Professional Experience

Representing both landlords and tenants, Andrea is focused on retail and restaurant deal-making in the Boston urban market. Since joining CBRE/New England Retail, formerly CBRE/Grossman Retail Advisors, in 2010, Andrea has negotiated leases on behalf of many of the city's premier landlords in high profile locations from Newbury Street to the Waterfront Seaport area. Highlighted transactions include Babbo Pizzeria, Shreve, Crump & Low, Athleta, FLOR, Nordstrom Rack, Pret A Manger, Lolita Cocina & Bar, Papagayo Restaurant, Scholars, PAUL Bakery, Oceanaire, Ledges, Whole Foods, Chipotle, Miniluxe, Magic Beans, Lululemon and many others. On the retailer side, Andrea enjoys working with a very select group of retailers and restaurants on their expansions plans. Committed to restaurant deal-making, Andrea is the leader of the CBRE Restaurant Practice Group and heads the global team.
