Dave grew up on the family farm in central Ohio – the youngest of three children. He attended the same small rural school from kindergarten to high school and later studied Real Estate and Business law at Ohio University in Athens. Not being one to put things off; Dave obtained his Ohio Real Estate license, married his beautiful bride, had his first child, started  at Honda of America Mfg. and bought his first home (a duplex) before turning 23.

Things did not slow down for the Oelker’s from there. Dave’s work ethic, ideas and talents were quickly recognized at Honda; bringing promotions and more responsibility early on. At the same time; the family added a son, a dog and a cat or two. Although real estate sales took a back seat during Dave’s time at Honda he was able to put his skills to work through buying and selling homes, commercial buildings and businesses of his own and helping close family and friends do the same. In their first 10 years of marriage Oelker’s moved 8 times. Finally building a home on the family farm that they still own and visit. They also own several rental properties and a coffee house in Urbana, Ohio.  

Since relocating to Sarasota, Dave has been able to pursue his passion for real estate fulltime.  Not only helping others buy and sell homes, but actively investing in local real estate himself.  Dave has a keen understanding of the local market and has a proven track record of closing deals that his clients are delighted to be a part of. 

Dave holds his real estate sales license in both Ohio and Florida and is finally a proud Grandpa.
