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.

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 had a very positive real estate experience than while working with Dan Allen. He is thorough, patient (extremely patient!!), bright, knowledgeable about the area, and it doesn't hurt that he has a dry sense of humor that diffuses the most frustrating aspects of a real estate search. We have never worked with a realtor who has been more helpful before, during, and after the completion of a real estate transaction.
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's knowledge and helpfulness exceeded all expectations. I bought undeveloped acreage in NC mountains. Dan had walked the property and was well acquainted with potential building sites. Dan obtained a septic permit from the county; arranged to have property surveyed; put me in touch with local attorney to help with the closing; provided contacts to run electric power to build site; provided name of forester for tree removal. No detail was neglected. Dan responded to all phone calls, [...]

Let me begin that saying that having been a Marine for ten years my standards for sacrifice, professionalism, and commitment are unfairly high. Dan Allen not only met, but surpassed each and every expectation set before him. He has fought for us, stood next to us, in times of need guided us with steadfast commitment, and represented us with great professionalism. Though we are not among his wealthiest clients, he has made us feel as though we were.His communication has been conducted with [...]
Dan helped us buy a lot first in the mountains in Holly Forest, and then he helped us find a beautiful log home for a great price! Dan was a great real estate agent in every way, and he remains our agent now as we have the lot up for sale. Great experience!
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 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 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.
