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.

Our experience with Dan as our Realtor couldn't have been better. Dan is an extremely personable and caring Realtor who is devoted to his work and committed to his clients. He is a Realtor who goes beyond the call of duty. We really appreciated the way Dan kept us updated by calling frequently and letting us know how everything was progressing with the sale of our house. We couldn't have chosen a better Realtor than Dan and would highly recommend him.
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!
The thing I found most impressive about Dan Allen was his honesty. I truly believe he would rather lose a sale than sell property to a client that he felt was not in his client's best interest. I would recommend him to anyone and would use him again without question, should the need arise in the future.
We have bought property all over the country. By far Dan Allen has been the most honest, friendly and helpful Agent we've ever worked with. Did I mention how patience he was? We did investigate other Agents available and chose Dan as the one for us. It was a wise decision on our part.
I met Dan several years ago; he was recommended to me by friends in the area. At the time, I was interested in purchasing a home/land in the Cashiers area. Dan is extremely personable, sincere, and hard-working. He went above and beyond what one would expect. It is these qualities that make him a success in his endeavors. I have and will continue to recommend Dan without reservation.

Dan Allen is the most outstanding realtor we have ever worked with! He located the PERFECT home for us and was a fantastic negotiator. Dan ensured that ALL details were handled and kept in constant contact with us throughout the process, which was especially important since we were moving from out of state. We cannot recommend him highly enough and encourage you to work with Dan to find your dream home in the beautiful North Carolina mountains!
My wife and I have been looking for a property in NC for many years unsuccesfully. I decided to give Dan Allen a call and he was able to find us just what we were looking for. Dans knowledge of the area is remarkable and he got the deal done for us in one day compared to other agents that didnt seem to want to be bothered by the smaller purchase that we needed for our budget. Dan spent as much time with us he would have with someone buying a million dollar home...Thx again Dan!!!
Dan went above and beyond to help us find the right piece of property for us! His local knowledge, integrity, committment and willingness to help us even with things not directly tied to the purchase was outstanding. We would highly recommend Dan and will definitely work with him again when buying other property in the area.
Dan did a great job in helping to find our perfect Lake Glenville home. We took over 2 years of looking and he was very patient and accommodating, always working around our schedule. He also helped us negotiate, what we considered to be a very fair price. I would highly recommend him to all our friends and would utilize his expertise when and if we decide to purchase another home in the area.
Still, in a very tough market and just completing a difficult land sell, I give Dan '5-Stars' in all areas. Before you retain an agent, please at least talk with Dan. Here are several of his impressive qualities: *He likes to walk the land (with you) and understand its value *He has a creative approach. Dan can up with the strategy which ultimately produced our buyer. *He is willing to work and to execute strategy- not just give advice *He [...]
