Resume

Tom is the founder of Stevens & Co. After graduating from the University of Montana with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business, he began his appraisal career in the banking industry of Oklahoma in 1971. He moved back to Missoula in 1978 to further pursue his appraisal career.  Stevens & Co. is an outgrowth of a partnership with C. Robert White, MAI, in 1978, after White-Stevens, Ltd. was dissolved, and Mr. White’s interest was purchased. 

Tom currently holds two designations from the Appraisal Institute; MAI (Member of Appraisal Institute) and SRA (Senior Residential Appraiser). He has been appointed by two Governors to the State of Montana’s Board of Real Estate Appraisers and served as Chairman all nine years.  He also is certified to perform Conservation Easement appraisal reports.

Tom has been a member of the Missoula International Airport Board of Directors, serving a tenure of 10 years, and elected Chairman twice. Tom also serves as the President of the Montana Eye Endowment Foundation, which promotes eyesight wellness and funds research for vision-related diseases.

Tom has numerous hobbies outside of Stevens & Co. but is very involved with his numerous collector automobiles and is a licensed private pilot, airplane owner, and certified scuba diver. He enjoys spending time with his wife, Julie, and his entire family, but most importantly, his two grandchildren.

I've enjoyed working for Stevens & Co. for over 15 years.
