The Talk of the Town Awards, presented by Talk of the Town News, Customer Care News magazine and Celebration Media U.S. (CMUS), honor companies and professionals that provide excellent customer service as reported by their customers through no-cost, user-review websites, blogs, social networks, business rating services, and other honors and accolades.

Backyard Retreats Pools and Spas provides custom-designed concrete pools and spas for the Charlotte, Tega Cay and Rock Hill communities. The company is locally owned and operated, and company founder, Stuart McCall, personally designs and builds each pool. McCall is on site every day installing and overseeing each project.

It is important to us that we provide our customers with a superior experience and our hope is that they will tell their friends about us.

"We only build 15 or 20 pools a year, so we can give all our customers the attention they deserve,” says McCall. “It is important to us that we provide our customers with a superior experience, and our hope is that they will tell their friends about us."

Backyard Retreats also handles more than just pools and spas. “We can create an oasis just a few steps away from your back door,” says McCall. These projects include outdoor kitchens, pool cabanas/pergolas, waterfalls, outdoor living spaces, fireplaces, retaining walls and landscaping.

Providing clients with a great experience is a top priority for McCall and his team. “Customer service means putting the homeowners’ needs first, bringing projects in on time and on budget,” he says. “We help our customers every step of the way to make good decisions about what they are buying. Many of our customers have never owned a pool before, and we take great care to help them understand the process and understand the dynamics of the finished product before the project even starts. A customer who knows what goes into the project before he signs on the bottom line is a customer who can be confident in the decision he has made to let us build the pool.”

McCall credits his company’s willingness to be there for the customer every step of the process for winning the Talk of the Town Award. “We are always calling to let the customer know what the schedule is, and if the schedule changes we call and let them know what’s going on,” he says. “Also, we are still available to customers long after the pool is built.”
