Oak Crest Realty was founded in 1975 by Leo & Beverly Eich. That same year Sam Goebel, a school teacher at the time, went to work for the firm. In just a short period of time he realized that real estate was the career for him. In 1979, he and his wife Judy, purchased the company. In 1982 Sam received his auctioneer license and they opened Oak Crest Auctions.  In 1990, they decided to buy into the RE/MAX Network. Since that time, RE/MAX Oak Crest Realty has been the leader in overall market share in Marshall County. Dave Goebel, Principal Broker, is excited to welcome Karen Barden and Jeannette Teall as new agents who look forward to serving you with all of your real estate needs.  Visit the RE/MAX Oak Crest Realty office at 507 E.
