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

Alfredo and Monica Cavazos

Real Estate Brokers

Alfredo Cavazos is a native Houstonian of over 45 years, born and raised in the greater Houston area. He has been married to his wife Monica almost 25 years with a family of two, Samuel at 21 and Angelica at 18. After studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Houston, he worked in the Oil & Gas industry for 20 years. In 2017, he transitioned into the Real Estate Industry with his lovely wife Monica.

Today, they both own Cavazos Realty International located at 4721 North Main minutes from downtown Houston. His vision for the business is to provide efficient services to all of the clients they support. Together with his business partner, Monica, they manage 6 agents and continue to train and develop them to also provide the same customer service and support to their clients.

Monica Cavazos was born in Mexico and moved to the states at 5years old. She learned a new language and later learned the many opportunities to succeed in this new country. Monica raised two beautiful children, Samuel and Angelica, alongside with her loving husband, Alfredo. Both married at an early age and were determined to finish their mechanical engineering and nursing degrees no matter the struggles. In addition, in 2006, Monica decided to step back from the medical field and pursue a real estate degree while staying home with the children due to Samuel being a 27 week premature baby.

During this time, Monica began her career as a Realtor with Keller Williams Northeast and then a couple small other brokerages until 2020 when they opened Cavazos Realty International. Today, Monica focuses on their clients needs and is also a part-time pediatric nurse at a local children’s hospital. Monica states “ I can never give up nursing. I absolutely love to take care of our, agents, clients and my little patients. My passion is to advocate for them.” Monica provides children’s story time during the summer for local kids and enjoys it. She holds her real estate degree from San Jacinto College and her nursing degree from University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. She is currently the chair for the San Jacinto College Real Estate Department advisory committee. Monica likes to spend time in the Texas hill country with her family and enjoy God’s marvelous creation, nature on her spare time.

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.”
