The true measure of our success, the final word from our clients:
We were first time home buyers and found ourselves in a multiple offer situation on a house we really wanted. Barbie and Shay gave us amazing guidance through the entire process. They went out of their way to make sure we felt confident and were informed buyers, and we got the house! They are very knowledgeable, quick to answer any questions, professional and very supportive. If you choose them, you'll not only have a great realtor team on your side but most likely new friends as well.

Barbie Whitworth and Shay Moudahi at Coldwell Banker Marquise Realty are probably the best Realty Team on the Sunshine Coast. They not only sold our home for more than the asking price, they helped us buy a new home for under market value.
They are both highly professional and presented our house on the market far above our expectations.
We highly recommend you use them for either buying or selling your home.
My husband and I cannot say enough about Barbie and Shay’s passion for what they do. They are professional and truly genuine. They found us the perfect home in Gibsons. Their knowledge of the market is outstanding. We would never have purchased our home without them. The property was not even listed yet, and had it have been we would have missed the opportunity. I had contacted 3 realtors on the internet. I had a call from Barbie within 24 hours of registering. I never did receive a call from the other 2.
They are both extremely service oriented in every way. It has not stopped with just the purchase of the house. I am calling Barbie for recommendations on contractors, handymen, gardeners, you name it, and she has recommended and provided the contacts. Her assistant Gillian is very supportive to Barbie and to myself and I am sure all the other clients.
We are so looking forward to moving into our new home. I highly recommend Barbie, Shay and their team for your real estate needs.

Barbie & Shay were knowledgeable, ethical and committed to Best Business Practices throughout the sale of my acreage. Their advertising was continuous and generous. Including internet, MLS, local papers and quality magazine coverage. I was delighted to find such good support with Barbie & Shay. Both are good realtors and more explicitly both individuals are of a high ethical base. Your humour and benevolence were a delight.

This past spring Barbie and Shay helped us in selling our home and purchasing another here on the Sunshine Coast. We found them to be very professional. They listened to us carefully and ascertained our needs accurately. They were quick to respond to both text and email. Selling and buying a home is an emotional business! Barbie and Shay supported us throughout in both a professional and personal way making the process as smooth as possible.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to family. Warmly,
Delma & Alan
It is our pleasure to share comments on our experience with Barbie Whitworth and Shay Moudahi regarding the sale of our home. We have lived in our home for 30 years and this was our first experience in selling a home. We encountered a very positive and excellent experience. From the presentation to the SOLD sign, each phase was superior. They were only a phone call or email away and answered all our questions on what we needed to do to sell our home. We always felt they were looking for a perfect fit and could tell they listened to our many wants. Our street is special and as they listed and sold other homes on our cul-de-sac, we felt very confident that they would do the best job. Most importantly, we sold our home for more than other agents thought possible.
We highly recommend Barbie Whitworth and Shay Moudahi for residential Real Estate needs.

My husband and I connected with Barbie and Shay on line and we are so glad we did. From the beginning of our search for our retirement home in the Sechelt area we were in good hands. With such a feeling of confidence and trust with their hard work and knowledge, they found the perfect home for us. Any questions about the property were answered immediately and within a short time my husband and I were in the process of living in our dream community close to the ocean where we both spent our childhood summers. The day of moving in, we were tired and had no food in our fridge. Barbie and Shay arrived at our door with a fresh hot pizza which certainly helped us regain energy for the work ahead. We would recommend Barbie and Shay 100%!

We would like to recommend Barbie and Shay for helping guide us through a very detailed and complicated listing and sale of our home in Gibsons. At the outset, they laid out their plans for selling our home and through their dedication and determination, our house was sold well within the timeframe that we had hoped for.
Their marketing strategies, including the flyer and open houses were key to our success. They were always there to hold our hand when needed and to be tough negotiators when required. We were so confident in their abilities that when the time came, we purchased our next home with Barbie and Shay.
Carol and Richard
We have only the most sincere respect and admiration for Shay Moudahi and Barbie Whitworth. Their integrity, professionalism and determination for a successful outcome was aptly demonstrated by excellent work done on our behalf.

I had a three month span in which to sell my property and being in a prominent location set off down the 'sale by owner' route. There was a bit of interest, a few viewings, no offers and six weeks down the road, panic set in so I appointed Barbie and Shay as Realtors.
Things started to move fast. A few pertinent suggestions to improve curb appeal, an excellent brochure, lots of advertising and open houses and plenty of feedback. Ten days after appointing them, an acceptable offer was made and a closing date arranged two days before I was due to leave Canada.
They did a first class, professional job. With everything signed and sealed I would have expected them to move on but no, they touch base with me regularly, drum up business for my garage sale, and helped to set it up. Way over and above the call of duty!
I look upon them both as personal friends now and if I get the opportunity to return to Canada, I'll be signing them up to find me a new home knowing that they will not waste my time showing me unsuitable properties.
Way to go guys!
Thanks a bunch

I have been involved in real estate financing for over 15 years, during that time I have worked with many realtors. Barbie Whitworth and Shay Moudahi have proven themselves to be very conscientious, productive real estate professionals. Their clients are always very well informed and comfortable with their real estate transactions and speak very highly of the exceptional service they receive from Barbie and Shay.
As a team they complement each other very well and have developed a very successful marketing program which has proven results in the Sunshine Coast area. Their professionalism, marketing and excellent reputation attracts clients to them, their attention to detail, integrity, and caring approach keeps clients with them.
I have been very pleased to work with Barbie and Shay on many successful transactions and look forward to assisting them well into the future as their business continues to grow and flourish.

-------------We met Barbie and Shay through a process of listing our house for sale by owner. After a couple of months and during the spring, the market became very saturated with other listings; we realized we needed more exposure and help so we decided to hire a Real Estate agent. After talking to Barbie and Shay and a few other Sunshine Coast Realtors, they’ve come across as a very professional efficient and eager to work.
We would recommend Barbie and Shay to anyone requiring truly professional Real Estate knowledge and skills.
They are acting for us in both a buying and selling situation and have greatly impressed us with their enthusiasm, professionalism and patience in ensuring we understood and were comfortable with all stages as the negotiations proceeded.
Their presentation brochure showed a very high and attractive standard which has had many favourable comments. Combined with their friendly approach, these attributes have made it great to have them working on our behalf.
Again, we recommend this team without reservation. They have given us confidence in their abilities and made it a pleasurable experience to do business with them.
