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.

What’s your favourite quote?

“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.


She was the best agent I have met. Would love to work with her again. Such a happy and easy going agent that helped us through every level of the purchase. Nothing but good things to say!!

Cathy is professional and Very respectful; I’m not into small talk and am actually very private; Cathy struck the perfect professional balance. She lives up to expectations in this regard (high intuitive professionalism). I didn’t use another realtor because I didn’t like the “hey I’m gonna be your new best friend” approach which feels disingenuous. Cathy was very personable and has strong emotional intelligence. To add to this she’s practical, knowledgeable and well connected; and got our house sold in a difficult market place (very full inventory, many similar homes nearby) and at a time of financial restraint for many families. She was very timely, easy to get hold of, very quick at responding and kept us up to date. She’s good with texts and emails which really worked for us because phone calls can be intrusive and oftentimes I can’t chat on the phone when I’m working. Definitely recommend Cathy, she knows her stuff and she will get your house sold.

Cathy was awesome and went above and beyond in the sale of my condo. In a challenging market, I was always kept up to date with the status of my unit, she ensured that I got the maximum value of my place and always had a strategy. To me her proficiency and skillset was apparent when dealing with the buyers agent and presenting the sentiments and value I saw in my unit. I appreciated her making it as easy as possible for me while I was dealing with an inter-provincial move and she was always quick to respond. Cathy's knowledge of the market and area is impressive and she is extremely diligent. Very happy about the experience and when I come back to Edmonton I will go through her again.
