Shrewsbury, MA, March 25, 2019 — Thrive Real Estate Specialists, a real estate agency located in Shrewsbury MA is pleased to announce Grafton resident Ava Fantasia will join their team of Realtors.

Ms. Fantasia brings more than 30 years of combined experience in banking, marketing, and real estate to the Thrive team along with her dedication to quality customer service and many connections in Worcester County.  Ava’s passion for customer satisfaction is evident in every facet of her clients’ real estate transactions and drives her to produce positive outcomes for all.

“The decision to join Thrive Real Estate was an easy one. Owner Broker Maribeth Lynch’s real estate knowledge, commitment to her clients and integrity shines through.  I knew this was the place I wanted to resume my real estate career,” states Ms. Fantasia.

Upon meeting her, Maribeth realized immediately that Ava would be an ideal fit for the Thrive team with her warmth and genuine nature. She brings years of experience, a level-headed disposition, and a demonstrated willingness to serve her clients with the highest level of care and dedication.

“Ava approaches her work with the belief that owning real estate is a significant element in a person’s financial success and potential long-term happiness. Her history of facilitating the purchase and sale of single family, multi-family homes and land in Central Massachusetts has resulted in many long-standing client connections,” states Maribeth Lynch.

Ava and her husband of 37 years, Sal, purchased their first home in Shrewsbury in 1983. They now live on a small farm in Grafton in a multi-generational household that includes her parents, three thoroughbred horses, and a Jack Russell terrier named Lulu.
