About Goedker Realty, Inc.


Since 1965, people in the Brainerd Lakes Area have trusted the “Goedker” name for all of their real estate needs. Goedker Realty currently provides real estate sales, property management and real estate appraisal services throughout the Brainerd Lakes Area, including Crow Wing County and portions of Cass County.


Gene Goedker started out part-time in real estate in 1965, while working full time at the Brainerd Paper Mill. Gene started his own company in 1967 and eventually built the company to eight offices throughout central  Minnesota. Gene helped many of today's local real estate professionals get started in the business.  Throughout the years, Goedker Realty has experienced many opportunities in the real estate industry and had many great relationships with other real estate agents and offices. We have worked under multiple franchises; however we are proud to now be a locally owned, independent business. We have been involved in developing, building,  insurance, commercial properties, property management, vacation rentals, and appraisals, which translates to a wealth of experience in all aspects of real estate. Today we focus on property management and appraisals throughout the Brainerd Lakes Area.


Gene sold off his interests in the early 1980’s and started over with a small company. Karol Goedker, now retired, was also involved for over 30 years in building the business, mainly in the property management field. Gene Goedker continues to be active on a day to day basis, mostly in the appraisal field. 


Gene and Karol’s oldest two sons, Dave and Steve, were real estate brokers with the company in the 1980’s.  Steve now lives in the Detroit, Michigan area with his family and has for about 20 years. David was more recently a real estate appraiser for the company until 2009, when he moved to Guatemala to be a missionary.  David and his wife are still serving as missionaries in North Dakota.  David’s son Noah became a licensed real estate agent with Goedker Realty in 2013.

Gene and Karol’s youngest son Kevin Goedker was first licensed in 1989, having worked for the company prior to that.  Kevin served in the United States Marine Corps from 1990 to 1995.  Upon Honorable Discharge, Kevin was licensed in Florida and eventually started his own real estate and property management company in Destin,   Florida. Kevin re-joined the Brainerd Lakes Area Goedker Realty in 2000.  Kevin is currently the Broker of Record and owner of Goedker Realty, Inc., making it a second generation company.


In 2014, Kevin took on the position of Office Manager for Weichert REALTORS, Tower Properties. Goedker Realty still handles property management and appraisal services. Any sales activity is directed through Weichert REALTORS, Tower Properties
