Contact Cara C. Carley
Cara worked closely with my husband and I to sell our home. She was very responsive to emails, texts, questions, and concerns. She was prompt in getting back to us with offers and feedback. On top of that she was sweet and lovely to work with. Thanks so much, Cara!— Nicole
In 2010 my husband and I were looking at becoming empty nesters when the last of our kids graduated from college. We decided to sell the big house and settle into a ranch that would require little upkeep and no stairs. We actually bumped into Cara at a showing she was doing. We clicked immediately. She gave us her card and we called her less than a week later. Cara helped us get our house ready to sell by giving us advice on staging and what needed to be painted. She did one open house and the house sold in less than 3 weeks. Now we had to find a place to live. After looking at probably a couple dozen homes, Cara suggested we look at a lot in the Creekside development in Rock City Falls. Again, Cara read us right and showed us a lovely lot. We decided to build a ranch in the neighborhood and stayed there for 8 years. Our next move was to Syracuse to be nearer to family. After not talking to Cara for 8 years, I called her to help us sell the home she helped us build. Again she stepped up to the challenge and sold our home in less than a month. I don’t know what I would have done without Cara by our side walking us through the procedure of buying and selling our homes. I would recommend Cara to anyone buying or selling a home. She knows what her clients want and how to get it for them.— Robin
Cara is honest, helpful, and genuine, and made purchasing my first home a pleasant process. I truly love where I live and couldn't be happier with my home! Bonacio's entire team does beautiful work and it shows in every aspect.— Kristina H.
Thank you for allowing us to see this beautiful home again. It is absolutely gorgeous but does not fit the needs of my clients. They thought that another walk-through would perhaps shed some light on what their needs are but they feel it’s a little too big as far as bedrooms and a little too small as far as kitchen and are probably leaning more toward an open concept lay out. You will find the right buyer for this drop dead gorgeous house but sadly it won’t be us. I personally think the space leans toward a super high-end B and B, that would be awesome! Thank you again for your time and I will definitely be keeping this on my list and passing it along to anyone that I know including agents broker’s and buyers. She certainly has the right company marketing for her as you and Julie are exceptional at what you do and I really appreciate you both. Thank you,— Dona
My husband and I met Cara after having very little luck finding our forever home. With a very tight seller’s market, we inquired about building and became very excited about the prospect of being able to get our dream home within our budget. After a few meetings with Cara, we are incredibly excited to start building with Cicero Builders and make our dream home in Ballston Spa a reality!— Marissa B.
We are in the process of building a home with Del Zotto & Sons and couldn’t be happier with their level of expertise, collaboration, and patience throughout the design process. David Del Zotto and Cullen Zdunek did an impressive job at creating a custom home that met our lifestyle and budget. They have been professional, truthful and genuinely interested in helping us make this our dream home. We appreciate the team effort from Del Zotto & Sons, realtor Cara Carley from Julie & Co., and Design Architect, Bob Flansburg with Dreamscapes Unlimited. Each individual has been an integral part in making this a wonderful experience for our family.”— Michael & Stephanie L.
