Hello there! My name is Vickie and I am the author behind LiveWorkOC. I am also a Real Estate Professional and a Certified Negotiation Expert in Orange County. The purpose of my blog is to inspire and encourage people to live and work in Orange County by exploring local real estate trends and educating buyers and sellers on the real estate market.
I started my professional career as an actuarial consultant before transferring my passion for advising companies to helping individuals. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a dual degree in Economics and Statistics, and bring a well-rounded skill set to serve as your real estate advocate. I am professionally trained in business transactions, market analytics, and project management, and have worked in high stress environments in San Francisco, New York, and Orange County. I currently reside in Irvine, California with my husband, Joseph, and dog, Em.
When I am not blogging or working with clients, I love to travel, bake, and host themed parties. Whether it's planning a new destination, mixing ingredients, or curating a menu, I execute everything I do with precision, love, and care. I am extremely organized and work hard to deliver the best results. I take pride in staying current with market trends, internalizing my clients’ needs, effectively marketing homes for sale, and successfully negotiating closes.
Thank you so much for reading, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you are thinking about buying, selling or leasing a home. I am always happy to help!
