Let Team 618 be hour home field advantage when buying or selling your home. Comprised of 2 premier agents, John Grissom and Chad Fuhrhop.

John Grissom: Born into a military family, I served in the U.S. Navy on the USS Norfolk, fast attack Submarine.  I met and married Janet through a fellow shipmates wedding (great fairytale story, ask me sometime).  I left the service and followed Janet’s Civil service career to Randolph AFB in San Antonio, Texas.  Here we had our first daughter, Jenna.  I finished my degree in Architecture just in time to move to RAF Mildenhall. We had our second daughter, Julia and enjoyed traveling for 5 years.  Returning to the states, we chose a location between our families.  Mine in Houston, Texas and hers in Chicago, Il.  Here we have put down roots and working to raise our girls. 

As the girls entered into school, I returned to the work force.  Real estate allows me to use my degree knowledge to better help clients to find the right house and see the possibilities in homes.  My time as a stay at home dad, adventuring out and about with my girls, gives me great knowledge of the area.  Now I get to use this to help you.

Chad Fuhrhop: I was born in Belleville and currently live in Freeburg.  I’m very fortunate to have 2 energetic children.  I’ve lived in this area all my life and enjoy taking an active role in the community.

I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 2001 with a B.S. in Business. Since I graduated from college, I have worked entirely in sales. My background includes medical and pharmaceutical sales until 2011 when I started my real estate career.  In every position I have sold and managed multi-million dollar accounts. In March of 2018 I partnered with John Grissom to form a real estate team. We call ourselves Team 618. Team 618 has more than $45 million in sales.

Some of my interests include: Spending time with my kids, coaching, boating, fishing, hunting, and cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals.
