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.


I had previously tried to sell my condo with two other realtors for over a year. They had the condo priced wrong and didn’t provide details as to why we were priced the way we were. Cathy did an excellent job in showing us our competition beyond just our building and explaining why we should price it as we did. We went from no offers for over a year, to an offer on our very first showing within a week of listing! I had high hopes when we signed with Cathy, but she shattered my expectations!

We have worked with Cathy now on 3 transactions, and we look forward to the next. Cathy has been a huge asset in our real estate history, we greatly appreciate her outside-the-box thinking, advice, and attention to detail. Cathy's negotiating skills are aggressive but strategic, and most importantly, effective. Cathy obviously possesses all necessary levels of professionalism, polite, friendly, quick response time, knowledgeable, and exceeds all expectations when it comes down to the technical side of things. It's important to work with an agent that is trustworthy, knowledgeable, provides above-and-beyond customer service, and willing to put in hard work and long hours and for all of those reason I highly recommend Cathy to everyone.

Cathy Nguyen did a phenomenal job with both the sale of our property and the purchase of our new acreage. She was always quick to reply, very helpful with any questions we had and made the whole process smooth for us. She really made it her mission to find us the perfect acreage property (which proved a challenge with the currently red hot market). We would hire her time and time again for any selling or buying in the future. Thanks again Kathy for letting us drag you all over the countryside to find the perfect forever home!
