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.

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.

Testimonials


I used Cathy Nguyen as agent in the purchase of my first home. Cathy took lots of time with me, was not pushy, and was very patient in the viewing process. She had great recommendations and did not oversell any of the properties she showed me. Overall I felt comfortable in dealing with her, that she had my best interests in mind and would not recommend a purchase that she knew was not right for me. I would be happy to use Cathy's services again.

We are new immigrants, not from Edmonton and this is our very first time buying home. Cathy asked us lots of questions to make sure she understood our demands. She went extra mile to ensure that we fully understood the process and clear up any doubts that we had (we actually asked a lot!). She also did an excellent job during the viewings to thoroughly check all aspects of the home. We are so happy that we met Cathy and would recommend her to anyone.
Minh and Thu, Fort Mcmurray, left feedback 2 months ago
It was my first time buying and I am not from the city of Edmonton. Cathy was very transparent with the purchase details, and I bought with ease. I could trust her and her honesty, thoroughness, and professionalism was greatly appreciated. My husband who has very much experience buying property said we could not have asked for a better realtor. Thank you Cathy, for making Edmonton our new home. We would highly recommend her. If we ever need a realtor, we’ll be calling her again!
