Teri Stein is a 3rd generation Idahoan and arguably, is the quintessential “ambassador” for Idaho and the Treasure Valley. Born and raised in Boise, Teri has fostered trust-based relationships with everyone she comes into contact with – she is well known, highly respected, and has contributed in many meaningful ways to help our community realize its full potential. A blend of best Idaho values with a distinctly cosmopolitan flair, Teri is a beautiful person both inside and out, and a most welcome addition to the Ralston Team! Teri no longer practices real estate, but instead puts all of her energy into her family and our community. Teri ensures Ralston Group stays abreast of community events and developments, and serves as our liaison with many organizations. Teri is not a licensed realtor.
After graduating from Borah High School, she initially sought a liberal arts education at Oregon State. However, Teri followed her instincts and was drawn to the world of high fashion, moving to San Diego to study fashion design and later at the Paris Fashion Institute, eventually living abroad in Germany. After returning to Boise, she worked with a local sportswear company leveraging her sales and marketing experience, eventually selling a line of women’s high fashion clothing called W by WORTH that she is still involved with today.
In 1996, Teri diversified her professional interests and secured her Idaho real estate license. She joined McLeod Realty, which after being acquired became a part of Windermere Capital Group, and was affiliated with Market Pro until joining Ralston Group Properties as its community liaison in 2015.
Teri and her husband, Ed Miller, are visionary community leaders. Ed is the co-managing partner of the Givens Pursley law firm, and has extensive experience in land use and real estate development matters. Married for over 21 years, they’ve both been instrumental in actively and generously supporting key community initiatives that have made Boise such a great place to live. While raising three wonderful, now grown kids, Teri devoted herself to volunteering at the Boise School District. This passion for volunteerism evolved to include serving on the Boise Contemporary Theatre Board and the Resource Council for the Trey McIntyre Project in the past.
Perhaps the most illustrative recognition of Teri being one of Boise’s “brightest lights” is her being honored as the 2014 recipient of the Joyce Stein Memorial Award. Named after her mother for her extraordinary contributions to the YWCA Women’s Center as a founding member and first Director of the Women’s Crisis Center, this prestigious award has been given out every year since 1980. Given Teri’s friendship with the Women’s and Children’s Alliance, she was recognized with this award in 2014 – a fitting tribute to her mother as an early pioneer of protecting women from domestic violence, Teri has continued the Stein/Miller family legacy of compassionate giving to our community.
