Tom served as a member of the Board of Directors and later chaired the Administration Department of the largest brokerage firm in the valley. In 2003 Sotheby’s International Realty purchased the Assets and Business of Jackson Hole Realty and Tom is an associate broker working out of a branch office in Teton Pines.

Tom and his wife, Andrea have two children, Ashley and Alicia. Ashley most recently graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where she obtained a degree in International Business and Spanish. She has moved to Valdosta, Georgia where she is working and living with her fiancé. Mike Diprisco. Mike just graduated from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado where he is now in flight training school with the military.

The Evans clan spends a great deal of time in Grand Teton National Park camping, fishing and rejuvenating their love for the valley. Tom occasionally will guide big game hunters into Teton Wilderness on hunting and fishing trips for Elk, Deer, Moose and Big Horn Sheep. “Fishing and or Pack Trips into the back country remind me of why I live here. I call it my paid vacation. No telephones and away from the office where Grizzly Bears are abundant and the occasional Wolf pack or Mountain Lion will get your heart rate up. I love to fish and I spend a lot of time in the summer on Jackson, Yellowstone and Fremont Lakes.”
