I am delighted to be a recent transplant to Asheville (my husband and I moved here several years ago). Growing up in Brooklyn, NY, I fell in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains as a child, spending summers at Camp Judaea in Hendersonville. After graduating with a degree in Drama/Dance from Bard College, I escaped the East Coast for San Francisco. Appreciating the sense of “the big city inside a small town,” I lived there until moving to Asheville – all except for five years in Jerusalem, Israel. My parents had moved to Israel and it became important for me to spend time with them during the final chapter of their lives. I became a real estate agent there, serving a widely diverse clientele, many of whom were buyers from overseas, seeking retirement or vacation properties.
Making people feel at home is one of the joys in my life. And this is what I bring to serving my clients – helping them find the home that will become their nest, their place of celebration, comfort and safety. Or helping sellers prepare their homes for the market, so they can leave the nest for whatever their goals are.
I am proud to be serving as the Real Estate Consultant on the Steering Team of Housing Options for Aging in Place (HOAP), an Age-friendly Buncombe County Initiative. In just a few years, one in five residents of the County will be age 65 or older. The purpose of HOAP is to create a comprehensive, coordinated initiative that knits together diverse stakeholders across multiple domains to effectively work toward a community where older adults have the ability and choice to age in place. Our goals are for the community to recognize and support safe, accessible, affordable housing as a social determinant of health for older adults; to create new and modified policies and practices (both governmental and organizational) which support and promote affordable and accessible housing options.
Upon arrival in Asheville, I became very active in my synagogue community, Congregation Beth Israel. A regular attendee at services, I am a member of the Ritual Committee, and I often step up to volunteer for events and ad hoc committees. I also serve on the Steering Committee for the Center of Jewish Studies at UNC Asheville. You can find me at one of the Asheville’s many superb restaurants (I happily describe myself as a foodie) or fine theaters (you may even find me on stage now and then), and most definitely at Tourists baseball games. Elie and I love adventuring – continuing to explore the areas in and around Asheville – which broadens and deepens my knowledge of my new home. I can’t wait to help you find yours!
Sara was exception throughout the entire process. I was on a time crunch and needed to be in a house for a custody hearing. With 6 weeks and price point, Sara helped me find multiple homes that would be perfect for my kids and I. Once I found the one Sara went to work scheduling inspections and handling all the details. This is my second home purchase. And Sara made it an amazing experience.

My wife and I recently moved to Asheville, NC and Sara has been instrumental in helping us buy our dream home within a month of arriving. Our good fortune was definitely helped by Sara getting to know us prior to our move through Zoom chats, phone conversations and e-mails. When we arrived, we felt meeting Sara in person was like meeting a long time friend. Sara is very responsive and is top notch in her real estate knowledge. We highly recommend you choose Sara Yakira as your real estate agent. Dan & Laura V.

We found Sara while hunting for a vacation home in the Asheville area. Since we were from outside of the area, Sara did everything she could to accommodate us virtually, and when we occasionally visited. She is super smart and the reason we got the place we wanted in this very hot market. Recommend you speak with her if you wish to secure your next property.

Sara is by far one of the best realtors my husband and I have ever met! From day one, we were immediately impressed with her quick response, wonderful personality, and attention to detail in learning what type of home we were looking for. She was able to help us find an amazing home very quickly. She went above and beyond throughout the entire process to help make closing as easy as possible for myself and my husband, who both work a lot and are often difficult to contact. She worked with our schedules and truly went out of her way to help make this a very positive couple of months- even seeking out additional info we asked about the home and neighborhood, while working to negotiate a great agreement between us and the sellers. We frequently commented on how organized and responsive she was every day, always following up on even the smallest details. I can’t say enough about how wonderful Sara is- I would highly recommend her to anyone, and plan to contact her in the future for any real estate needs!
