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 the capital district’s most successful contracting and building companies. Bonacio Construction has changed the skyline of Saratoga, helping transform the area from a quiet town into a vibrant city.
In conjunction with her work at Bonacio, Julie became licensed as a Sales Agent in 2000. She quickly brought the same success to real estate as she has to the construction business. She received the Top Agent of the Year for several years.
In November 2015, drawing on a decade and a half of experience and expertise in both construction and real estate, Julie forged the next step: she established her own brokerage firm. Julie & Co. Realty is an intimate, boutique firm 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 company. Since its inception, the firm has expanded to employ seventeen agents. Julie continues to be at the helm of the business – in both leadership and production. Her real estate career has culminated in over $275 million in sales.
Though Julie’s professional life takes her all over the capital region, her charitable work brings her back to her roots: Saratoga Springs. Born and raised in the “Spa City,” she currently lives there with her husband and three children – Gianna, Will and Luca. Her dedication and commitment to the community of Saratoga Springs is unmatched. Julie has been a member of the Saratoga Care Foundation Board, as well as the Flower and Fruit Mission since 2003. She has played a vital role in the fundraising success of many local charities including Saratoga Hospital, Saratoga-Sponsor-A-Scholar, Saratoga Bridges, Equine Advocates, National Museum of Dance, Universal Preservation Hall and Electric City Couture to name a few. Sonny and Julie feel it’s important to give to this amazing community we live in!
Additional accolades for Julie include the 2008 Saratoga Business Journal’s Top Ten Women in Business, 2008 Saratoga Today’s Women of Influence Award and the 2008 Recipient of The Capital District Business Review’s 40 Under 40 Achievement Award.
