I 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
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
