Goedker Realty, Inc.
About Kevin Goedker
Since 1965, people in the Brainerd Lakes Area have trusted the GOEDKER name for all their real estate needs.
Servant-leader! That sums up my passion. The real estate industry has been a part of my life for as long as I have been alive. I find helping real estate agents perform their jobs better extremely satisfying. I have provided services as a real estate trainer, instructor, speaker, coach, consultant and mentor. I was first licensed in 1989, have owned and operated real estate brokerages in both Florida and Minnesota, and have practiced leadership and serving for as long as I can remember.
I have served for several years in leadership capacities within the local real estate trade organization as a REALTOR®, local Board President, local multiple listing Board President, State Association Director, State Political Action Committee Trustee, and nationally as a Federal Political Coordinator for Former US Congressman Chip Cravaack. I have taught new member orientations, Code of Ethics classes, and Minnesota real estate Pre-License courses for Central Lakes College.
I managed and coordinated the management of hundreds of rental properties, real estate transactions and several real estate agents. I spent eight years as an elected official on the Brainerd City Council where I served as President of the Council. I continue to be involved in many other community related events and groups. I pride myself on being an avid reader and life-time learner.
I honorably served in the United States Marine Corps (Semper Fi). When it comes to real estate, the local community and integrity, you can rely on my experience and knowledge.
