Meet Roche

My Goal is to exceed the customer’s expectations in every single transaction and to form a strong, loyal bond that lasts a lifetime

Roche Akkarappuram

Hello, I’m Roche. The last name – Akkarappuram – makes me laugh when people try to pronounce it. Please, just go slow: “AH-kah-rah-poo-rum.” It's from India but credit my dad for “Roche”; he lived in Hamburg, West Germany in the 1970s.


I have lived in Tallahassee since 1986 and attended Leon High School (Class of 1997), Tallahassee Community College, and Florida State University.


My best childhood memories come from living in a diverse community near Florida State University. I learned about diversity, cultural identity, family values, and food!


I worked in the Florida state government before a mid-life switch to real estate.


I love the Realtor® lifestyle and re-imagining my work life, not being stuck in a cubicle waiting for Friday. I have more freedom to enjoy family time. I love running, recreational boating, St. George Island, sci-fi (especially “Star Wars”), and my latest hobby: photography, graphic design, and video editing. I also volunteer by feeding the homeless at Grace Mission Episcopal Church. When I want to tune out and relax, I listen to old-school R&B, hip-hop, soft rock, and pop.


Armor Realtors are professionals, but we're also family. After all, Tallahassee is a family town, and Armor has been deeply rooted since 1989.


Give me a call. Whether you want the perfect home with a nice backyard for “Chewie” or just want to chat about music, movies, or the latest streaming shows. 


Let’s get started!
