Get to Know Gary Ahrens

In my 26 years with the Howard County Public School System, I spent the majority of my time counseling and coaching.  Following my early retirement, I spent the next 7 years rehabbing 100 year old homes and running a professional remodeling firm.  In my career as a realtor, I call on all of that experience to serve my clients.  I spend time listening to their needs, coming alongside as a trusted advisor to help them find and buy a home or preparing for, marketing and selling a home.  This profession gives me incredible satisfaction knowing that a client has achieved their dream of home ownership or helping them successfully sell their home and move to the next destination with all the hopes and dreams therein!  I love what I do and I love those that I work with!!  Probably the coolest thing to happen to me is that a pair of young home buyers who we helped find and secure a house invited me and Kathy to their wedding!!  I love that.  It just doesn't get any better than that.

Kathy and Gary Ahrens are an amazing, accommodating, and efficient team! They helped my husband and I find our dream home when I was 9 months pregnant. At first we weren't quite sure what we wanted so they asked all the right questions to help us figure it out. Then they were really great at listening to our wants and needs and finding homes to view that matched them. They were very patient with the closing as well, considering at that point our first child was only weeks old and we were a little slow with the paperwork! I will definitely recommend them to anyone I hear looking to buy or sell. Buying our first home was an awesome, seamless experience thanks to Gary and Kathy.

We had a challenging set of criteria in our home search. Kathy was keenly attuned to what we were looking for, and she was an incredibly patient guide and partner for us as we went through a long and ultimately successful house-hunt.

Kathy handled our multiple needs to find a rental property prior to buying a home in a timely manner. After meeting with her and visiting several properties over a long weekend, Kathy was quick to pick up on our needs for both a rental property and a home. She found a house in a great school district being our eyes and ears in the Maryland market while we were still on the west coast. She made herself readily available after moving into the rental to find our home providing valuable information on neighborhoods, schools and shopping. She even went above and beyond talking to neighbors to find out answers to our questions. Kathy was a great realtor to work with always professional yet very friendly and easy to work with. We highly recommend Kathy as a realtor.

Kathy Ahrens helped us to buy our first home early this year. She really listened to our needs and was extremely helpful to us in finding the perfect home. With her help and expertise we were able to make wise decisions throughout the process and choose the home that offered all of the best options for us. Without Kathy, we would not be settled into our wonderful new home right now. We cannot thank her enough!

Working with Kathy Ahrens in selling our home was a treat - she was always accessible, knowledgeable, and offered great ideas to help make the house sell faster. In fact, she made us feel like we were her only client and was always looking out for our interests. Kathy understood our need to sell the house before the end of the calendar year, and she made it happen! We highly recommend Kathy if you need a realtor

Working with Kathy was such a pleasure! She paid attention to our wish list, glided through our picky-ness with a smile, and guided us to an incredibly smooth closing. She is very knowledgeable about the market, easy to get a hold of, and touring listings with her was great fun! She even came by to see our house again once we had settled in! We don't anticipate being in the market again anytime soon, but should that change for some reason, Kathy will be our first call!

No one works with you and looks out for the interests of your family better than Kathy. When she works with you you’ll forget that she is your realtor and start to think of her more as a super-intelligent friend with Realtor-like powers. Her knowledge of the area and ability to sniff out opportunities among the weeds will soon prove extremely valuable… especially when all those listings start piling up! She’ll look out for your interests and is always accessible. She is the realtor you're looking for.

Kathy can assist clients with a variety of home types. She was our realtor when we decided to sell our townhouse and move into a condominium. Our condominium purchase was smooth and quick. Kathy came to our townhouse and suggested some easy improvements that would help the townhouse show better. She was right on target. Once the improvements were made and the townhouse was put on the market we had 20 showings in 15 days and received a full-price offer. When some technical issues arose, Kathy went to bat for us and worked out a solution that was acceptable to us and to the buyers. Everyone was happy. Kathy will serve you well as a realtor.
