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.
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.

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.
I am very fortunate that Barbie Whitworth and Shay Moudahi came into my life at a very difficult time for me. They made the horrendous task of selling our home and buying a new one as easy as it could be when my personal life was in great confusion and unhappiness. They are two of the most knowledgeable, helpful, considerate, friendly and ‘fun’ people I know and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants to buy or sell. By the way, they’re great at ‘garage sales’ too! I feel I’ve made two new friends who I’ll enjoy seeing and hearing in the future. They are two superior realtor agents and very good people.

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%!

It is with confidence that we give accolades to Barbie Whitworth and Shay Moudahi for their tireless pursuit to sell our home this spring.Their commitment, tenacity and professionalism were unmatched. Barbie and Shay were dedicated to selling our home using weekly open houses and colorful and creative brochures.They were high energy and friendly and gave good advice. While marketing our home, they met with us regularly to keep us up to date with the open house activity and feed back. Their positive attitude helped us to be hopeful that our home would sell within the time frame we had hoped for, and it did! For those who would consider “For Sale By Owner”, Barbie and Shay’s fee will be the wisest money you spend. We realized that we could never do the job they did and would not have had the great results that they were able to create.

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.

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. Yes, we had our doubts, they were “new on the block”, but once we started to work together we knew we made a right choice. From the very first day, they’ve helped us with staging the house, taking great professional photos, attention to details, worked tirelessly hosting every weekend open-houses, being present at every showing we had. We felt we didn’t have to worry about strangers going through our house, we knew we were in good hands. Their work ethic to get feedback from clients that showed interest in the house was great and they’ve certainly raised the bar for customer service for Real Estate agents on the Coast. Communication was excellent! We were informed and updated on the progress, had an immediate feedback after each showing or open house. Overall, their services were superb, they sold our house in a very difficult market and through the whole process we’ve developed a great personal relationship. We would highly recommend their services to family, friends and anyone who wants results. 11 out of 10!
Thank you Barbie and Shay!

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.

After a three-month contract with another Realtor without my home being sold, and having to move and leave my house empty, my phone call to Barbie was a gift from above. Barbie and Shay had seen my house previously and believed in its value and in their ability to find a purchaser for it. They were able to offer me their aggressive and respectful service at a time when the market was saturated and bringing house prices down. It is never easy to leave a home one loves, and it was especially difficult to deal with the sale of it from over 1000 km away. Barbie and Shay alleviated many of my worries by being in constant contact with me, and by taking care of the small maintenance issues without even being asked. My neighbors were also keeping an eye on the property and were impressed with care and respect Barbie and Shay showed to the sale of my home and to them as my support system, and will likely hire them to sell their home in the near future. Once a purchaser was found, Barbie and Shay had everything in place to easily get through a quick sale, despite the awkwardness of now living in a different province. It was unfortunate for me that I was selling during a slump in the market, but I know that Barbie and Shay worked hard to get me the best price and best purchaser possible. I dream of one day returning to the Sunshine Coast and will definitely ask Barbie and Shay to be my Realtors if I do. Cheers, Tina ------------- House hunting can be a very stressful and daunting task, but working with Barbie and Shay to find just the right house has been a real pleasure. They work together beautifully; they listen; they recommend, they take you where you want to go, and they deliver.
I can't recommend them highly enough!
