As the largest and most successful real estate brokerage in the valley, Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty has an in-depth understanding of the local real estate market and enduring ties throughout the Jackson Hole region.
We are proud of our brokerage’s long and prosperous history in Jackson Hole, spanning more than 80 years from our founding in 1935 by broker Mike Yokel as Jackson Hole Realty—the first established real estate brokerage in the valley.
In 1963 the brokerage became a subsidiary of the Jackson Hole Ski Corporation with Paul McCollister as broker, two agents, and a single office located at the base of the iconic Clock Tower—directly entwining our own history with that of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
The late 70’s and early 80’s ushered in the brokerage’s move into town, and a merger with Hoke Tice Realty in 1983, commencing a new chapter in the valley’s real estate history. Between 1983 and 2002 Jackson Hole Realty grew with the market—from twenty-two to eighty-four agents, sixteen additional partners and satellite offices across the valley and over Teton Pass in Driggs, Idaho.
Jackson Hole Realty was purchased by Sotheby’s International Realty in 2005 and began operating as Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty. As a part of the Sotheby’s International Realty global affiliate network, our brokerage is able to provide access to buyers and sellers of luxury real estate worldwide.
Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty continues to lead the way in Jackson Hole real estate sales in Teton County and proudly sells more real estate by sales volume than any other brokerage in Jackson Hole.* With over fifty years of history and five offices in Teton Village our brokerage sells more real estate in Teton Village than all other brokerages combined.**
Considering calling Jackson Hole home? The benefits of residency in Jackson Hole are numerous, not the least of which being Wyoming’s consistent ranking as the most tax-friendly state in the country. The state’s dismissal of corporate and individual income tax, lack of estate tax and low sales tax secured its top rank in The Tax Foundation’s State Business Tax Climate Index.
Combine the economic and tax benefits of Wyoming residency, the world-famous skiing of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, convenient air service with direct flights from thirteen cities across the country, a vibrant cultural scene, and proximity to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks… isn’t it time you create your own legacy in Jackson Hole?
