GoDutch Realty es mucha galleta

GoDutch Realty es mucha galletaI love galletas – cookies, I hope you do too. Because you know, GoDutch Realty is mucha galleta!

To be mucha galleta, you have to be not only skilled, capable, and shrewd, but also competent.

Fortunately, that is not hearsay. We can prove that many clients agree that we, at GoDutch Realty, are mucha galleta. Check our testimonials.

Many years ago, it was customary to say that someone was galleta. Then Pozuelo started marketing their cookies on TV as being muuucha galleta. That stuck!

I know myself well in accepting that sometimes “estoy sentado en la galleta” or I am sitting on the cookie. This means I’m stubborn and sometimes even intransigent. It has helped me a lot running a real estate business for almost 35 years, por dicha, gracias a Dios!

¿Que quería, galleta María? – What else did you want?

Tener mucho Colmillo or colmilludo – astute business person

The Opposite

For the opposite of being galleta, there are a few options:

Bombeta or bombetas – an inept person – a charlatan – someone who thinks he’s an expert, who knows about everything and doesn’t – also is a firecracker.

Tortero – a person who is always running into trouble

As usual, I want to thank Christopher Howard, for his assistance. You can buy his pocketbook Official Guide to Costa Rican Spanish on Amazon.

A special thanks to Alf Giebler, author of A lo Tico. You can buy his buy on Libreria Internacional.

If you are looking to buy a home in Costa Rica or invest in a condo anywhere in the central Valley, or looking for any property for sale in Escazu, you need to call me. I have been selling real estate in Escazu for over 20 years and can show you hundreds of happy buyers of real estate in Escazu and other areas. To me, a deal is not a good deal unless both buyer and seller are happy.
