In May of 1996, Kathie Maestas received her Real Estate Salespersons' license. She has obtained her Graduate of the REALTOR® Institute {GRI), Accredited Home Stage Professional and Broker's designation. Kathie has served as President, Director and Secretary/Treasurer of the Garden City Board of REALTORS® and even earned the 1996 Rookie of the Year award. With lifelong connections, family & friends in Finney County, she is familiar with local trends & knowledgeable about property values. She is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, Kansas Association of REALTORS® and the Garden City Board of REALTORS®.

Kathie was raised in Garden City, Kansas. She and her husband, Pete, worked alongside Kathie's father from 1976 through 1997, at which they purchased the family business, Appelhans Oil Co. They continued to operate it until they sold and merged with the Garden City Co-Op. Kathie combined her career as a REALTOR® while also running the office at Appelhans Oil.

Over the last 20 years, Kathie has invested her time & resources in houses that may be a little tired & rundown. With the help of local talent, contractors & bankers, they've been transformed into homes that buyers & tenants are proud to call home. She has also been involved with building spec homes, rental properties & commercial real estate. Kathie feels that it's important for everyone to have a safe & clean place to live, no matter what price range. Every buyer and seller deserves individual attention to his or her needs.

Kathie and Pete have 3 grown children with families of their own. She loves spending time with her kids & grandchildren. Besides family time, she also likes traveling, camping, motorcycling and re-purposing discarded items into usable pieces of art. Kathie can see the beauty and possibilities in even the most lackluster item or property. This is a gift that assists sellers in marketing their property and buyers to see the potential in a property.
