We’re always looking to expand the ways we can reach our customers, which is why we’re now dabbling in YouTube. Here are the first two YouTube videos in Ultimate Pools history. The first one below takes a look at water features, most notably the sheer descents.

This one shows off the swim jets that not only put fresh water in your pool, but also feel pretty cool to have brushing against your legs.

Meet Renee Fawcett-Dunbar

Not only does Ultimate Pools look for the best in new customers, but we also look for the best in new employees. With that said, we’re confident we hit a home run in hiring Renee Fawcett-Dunbar.

Renee has been with us since June 19 as our Client Services Coordinator. Chances are that when you call our office, she’ll be the person you talk to. It’s something that comes natural for her and a big reason why we’re happy to have her on the team.

“I love it,” Renee said. “The great thing about this company is that it’s almost like a new company even though they’ve been around for a long time. Bryan and Deb [Stuart] want to change things up and move forward while keeping the same great service they’ve provided. I’m happy to be a part of the team and am willing to do whatever it takes. I’ll work on the computer, hang flyers, whatever it takes to move the company forward.”

With all due credit to the Hair Club for Men, Fawcett-Dunbar was a client before joining the team. Ultimate Pools designed her pool and she was an instant fit with Bryan and Deb. She had just retired after a 33-year teaching career, most recently as the RTI (Response to Intervention) Coordinator at Francis Elementary School in the Aldine Independent School District. Her work in that capacity, especially on computers, made her a perfect fit for Ultimate Pools.

“I had worked retail at the mall to make extra money in the past and am always looking for something interesting to do,” Fawcett-Dunbar said. “I got to know Bryan and Deb from working with them on our pool, got to know them very well and got to be friends with them. They needed some help, and with my experience with computers, I thought I could help.

“I love it. I always am looking to challenge myself and learn new things, and this job gives me that opportunity. It’s different from anything I’ve ever done and I really like the vibe of it.”

Renee is using her previous teaching job to help her serve Ultimate Pools’ customers. She’s well-versed in computers and data entry and, more importantly, in dealing with the public. Her main job as Francis Elementary’s RTI Coordinator was serving as a go-between for kids in kindergarten through fourth grade that were between regular classes and special education.

That experience also led for frequent interactions with parents in situations where clear communication was necessary. Those communication skills and ability to relate are invaluable assets that we covet at Ultimate Pools.

“A lot of my job as a teacher was data entry, campus technology, progress reports, report cards, and I try to use the knowledge I gained from that in this job,” Renee said. “And I enjoy working with the public and that was a big part of what I did before as a teacher.

“It reminds me of having conferences with parents. A big part of that is making them feel comfortable with me and feel comfortable with the situation. Bryan and Deb do a great job of communicating with the customers and that’s something that I want to do.”

While Fawcett-Dunbar has been a great public liaison since becoming our Client Services Coordinator, she wants to branch out from there and get familiar with the design portion of the business.

“I want to work with Bryan and learn everything about pools,” she said. “I want to learn about pool design, look to do some pools with Bryan. I feel like part of the gang here and will do whatever is necessary.”

Say hi to Renee when dropping by our office or while giving us a call. You can also contact her via email.

Building a swimming pool: a multi-decade investment

If you read anything on this website, please check out this article on what to do when meeting your pool builder. A pool is a long-term investment, therefore it’s important to have a game plan going in and carefully consider everything before signing a contract. So no matter what you do, read the above article. It can also be found under the “What to Consider” menu along the menu bar at the top of the page.

Investment in a pool: It’s not like buying jeans

The purpose of this article is to emphasize how important and how permanent installing a new swimming pool is. When you install a swimming pool, you are choosing a long-term investment — kind of like a 401K for your house. Therefore, this isn’t a process that you should cut corners and be cavalier about. A few days of contemplation — not only on what you’re willing to spend on a pool and spa, but what kind of features you want to have in your pool — are well worth it. A swimming pool isn’t an instant gratification gift like a pair of jeans or a brand-new shirt — something that you’ll use for three days and forget about. A swimming pool is something that can last three decades.

At Ultimate Pools, we realize this and that’s why we don’t use high-pressure sales tactics and work with you at every step of the process. From design to cost to maintenance, we make an investment in each pool that we build and keep track of the pools after they’re built. A swimming pool and spa is something that should bring you enjoyment for years and decades to come. We want you to enjoy your pool without thinking “what if?” or “what might have been.”

We try to remember these things every time we meet with a customer about installing a swimming pool. We recognize the investment that our customers make with Ultimate Pools and go out of our way to invest ourselves equally.

Ultimate Pools among best pool builders in Montgomery County

Since we started building pools in 1999, Ultimate Pools has strived to be one of the best pool builders in Southeast Texas. It seems that work is getting recognized online. Two online business ratings companies, The Prime Buyer’s Report and Nextdoor.com, have rated Ultimate Pools among their top 10 pool builders in the Magnolia area and greater Montgomery County.

They’ve come to these conclusions using different methodologies. While Nextdoor.com relies on direct online reviews from customers, The Prime Buyer’s Report utilizes phone-call surveys, along with research into licensing and business practices. Their methodology is outlined here. We appreciate both companies for their approaches and for recognizing the work and effort that is the bedrock of our business.

Don’t take our word for it, though. Here are the links to the Prime Buyer’s Report and Nextdoor best pool builders lists for Magnolia, The Woodlands, Conroe, Montgomery County and Southeast Texas.
