Ariel Ives
Real Estate Advisor

Originally from the midwest, Ariel has called the west coast ‘home’ for a decade. She resides in Southern Highlands with her family of five and absolutely loves the growth in the area. Being a homeowner, she understands the importance of location, creating a cozy space from a ‘canvas’, and providing stellar service to her clientele. 

Prior to Real Estate, Ariel was in the medical field. A year after the birth of her daughter, she decided to retire from management and be home with her family. Thus, hello Real Estate! “Real Estate kind of found me, it was suggested that I look into it due to my background in management mixed with my love for helping people.” 

Ariel builds rapport with new clients instantly, her ability to connect is based on listening to their wants vs. needs, sharing current market trends, advising with directional emotion, and keeping communication concise. Delivering an expectation of stellar service is set with her clients from initial contact. Her business vision is to carry on The Mendez Team’s legacy after Javier is partially retired and periodically checking in from Costa Rica. She thoroughly enjoys mentoring new agents on the team and propels them to their fullest potential. 

Besides Real Estate, her passion is providing the best life for her family. With her children being the core of her ambition, “Seeing my kids have great hearts and kind souls is an attribute they were all born with.” She is a firm believer in compassion and empathy for others and looks forward to seeing her children grow up to be kind and driven individuals. Paying homage to her father, he has always shown her that “she can be whatever she wants to be if she sets her mind to it.” Having his full support through the transitions in her life, Ariel and her father have a close bond. Family oriented and rooted, she loves her family values!

When Ariel is not busy with her clients, you can find her at a Golden Knights game with her husband or hanging out at Mountain’s Edge Park watching her son’s baseball game while her two other children are running around playing. During the holiday season, she travels to Germany to visit in-laws and dives into the culture. Prost! 

Lounging in an overwater bungalow in the Maldives is on her bucket list, very soon. 

Whether you are looking to sell your home, purchase your first home, build your investment portfolio, or are curious about the market, Ariel is always one call or message away from “helping you find your way home.”
