Andria provides 27 years of real estate sales and investment experience to one of the most prestigious and sought–after real estate markets in the United States. Serving discriminating national and international clients, Andria represents luxury homes, estates and land in the Santa Barbara area's upscale enclaves such as Montecito, Hope Ranch and the nearby Santa Ynez Valley — home to world–class wineries and thoroughbred horse ranches. She has ranked in the top three for closed sales in Santa Barbara's Multiple Listing Service and is the Principal and Team Leader for The Montecito Real Estate Group.
A California native, Andria graduated from UCLA and subsequently spent nearly a decade as a sales, advertising and public relations executive; excelling at marketing analysis, strategic planning, communications and customer service. Today, her commanding position in the top echelon of California real estate professionals is a result of that expertise combined with her strong negotiating skills, tireless work ethic, integrity, and dedication to her clients. As a visionary and founding partner of Grandi & Company, she utilizes her interior design talents to help her clients put their properties in the best light by providing guidance, resources and wholesale discounts.
A dedicated humanitarian and philanthropist, Andria serves on the Boards of the Westmont College Foundation and the Santa Barbara Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (CADA). She chaired CADA's Amethyst Ball, one of Santa Barbara's premier fund raising events for the past two years. She also climbed Mt. Pisco, a 19,000+ foot peak in Peru and trekked Bhutan with other community leaders to raise funds for the Daniel Bryant Youth and Treatment Center. After chairing the World-Polo Championship President's Ball Silent Auction and serving on other committees, she received the United Way's "Volunteer of the Year" award.
She is a dedicated runner, an activity earning Andria first place honors in her division of the Santa Barbara Half-Marathon. An avid snowboarder, snow and water skier, hiker and competitive Latin ballroom dancer, she also enjoys travel with her son and three adult daughters.
