Julie Bonacio, along with her husband Sonny, began their careers over 25 years ago in Saratoga Springs, NY. What started as a small, local business with just a handful of employees has expanded into one of the Capital District’s most successful contracting and building companies. Bonacio Construction, Inc. has changed the skyline of Saratoga, helping transform the area from a quiet town into a vibrant city.
It was a natural step for Julie to become a realtor in 2000. She quickly brought the same success to real estate as she has to the construction business. In November 2015, drawing on a decade and a half of experience and expertise in both fields, Julie established her own real estate brokerage. Julie & Co. Realty is an intimate, boutique brokerage with far-reaching capabilities. Specialties include residential resale, new construction, and commercial and residential leasing. Exceptional client service and attention to detail are the hallmarks of the rapidly growing brokerage with an emphasis on extraordinary when it comes to marketing its properties. Since it began, Julie & Co. Realty has expanded to 32 agents and 2 locations, the first in Saratoga Springs and the second in Schroon Lake. Julie continues to be at the helm of the business in both leadership and production. Her real estate career has culminated in over $370 million in sales and Julie & Co. Realty has repeatedly been ranked in the Top 15 Residential Real Estate Firms in The List from the Albany Business Review.
Finding great success in her career, Julie has previously been named Saratoga Business Journal’s Top Ten Women in Business, one of Saratoga Today’s Women of Influence, she was consecutively named Top Agent of the Year at her former firm, and was a recipient of Albany Business Review’s 40 Under 40 Award.
Though Julie’s professional life takes her all over the Capital Region, her charitable work brings her back to her roots in Saratoga Springs. Born and raised in the “Spa City,” she currently lives there with her husband, Sonny, and their three children – Gianna, Will, and Luca. Julie has served on the Saratoga Care Foundation Board and the Flower and Fruit Mission through Saratoga Hospital. She has played a vital role in the fundraising successes of many local charities including the Saratoga Hospital Foundation, Saratoga Sponsor-A-Scholar, Saratoga Bridges, the National Museum of Dance, Universal Preservation Hall, Electric City Couture, and Equine Advocates, for which she won an award for her dedication and work on its annual awards.
