Sandstone Equity Group was created for the specific purpose of identifying and purchasing a diverse portfolio of real estate assets.

Our mission at Sandstone Equity Group is to allow investors to have an opportunity to own a piece of the hottest real estate market in the country at or below market value to ensure maximum returns. Although the Managers intend to initially search for properties located in Southern Nevada, the Company will not limit itself geographically.

The Company intends to focus its investment efforts on raw land primarily through Bureau of Land Management land auctions, development of raw land, and commercial properties. Sandstone Equity Group has the knowledge and experience in identifying superior real estate investment opportunities, and specializes in the acquisition and/or development of those opportunities.

At Sandstone, our highly skilled professional team has a keen sense of anticipating growth patterns and locations for maximizing future values, which can result in double and triple digit returns for our investors. Our highly coveted niche is known only to a handful of savvy land investors... which is the Nevada Bureau of Land Management land auctions.

The Bureau of Land Management holds periodic land auctions for auctioning Las Vegas land at wholesale pricing. It is this little known event that will allow our investors to take part in the tremendous gains that can be realized through the know how and expertise of our team. In addition, we have cultivated strategic relationships with National Homebuilders and their land acquisition heads. These relationships will afford Sandstone an exceptionally unique opportunity to enter into mutually beneficial contracts to acquire properties that will be turned at a specified future date and profit.

The Las Vegas real estate market continues to remain extremely strong, with record numbers in closings across the board. The burst of real estate transactions follows a year marked by nationally leading price growth, diminished inventory, and increased affordability concerns — all in a market that can tout its relatively low prices, especially compared to Nevada's neighboring states.

 Despite Las Vegas’ higher real estate values, prices are still well below their pre-recession peaks, and even further below when adjusted for inflation. With the addition of NHL's Golden Knights and NFL's Las Vegas Raiders, the largest Tesla factory in the world, Google giant currently constructing a facility, and Amazon building its second facility, just to name a few, prices will almost certainly continue upwards well into the future. Sandstone Equity Group is directed by a team of dedicated senior real estate professionals whose experience in real estate sales and acquisitions in Las Vegas averages 40 years, and who, collectively, have acquired and sold over half a billion dollars in real estate.

With the expertise of our key advisors and industry connections, we stay abreast of the most recent developments that affect the real estate market and know how to interpret their indications for future purchases and sales, giving us a significant edge over the competition.
