Mariah Armknecht is a licensed real estate agent with Elite Homes Christie’s International. Working alongside her business partner and mother, who has her own 27-year successful history, Mariah brings an instinctual grasp of the local market and an insatiable desire to help others fulfill their dreams of home ownership and get the most out of their investments. Clients are drawn to Mariah’s warmth and courteous charm and stay for her keen business and marketing insights.
Prior to real estate, Mariah’s career experiences have been impressive in number and reach. After graduating from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a Bachelor of Science degree in integrated marketing communications and a minor in business management, Mariah became a sought-after model in ad campaigns for the likes of Nikon Camera, Hilton Resorts, ESPN, as well as Luxor, MGM, and Mandalay Bay. This work has given her worldwide connections, helping generate prodigious exposure for her clients’ listings. While busy modeling, Mariah has always stayed close to real estate from her parents. From an early age, Mariah watched and often participated in helping her father renovate and sell homes, and learned a great deal about the business from her real estate mother (a 27-year Ruby Award - business - winner).
Now, Mariah brings her varied backgrounds into her work as a real estate professional, specializing in the Summerlin communities, as well as Henderson and Northwest Las Vegas. She enjoys helping sellers and buyers with significant life transitions, whether it’s moving across town, out of state, or into retirement.
Mariah approaches each real estate client and interaction as unique, and all equally important. To her, a home is the foundation of a family, where love and connections are built. To that end, Mariah pays close attention to what her buyers are looking for in a home, as well as understanding her sellers’ objectives. Her goal is to not only satisfy their needs, but also give them a relaxed and comfortable real estate experience along the way. Mariah’s connections to designers and wholesale products for home renovations are a major plus. She often sells homes over their list price by enhancing a home’s features, creating curb appeal, and tailoring specific marketing practices to reach the right audience.
In addition to her time spent with clients, Mariah pays it forward, hosting confidence seminars, and organizing programs like a “Day of Beauty” where she brings various beauty technicians together for a day of pampering and esteem-building for over 300 women in Las Vegas shelters while also providing clothing donations and toys for children. Mariah also enjoys skiing, visiting vineyards and traveling around the world with her husband, taking cooking classes in every place she visits. One for adventure, diving with tiger and Galapagos sharks is not a new experience for her.
