Searching for a skilled tile setter in Houston

As the title says, I'm in the market to find a professional tile setter. We've been living on exposed concrete slab for years! Yuck!

The job is in the livingroom of a 1970s home on the first floor. We plan to use rectified porcelain woodlook tile with the smallest groutlines possible. That is far beyond my skill (don't look at my diy hackjob of a kitchen) and it is ultimately the reason I want to pay a professional. The floor isn't perfectly level, and I know that wreaks havoc on large format tiles - but I don't know if it is out-of-whack enough to need 51 sacks of self leveling compound.

If any of you guys are in Houston, feel free to give me a shout!

[My apologies to the moderator that will probably move this post to another forum.]

Floor doesn’t need to be level, just flat.

Grout joint width will be in part determined by consistency of tile size.
