Born and raised on the Southside of Edmonton, I am the youngest of 3 girls and arguably the ‘quiet one’ in our Family! Seeing as I was the shy one, my older sister encouraged me to pursue my first post-secondary job in sales; which she saw to be a big step outside of my comfort zone. It was a huge surprise to me and my family, that sales proved to be my ‘niche’ and provided the breeding grounds for much personal development.

I believe that I excelled at sales because I didn’t fit the stereotype of a typical ‘sales’ person. I wasn’t loud and ‘in your face’ and I especially wasn’t concerned with making a quick sale. If I didn’t fully believe in what I was selling, I wasn’t selling it. Period. I started out selling cell phones – I did this happily for 6 years and really learned how to hone my communication skills (no pun intended). Purchasing a cell phone can easily become a nightmare for people, especially when there are hidden terms and clauses in their contracts. I prided myself on being the best at explaining the fine print fully to my clients and getting them to understand their purchases, long before they signed on the dotted line.

I’ve also been a Certified Diamontologist and can evaluate the quality of any diamond; my clients today, in Real Estate, don’t question me when I tell them that a Property really is ‘A Diamond in the Rough.’ I know a gem when I see one;)

Cathy-mountainsI was introduced to real estate from the ground up, starting as an assistant, then moving into a buyer’s agent role before becoming a full-service agent. I absolutely love the satisfaction I get from doing this job. I feel that in many ways, I am a ‘realist’. I love that my clients often see things with rose coloured glasses, but I also enjoy being the one to keep them grounded and remind them of their ‘Real Estate Goals’ and how certain properties best meet their personal, financial, and long-term goals. I love helping my clients see the bigger picture in each property!

I am equally passionate about food and travel. I am up-to-date with every new Restaurant in Edmonton, and I know the best places to eat from personal experience. My view of the world as an Adult has largely been shaped by my extensive travels, and when I travel, I am unabashed to say that I am all about the food. I have had the privilege of eating a good meal in a few far off places including, Egypt, Jordan, China, Hong Kong, Panama, Thailand, Mexico, Vietnam and Cambodia.

Q&A With Cathy Nguyen, REALTOR®, Associate with Liv Real Estate

If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?

Buddha, as I strive for inner peace. A great explorer of anytime, I love hearing about new adventures and stories of bravery and facing adversity.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

I would buy a private jet and travel the world with my best friends and family.

What did you get into trouble for the most as a child?

Going into my parents closet with a pair of scissors and cutting up my all of my parents' clothes!

What’s your favourite restaurant in Edmonton?

Wildflower - they have a dynamic menu, and they always offer a different amuse bouche when I go, they blow my mind with flavour there.

What’s your favourite place to visit?

One of my best vacations was in Egypt and Jordan, I also took a 2.5 month trip through Asia which changed my life. I cannot wait to go back to Asia, there’s just so much to see there!

If you could personally witness one event in history, what would it be?

The formation of a lost city, like Atlantis, would be pretty cool.

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been” – George Eliot

If you could be a character in a book or movie, which one would you be?

I’d be an X-Man, with telekinetic powers, or I’d be Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, as I’m sometimes a geek and can be a bossy-pants.

Cathy did a great job looking out for us. We weren't knowledgeable about the home-buying process, but she made it easy and transparent. We'd recommend her in a heartbeat.

We personally enjoyed working with Cathy Nguyen in the purchasing of our home. She was honest sweet and understanding. Cathy took the time to answer any of our questions and went above her job requirements. An example of this, was when it came to our possession day, our home was quite dirty. This was a little disappointing to say the least, Cathy took it upon herself to hire cleaners to come clean the home so we didn`t have the added stress of cleaning and moving in. Cathy was a prime example of an employee who goes beyond the call of duty, and definitely will highly recommend Cathy and the Liv real estate team Thanks for making home buying an enjoyable experience!

Cathy Nguyen was very accommodating and over the course of two years showed me dozens of houses. Cathy was always upfront about the pros and cons of a property and never went for the "quick sale". She was very knowledgeable and gave good insights. Cathy was always very reachable and at all hours of the day. My wife and I are very happy with our new home and are thankful for the service that Cathy provided!
