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. Gary and Kathy are members of the National Association of Realtors, Maryland Association of Realtors, Howard County Association of Realtors, the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and KW Luxury Homes International. Both Gary and Kathy 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.


In 2019, the Ahrens Team expanded with the addition of Realtor Tim Halter. As a former full-time tennis professional, coach, and business owner, Tim brings 17 years of client care experience to his new role. His interest in real-estate began out of necessity, and coincidence. As a full-time tennis professional for many years, Tim was looking to scale back his time on court and venture into the world of real-estate, a long-time interest of his. As fate would have it, Tim was put in contact with Gary and Kathy, and made an instant connection, as his wife was one of Gary’s former soccer players. Mentored by Gary and Kathy’s mentorship, Tim received his real estate license in 2019 and officially joined The Ahrens Team.

Maria is the operations manager for the Ahrens Team and also holds her real estate license. Maria’s day to day job involves managing the transactions for the team, overseeing all the details from the beginning through the end of closing. These include communicating with clients, title companies, lenders and other third parties involved in the transaction. Maria is very detail oriented and always happy to answer client’s questions, as this can be a stressful transaction.
