As a young boy growing up in Cary, North Carolina, Dan Allen fell in love with the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau over the course of many summertime visits. In 1994, he was able to realize his lifelong dream when he moved here and set down roots at a mountaintop farm near Cashiers. Dan quickly began building a solid reputation as a skilled real estate professional. His success is largely based on his innate understanding of what draws families to the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau, just as he was drawn here many years before.
A major advocate for animals and the environment, Dan is deeply involved in his community, serving on the board of the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society and supporting the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and the Nature Conservancy. Always seeking new ways to better himself in the industry he loves, Dan is also an active member of the Highlands-Cashiers Board of Realtors, North Carolina Board of Realtors, and National Association of Realtors. He is SFR-certified and has become well-versed in the intricacies of short sales, foreclosures, and REOs. Dan brings a fresh approach and genuine enthusiasm about our area to each new client he serves. His positive attitude, local knowledge, and proven dedication make him a terrific listing and buying partner.
When Dan is not helping other families realize their dreams of living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, he spends much of his time off with his own family and friends. He can easily be found enjoying a relaxing day at the lake or volunteering. Dan is a respected member of the Plateau community and a welcome member of the Silver Creek Real Estate Group team.

My husband and I are very impressed with the service we received from Dan Allen. I would recommend him to anyone. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and goes above and beyond. We live in Florida, and he helped us with purchasing property in Cullowhee, NC. Since we were not in town, he did quite a bit of legwork for us. He kept us informed and was always accessible. He is truly a pleasure to work with.
I would give Dan 10 stars if I could! He could not have been more helpful and pleasant, and his service and willingness to help continues. He TRULY went above and beyond what I would have expected from a realtor. He's incredibly knowledgable and dedicated to his work and doing the very best job possible for his client. I will not hesitate to use him again.
Dan did a great job helping my wife and me purchase our first home. He is extremely knowledgeable of the area and worked hard to get the deal done. In the future whether buying or selling a home Dan will be the agent we use.
Simply put, Dan Allen is a professional. If you are looking to buy or sell, you owe it to yourself to speak with Dan before you commit to anyone. Dan 'knows' real estate and he knows it well. This is not a second job for Dan, and it shows in his work and his ethics. Besides that, he's a nice guy too. Although our purchase was small and the financial reward for Dan would be on the same level, he performed his duties as if we were spending a million bucks. We purchased a 1930s [...]
We used Dan to purchase a lot in North Carolina while we were in Florida. We had never seen the lot and relied on Dan's experience and expertise to make the decision to purchase. Dan handled all of the details for us and made the transaction very easy. We were extremely pleased with the entire experience!
Dan has done an excellent job helping us purchase a home in Cashiers. We would highly recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing a home. He is very thorough and helpful in the negotiation process.
I own and manage several commercial and residential properties in different states. And by far Dan is the most experienced real estate professional I’ve dealt with up to this point in time. His knowledge of the market in the areas around Highlands and Cashiers, Jackson, Macona, and Transylvania counties, along with the zoning expertise, was an invaluable asset.
Dan was very good to work with he always returned calls and took care of any problems I will list more properties with him. Dan also didn't hesitate to help out with contacts for work that needed to be done at the home.
Dan has been my RE agent for acquiring several properties in the Cashiers NC area. He is extremely knowledgeable about inventory, pricing and finding very good value. More important for me, he is very honest when it comes to buying and selling real estate. If its not a good deal he will tell you like it is. And he will be available before, during and after the sale has happened. A very highly recommend Dan!
Dan provided great insight in helping us properly price our home for sale. He kept us informed on every showing of the house and gave us the feedback from every showing. He helped us through the negotiation and the closing of the house. We thought the experience could not have gone better.
