Heather Ahrens

Realtor®

Heather Ahrens is no stranger to making her clients into a top priority. Heather started out in healthcare and served others there for many years. When that started to take a toll on her own health, she knew she needed to find a different way to use her compassion to help others. Through realty, Heather has gained a special love for first-time homebuyers and the aging population who are transitioning. Her personal tagline is, “Your Realtor for every stage in life” and it fits!

Heather is also very involved in the community. She is Treasurer of the Boone Action Association, Volunteer Coordinator for the Boone River Valley Festival, and Vice President of Boone Area Women of Today. Being a contributing member of her community and part of her clients lives is essential for Heather, so that she can provide the same service that she would expect.

When she is not busy working for her clients, she can be found with her husband Jason and even though they are empty-nesters, their two children, the family dogs, and her favorite nephews and nieces. Heather has really enjoyed helping their children in their own home-buying processes. She also has fun with photography and all of the beautiful landscapes the area has to offer. Heather's dedication to customer service and fun personality will soon turn clients into friends.
