She is also recognized in local and national media as a real estate marketing expert. She is currently one of the hosts on “Ladies Night”, a local cable television show.
Maribeth’s real estate career began in the late 1980’s, when the real estate market was turbulent due to high mortgage interest rates and an uncertain economy. This taught her the value of focusing on each client’s specific circumstances and creating a strategy to help them meet their goals. Her genuine empathy for her clients prompted her to find solutions to the toughest problems. This sincere dedication, along with her tireless negotiation and diligent handling of every detail, gave rise to her success.
When Maribeth took time away from the industry to raise her children, she channeled her love of helping people into volunteer work. She served in various capacities with public schools, a library expansion project, and the nonprofit Shrewsbury Youth & Family Services. She continues her civic participation today, and serves as an alternate member on the Zoning Board of Appeals. Her continual involvement with the community has given her a unique level of local insight and a vast professional network.
After a successful 12-year career with a large real estate franchise, Maribeth founded THRIVE Real Estate Specialists in order to provide a higher level of service to her clients. She uses a professional team for support services, and leverages technology to deliver the very latest information to her clients. Maribeth is highly proactive and responsive to her client’s needs, returning calls promptly, and offering experienced advice that is extremely valuable to her client’s interests. Maribeth believes in fully informing her clients of all pros and cons, so that they can make the best possible decisions.
During her life and career in Metro West Boston, Maribeth has developed strong real estate expertise in the markets of Wellesley, Hopkinton and Shrewsbury. Her passion for real estate is only eclipsed by her concern for the well-being of her clients. Over the years, Maribeth has received numerous client testimonials and accolades that speak to her uncompromised service and professional integrity.
When she is not working, Maribeth enjoys spending quality time with her family, including her husband Rick, three children, two stepchildren, and a rambunctious GoldenDoodle named Ava. She enjoys home décor projects and sewing, as well as browsing Pinterest and Houzz for new ideas. She loves the strong sense of community and civic pride in Shrewsbury, and continues to discover new adventure in the Metro West area.

Maribeth was great through our whole home buying process. From start to finish she was quick to respond, knowledgeable and supportive of our goals. She was a great advocate for us and made sure we didn’t miss any opportunities. Maribeth cares about her clients as friends and will do everything in her power to get you into the house you are searching for.
On a recommendation from a close friend, we reached out to Maribeth when we began our home search last summer (2015). From our first conversation, we felt that Maribeth was open, honest, familiar with our target area (Boylston, W.Boylston, Sterling, Lancaster) and would be there to support us and be our staunch advocate every step of the way. Those initial impressions were ultimately proven correct as we ran into a few issues during the home inspection. During this time Maribeth kept a level head and continued to provide her honest feedback to us, good or bad. This is the quality we valued most in her.
Maribeth is personable, professional, knowledgable and passionate about her work. These attributes are very important during the stress of the home buying process and she really made ours an enjoyable experience throughout. As a result of her dedication, we were lucky enough to find the perfect home and, in the process, made a friend in Maribeth. We can’t thank you enough!
We felt very lucky to work with Maribeth as our home listing agent. Maribeth and her team are very professional. She gave us the helpful advices on necessary improvement of the home before listing, and came out right price for market. Her marketing team did very good job on marketing and staging the home, took really nice photos and wrote better descriptions. She has group of professional contractors, did really good job on renovation and repairs. Maribeth really took care of our home well.
Maribeth and her team are very responsive and hard-working. Sometimes we can get her email or message in the really early morning and late night. She put a lot attention for details and communicating with clients effectively, which makes our whole home selling process as smooth as possible.
Overall we are very happy about the service which Maribeth provided. I give Maribeth my highest recommendation.

I recently sold a condo in Westborough with the help of Maribeth Lynch. I am really happy that I chose Maribeth as my real estate agent. In our first conversation, Maribeth said: “Your problem will be my problem, and I will do my best to solve it”. She truly lived up to these words. I had a stressful family situation and needed to sell the condo quickly. Maribeth came up with creative marketing technique, and I had a closing within two months. Along the way, Maribeth patiently explained pros and cons of different options; she returned my calls and emails within an hour or less. During the selling of my condo, my father ended up in a hospital for a month; it was a difficult time for me. Maribeth was very understanding of my time constraints, she helped me by doing some things that I was supposed to do myself. She showed true kindness and supported me like a friend would, at the same time being professional and trying to take as little of my time as possible. Now that the condo is sold, I find myself missing Maribeth’s warm presence in my everyday life. I hope Maribeth and I will stay in touch.
I highly recommend Maribeth to anyone who is looking for an experienced and professional real estate agent that will understand specifics of your situation and do their best to help you.
