OUR HISTORY

Our Start

While working as a realtor since 1972, Sam Goebel recognized the need for a real estate and personal property Auctioneer in the Marshall County area and so in 1982 Sam, along with his wife Judy founded Oak Crest Auctions. From that point forward, Oak Crest Auctions began to grow. Conducting numerous real estate and personal property auctions throughout 1980’s and ‘90’s.

A Family Approach

In 1995, Sam and Judy’s son Dave Goebel followed in his father’s footsteps and became an Auctioneer. Dave worked alongside his father helping to grow the organization. By early 2000, Oak Crest Auctions was conducting over 75 real estate, farm, antique, household & equipment auctions all throughout the state of Indiana and beyond.

Oak Crest Auctions Today

In June of 2013, aspiring auctioneer Justin Croy joined the Oak Crest Auctions team helping with auction preparation and working as a bidder’s assistant. Later that year, Justin attended auction school and by 2014 was calling bids for Oak Crest Auctions. Today, Oak Crest Auctions continues to be one of the leading auction firms in the area, offering services for all types of assets and conducting Live, Webcast and Online Only auctions. Since our founding in 1982, we have SOLD over 1,000 pieces of real estate at public auction and conducted thousands of successful personal property auctions.
