Thankful Thursdays…For the “Git R Done” People


Have you noticed there are the “Git R Donepeople and the “Someone oughta" people?


Some of the walking paths at Kickerillo are along Cypress Creek. In some areas, there is a 125-foot sheer drop into the creek. Recently a sinkhole developed…under part of the path. Orange cones were placed at the sinkhole but this was just the tip of the issue. 

Our friend, Greg, who does everything imaginable at the parks in this area, is a Git r done guy. Rather than wait for the Road and Bridges Department who are stressed with repairing things after our recent bad weather, Greg got bags of Sakrete and placed them under the path and along the drop.  


Rain was in the forecast so the bags would harden. He and another worker were out today covering all of this with dirt. 


                                         (That's Greg on the right!)

This should hold until the Road Crew can do a permanent fix. 


You’ve been around them! I was consulting on a vacant listing in FL. The pool needed cleaning. While I was in the home taking photos and making notes, the “Git R Done” agent grabbed the pool pole skimmer net and began removing leaves and palm fronds. 

A favorite agent had a listing in Boca that needed some TLC. The sellers could not afford what needed to be done, so the Git R Done agent showed up in his free time and mowed the grass, trimmed bushes, and did whatever he could to help prepare the home for sale.  In the 2008 down real estate market, the house had an offer in two weeks!



Thank you to the GIT R Done people in the world.

Good morning Kathy. While some may think the "Get R done" are foolish at times, it is just the way they are. If it needs to be done "Get R Done"! Enjoy your day.

Wayne Martin We need the Git R Done people!  There are too many who point fingers or say "someone should."

Good morning Kathy.  I can definitely be a Get R Done type of person when getting a listing, or even showing property.  No one knows what it takes to get a home sold like a real estate agent.  Sometimes we have to do what we have to do to help the sale along! I love the story about the guy bringing dirt and bags of sakrete.  We should all be a little more like that and the world would be a better place.  Have a great day!

I would much rather be around people who will git r done than people who are just going to complain about something, haha.

Good morning Kathy,

I like "Get it Done" people too! Especially in our business! We have to be problem solvers and figure out how to get things done even if we have to pitch in and help just like that agent did for his listing in Boca!

Jun 13, 2024 06:07 AM
Kathy Streib

Dorie Dillard Austin TX I agree!!!  Those are the agents sellers and buyers need to hire. Those who see what needs to be done, and then they do it.

Hi Kathy... I lean towards getting things done. Stop the talking and just do!

Couldn't agree more Nina Hollander, Broker   too many talkers and not enough GitRDone people.

Kathy Streib and isn't it amazing that we can almost immediately see who are the talkers and who are the GitRDone people?

 Kathy, Just like in our real estate business, we need to be adept problem solvers and find solutions to challenges. We must be willing to step in and assist whenever necessary to ensure things get done!

The country seems to be split almost evenly into two types of people...the Get R Done people, and the Hand it To Me people.

Hello Kathy and good for them to take action on this instead of waiting for the town to get to it.

Yes to the Git R Done people, Kathy! You are definitely one of them and everyone around you should be thankful for that. I love Larry the Cable guy! He has a radio show on Xm radio that I enjoy on Saturday mornings.

Git R Done Folks are my kind of people! I'd venture to say all the team players including all our service people were Git R done Folks to the max.  All problem solvers or as I like to say - solution seekers.  Just like you Ms Kathy!

Hi Kathy,
There are the "That's not my job people" and the "Git R Done People".

Jun 13, 2024 04:13 PM

That is very clever to place the bags and let then harden.  I should commit that into the archives if it is ever needed.
