Keith Zars Honored with Becky Oliver Lifetime Achievement Award

The Greater San Antonio Builders Association hosted their annual Summit Awards on Thursday, December 3rd, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.

The Summit Awards, which started in 1985, is one of the biggest events of the year, recognizing the finest in the home-building industry here in San Antonio. The event marks the Association’s highest award program and features more than 100 categories that include promotional, product, and personal achievement awards.

This year, Keith Zars Pools experienced a very special night of recognition and acknowledgment for the company’s contribution to the San Antonio community. The evening held an unexpected surprise as Keith Zars, founder and president of Keith Zars Pools, was honored with the Becky Oliver Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is named for GSABA’s long-time Executive Officer, Becky Oliver, who served 14 years as Executive Vice President of the Greater San Antonio Builders Association.

This prestigious award recognizes an Associate member who has dedicated a lifetime of service to the industry and GSABA. Keith Zars was deeply honored and humbled for the recognition of his life’s work and community service. Keith Zars Pools, which began in 1985, continues to be a driving example of excellence in the pool industry, having consistently been ranked by Pool and Spa News as one of the top 3 pool companies nationwide for several years. Keith Zars Pools has also received numerous awards for their stunning pool designs receiving national and international recognition.  “I was truly humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude by the honor. I need to thank my family, friends, GSABA and all the amazing employees for their belief in this company and the vision that drives it,” says Keith Zars.

The evening continued with accolades for the custom, luxury pool company as Keith Zars Pools was once again honored to receive the 2020 Associate Grand Award for the highest number of winning entries. The luxury pool builder was thrilled to be the recipient of four awards in the following entry categories:

Best Poolscape
Best Website
Best Showroom
Best Social Media

“Excellence is our standard,” says Keith Zars, president and owner of Keith Zars Pools, “and these awards inspire us to continue to endeavor to be the best that we can be in a very competitive industry! I am so proud to see the efforts of our team recognized at such an important event.”

Although awards bring credibility and exposure to the number one luxury pool builder in San Antonio, Texas, the company is proudest of the business they receive from satisfied customers. This is an important reason Keith Zars Pools values its partnership with the Greater San Antonio Builders Association and the tremendous opportunities this not-for-profit trade organization creates for its members to have within the community.

By hosting events throughout the year, the Greater San Antonio Builders Association highlights the best of the building industry and their affiliates, offering prospective buyers a wonderful assortment of choices meant to inspire, educate and facilitate the home-buying process.

  • Coping/Decking: 
    • Keith Zars Pools delivers a wide range of coping and decking edges and finishes, and our stone masons will construct your coping and decking to flawlessly fit your pool. 
    • For a more contemporary look, consider clean, square-cut edges paired with a stunning array of elegant cut stone, travertine and porcelain finishes. 
    • For a more traditional look, consider bullnose-edge coping and freeform deck shapes coupled with the soothing textures and colors of flagstone, salt and cool coat finishes.

Water & Fire Feature Additions

The addition of water and fire features can enhance your entire outdoor experience in a variety of ways. The soothing sights and sounds of a new waterfall or water feature, or the warmth and light created by a fire bowl or fire pit, can create striking visuals, new focal points, and add a heightened level of symmetry, originality, functionality and luxury to your overall pool design.

  • Water Features: 
    • Adding water features, such as delightful bubblers on an existing sun shelf, lively deck jets around your pool’s coping, and stunning sheer descents or scuppers that allow water to gently cascade down a raised pool wall, provides gorgeous highlights and accents to your pool that you can marvel at.  
    • Waterfalls create a cozy, perennial and soothing look and feel to any pool. The beautifully colored stones and gently flowing water can bring balance and harmony to your outdoor space and transform your entire outdoor experience.
  • Fire Features: 
    • Fire bowls, fire pits and custom fire accent features give way to a spectacular display of color, vibrancy and light that allow you and your family to enjoy your pool day and night. Discover how the elements of water and fire combined create a magnetic and harmonious balance and produce a gorgeous chemistry that’s both subtle and bold.

Decking & Spa Additions

  • Added Deck Space
    • Expanding the amount of decking in your back yard can allow for more space to entertain and relax poolside. Imagine a new patio addition around your pool to place a set of comfortable lounging chairs, a stylish outdoor dining spot, a stunning outdoor kitchen area or a striking fire pit and seating area. 
  • Add a Spa
    • Adding a spa to your existing pool is a great way to bring a new level of functionality and enjoyment to your personal outdoor retreat. Spas offer a therapeutic experience and, with vast array of styles and custom features from which to choose, your new spa will not only relax and invigorate you, it can become the focal point of your pool and serve as an energetic and complementary addition to its entire design. 

New Pool Amenities

  • Are you looking to find new ways to spend time in your pool? Adding a swim-up bar, a sun shelf, and umbrella anchors can boost your experience and bring a new level of luxury to your outdoor space. 
  • For added recreational fun, consider incorporating a water slide, a diving board, a basketball goal or a volleyball anchor. 
  • You can even add or relocate steps and seat benches in your pool, or have new LED lights installed to broaden your pools functionality and visual appeal.

What Happy Customers Are Saying About Us

We had a cocktail pool installed by KZP and the pool turned out fantastic. We received quotes from two other pool companies, and while KZP was the higher, they were also the only ones willing to work with our custom design. They use top-quality materials and offered a huge selection of pool fittings/finishes. Kent Ely in sales was easy to work with and was pressure-free at making the sale. Bill Sturgis was our site supervisor (we didn't see him very often but was very responsive to email, phone calls, or text messages). Elizabeth, in the design department, was fun to work with while we picked color scheme and tiles. They had a very small space to work with and they did what they had to do to make it work. I would recommend KZP to anyone.

We are very excited to start using our Kieth Zar's pool this summer. They turned our backyard into our dream. Tony came out and answered all our questions on the initial visit, and measured everything in our backyard, including trees. He returned the next week with an outstanding design on paper and a 3-D model on the computer that made it come to life. We had some delays and struggles with HOA, but knowing that Zar's was in our corner and doing all the work to get everything approved, we had no worries. Work was completed on schedule, even with weather delays. John and Toby walked us through and answered all our questions along the whole build process. We also know we can still call with any more questions we have along the way, even though the job is complete.
