Roberta Candelaria

Owner/Designated Broker of Phoenix Urban Spaces

I started my career in real estate in sales and marketing of new condominiums. After gaining experience working and learning from other successful real estate firms, I opened Phoenix Urban Spaces with a continued focus on attached living. My team and I specialize in condos, townhomes and lofts.

I have extensive experience in new home construction. If you are considering a newly constructed home, having me in your back pocket will insure you get the best price and finish level. I know how new home builders think!
If you are considering right-sizing into a maintenance-free lifestyle, I will put together a customized tour of new and existing communities to start our search.

If you are considering purchasing a vacation home, give me a call to brainstorm! I also work 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 me. 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, I will provide you with at market overview specifics for your product type.
