Aparna Rao enjoys meeting new people and learning about different cultures which undoubtedly influenced her decision to become a realtor six years ago.
From the beginning, Aparna’s goal has been to provide exceptional service and ensure that her clients have a positive experience from the moment they meet. She always strives to make their home buying or selling process as smooth and trouble-free as possible. After the closing, she continues to stay in touch, helping them in any way she can.
Growing up in India and coming to the US to attend graduate school, Aparna brings a background in environmental and civil engineering as well as her interest in architecture and historic homes to assisting clients in Santa Barbara and Montecito.
Aparna has travelled extensively and lived in Houston, Charlotte, North Carolina, Chicago and Dallas-Fort Worth. Relocating several times and living in different places has made her well aware of the challenges of starting over in a new place.
When she is not working with clients, Aparna volunteers as a Docent at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. She is also a parent volunteer for the Multimedia and Design (MAD) Academy at Santa Barbara High School.
On a personal level, she likes spending time with her family, taking walks on the beach, hiking and practicing yoga.
