Crestwood Communities Celebrates 40 Years!
1978 – 2018
FAMILY TRADITIONS BECOME OUR LEGACY
The Kent family began its strong, time-tested tradition of homebuilding excellence over 70 years ago! Gregg Kent, a Chicago builder and developer, came to
Los Angeles in the 1940s to become a building inspector for the City of Los Angeles. In 1947, he and his wife, Peggy, formed the Gregg P. Kent Corporation,
which made its name building homes in the San Gabriel Valley and surrounding areas.
And the next generation stood on the shoulders of their parents to continue the legacy.
Brother and sister, Mike Kent and Kitty Kent Garvey, along with their spouses, Diane and Mike, founded
CrestWood Communities in 1978. CrestWood Communities built its future on the unshakeable family tradition of building excellence. Continuing in their father’s footsteps, they began with an abiding pride in building outstanding, affordable homes for families living in the Inland Empire. Integrity, trust and an unwavering sense of family has brought them immeasurable success in the past 40 years.
The third generation of Kents and Garveys excitedly joined the CrestWood Communities
founders beginning in 1985.
Terry Kent, and Daniel and Patrick Garvey were immersed in the family traditions early in life. Having grown up in the family business, they brought a sense of history as well as an appreciation for new ideas to help shape the future of CrestWood Communities. These energetic cousins live the family values upon which this legacy is built. They learned the importance of putting family first and they extend that to all those who live in CrestWood Communities homes. They have been instrumental in building quality single-family homes that blend innovative design, stylish architecture and preferred amenities to enhance each carefully selected community setting.
And now, the fourth generation is joining the family journey of tradition and sincerity to ensure
the legacy that began seven decades ago will be a lasting one.
