Dale Grischow

Family is everything to Dale Grischow.   That is, family and a great sense of humor.  When you meet Dale, you understand why he was voted “best sense of humor” in high school.  His positive approach to life is filled with nonstop smiles and tons of laughter.

As a member of the Congregational Church of Batavia, Dale enjoys singing in the choir.  His love of music goes back to early childhood, when family get-togethers were centered on singing and dancing with extended family.

Dale grew up in Bartlett, graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in marketing, and has lived in Geneva since 1994 with his wife, Marjie, and their two daughters.  Both girls inherited Dale’s love of humor and music—both are involved in Improv comedy in Chicago.  As a family, they prioritize spending time together and their love of family vacations has brought them back to Disney World and Anna Maria Island multiple times, as well as an annual trip to Green Lake, Wisconsin, where his parents have a place on the water. 

The phrase “bleeds cubbie blue” aptly describes Dale and his love of the Chicago Cubs.  As a kid, Dale remembers going to Cubs games with his parents, the best being when Mom or Dad would knock on the classroom door to dismiss him from school and take him to Wrigley Field!  Their lifelong dedication to the Cubs was rewarded last fall when the Cubs won the World Series.  As Dale put it, “there was crying in ‘69, ‘84, and ’03, but tears of joy in 2016.” In addition to his devotion to the Cubs, Dale also enjoys fishing, golfing, and theatre and is a member of the Batavia Lions Club.

Dale’s love of real estate began in his college coursework, but it was his experience flipping a house with his dad that got him truly hooked.  He started with Coldwell Banker in 1987 and has been with RE/MAX since 1994.  With over 30 years of experience, Dale works with both buyers and sellers and provides professional photography and staging for all of his listings. He is available to his clients 24/7, dedicated to making the ideal real estate experience a reality.
