and our first friend in CT out of Marie. I can't say enough good things about her.
Michelle M
She was recommended to me by a co-worker as part of a corporate relocation after my initial meeting with another agent was less than successful. Best move I could have made! Always available, extremely knowledgeable and very well connected in the greater Danbury, CT real estate community. She supported a tough client (me) with tremendous aplomb. For anyone looking for an agent (especially one familiar with the challenges of corporate relocation), I most strongly recommend Marie. I have dealt with a lot of agents over my 25 years of relocating for the Navy and for Eaton Corporation. She is one of the very best. 
Heather B
We must have looked at 20 homes and Marie was with us every step of the way, pointing out zoning issues, maintenance and improvement considerations and neighborhood history. Ultimately, the home we purchased was one Marie brought to us.
Jeff G
Marie was amazing to work with. Not only was she knowledgeable and honest, she would always take a moment to ensure that we were comfortable with any part of the transaction. When we were 1st time homebuyers, we did not have the best experience and were really skeptical about the real estate  process in general. Marie turned that opinion around when she helped us sell our home and buy our forever home. She was meticulous and couldn't have done anything more to make the process run smooth. My wife and I couldn't have done this without her! Thanks Marie!!!
Michael D
Marie was an incredible help in buying my first home. She was responsive, professional and flexible. She advocated for me with the bank and the lawyer and helped me to prioritize and stay organized.
Carly V
Marie helped me find and buy the exact home I was looking for. She was always there when I needed her and very helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend her.
Katie H
t was a real pleasure to work with Marie Borner. I bought a house 13 years ago and Marie was my best real agent. And this year she was my sales agent. Marie is a great professional, knowledgeable, an excellent expert in real estate business, committed and dedicated one. She addressed all my  questions, communicated timely and followed-up on any issues, provided recommendations and information right away. Marie did great job for me. I would strongly recommend her for all the customers.
Tatiana D
Marie is a wonderful person and realtor. She was very honest and upfront with us about everything. If anyone ever needs a recommendation, I would definately recommend Marie.
Judy R
This was my second time around working with Marie. She is very prompt and professional at all times. I would highly recommend Marie to anyone who might be looking to purchase or sell their home.
Anna P
I have used Marie for multiple real estate transactions both purchase, selling and renting. She knew exactly how much we should list our house for and she sold it in less than 30 days. She has helped with renting my apartments and in purchasing investment priorities. I highly recommend Marie for  all your real estate needs
