I am lucky to call Mike and Joy, founders of Town and Mountain Realty, my parents. Like my dad, I was born and raised here in Asheville. I attended Asheville City Schools and got a wonderful education through our local school system. When I graduated from Asheville High, I moved to Charleston to attend College of Charleston in South Carolina. My junior year, I got to spend a semester abroad in Brisbane, Australia, where I attended The University of Queensland. I graduated from CofC with a degree in business and concentration in Marketing.
All through college, I worked at Copper Penny, a high-end clothing boutique in downtown Charleston, where I became passionate about designer clothing and shoes. When I graduated from college, with my education in business, background in sales, and a keen eye for style and design, I was hired as a design consultant for a family business, Palmetto Tile Distributors, in Charleston. I was very fortunate to help build the new showroom from scratch, and I developed a wonderful clientele working with some of the best interior designers and builders in Charleston, helping to create the homes of our client's dreams through kitchen and bath design.
I moved back home to Asheville at the beginning of 2015 to be close to family, and to join our family business, and The Mike Miller Team. I'm now able to play on the same volleyball team as my dad and sister, practice yoga with my mom on a regular basis, and we all like to get out for a good live music show and local beer when given the opportunity. What a blessing to be able to call this beautiful city home again.
I grew up around the real estate business. And my background in sales, design, and customer service are a natural lead into real estate sales. My first year of real estate was a successful one, I was extremely fortunate to be busy right out of the gate. And exactly after a year of selling real estate, I bought a 1950's bungalow in West Asheville and performed a major renovation. We joke that it was another way to pay for an education, and I absolutely loved it! It has helped me be even more knowledgeable about owning a home and help educate my clients, especially first time home buyers, on what it's like to buy and renovate a fixer upper! I have since purchased and renovated an investment property with my now husband, Aaron Byard, owner of Table Rock Builders, and we've done a second renovation on our personal home when we were expecting our baby girl, Nomi. I love the creative outlet and problem solving that comes with bringing life back to these old homes. If you're interested in this type of project, let's bounce some ideas off each other!
I am so grateful for all of my clients. If they don't start out as lifetime friends, the goal is that at the end of the transaction, they end up that way. I'm proud to say that has been the case for all of the transactions I've handled so far. I love that with real estate; I have the opportunity to make new friends, establish new connections, and help others. If you feel we would be a good fit for your real estate needs, please contact me!

"We worked with Leah for two years and wound up buying her personal home . As such, since she was the seller, we used another realtor to represent us. Having worked with us as a professional realtor and then as the seller of the home we purchased we are able to speak about her from a unique position. We can say with confidence that Leah is a beautiful person. Not only that, but also honest, sincere, knowledgeable and the ultimate professional. There were some unique circumstances that [...]
"Through the years we have worked with several realtors in different states while making a number of moves, but it is difficult to discover any better than Leah and her dad, Mike Miller. As we began looking at the Asheville housing market from out of state a couple of years ago, we were rather particular—some might call it picky — in trying to select our next home. In our lengthy search Leah and Mike never lost patience with us, nor did they ever try to rush us into trying to make a selection. [...]
"Leah was very responsive and helpful with the sale of our home. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and will choose her again in the future." ~ Sharon D.
"Leah Miller is a joy to work with! She worked extremely hard to finalize my dreams of owning my first home. She has a great way of listening to her clients' needs and goes above and beyond to make it happen. She is bright, knowledgeable, and resourceful. She loves what she does and it is apparent in every interaction. As a new home buyer, I felt completely comfortable and trusted her judgment implicitly. After getting to know her throughout this process, I would also call her a friend. I [...]
"It was a pleasure to work with Leah and the Miller team! Leah is a very reliable and thoughtful person who put in a lot of efforts in guiding me through the process of finding the perfect home for m e. She was always super fast in answering and providing well-grounded information. I can highly recommend her."
"Needless to say, buying a house in the midst of a pandemic is quite stressful on so many levels. Working with Leah turned out to be a blessing as her patience, thoroughness, professionalism, responsiveness and overall knowledge of the local market paired with her great team and the resources that come with that made everything almost seamless. I would work with her again and again and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for their dream home or just an investment." ~ Alin P. [...]
"Leah helped enormously with professional advice on the local market and was able to provide recommendations on contractors for inspections and some repairs that the property requires. She was flexib le on meeting us on short notice to show properties as well as accommodating evening hours and working weekend days on putting together offers. I look forward to working with her again!"
"I just closed on my first house yesterday! Leah and Michael were both phenomenal to work with. They helped guide me through the home buying process. I could not sing their praises any higher. -- Leah is awesome! She held my hand every step of the way and explained the process exceptionally. She also had extraordinary patience with me when I found the house I loved! The best realtor in town!!! -- Michael is amazing! His vibes are immaculate coupled with dry humor that can make anyone laugh. [...]
"My husband Pat and I just purchased a home. We had the excellent guidance of Leah Miller. She showed us more than 40 homes over multiple days. When we did decide on a home there were many extra concerns as it was being sold "AS IS" and was previously a rental. She met many contractors and inspectors during the due diligence period. I hope not to have to buy again any time soon but if we do we will definitely use Leah Miller again." ~ Martha S. [...]
"Our agent, Leah Miller, learned under the tutelage of the best in the business, her dad Mike Miller. From our initial contact, when we had just decided to sell our home and downsize, through every step of the process, we have had complete confidence in Leah and Mike and the staff at Town and Mountain. They made sure we understood each choice we made, helped us determine the pricing of our home, gave hands-on help in staging the property, and -- most importantly -- maintained close [...]
