An ex Apple employee turned full time real estate investor. Vivian and her husband are the Austin House Flippers (Youtube, Instagram) on social media. She has been a real estate investor and house hacker since 2004 and took real estate investing seriously beginning in 2018 when both she and her husband had full-time jobs.

They flipped our first 6 houses with full time jobs in the first year!

Her husband was able to quit his corporate job in 2019 and she left her job at Apple (after nearly 7 years) in April 2021. They have two kids, (10 and 11) and two fur babies. They hold 9 doors (a mix of long term and short term and mid term rentals). They also currently house hack! As a family, they have flipped / renovated 23 homes and are currently working on our 24th and 25th property.

Vivian's favorite restaurant in Austin is Tsuke Edomae and her favorite book is cliché but it’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad because it shaped the way she thinks about my time and money.

Vivian is not from any particular place as she has spend the same amount of time in Vancouver, Toronto, Chicago, Austin, and some time in Calgary. Aside from flipping, she also has other companies that she runs: Hospitality (STR management), Property Holding, and Cash Offer company.
