Colonial towns such as Jamestown, Philadelphia and Charleston have been fashioning the state of America since the 16th century. Marcus Hiles, CEO of Western Rim Property Services, explains that planned communities are not only valuable to occupants, but also important to the country’s real estate market. The Dallas real estate investor has been making noteworthy properties for over three decades and has observed directly the upgrading impact they’ve had on Texas’ residents and economic scenario.
Developments in architecture have moved to hot outdoor designs that are supposed to be low maintenance and stylish. Marcus Hiles has seen the increase in demand for open-air spaces that are sustainable and also reduce expenses. Ecological, conservation-minded choices such as rainwater/graywater harvesting and permeable pavement are popular methods. Using a rooftop collection structure, rainwater harvesting sends moisture from the air for storage in a well to be treated and reused on-site; graywater takes home wastewater used before and sends it for rest rooms and non-drinking purposes, reducing the need for fresh water and dropping the amount of purification. A special idea for environmentally minded construction, permeable paving, actually goes back thousands of years to the time when people first made roads by putting stones in beds over the ground. The technique allows the rain to pass through small openings between four layers of filtration (paving material, gravel, fabric, sand) before becoming absorbed by the earth below. Its advantages include lowering runoff and pollution, controlling the flow of storm water to gutters and drains, replenishing local groundwater supplies and providing a skid resistant surface for walkways, patios and driveways; their many attractive patterns often incorporate crushed stone, brick, and recycled concrete.
Marcus Hiles, Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, disclosed recently the several measures his firm takes to provide environmentally friendly and energy-efficient homes, and the methods tenants can follow at home to further this. The housing sector is the leading contributor in a person’s carbon footprint very often because of the needless use in gas, electricity, water and waste disposal. In fact, for a regular US citizen, heating and cooling adds up to almost 50% of carbon emissions. To lower these, each Western Rim property uses three basic methods: effective insulation, Energy Star rated systems, and programmable thermostats with modern options to set different temperatures for certain rooms. Extra weather stripping and the blocking of draughts will definitely offer a higher protection from the elements, and raise a home’s ability to maintain a steady climate. Using the thermostat to segregate rooms into warmer or cooler zones and avoiding usage when away will lead to higher savings.
There was a certain gap in the market for luxury rentals at affordable prices in Dallas before exemplary real estate developer Marcus Hiles entered the market. Almost three decades ago, Texas was experiencing a peak in housing sales, leaving keen homebuyers with limited inventory to choose from. The existing options were selling at over-inflated prices. Hiles saw this chasm as an opportunity to meet an unrecognized demand, and the outcome was the founding of Western Rim Property Services in 1990. He began building homes that were needed to improve the Dallas rental market, but his exclusive idea of offering luxury apartments, homes and townhomes to working class people in Texas transformed the Dallas landscape for the better single-handedly.
Four simple tricks but tricks which can mean a lot when applied are presented by the CEO of Western Rim Properties and a man who has been in the real estate business for over three decades – Marcus Hiles. When building or picking apartments, Hiles always follows his own advice and uses or seeks windows which have a solar heat gain coefficient ranging from 0.22 to 0.24. These kinds of windows are modern and prevent air and energy leakage thus lowering your electricity bills to a minimum.

The country is experiencing a massive growth in the number of renters, over 500,000 more each year, with no signs of abating. In the Lone Star State, real estate developer Marcus Hiles predicted the increased demand for upscale rentals, and delivers premium properties to renters in Texas with his Estates brand. “Renters are eager to embrace luxury living at affordable prices,” says Hiles, Chairman and CEO of Dallas’ Western Rim Property Services. “Our five Estates communities offer signature amenities designed to appeal to singles, couples, and families who have chosen the rental lifestyle.” For example, The Estates 3Eighty was built just north of Dallas in Aubrey and offers one- to four-bedroom apartment floor plans that feature raised ceilings, expansive windows, fancy granite countertops, and expansive living rooms. On-site is a Starbucks Wi-Fi café, private dog park, and full-service business center featuring iMacs and PCs. “Our intention was to create the best of both worlds,” Marcus Hiles recalls, “an exclusive lakeside escape that’s a stone’s throw away from vibrant nightlife and a thriving arts community.”
Everything is bigger in Texas, and the market for upscale renting is no exception. Marcus Hiles, Chairman and Founder of Western Rim Property Services, explains that virtually all new rental developments in the Lone Star State are upmarket, allowing unprecedented opportunities for tenants to pursue luxurious living. “An increasing number of singles, families, empty nesters, and retirees are finding contentment through renting,” he stated. “Across the U.S. the number of renters is anticipated to grow by a half million each year through 2023.”
Many homes are built throughout the country and there aren’t many innovative ideas or clear goals about the future of real estate. However, Marcus Hiles is planning on increasing the care for the environment while finding the best units in the United States for his customers. 2500 trees planted by Hiles each year will remove around 75 tons of carbon dioxide and make those units a healthier place to live. Not only that, but trees Hiles donated will become more and more productive as years go by and in ten years, those trees will remove 600 tons of carbon dioxide per year.

Sustainability, along with environmental stewardship and building a healthy lifestyle, continue to be important components of open green areas in any community. As a residential developers in the Dallas area, Marcus Hiles is honored to be able to contribute land for community parks and provide the much-needed areas for outdoor recreation spaces. Trees, plants and wildlife remain essential for life and allow families, couples and individuals a place for reflection. These spots can only grow through the generous work and dedication of people and businesses, including Hiles, devoted to eco-friendly design.
