Welcome to the Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce (GHACC) is a member-focused organization through which members can effectively develop their business and themselves. Since its founding in 1988, the hallmark of the Chamber has, and continues to be: “People do business with people they know, like, and trust.” Relationships developed in the Chamber become part of one’s business infrastructure. New friends can be found in the Chamber and some of those friendships will last a lifetime. Members can learn how to grow their markets, supply their business, mentor associates or even find a special mentor. GHACC works diligently to provide benefit to all members, be they new, or long-term.

This growing Chamber provides a forum into which its members’ businesses can fit together in an atmosphere of mutual benefit. Active participation provides multiple benefits including access to the entrepreneurs and management of business and organizations with differing viewpoints and methods that work. An abundance of activities provide networking occasions to create new business opportunities, obtain business referrals, join committees, have fun and enjoy a camaraderie unique to Heights Chamber members.

Just as the “Heights” is known for its uniqueness and historical Houston significance, the GHACC blends businesses, promotes “Buy Local First,” and has often been described as a “not so well kept secret for successfully serving its members.”

Member Spotlight

Jess McCreary

Broker Owner with HTX-Living

After working as a licensed assistant for a top producer at Martha Turner Properties, Jessica built strong relationships with probate and estate attorneys, certified public accountants and financial advisers by billing herself as the “Queen of Probate.” Using her estate listings experience to become a Top Producing Agent and Broker Associate with Keller Williams Memorial, Jessica was able to quickly establish credibility with real estate investors, which ultimately became the driving force behind her decision to first start her own property management firm and eventually her own brokerage.

McCreary’s strong network with Houston Realtors aids in her ability to not only recruit quality agents, but also to know what properties will be coming on the market, which is essential with the low-inventory market we find ourselves in at the moment. As an active member of the Junior League, the Wine Garden Committee of the Houston Rodeo and the Daughters of the American Revolution, Jess understands that networking in this industry is key, which is why she works so hard to stand out from the pack with her concept of building a truly boutique residential real estate firm that embodies the hard-work and spirit of this great city of ours.

Here’s why being on a Chamber Committee expands my business connections.

“Joining other Chamber members on a committee establishes recognition of me for my business and service capabilities. With an opportunity to provide new ideas or input in the planning and staging of Chamber events, I have the occasion to meet and interact with fellow members in different fields. Working together provides an arena for me to expand my skills in areas where I may not have been involved before. Equally important is learning how vital collaboration can be to my future success. The Chamber offers a variety of committees, so there are many looking to grow and add new talent.”

Here’s why I Sponsor a Chamber Event!

“One of the benefits of being a part of the Heights Chamber is the opportunity to promote and highlight my business in a cost-effective way to fellow members. I have found that sponsoring an event brings with it an additional emphasis on my business and recognition of me and my services. I know that members do business with fellow members and getting them to know me and my capabilities better, leads to future business and referrals.”
