Tom Tokoph has lived in Arizona since 1975. A graduate of Westmont, a Christian Liberal Arts and Sciences College in Santa Barbara, California, he holds a degree in Economics and Business.  In affiliation with the International Business Institute, Tom completed several courses of study in International business while traveling throughout Western Europe and Russia including a semester of study in Jerusalem, Israel.

Upon completion of several financial internships in downtown San Francisco, Tom moved back to his hometown Arizona to pursue a career in real estate. Tom is now the Designated Broker and owner of Urban Realty & Development, a company specializing in the urban lifestyle surrounding Tempe Town Lake and downtown Tempe.  Although still in it's infancy, metropolitan Arizona has experienced tremendous growth in city living alternatives within the past few years.  Tom has been involved with the new urban revival since the very beginning.

The city living lifestyle is not only Tom's business, but also the way he dwells.  The Urban Realty & Development Live/Work loft is located in the heart of downtown Tempe at the Brickyard on Mill within the Lofts at Orchidhouse.  The loft reflects the nature of the business, but also Tom's devotion to the live, work and play urban lifestyle. Passionate about urban living, modern architecture, modern furniture and design, you may find Tom admiring significant design wherever he travels.  Some of Tom’s other activities include amateur photography, golf, weight training, travel, as well as enjoying the city landscape while cruising on his "Vespa".  He and his wife of 19 years enjoy live theatre and are season ticket holders to Arizona Theatre and the Phoenix Theatre. In his spare time, Tom has served as the President of several homeowners associations and committees and both Tom and Alicia are active members of Redemption Church.

With over 18 years of real estate experience focused on downtown living in the Valley, Tom is ready to share with you his passionate belief that life is in the heart of the city!
