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.

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?

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

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.

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

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


Cathy was exceptionally helpful and understanding of our needs. She constantly went above and beyond what we expected from a realtor and for that reason we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who wants to buy a house. We were flip-flopping on whether to go see a house that was right at our upper spending limit. She thought it wouldn't hurt to go see it, so we did, and it ended up having no deficiencies and was perfect for us. We now live happily in our new home and that is thanks to Cathy!

Cathy Nguyen was a pleasant and personable real estate agent to work with. She was very helpful and patient with the various questions that I had about the condo property that I purchased - that she helped me purchase! I couldn't have done it without her. She guided me through every step in the process and always listened to my questions/concerns and found answers promptly, so I could make informed decisions related to my purchase. I definitely recommend working Cathy to purchase your new home.

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.

My husband and I really loved to work with Liv Real Estate, specially with Beverley Hasinoff. She was so candid, looking out for what we wanted, diligent and so helpful in helping us understand all the process as first homeowners. They really follow through and make sure everything is in place. I absolutely recommend them. This is a really professional team.
