The U.S. exceeded $166 billion in capital investments last year, a ten percent jump from 2014. Nearly a third of the proceeds came from the state of Texas. Dallas based real estate investor Marcus Hiles believes his state has not only proven its potential for sustained long-term economic growth, but has become vital to the success of the American economy. Hiles, the Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Properties, has spent over thirty years studying market tendencies in the pursuit of making profitable, strategic property acquisitions.
Marcus Hiles has observed that architectural trends are extending outdoors and towards designs that boast low maintenance and high style. The demand for open-air spaces that are sustainable and reduce costs is being satisfied through eco-friendly, conservation-minded processes like rainwater/graywater harvesting and permeable pavement. Rainwater harvesting utilizes a rooftop collection system that redirects moisture from the air into well storage to be treated and repurposed on-site. Graywater takes previously used domestic wastewater and recirculates it around the home and property for rest rooms and other non-drinking purposes, cutting the need for sterilization and fresh water. The seemingly new idea of permeable paving actually dates back thousands of years to the time when people first built roads by putting stones in beds over the ground. The process allows rain to pass through small openings between four layers of filtration (paving material, gravel, fabric, sand) before being absorbed by the dirt below. This lowers runoff and pollution, manages the flow of storm water running into gutters and drains, maintains local groundwater supplies, and can even provide a skid resistant surface for walkways, patios and driveways. There are many attractive designs and looks for permeable pavement, often incorporating crushed stone, brick, and recycled concrete.
Water, and especially heated water, is a significant source of emissions in most first-world countries, with over ten gallons used per person per day. Marcus Hiles encourages residents to take shorter, cooler showers, cut back on baths, and turn off the faucet when brushing or shaving as simple conservation techniques for those interested in cutting emissions. By installing low flow showerheads and toilets, residents can make an even more serious impact.
Marcus Hiles practices his competence in analyzing the impact that different building features and materials have on energy loss when planning and building. He uses window placement plans that embellish a housing development’s information and materials — and run-down fluctuating Texas temperatures — to restrain heat gain in the summer and promote heat retention in the winter. Through the placing of windows with the proper solar coefficient, frames that prevent air leakage, and shading devices, the loss of a home’s heated air and cooled air is decreased. This produces fewer carbon emissions and greater cost savings. For the purpose of alleviating the transfer of heat from the sun through the roof and into air ducts, Hiles harnesses the power of radiant roof panels to heave summer heat away from the home, thus lowering cooling costs by five to ten percent. He creates higher value by installing air conditioning systems that have a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) that exceeds government standards. This charts in continuous reductions in carbon and generates over $420,000 in energy savings for those living in Western Rim Property Services communities.
A sense of privacy is one of the greatest luxuries of the 21st century. In each of the quality rental homes, townhomes, and apartments developed by Marcus Hiles and Western Rim Property Services, residents experience the solace of a quiet living environment. Among the multitude of high-end conveniences Hiles offers in his communities, one of the most sought-after amenities cannot be seen out in the open, yet its effects are unmistakable: the peace of knowing your home is treated with full depth cellulose sound insulation.
Promising future is what CEO of Western Rim Property Services envisions for the biggest state of the north American country, especially on the macroeconomic department. Head of property development and environmental enthusiast based in Texas, Marcus Hiles recently responded to studies of an upswing in Fort Worth and Houston home purchasing during 2016’s first quarter. As head of a state firm specializing in chic urban living, Hiles acknowledges that Texas Association of Realtors’ discoveries can help him to serve local clients.

Marcus Hiles: The Face of Success
Of course, behind every successful company is a successful entrepreneur. As for Western Rim Properties, this man is known as Marcus Hiles. Marcus started his vision to create a real estate company when he was only an undergraduate in Rice University, where he took up a bachelor’s degree in business management. He then took up a master’s degree in Pepperdine University. By the time he was 28, he had already established Western Rim Properties.
Western Rim Properties and its Struggles
Western Rim Properties is now one of the most successful real estate companies there are. But of course, before Western Rim Properties reached such great heights, some obstacles had to be encountered. Nowadays, Marcus Hiles is one of the wealthiest men in Texas but this hasn’t always been the case. Marcus was born into a middle class family. Unlike other businessmen, he didn’t inherit any huge amounts of fortune and therefore had to build his own company from sums of his own savings.
Western Rim Properties also started small. At first, Marcus only had a few men to do the job and they had to hire services to do some of the dirty work for them. But Marcus realized that if they do the services themselves instead of hiring other people, the company would be able to save up on money. That is why Western Rim Properties is able to provide luxurious homes at affordable prices.
During the early years of Western Rim Properties, Marcus also had to make some sacrifices in order to keep the company running. These sacrifices include sleeping on the floor of his friend’s apartment just so he could pay his staff on time. Marcus really makes other people his priority. It has always been his goal to put other peoples’ wants and needs before his, especially his clients’. With the kind of attitude Marcus has towards his business, it is no wonder his company is such a success.
