Christy Fratta and Laura Burd

Maryland Title Works Unlimited is a full-service, residential and commercial Real Estate Title, Escrow and Settlement company that has been serving the people and businesses of Maryland since 1997. Laura Burd and Christy Fratta have been close friends since 1974 and both began their careers at PaineWebber Mortgage Finance in 1992. Laura shifted to the title side of the business in 1994. Joining forces to combine Laura’s title knowledge and Christy’s mortgage, especially settlement, expertise in 1997, Maryland Title Works Unlimited was born. We are wholly women owned and proud of it! Although we could have expanded into several offices over the years, we prefer to remain small to be hands-on with every buyer, seller, realtor and loan officer. Our strong relationships are something we are extremely proud of. We love our clients!
