Owner and Chief
Hello, I’m Connie Fuksa and I run this show with the help of my very talented team! I’ve been working in title, real estate and mortgages for a long time and have lots of info locked up in my head I sometimes forget is there. I started working at Foote Title Group in 1986 when my mom started the company and have taught myself every job we do. I took over Foote Title Group 20 years ago. Now my jobs are mostly administrative and marketing. Mostly behind the scenes things to keep this train on track.
I’ve been married, for 25 years, to the most patient and supportive guy on the planet. He is my cheerleader and advisor.
I am a mom to an amazing Navy Sailor that I couldn’t be more proud. Also mom to Dozer our english bully and Zander our 10 yr old mini dachshund (who totally rules the house!)
I love gardening, riding my Harley and anything I can do to be outside.

Waldorf, Maryland Office
Operations Manager/Closer MD and VA
Hi, I’m Shari Papanicolas, but you can just call me Shari and yes my last name is Greek! I’ve been with Foote Title Group for more than 12 years and I have done it all, answering phones, processing files, post-closing files and handling settlements. Most importantly making sure that your closing is handled with the time and detailed attention that it deserves. Every purchase and refi is important to you and it is just as important to me! I make sure that your settlement process is as stress free as possible because you are busy with so many things, that I don’t want you to worry about the behind the scenes work. I know your file from the moment it comes through the door until you get your keys. Multi tasking is my strong point. I am a Mom to four very successful children, two dogs, Jax and Taylor, and I am married to a great husband! Let’s just say I can handle craziness!
I am a loyal Baltimore Ravens fan, and spend my Sundays in the fall at as many games as I can attend. I also volunteer as a Wish Grantor for the Make a Wish foundation.
Maryland or Virginia I can assist you with closings in either state. You can contact me anytime at 301-870-8525
Maryland Closing Coordinator
Hi, I’m Becky, I am the lady that immediately welcomes you to our Waldorf, MD office.

A little personal info about me. I’ve been in a relationship for 18 years to a wonderful man that has always stated “the only thing he would like to change about me is my last name”. Of course, I cannot forget my proudest moments are my all-grown up daughter and her daughter, plus my sweet doggie babies – 2 Papillons. During my free time – it’s simple, I just have fun!

Hi, I’m Denise, the newest addition to the awesome team at Foote Title Group. My professional background is Broker/Dealer operations and office administration, so it’s been an enjoyable challenge learning the ropes of title!
Other recent changes in my life – getting married and moving from Massachusetts to Maryland. Thankfully my wonderful husband is empathetic when I tell him…which is often, how much I miss my daughter, son in-law and especially my two grandsons, who are my pride and joy! Not to mention my 5 brothers and 5 sisters…yes, that’s right, I am one of 11 and am also a twin. God bless my mother, right! I enjoy cooking, hiking, traveling, riding with my husband on our Harley and the beach.
So, I wouldn’t be from Boston if I didn’t say it’s been “wicked” cool working here and look forward to meeting ya’ll when you walk through our door.

Hi, I’m Victoria Brawner but everyone calls me Vickee. I have been in title for more than 13 years and out of that, the last five years I’ve been with Foote Title Group. If you ask my coworkers they’d say I’m fun, outgoing, caring and a very meticulous. I always work hard to make sure everyone has the best closing experience possible. When it comes to your closing you can be sure that I have reviewed every aspect and know everything about it and will make sure everything is taken care of for you.
