One of the greatest amenities of modern living is a sense of privacy. In all of the desirable rental homes, townhomes, and apartments developed by Western Rim Property Services, residents enjoy the serenity of a quiet living environment. Of the multitude of high-end conveniences offered within Marcus Hiles’ communities, there is one key element that cannot be seen out in the open, yet its effects are unmistakable: the comfort of knowing your home was treated with full depth cellulose sound insulation.
Estates neighborhoods are gated and feature urban-style all-elevator access to every apartment, along with perfectly kept outdoor and community spaces. Each community has a resort-style swimming pool with a tanning deck, on-demand concierge service, and a high-tech workout center. The brand’s richly appointed apartments and townhomes, combined with their resort-style amenities, are attracting an increasing number of Millennials, young families, empty nesters, and retirees choosing the laidback vibe of the long-term rental lifestyle over home ownership. “Our tenants appreciate the exclusivity that the Estates brand provides as well as the flexibility that goes hand in hand with renting,” Hiles explains. “Our mission is to continue to deliver luxurious retreats that our residents can call home.”
Marcus Hiles, who became the first person to meet the demand for affordable luxury apartments in 1990 with the founding of his business, Western Rim Property Services. The esteemed investor’s company now manages 15,000 state of the art residential developments. Hiles’ commitment to constructing meaningful communities at the heart of each of his endeavors helps ensure the health and well being of residents in all of his developments.
Having successfully placed a total of 30,000 trees in local communities over the last 10 years, Hiles has included the planting goal of 2,500 trees as part of Western Rim’s long-term objectives. “We have seen firsthand the impact our efforts have had, both aesthetically and environmentally,” he notes. “These initiatives are just the beginning. We purposely plant and donate parklands beyond any government development regulation because we know that our labor today will benefit the ecosystem for future decades. My goal is to continue increasing the tree canopy in all of our neighborhoods as well as create municipal parks, jogging trails, and reserves. Our commitment to proven ecological solutions grants our renters the optimal quality of life in a thriving community.”
As one of the most visible business and real estate development leaders in the Lone Star state, Marcus Hiles is particularly attentive to Texas’ track record regarding inviting new companies into the state. “Companies are relocating to Texas in order to take advantage of our business-friendly policies and stable workforce,” he notes. Even foreign investors are flocking to the state and employ more than a half million workers. As a result, both productivity and exports are soaring. In 2015, exports were valued at $251 billion, with a 93 percent growth over the previous decade in exports with free trade agreement partners. The state exported $45.4 billion worth of computers and electronics, $44.1 billion in oil and coal products, and $39.9 billion in chemicals. Its largest trading partner is Mexico, followed by Canada, China, Korea, and Brazil. Hiles states that, when contrasted with states like California, which lost over 1,500 businesses over the past eight years, Texas’ pro-growth stance primes it to usher in more companies, greater numbers of jobs, and increased exports in the years to come.
