What clients are saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
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.
My husband, Brian, and I totally enjoyed working with Chuck as we search for a home in the Glenville, Cashiers and Highlands, North Carolina areas. Chuck was not only extremely personable and enjoyable to be around, but he was also very knowledgeable about the area and went above and beyond as we searched. He was always quick to respond to any questions we had and was very efficient and thorough in his job. We ended up purchasing a home in Cashiers and Chuck was even nice enough to recommend a builder to help us with some slight remodeling we want to do. We're looking forward to enjoying our new home in such a beautiful area of North Carolina.

Chuck was very helpful in selling our Trillium home promptly in the summer of 2018. We asked him to price it for a prompt sale and he did. We closed the sale within 90 days of the listing. He also represented the buyer and he did a really good job in handling the negotiations and details of closing which was helpful since we were not in North Carolina during the listing and closing periods.. Also, his company does a really good job of marketing including professional photos for the marketing materials. There is an abundance of real estate for sale in the Cashiers area and you really need an exceptional agent like Chuck to avoid wasting everybody's time.

Having been in the real estate business for some 25 years and in a position to represent myself in the sale of my home, I instead choose Silver Creek and Jochen Lucke to handle the marketing, sale and transaction servicing on sale of our home in Cashiers. Experience had told me that only a firm truly committed to the total process, each piece, would be the correct partner for sale of our higher priced home in a market still recovering from the recession. This choice was the correct one. Jochen and the Silver Creek team's marketing package is by far the "best in class" on the plateau and his attention to detail on all other aspects of the process are not left wanting. His experience in the market place, knowledge of service providers and people you need to know to get things done have proven to be very valuable. No doubt, we made the correct choice with Jochen and Silver Creek.
Jochen was a pleasure to work with when selling our lot on Lake Glenville. He was always a step ahead of us and very informative. His years of experience and knowledge of the market made all the difference.

Jochen got more than he bargained for when he took us on as clients!! When our house sold, he took us all over Cashiers looking for a new house. He took us to see a house we weren't really interested in...and we fell in love with it! He knew we'd love it! Then during our move, he answered all our questions and went well above and beyond what a realtor should do! I'm sure he missed our daily..and sometimes hourly...calls and texts! He also sold our lot!! Thank you Jochen!
