About Penny & John
Penny and John Bohnen, life-long residents of Hinsdale, founded County Line Properties in 1991 to bring a new level of professionalism and enthusiasm to the local residential real estate scene.
Born and raised in Hinsdale, John has spent the majority of his work career in the construction industry. He has been involved in real estate development, land assembly and construction, both commercial and residential. He acts as managing Broker of County Line Properties and works closely with many area builders and developers.
Penny, a former elementary school teacher in the local school system, began her real estate career for over 25 years ago, joining a local firm and soon distinguishing herself as one of the top local professionals. A mother of three, she has successfully juggled home and career creating the balance necessary to start her own company. Penny devotes her time to her clients and to the many local charities and "causes" that make our village such a special place to live. She is the consummate professional and an integral part of our community. While participating in the sale of "all homes, great and small" she particularly enjoys welcoming new families to our villages and helping them solve their home needs as well as helping them get "up and running" with their lives.
Having the advantage of truly understanding the essence of Hinsdale and its neighboring villages, and having experienced first hand the success and professional skill that Penny had achieved, he realized that there was a need for a quality boutique real estate company in Hinsdale and that he and Penny most probably brought the right combination of background and skill to fill this need and achieve success.
The rest is history. County Line Properties, has, in a few short years, established itself as one of the most successful firms of its kind in the greater Hinsdale area. Both Penny and John look forward to assisting you in your home search or sale and to that successful end, pledge their professional skills, their resources and their energy.
