About Us

Black Sands Realty Group started off organically around 20 years ago, Eric Yule had been doing property management for some time and organically transitioned from property management to selling homes. “At that time, there were a lot of older families in the area who were weary of foreigners selling on their behalf, but after a few successful deals, word got out and other families followed suit.” Eric Yule

Our company has since grown into a boutique agency with a humble two agent crew, comprised of Eric Yule and Andrea Mendez. Both dedicated professionals, working in collaboration with the best, most honest legal team, we pride ourselves on a personalized customer service experience, matching our clients to their dream home with honesty and integrity.
