Team Members

The Ahrens Team offers a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate in Maryland. Not only will you benefit from the team’s expertise in the local real estate market, but you will also work with a team you can trust for up-to-date information. 

Gary and Kathy Ahrens joined the real estate industry in 2000 by purchasing and renovating properties and have rented and sold numerous homes for their investment portfolio since then.  Kathy obtained her Realtor license in 2006, and Gary, after a 26-year career in education and nine years owning a home remodeling company, secured his license in 2013 to form the Ahrens Team. They have lived in the greater Baltimore-Washington area for decades and know the area and its real estate market thoroughly. They are known for their integrity, attention to detail, and caring customer relationships.

In 2019, the Ahrens Team expanded with the addition of Realtor Tim Halter. As a former full-time tennis professional, coach, and business owner, Halter brings 17 years of client care experience to his new role. The Ahrens Team also hired Maria Aukward as the new Operations Manager. Maria will assist the team with the client contract to close process and expanding the team’s brand on social media and through direct mail. 

The Ahrens Team has a wide network of trusted service providers they’ve developed over many years of conducting business in both real estate and home remodeling and restoration. And, as a team under the award-winning Keller Williams umbrella, they have direct and immediate access to myriad resources in the real estate industry. 

Ahrens Team realtors are members of the National Association of Realtors, Maryland Association of Realtors, and Howard County Association of Realtors. In addition, Gary and Kathy are members of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and KW Luxury Homes International. They serve on the Associate Leadership Council (ALC) at Keller Williams Realty Centre and are certified Quantum Leap (QL) instructors for educational nonprofit Keller Williams Kids Can (KWKC). Currently, Kathy serves on the board of the HCPSS Academy of Finance.

We are eager to serve you in the following ways:

Find Your Next Home

The Ahrens Team knows this region inside and out! We will work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter — not to mention the essential criteria you require for your next home.

Sell Your Home

When it’s time to move, you need a multi-dimensional team who will effectively market your home, show it to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee inspections, handle all necessary paperwork, and supervise the closing. The Ahrens Team takes care of everything you need from beginning to end.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics

Buyers don’t often visualize living in your home the way you do. The Ahrens Team can make your home attractive to its ideal audience — which will help you get top dollar. Staging your home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can make the difference between a home resting on the market and one that sells quickly.
