Our Story

Vivia Group was formed by three women with the unified goal of starting their own real estate investment company. Morgan Royse, Natalie Toprowsky and Tessa Sandstrom worked together for several years before branching out on their own in 2015. Together they bring a strong background of 30 years’ combined experience in finance and real estate, focusing on the acquisition of value add multifamily and commercial real estate, and single-family redevelopment. Creating lucrative opportunities since 2015; Vivia Group has successfully acquired more than $60 million in off-market real estate including assembling the five parcels for the Nesttun Ballard project. Natalie, Tessa, and Morgan are excited to be part of a women-owned and -operated company that allows them to diversify and start new projects, all while aligning the interest of all parties involved.
