What clients are saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Congratulations North Carolina! You now have Bambi Famous Kaine. She is one of the brightest, diligent, ethical, organized and hysterically witty people that I know. She will be as awesome in the real estate world because she takes every job to heart and will exceed your expectations. I and her vast amount of friends miss her in Florida.
If you are in need of a truly wonderful Realtor, please consider Ray Trine. Ray has helped guide us through several real estate transactions and has been truly outstanding. Not only has he provided great service, but he has made every experience fun. He has assisted us in both buying and selling real estate and has always gone far above and beyond for us. We have bought and sold more than 10 houses over the years, so have worked with several Realtors. Ray has been our favorite. We have worked with Realtors who have delegated tasks but we can always count on Ray. No matter the cost of the property, Ray always gives the same strong effort. Recently, Ray was able to identify a property which fits our needs perfectly. We were fortunate that he was in charge of the search. Finally, I would say that not only has Ray been an excellent Realtor but we consider him to be a friend as well.
The best type of glowing review is a "repeat customer" testimonial. Our first experience with Chuck Self was when he seamlessly sold our home in Cashiers several years ago. My dream of purchasing another mountain home in Cashiers came to fruition with his assistance ... His response to phone calls, texts and emails is the quickest you will find! He is ultra congenial and so easy to work with. Chuck accommodates his client, even if it means sacrificing his own time and expense, as his number one goal is customer satisfaction. He truly wants his client happy and will do whatever it takes to make this happen, even if it means his client chooses to view / purchase property that is not his own listing...he aims to please in every way! I say without a doubt that first consulting with Chuck Self will make all of your buying or selling needs seem effortless! He's the best in the business!
Cassie was professional and responsive, a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond more than a few times. She was also very good about not encouraging us to jump the gun in terms of letting the process work itself out and not try to push it.
I have had the distinct privilege of knowing Bambi Famous Kaine for over 10 years. I am a builder of finely crafted custom homes with the finest finishes, details, and must-haves for our discerning clients, and Bambi is one of my go-to advisers on the trends and fashions in new custom homes. She has exceptional taste and a deep knowledge of the market both for what her clients demand in their home and for helping connect the dots between her clients' goals and what is available on the market. We also have collaborated on a custom home together, and she is one of those rare individuals who are willing to put in the time and effort to make everything perfect, providing her clients and friends with timely advice when it comes to all things real estate.
You will be well-served if you are fortunate enough to enlist Bambi to help you prepare and sell your home or to find the home of your dreams.
I have worked with Bambi Famous Kaine for over 20 years in numerous real estate transactions and highly recommend her as a real estate broker for your purchasing and selling needs. She is extremely intelligent, very knowledgeable in the intricacies of real estate, organized and detail-oriented, and an incredible problem-solver. Add to that a positive, can-do attitude and her ability to connect on a personal basis to understand your specific needs and goals. She is the perfect broker to assist with your transaction from A to Z and make the entire process smooth and easy.

My wife and I have moved many times in the last 30 years and dealt with a lot of agents. We have now dealt with Ray on many transactions and believe strongly that he is by far the best. His integrity, professionalism, and knowledge of the mountain market are unparalleled. We are glad we found him and more so appreciate his warm smile and good nature. He is the very best. If you are looking for a superior real estate agent in the mountains... he’s your guy.
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! Things have changed!! The characteristics we most appreciated were: responsiveness, honesty, upfront with pros and cons , not pussyfooting around, good negotiation skills. In addition, Dan was able to intuit after showing a few houses just what our ‘style’ was, again, not wasting time. If you are planning on buying or selling a house in the NC mountains you could NOT find a better agent to help you. And in addition, just closing is not the end of the relationship. He has been crucial in introducing us to servicemen, housekeeping, landscapers.....all the people one needs to know when moving to a completely new area. I sincerely recommend Dan Allen for your real estate needs.

My husband and I have been property owners in Cashiers for 25 years and decided to purchase another larger property. We met Chuck and immediately liked him. He has a real command of the market area and is very conscientious and always responsive, immediately answering phone calls and texts. It was a pleasure working with him. I highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs in the area.

AMAZING SERVICE! What a wonderful experience we had working with Jochen Lucke. He is a very knowledgeable real estate PRO! He knows the area very well and offered solid advise on the properties. He was patient and thorough in his approach to each property. I was beyond impressed at his level of professionalism and expertise on buying in this area. I took his advise on a number of things and he made home buying EASY! The purchase process was one of the most smooth and non-stressful experiences in my life. They have a lifelong customer now. I would never think of letting anyone else help with my real estate needs again. If you are moving to the Highlands/Cashiers/Sapphire Area, I would highly recommend Silver Creek Real Estate Group.
