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.

I have known Dan Allen since approximately 1996. Since this time, I have seen Mr. Allen grow from a customer of mine into a very professional real estate broker that I can feel confident in any referral I send him. Mr. Allen has my respect and support and I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell real estate.
We were a retired couple looking to move to the NC Cashiers area, desiring a lakefront property. We serendipitously met Dan thru Silver Creek website when exploring houses. When inquiring about properties Dan responded immediately with information that helped us narrow our search and not waste time as we were in Atlanta. On our third time up to the area we found the perfect house on the lake and Dan was instrumental in helping us navigate the process as we had not bought or sold in 30 years! [...]
Dan is a true professional. He was great about keeping us posted on showings and feedback from those showings, and helped when we needed to have things done at the home by recommending a good handyman (it is a vacation home so we were not there much of the time.) When we received an offer, he was very professional and helped greatly with the negotiation process from beginning to end and all the way through the closing. I would highly recommend Dan Allen and would certainly work with again in [...]
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 [...]
Dan was extremely helpful walking us through our purchase in Cashiers. He knew exactly what we were looking for and was very effective in negotiating in our behalf. We highly recommend him.
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.
Knowledgeable, low key, listened, made the process seamless! Provided guidance in areas not directly related to the sale. Recommend Dan with no hesitation. Everyone should be so fortunate to have someone of this calibre working with them.
We have been working with Dan since November 2012. He takes the time to understand what you are looking for and goes the extra mile to find the right property for you. Dan puts 100% into each real estate deal. We have purchased two properties through Dan over the past two months and are very happy with his service. He is a great.
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 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!
