Nick will be a critical LGBTQ voice on the Houston City Council
As a homeowner and small business owner in Houston, Nick Hellyar understands the challenges facing our neighborhoods – flooding, street repair, public safety, increasing density and traffic, and getting the most out of Houstonians’ taxpayer dollars.
Nick grew up in Houston, attending public schools including Lamar High School, where he was on the swim, tennis and academic decathlon teams. After attending the University of Houston, Nick got his first exposure to public service, working as a staff member for a Houston City Council Member and a member of the Texas Legislature. It was this work — attending civic club meetings, responding to resident requests and helping to deliver neighborhood level projects – that fostered his passion for constituent service and local government.
Nick now owns and operates a real estate business, The Hellyar Group. He focuses on buying and selling residential properties, rental placement, property management and investment. As a business owner, Nick must work within a budget, make payroll and maximize every dollar to be successful. He will bring that same sensibility to City Council.
Nick is a member of the Houston Association of Realtors and is a former Vice President and Board Member of the Houston GLBT Political Caucus.
