Philosophy They say if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. That’s my motto for why I became a Realtor. I really enjoy everything about Real Estate. It’s the challenge of matching someone’s needs to a home that achieves their goal. Whether it’s a couple downsizing to a smaller home for less maintenance, or a growing family upsizing because they need more space, the Real Estate process is very rewarding to me. For sellers, it’s interesting to analyze the current and “sold” Real Estate market to determine a reasonable price for a home, so it sells quickly and for the highest possible price.
Experience, and Community Connections I grew up in New Hampshire and have lived in the beautiful Seacoast area for over 20 years. I enjoy meeting new people, asking questions and listening to give advice in the buying or selling process. My previous careers in Broadcasting, Advertising Sales and Marketing have been a tremendous help to me in developing and honing strong communication and negotiation skills - which translates well in Real Estate. Home decorating and staging is a passion for me, and I’ve recently completed the Home Staging Advocate Certification. I am excited about the opportunity to work at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services-Verani in Exeter. I live in Hampton with my husband and two children.

Ask MB Parkinson
“Great job Mary Beth! Excellent communication, professionalism and follow through. Thank you for your outstanding work.”

- MaryAnn Gately
“Mary Beth stayed with me for over 2 years. She is a whiz at knowing how to stage a home to bring out the best it can be. She is aggressive and dedicated to her clients. She was always right there when I needed her and never did I have the feeling that she was rushing me into something. I would certainly recommend her to any of my friends.”
- Elaine White
“MB helped me sell my first home and purchase my second home. She was very attentive to every little detail and her communication was phenomenal. There was not a single moment during the sale of my first home and the build of my second home where I felt like I was out of the loop. MB even provided me with a means of communication while she was out of the country on vacation! I could not be more satisfied with service and genuine kindness provided by MB. 10/10, highly Recommend!”
- Justin Doty
“MB has been great to work with. She got my house sold quickly and helped me through what I thought were some very stressful negotiations. Everything was prompt, and no matter the time of the day she was always willing to answer my numerous questions. The process of both selling and buying a house certainly is not an easy one. But having MB there to help made it a lot better. She is very knowledgeable about the current market and truly wants the best outcome for her clients.”

“Mary Beth Parkinson is an exceptional, dedicated salesperson. She recently sold a piece of property for me and from the very first day I knew I could count on her to work with me from beginning to end. She was innovative in her approach to staging my condo and in actually doing much of the work to make is presentable for clients to view. She was constantly in touch with me after every showing and ultimately brought in the lovely folks who bought it. Anyone who uses Mary Beth as their agent is lucky indeed! Rose Perry”
