Phoenix Urban Spaces Team

Our agents have a number of years of experience in the Phoenix and Scottsdale real estate markets and have a good feel for the way that the local market evolves with changing conditions both in the area and nationwide. Additionally, our owner, Roberta, has experience in the construction field and applies that experience and her connections to further help our clients.

Roberta Candelaria

Owner/Designated Broker of Phoenix Urban Spaces

Roberta started her real estate career in sales and marketing of new condominiums. After gaining experience working and learning from other successful real estate firms, she opened Phoenix Urban Spaces.

Roberta has built her team at Phoenix Urban Spaces around the specific needs that she saw in the clients she helped.  She found that when people came to her, they were mostly in a state of transition…downsizing, retiring, starting a family, wanting to invest in real estate or looking for a new place to open a business.

The Phoenix Urban Spaces team began as specialists in condos, townhomes and lofts; but as their clientele grew, so did their expertise.

Roberta has extensive experience in new home construction. If you are considering a newly constructed home, having her in your back pocket will insure you get the best price and finish level. She knows how new home builders think!

If you are considering right-sizing into a maintenance-free lifestyle, she will put together a customized tour of new and existing communities to start our search.

If you are considering purchasing a vacation home, give Roberta a call to brainstorm! She also works with clients from out of state and out of the country.

If you are a first time home buyer, your experience is very important to her. When you close and move in to your new home you will have a complete understanding of the process from beginning to end, and will be 100% confident of your purchase.

If you are a developer considering bringing a new community to market, in exchange for hearing about your community, Roberta will provide you with market overview specifics for your product type.

We open doors to all your possibilities….

          Richard Lopez

          REALTOR Sales Associate

          Born and raised here, I am a Phoenician through and through.  As my family has been here before Arizona was considered a state, my roots are deeply set in the desert.  My professional background is enriched with excellent customer service skills.  In the 20 years of being in the financial industry I’ve helped many people discover financial freedom and created long lasting relationships because of the impacts I’ve made in their lives.  As a realtor®,  I have the ability to use my knowledge of the valley and experience as a professional, to be a valuable resource to any potential client.  Above all else, the most important thing for me is to listen and understand a person’s story.  Then, I go above and beyond to ensure that their story was made better because I helped them out in one way or another.  Helping others is my passion and it’s what I love to do.
