Hi, My name is Paul Yurashevich and I have over a decade of experience in operational scale-up, finance and mergers & acquisitions in high-growth businesses. I focus on growth initiatives at Foote Title Group. I am licensed in Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina.

Connie Fuksa
Head of Operations

Hello, I am Connie Fuksa and I am in charge of the Operations.
I started working at Foote Title Group in 1986 when my mom started the company and have taught myself every job and process that we need to do for your home closing. I’ve been working in title and closings with real estate and mortgages for a very long time.
Now my job is mostly behind the scenes, to keep this team on track. I am a licensed closer in Maryland and Virginia.
I’ve been married, for 27 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 Riley our year old mini dachshund (who totally rules the house!) and a grandmom to my grandpup Beau.
I love gardening, riding my Harley and anything I can do to be outside.
