Our Story

Our story began in 1998 with a highly qualified accountant, soon to-be-mom; and some friends desperately needing expert advice with their personal and company accounting matters.

Houston & Associates was nominated as a finalist in the 702 Small Business awards in 2012, for making a difference in their community.

Two decades later, Houston & Associates has earned a reputation of excellence and is the trusted, professional Financial and Accounting services provider of choice to over 300 clients. A small, dynamic business that continues to grow, all through word of mouth.
