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.

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.
I am pleased to recommend Dan Allen to anyone looking to sell or buy real estate in North Carolina. He recently closed the sale of my house in Cashiers. I was pleased with Dan's advice throughout the negotiation process and felt we were able to get a fair price when the sale was complete.
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.
Dan Allen is a fantastic agent.He helped us with all aspects in this sale.He was very professional at all times and gve us many selling tips that helped us. Dan was especially very helpful when we received the offers to buy. He explained and handeled all of the paperwork promptly. I definetly recommend using Dan Allen as an agent and we would use him again.
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 was very professional and always responsive even when he was very busy. I would HIGHLY recommend him. Dan was very knowledgeable on a wide variety of subjects regarding many aspects of all of the homes he showed to us. He was able to understand exactly what our search criteria involved and was always a few steps ahead.
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 [...]
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.
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!!!
Very rarely can you find an honest real estate agent who "gets it." Dan knows the market, knows you and knows houses. He can help you find that diamond others ignored because they missed key details he understands. He has helped us on two properties so far. In the first one, he knew critical information that made the deal possible. If you want to buy land, he has expertise in good building site identification. We bought a house and a plot of land, and he is great at knowing if a [...]
