"It's hard to express how pleased we are with our pool area and the pool itself, we started out with some magazine pictures and a rough drawing and you turned our back yard into something more than we could have ever expected.
Being a contractor myself, your timeliness and workmanship were beyond anything I've ever seen from any trade. You completed segments when you said you would, for the price you quoted.
We were also impressed with your willingness to give us several options and pricing for different parts of this very complicated back yard/ pool area. We were able to go over the information and make a decision without feeling rushed or pressured.
The most outstanding aspect of your company came after the job was done and you were paid in full, you came back out several times to make adjustments and actually change out equipment that wasn't performing to the way you expected. We now have better equipment, at no cost to me, without us even asking for it.
We would and already have recommended you to anyone looking for an outstanding pool company."

"Words cannot express the degree of appreciation my family and I have for your beautiful work you and your crew performed in our backyard. We created a disaster with our former contractor and every person we came into contact with your arrival was invariably professional, qualified and diligent. You saved our home as well as our social lives and we would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone interested in a pool and/ or backyard make-over.

"Our society today is quick to point the finger and notice errors of hard work and seldom acknowledge excellent work one does. I would like to take this time and thank Mountain View Pools and Barry Hall personally for the superb job on my homes new pool. Together with your planning I feel that the designs outcome is near perfect. Every time I look outside tot he rear yard and see my wife and kids enjoying the pool, it makes me appreciate MVP (Mountain View Pools) that much more. I would like to thank MVP for their craftsmanship, their referrals for servicing the pool, their advise and assistance on every aspect from the demolition of the pool to the completion and maintenance. I would also thank thank MVP for their continued involvement in answering my questions and concerns and guaranteeing their work in it's entirety. The fact that the pool basically maintains it's self due to the proper equipment recommended and installed by MVP is a lifesaver and allows me to enjoy the pool with my family versus spending time maintaining the pool manually. In close, I urge and welcome everyone to consider hiring MVP to call me if they have any further questions regarding MVP. As an owner of a company myself, I can honestly say that MVP is truly a company of integrity that can be trusted. I will definitely treat my friends and family and refer them to MVP."
"Charlotte and I have spent the last month enjoying our redesigned pool and our new deck. Iam writing now for both of us to thank you for your extraordinary effort and professionalism.
Knowing the pride that you take in your work, I want to explain at the outset why we are not thanking you for the quality of the finished product. It is true that we can not imagine having a better pool and deck. When you recommended to us, however, we were told that Mountain View is the best in the business. Therefore, since our beginning expectations were so high, it does not seem right to thank you for doing what we expected. I will say that the quality of your work is consistent with your reputation.
What then are we thanking you for if not simply the quality of your work? In the final analysis, we believe that the following four factors set you apart from other contractors:
- Your design is unsurpassed. As you probably discovered, Charlotte and I are very particular when it comes to our home. On our first day we met, you recommended that we build a pool which would "fit" with the overall design of our home and yard. You then spent several days obviously considering different design options (I could count of how many mornings you told me "I woke up in the middle of the night and thought about..."). The finished product elegantly combines your experience with our thoughts and preferences to give us a pool that is unique to our home.
- Frankly, we were surprised by the skill and conscientiousness exhibited by your employees and subcontractors. You can ascertain how skillful these people are simply by looking at the pool and deck. What impressed us almost as much as how polite they were and how clean they left the job site at the end of each day. The best compliment we can give you is that we never could tell from watching these people work whether or not you were on site.
- We were convinced that the primary reason for your success is, simply puy, your management style. You often told me that "communication" is the cornerstone of your business philosophy. To that end, your kept us apprised of the daily progress and you always seemed to have your arms around what was going on at our house. You should note that I stated above that the enumerated factors set you apart from other contractors (not just pool designers). We strongly believe that your management skills would let you be successful in any business and that you simply decided to focus on swimming pools.
- Finally, the fact that you finished the project on schedule and within the budget we set before you began is almost unheard of in any industry
Barry, we again want to thank you for all your efforts. The pool that you designed and built is now the centerpiece of our yard. You should feel free to distribute this letter to potential clients. More importantly, you should not hesitate to have people call us or look at our pool as they are trying to make decisions."

