I do not typically write reviews, but I absolutely have to rave about my experience with Jerry Johnson and California Trademark Pools. When we decided to put in a pool, I met with various popular/highly rated pool companies, and while the designs and insight were wonderful, Jerry set himself apart with his genuine, honest, personal demeanor.
Jerry listened to what we wanted, offered his professional opinion, and never tried to up-sell us. When he left, I felt confident he heard our needs/desires and that we would get exactly what we asked for. From the day we signed on, Jerry did everything in his power to ensure questions were answered and any concerns were alleviated. I knew I could call or text him at any time, and he would respond within minutes with a helpful answer and positive attitude (despite the fact I'm more than a little needy when it comes to large scale projects).
Even when we decided to change the size and shape of our Cabo shelf two days before we were scheduled for gunite, Jerry didn't skip a beat. His response was basically "whatever you want", and when I was unsure about what the new dimensions should be, Jerry came to the house on Saturday evening (on his way to dinner with his wife) to set my mind at ease. He was here before sunrise to redo the rebar, and we were able to proceed on schedule. Jerry went out of his way on more than one occasion to ensure our hopes and expectations were met. Putting in a pool can be a stressful experience with countless decisions and variables, but there was never any doubt Jerry always had our best interests at heart. His honesty and professionalism are truly unmatched, especially in this day and age.
On top of that, we began our project in the middle of the wettest winter on record, and somehow Jerry was able to complete the job in six weeks, and we could not happier with the finished product! Jerry's motto is "Quality Construction with Personal Attention", and he definitely lives up to his word. I am often skeptical when dealing with businesses, but from the day we began, I knew Jerry would be there every step of the way and that I could trust him with every decision; having that kind of working relationship is priceless.
If you are considering putting in a pool, you will not find anyone better than Jerry and California Trademark Pools!
Bob and I want to thank you for your outstanding work on our pool and patio. Starting with a bare 2.5 acre yard, it’s a challenge to plan and execute a pool and patio of this scale, and we are very pleased with the outcome of ours.
First From the very beginning of construction, the plans were carried out as outlined by your design, in a timely manner and with the finest of workmanship. The cost of our project was most reasonable compared to the other bidders on our job. We are thrilled with the results and can’t thank you enough.
We invite you to bring any future potential customers to see our pool and patio as an example of your quality of workmanship.
We were very pleased with our experience with Jerry and California TRADEMARK Pools for the design and build of our in-ground swimming pool and spa. From the onset, Jerry was responsive and professional, and willing to go the extra mile to meet our needs. His crew is knowledgeable, hard-working, courteous and professional. We are very pleased with the service we were provided, and the final product we received. We’d recommend California TRADEMARK Pools and Jerry Johnson Construction, Inc. without hesitation for any swimming pool project, or other home improvement project.
We had our pool built by Jerry Johnson earlier this year in 2007. We are thrilled with how it turned out. Jerry was very easy to work with, very professional, and offered excellent advice and guidance at every step of construction.
He was very accommodating when we requested modifications to his original design but did not hesitate to point out any problems when we asked for something that he knew might not work or might not look right.
We are very satisfied with the results.
We choose Jerry because he is a small, local company and did not use salespeople. When you talk to Jerry, you talk to the boss. His workers were efficient and thorough. They were also respectful of our property and privacy during construction.
We would not hesitate to recommend Jerry to friends and family to build a swimming pool. He would be the first we would have bid on any other type of construction that we may need in the future.
I spoke with many different contractors and received many estimates. I went with Jerry because he was very easy to work with and was very fair and honest. I initially hired him just for my pool, but after working with him, we ended up landscaping my entire 1 acre yard. I honestly felt like I was working with a friend, rather than just a contractor. My backyard came out just fabulous and I couldn’t be more pleased. Feel free to come and look at the wonderful job Jerry and his crew did for me.
In Fall 2009 my wife and I decided to complete our backyard which included a pool, our first ever! We knew it was going to be a challenging project as we lived on a hill and had a shallow, sloping yard that we wanted to reengineer in order to maximize our pool size and extend our usable space.
We researched and talked to quite a few pool contractors; ultimately we selected Jerry Johnson of California Trademark Pools for one key reason; after meeting with him several times and talking through our project, we trusted him to do a great job on our project for a reasonable price.
Our project is now complete and we’re really pleased with how it turned out. I’d strongly recommend Jerry for a number of reasons.
First, Jerry took “hands-on” personal ownership for our project. He was here nearly every day working on the project and ensuring it was done the way he wanted. He’s got tremendous expertise and that gave us a lot of confidence as the project moved along.
Second, Jerry is really easy to work with. We changed our minds several times on design issues as we moved along and Jerry gracefully accommodated all our requests. In one case, he even lowered (an already built!) overhead gazebo that I felt was too high. No big deal. We ended up getting the back yard we wanted and he was flexible enough to help us figure it out along the way.
Third, Jerry really looked out for us throughout the project. He tactfully suggested alternatives if we were thinking about something that wasn’t going to quite look right or make sense, he helped us figure out ways to manage our costs, he honored his original pricing quote even when some extra engineering and structural expenses were necessary. In a nutshell, he was a real partner with us.
Jerry and his team did a great job for us and we’re really happy with our new back yard and pool.”
