2023 HW Vanguard: Chris Sears

Chris Sears

Through his visionary leadership, Chris Sears, president of JPAR  Real Estate, has built the largest and fastest-growing franchise in the network, empowering over 500 agents to succeed in the competitive Houston area. With a commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion, philanthropy and mentorship, Sears has transformed his organization and positively impacted the housing economy. In the last 12 months, Sears spearheaded the development of a program to foster homeownership in Harris County through a community land trust program. This initiative has provided more opportunities for individuals and families to become homeowners, thus positively impacting the local community and contributing to the growth of the housing economy. Sears has actively given back to the community through his volunteer work. He has been associated with several charitable organizations, including the Housing Furniture Bank, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Habitat for Humanity. His commitment to addressing food insecurity is evident through the “Every Transaction” initiative, where every closed deal results in the donation of 100 meals to the Houston Food Bank.

Over the past year, this initiative has provided an astounding 50,000 meals to those in need, showcasing his dedication to making a positive impact beyond the real estate industry. Sears successfully brought together leaders from organizations such as NAHREP, AAREA, YRD, HIREBA and the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance to collaborate on best practices designed by Sears himself for the first time in 70 years. These efforts have helped these organizations succeed in their core missions through more efficient approaches and raising funds for their respective causes. His dedication to fostering diversity and inclusion in the real estate sector is commendable and will continue to impact the industry.
