Our story begins back when the recession hit back in 2001. I, John Chavez, was 29 years old and was a professional auto mechanic. When the recession hit, it affected my family so much that at times, the paychecks that I received from the mechanic shop i worked at looked more like donation rather than a full paycheck that could support a family of 5 at the time.
I felt like I needed to provide for my lovely wife, Elizabeth , and my three children. I eventually made the decision with my family to get into the pool industry, where I had worked previously in my younger years. I always started in entry-level positions such as a pool cleaning tech, but often found favor from my managers and got promoted pretty quickly. I eventually started learning the business of pool repairs and renovations. Even in those positions, I was always promoted into higher management positions where I led and trained employees that worked in different roles.
Sadly, more often than not, I felt that there was a huge disconnect between proper customer service and pool service quality. I was unhappy with the way customers or employees got treated in the pool industry. While working full time at a pool company, I felt compelled to make a decision along with my family to study and become a professional licensed pool contractor.
It took every effort from the entire family, many sleepless nights, and many failures before I finally was able to get pass my certification back in June, 2014. After almost two decades of pool experience, Sublime pools & spa was born. We are now a fully licensed and Insured pool service & repair company. Our core values—Faith, Integrity, Quality & Reliability—represent who we are as a family and how we want to do business. We are 100% sure that treating others the way you want to be treated will change the industry and the world, one family at a time. Our family is on a quest to become the best service, repair and renovation pool company in all of South Florida.
In our spare time, you will often find the family serving at church, playing basketball at the parks, or enjoying a good, healthy, and organic meal with family and friends.
