Get ‘Er Done Girls land national honours

  • May. 22, 2013 3:29 p.m.

For the Get ’Er Done Girls winning awards is nothing new; however, winning the CMP Mortgage Brokerage of the Year award (fewer than 25 employees) is new territory.

Over 600 people attended the eighth annual CMP Canadian Mortgage Awards in Toronto, celebrating the best in the industry.

“This is a huge award. This is our Stanley Cup,” said Alyson Thiessen, partner and owner of Get ‘Er Done Girls.

Nominated by their peers, the Get ’Er Done Girls were one of eight firms nominated across the country for the award, including Dave McNabb from Dominion Lending Centres Regional Mortgage Group, also from Red Deer.

“We’re just so excited to bring back this kind of hardware to Red Deer, because we do consider that we won it for Red Deer.”

With winners in 21 unique categories from Vancouver to Halifax and smaller markets in between, the awards were a true representation of the quality that is present in the Canadian mortgage industry.

The panel of five industry professional judges reviewed finalist submission forms that answered important questions about the nominated companies.

“We’re totally in love with Red Deer, and I hope Red Deer is totally in love with us.”

For the past nine years the Get ’Er Done Girls have been building their brand and clientele, and are now one of Central Alberta’s most unique and best-defined brands in the area.

“We have been able to generate a lot of business because we are so well-known in the community,” she said.

Since 2008 the five Get ‘Er Done Girls, Thiessen, Lesley Krawiec, Shelia Tremblay, Katherine Meadows and Cheryl Kowalsky have been generating large volumes of clients derived from previous clients, referrals, and aggressive advertising.

“This is our mojo, serving this community.”

Thiessen said that Get ‘Er Done Girls’ cohesive teamwork and positive frame of mind are contributing factors to why they won the award.

“We’re just some little girls from Red Deer and we’re on the national stage,” said Thiessen.

Even with the success of Get ‘Er Done Girls Thiessen said that they are not looking to grow in bodies, but would like to increase the number of clients per agent.

“Because it’s working I don’t want to mess with it.”
