Ruby Miles Stroschein

Ruby is founder and CEO of AppraiserMetrics LLC, the parent company of LandValue Solutions, formerly KeyLock Solutions. An agricultural appraiser since 1986, Ruby is also founder and past owner of Gem Valley Appraisal, established over 30 years ago.

Ruby is a certified general appraiser in Idaho and Washington with a Master’s Degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Idaho, and a MAI designation from Appraisal Institute. She taught Farm and Natural Resource Appraisal at UI, served twelve years on the Idaho State Real Estate Appraisal Licensing Board, and has affiliations with American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers.

Ruby’s background is steeped in agriculture. She grew up on a dry farm in Juniper, Idaho with eight brothers (founders of Campbell Scientific, Juniper Systems, HarvestMaster, and Decagon Technologies) and two sisters. Ruby married an Idaho sheepman and farmer, is the proud mother of five, the grandmother of seven, and great-grandmother of four. Ruby and Tom divide their time between their home in Moscow and the mountains of Elk River, Idaho. From their cabin porch, they welcome all to come enjoy the great scenery and huckleberry ice cream at the general store.



Sarah has been an independent fee appraiser with Gem Valley Appraisal since 2002, after graduating with honors from Idaho State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Finance and minor in Economics. She now owns the company. Unofficially, she has been part of the appraisal industry from the day she was old enough to hold the end of a tape measure for her mother, Ruby. In 2015, Sarah received her MAI designation from Appraisal Institute.

Sarah’s fascination with economic modeling applications in real estate formed her conviction that good data matters. Experienced in appraising agricultural, commercial, residential, and special-use properties, Sarah’s area of expertise is in the application of regression modeling in the valuation of real estate, instructing, and presenting multiple regression analysis to several industry groups.

Outside of the office, Sarah is a dedicated mother to her young son Tommy, tries her best to keep up with her ever-adventurer husband Kyle, and enjoys the companionship of her two grown step-daughters.
