Meet Tom & Kathy Phillips

Tom and Kathy both grew up in the greater Sacramento area, attending El Camino and Rio Americano high schools respectively. Tom stayed local after graduation and attended Sac State, while Kathy matriculated on the central coast at Cal Poly.

After they married, Tom and Kathy settled down in the Arden-Arcade area, eventually moving to Arden Park where they currently live with their children, Tommy, Jonathan and Caroline, and their coterie of dogs small and large that add to the joyful chaos.

They and their family are very active members of the community, including local charitable organizations, schools and clubs. Favorite activities include attending their children’s various sports (soccer, basketball, rowing and water polo!), golf, hiking and relaxing with friends.

They were raised here, graduated her, and bought here. They not only know Sacramento, they love it.
