Julie Bonacio, Striking Out on her Own

JJulie Bonacio, HERLIFE Magazineulie Bonacio is a woman who blithely drinks life in, one sparkling sip at a time.  Along the way, she enriches all who cross her path and attacks challenges with verve and a positive outlook. Her love of family and friends, combined with her can-do attitude, has propelled her into her intensely successful real estate career. She and her husband, Sonny, work in neighboring offices, he at Bonacio Construction and she in her newly founded real estate firm, Julie & Company Realty, LLC. “I was actually born in Saratoga Hospital and grew up here, graduating from Saratoga High School. I met Sonny the summer of 1989 when I came home after graduating from Katharine Gibbs College in Boston,” she smiled. “He ran into my sister, Shawna, asked her about me and she gave him my number. Once we started dating regularly, we were connected at the hip. We had a ball and then the business just fell into place. We challenge each other and have the same drive from two different perspectives with the same goal.”

Developing Experience and Credentials
Julie voiced that the logical step for her was to obtain her real estate license. She worked for her father at his sales center right after college selling manufactured and modular homes. Another inspiration was Carol Tarantino. “I worked alongside her at Roohan Realty in Saratoga Springs, and she truly was an inspiration and icon in the industry,” she noted. “I was so fortunate to work with Tom Roohan and the Roohan agents for more than 15 years. They are truly like one big family. As Bonacio Construction continued to grow, I was pulled in more and more with our company, and it was a natural migration to start my own brokerage.”