"I wanted to send you a letter regarding your proposal dated May 29, 2003. We do appreciate your efforts. Unfortunately, we went with a different vendor. I say unfortunately because you just completed the McAlpin's pool in Glendora. Jacquie and I are friends and had an opportunity to compare notes. Her experience and results were everything we were looking for in this project. Our experience with your competitor was extremely disappointing and challenging.
The McAlpin's are very pleased with your organization. Indirectly, you will receive recommendations because each of our experiences has already been shared with many. Because our experience was so awful, I have already made recommendations to others to pursue doing business with Mountain View Pools.
Again, I appreciate you follow through and encourage your consistency in service and expertise. It is what counts."
"It's been approximately three weeks since our pool was plastered and filled; we are enjoying the site of our new pool immensely both in the daytime and at night with the lights on.
When we first moved into out home almost two years ago, my attempts at gathering information and seeking out potential pool contractors was a bit discouraging. We did not know whom we could trust and we were very inexperienced in the area of pool remodels. One day after speaking with out pool man Tim Gorski, Mountain View Pools and Spa was mentioned and I decided to give you a call.
I was very pleased with our first conversation. It seemed as though you were not hurried and were more than willing to spend the time with me, answering all my questions. In addition, I was happy to hear that you were working with a good landscape designer, Cynthia Kiktavi. After speaking with you and subsequently signing on with Cynthia as out landscape designer, we finally felt hopeful that our backyard could be made more functional and aesthetically pleasing. What could have been a very negative stressful experience turned out to be a very positive one.
First of all, your organizational skills and professionalism were quite impressive. You laid everything out step by step so we would know exactly what to expect and know what we were paying for. You were always accessible either by phone or in person and the communication was awesome. This quality definitely sets you apart from any other contractor we have ever worked with. We thoroughly appreciate that you made frequent visits to the project site and even met with us on several occasions to discus events going on or any changes being made. We also acknowledge that you paid special attention to our need for adequate drainage; this was a great concern for us.
A special thanks to Dean and Pedro; these men and their crews are obviously experienced and performed their jobs very completely. They were also polite and clean considering the circumstances. We feel confident that our pool not only looks better but will function much more efficiently as well. The surrounding deck now has ample drainage and is also very aesthetically pleasing.
Barry, your knowledge about pools is obvious, but we also feel you are an excellent businessman who exhibits professionalism and courtesy to his clients at all times. You should be the model to all people starting a business! We wish you the continued success; if ever you feel the need to show a potential client the work you have performed in our backyard, please do not hesitate to call us.

"I've been meaning to write you for the last month, but time has gotten away from me as I've been too busy swimming!
The pool remodel is sensational and I rave about your work to anyone who asks (and some who haven't asked). I tell them that Montain View Pools started the work the date the said they would and completed the work on the date they said they would. Listeners are awestruck with that concept. I also tell them that as a single parent, I learned many years ago to be very selective about the kind of people I allow on my property. To a person, the employees, subcontractors and referrals have been goos craftsman, hardworking, and polite.
I mean it truly when I say it has been a pleasure doing business with you."
"Thank you for restoring my faith in contractors. Your honesty, work ethic and integrity are ones fro the record book. Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime! Also, thank you for all of your help an support that went way beyond the scope of the work you were contracted for. You really helped me get through a very difficult period. God Bless!"

"I want to extend my deepest thanks to Mountain View Pools, specifically to all the gentlemen who worked on my project. They were all fantastic."
"Just a few words to say how pleased I was wight the recent job that was completed at my home in Pasadena last week.
Dean was a pleasure to work with. He led me through the whole process "gingerly" and answered my "7000" questions every day in a very patient fashion. I know he even took time from his vacation to pay special attention to the project.
To say in the least, I was not looking forward to the process of installing a sump pump on my property; especially with the much anticipated demolition of sidewalks and brick walkways and the process of coring through stucco walls and curbs.
However the excellent work done by you crew (headed by Ralph) made things much easier. The clean up was fabulous also; the crew was very meticulous in every move.
You should be proud of your team.
Please feel free to use me as a future reference for any prospective customers."
