Julie Bonacio is proud to have built one of the most intimate and personal realty offices in Saratoga Springs. “I was born and raised here, and I’m proud to be raising my family in this very special community that I call home,” says Bonacio, who also serves as vice president of Bonacio Construction—and whose husband, Sonny, is president of the firm. “It’s a pretty nice arrangement,” she says. In addition to her duties at Bonacio Construction, Julie also runs her own realty company, Julie & Co. Realty on Division Street in Saratoga, which she founded in 2015. “I wear a couple of different hats here in town,” she says.
With more than two decades of experience in the real estate industry—first as an agent working with her husband to build commercial and residential properties—Bonacio naturally decided to branch out and establish her own brokerage firm. “My goal was for Julie & Co. to become the premier boutique real estate company in the Capital Region,” she says. To that point, today, Julie & Co. Realty has more than 20 knowledgeable, innovative and highly skilled real estate agents in its employ, who specialize in residential resale, new construction and commercial and residential leasing.
Bonacio is particularly excited about her latest piece of property that’s recently hit the market: a four-bedroom combined corner condominium just steps away from all the restaurants, boutiques and galleries of Downtown Saratoga. “It’s a new listing, and it’s just phenomenal,” says Bonacio. With more than 4900 square feet of space, this double unit at 268 Broadway features smooth, imported granite flooring as well as a huge custom kitchen, featuring luxury appliances by Miele, Viking and more. The future owner of the combined condominium will be able to enjoy his or her espresso on a balcony overlooking historic Congress Park, in addition to a second attached balcony to the lavish master suite, complete with bells and whistles such as a gas fireplace, expansive walk-in closet, a lush bathroom with a custom shower and double vanity mirror and a private gym. All three secondary bedrooms include beautiful views of Saratoga with en-suite baths and generously sized closets. Also included are four parking spots in a secured and heated garage, plus one large storage unit. “This is luxury at its finest,” says Bonacio.
