Cara Otto

Hello! I’m Cara Otto, your hometown REALTOR®. As a mid-Missouri native, attending Columbia Public Schools, graduating from Rock Bridge High School, Columbia is home! I take great pride in my community and am excited to serve the people of Boone County and the surrounding areas.

My professional journey give me an unique and diverse understanding of the real estate world. Upon graduation from the University of Wyoming, I entered the corporate world working in several facets of the real estate industry including insurance, title and mortgage lending. Now, over 20 years later, I have decided to leave the corporate world, bring my experiences full circle and pursue my dream of being a REALTOR.

My network of peers and professionals in the area help me provide unparalleled service and expertise to my clients regardless of your specific need. Whether that is buying your first or fifth home, a hobby farm or investment property – I can help you.

When not busy helping people achieve their dreams in real estate, I enjoy spending time with my husband Arlin and our 3 kids Paisley, Eli and Emmett on our hobby farm just NE of Columbia. I also stay busy with multiple extracurricular activities whether it’s my son’s baseball team, showing horses with my daughter, book club, Two Mile Prairie Elementary PTA, Hallsville Go-Getters 4-H Club or Hinkson Valley Pony Club.

I’d love to visit with you about how I can help you achieve your real estate related goals.
