Born and raised in Frederick, Chris has seen Frederick grow from a small western Maryland town into a busy metropolitan city. He is taking his knowledge of the area and joined the Jim Bass Group of Real Estate Teams, LLC, the perennial #1 Real Estate Team in Frederick County.
Previously, Mr. Grove spent 25 years in the horse racing industry as a trainer, jockey and exercise rider. Competing mostly in the Mid-Atlantic area, he consistently finished in the top ten among trainers for “Wins” in the state of Maryland and was chosen as the state’s 2007 Trainer of the Year. His career topped $16M in earnings with over 600 victories and competed in the world renown Preakness Stakes twice (2011 & 2012) at Pimlico Race Course. As a jockey, Mr. Grove was the leading amateur jockey in North America three years in a row (1993-1995) while riding all over the world. This is the competitive nature Chris brings to the Jim Bass Group and the Maryland Real Estate scene.
Mr. Grove has been married to his wife, Rachael, for over 20 years and they have two sons, Noah (17) and Carson (14). Noah competes on two National teams, the USA National Sled Hockey team and the USA Amputee Soccer team while Carson spends his energy playing on three soccer teams, including FC Frederick’s top team.
Born and raised in Frederick County, Mr. Grove is involved in the community. He is a member of the Frederick Church of the Brethren, donates his time to the Frederick Soup Kitchen & Maryland Food Bank and volunteers as a head coach of a local youth soccer organization.
