RealJoy Properties and RealJoy Vacations are two completely different companies.  We are owned by different people entirely.  We like to stay in our lane, with that said, with we do not have the ability to look up rentals nor do we have the ability to control any decisions being made by RealJoy Vacations.  Please reach out to them directly with any questions you may have.

RealJoy Properties is a boutique full service real estate company located in Destin FL servicing the Emerald Coast since 2006.  Our longevity in part stems from our dedication to education and confidence in this beautiful gulf coast community.  A great number of buyers and sellers, and their recommendations to others have resulted in repeat and referral business that keeps us productive and successful. We work with buyers and sellers including primary residences as well as secondary or investment properties.  Let us show you the Emerald Coast!

Residential Single Family – Our residential single family services connect buyers with sellers every day, and we do it with professionalism and a total dedication to our clients. 

Condominiums – While condominiums are residential, they’re a different market focus, and we have experts in evaluating condos and helping buyers and sellers to cope with the special financing and homeowner concerns for these properties as each condominium complex can have its own set of circumstances.  

Multi–family – Investors are great clients for RealJoy Properties. Multi–family properties are a very unique market. The detailed return on investment and valuation calculations investors need to evaluate properties for rental are second nature to us. Designated Resort Second Home Specialist - we love what we do, we want you to love being here as well.

David Yates


License Number: BK3047323

Testimonial from a client: We recently purchased our first beach home and are so glad that we had the pleasure of working with David. He made our home buying process a breeze, which is saying something when you consider the competitive market we are in. It took no time at all for David to fully understand exactly what we were looking for and stayed true to our price range. He was very on top of the market and would send us listings as soon as they became active. David's response time was impeccable and we were constantly updated with developments. Once we found our future home, he walked us through the entire process with clear and calm guidance. We were impressed with his negotiation skills and relationships with other parties, including selling agents, inspectors, and lenders. If you are looking for a Realtor that will find you your new home with confidence, efficiency and grace, you need look no further! --Kim & Cody Bryant
