Candice Engle, Agent
Indiana is Candi’s state of origin, but she adapted quickly to Florida when the opportunity to provide care for her mother came in 2004. And just when she thought life couldn’t get any better, she, her husband Terry, and her mother moved to Venice!
One of Candi’s proudest achievements was earning her Master’s Degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1997. Another was getting her Real Estate license in October, 2015.
Candi’s 25 years in healthcare, as an older adult educator, deepened her values of compassion, empathy, and confidentiality. She continues to enjoy the friendships of those with whom she provided assistance throughout those years.
The Engles enjoy biking, working in their yard, walking their Chihuahua (Abby), visits to the beach, and time spent with family and friends.
Candice has the drive and desire to bring about a successful purchase or sale. Her goal for you…to be as happy here in Venice as she is!
Carmela Wright, Agent
I moved to Florida 24 years ago from upstate New York. I settled in the Venice area almost 17 years ago. My husband took a job here and 2 weeks after he started I told him, “I hope you like your job because I’m not leaving Venice!”
When I am not selling Real Estate I spend my time with my husband and my dogs. We take long walks along the beach. I also enjoy kayaking, biking and fishing. In the off day where we have a bit of rain, I enjoy reading and baking. When given the chance, I take some time off and travel. I enjoy exploring this beautiful country in my RV but always look forward to coming home to Venice Florida!
When you decide to explore our quaint beach community contact me and I would enjoy showing you what makes our town a great place to live, work and vacation. Whether you are looking for a luxury waterfront home, condo, perfect vacation home or looking to relocate, I am here to assist you.
If you are looking for an experienced Real Estate professional who knows the Venice Florida Real Estate market let me put my local knowledge, experience, and dedication to work for you.
I will work as a Buyer’s Broker to give you confidence and peace of mind during the buying transaction. This means I work for you, the buyer. Let me know if you could use my help.
For those of you that may need to sell your Venice home (sorry about that), give me a call and let me show you how I can help you make the selling process less stress full.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Chris Lavoie, Broker Associate
I am a New England native that was watching “The Golden Girls” on TV one cold night and thought; why am I here in the cold when there is a warm place for me? A few years later, I found myself in the sunshine state. I have been enjoying the Florida lifestyle since 2005 and I love it! What’s not to love, the turquoise gulf waters, the white sandy beaches, long days of sunshine and beautiful golf courses to play every day of the year. I worked in new construction when I first arrived in Florida, but now I enjoy helping people find their piece of paradise in resale homes, condos, villas and new construction as well. I sell in the Venice area, Sarasota and North Port markets. People find me easy to work with but thorough and knowledgeable in the real estate field. I am known by many as “a really nice broker” and it is a reputation that has been making me smile for 28+ years.
Cindy Fucsik, Agent
In 1986 Cindy said “I’ve had enough of the cold” so her husband Mark and two children moved from freezing, snowy South Bend Indiana to sunny Venice Florida! No one has ever regretted that decision, Mark is now the Broker/Owner of Hackworth Realty. Their son lives and works in the area, their daughter and son-in-law moved back to Venice after marriage and have since blessed them with four granddaughters. In her free time Cindy enjoys boating, golfing, scuba diving and duplicate bridge.
Cindy has been working at Hackworth Realty since earning her license in 2001. Her knowledge of the area is a great help when looking to either buy or sell. She’s always happy to view properties for you in advance of your arrival and text you videos of homes you may be interested in. Living here has been a dream come true for her, she’d be happy to open the door to your dreams too!!

Eliska Formankova, Agent, Rentals
Eliska was born and raised in Kolin, a town in the Central Bohemia Region of the Czech Republic. After graduating from high school she attended the College of Information Management, Business Administration and Law and received a Bachelor degree in Environmental Economics. As a reward for her hard work, she came with her boyfriend at the time to Florida. She had spent some time in Toronto during high school and college, but was tired of cold weather there and also back home. “When I came to Florida, I instantly knew we are coming back”. So after a beautiful summer she returned home, finished her Master’s degree at the University of Life Sciences in Prague and was ready to kiss snow good bye. “I love Venice so much, I can’t imagine a better place to live and raise a child”. In 2014 she received her Real Estate license and became a sales agent and rental Manager for Hackworth Realty Group LLC.
Franz Biedermann, Agent
At the dawn of the new Millennium my wife and I decided to leave the cold climate of New Jersey behind and find a more pleasant place to live. After scouting several areas of Florida we came upon this little piece of paradise called the Venice Area. We could not have made a better choice.
I was born in Germany and came to the United States in the late Fifties. My original line of work was printing and for a number of years, I owned a small printing company in New Jersey. Our two sons showed no interest in that line of work therefore it was an easy decision to pack up and relocate to a warmer climate.
After close to 16 years, I can highly recommend living here and enjoy the Florida lifestyle. It will be my pleasure to assist you in making a move here to “Paradise”. I am fluent in German and English and will do all I can to be of help and use the knowledge of our area to make your move or decision as smooth as possible.
