The amount of people choosing to rent a home in the United States is rapidly growing, at a pace of more than 500,000 each year with no signs of a turnaround. Prominent Texas real estate developer Marcus Hiles anticipated this increased demand, and has catered his Estates brand to deliver premium properties to renters in the Lone Star State. “Renters are eager to embrace luxury living at affordable prices,” explains Hiles, Chairman and CEO of 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.” Situated just north of Dallas in Aubrey, The Estates 3Eighty offers one- to four-bedroom floor plans featuring soaring ceilings, expansive windows, chic granite countertops, and spacious living areas. Residents enjoy a dedicated Starbucks Wi-Fi café, a private off-leash dog park, and can work at one of the iMacs or PCs in the business center. “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.”
Embracing the idea that where one lives has a direct effect on health and well-being, Marcus Hiles’ Dallas developments provide a connected network of amenities that reinforce connections to both the community and surrounding environment. Parks, vineyards, schools, fitness centers, and day spas take homes beyond typical housing and into lifestyle living. Extensive maintenance by Marcus Hines Dallas developments on public and private parks, lakes, streams, and green space, creates engaged, connected neighborhoods with confidence and a sense of achievement. Marcus Hiles’ program which underwrites $13 million in tree planting initiatives adds beauty to neighborhoods, with the broader effect of reducing energy use and improving regional air quality. Discussing his dedication to respecting the environment as well as the resident, Hiles says, “Our bold goal is to lessen carbon emissions by more than 500,000 metric tons over the next decade,” adding “In the process, we’ll deliver energy savings to our residents and create sustainable, livable communities.”
After more than three decades constructing lavish homes, Marcus Hiles Fort Worth entrepreneur has established and refined a winning plan for attracting residents and keeping them satisfied. Driven by a unique vision of offering luxury townhomes and apartments to working class Texans, Hiles founded Western Rim Property Services to provide renters with a desirable, exclusive lifestyle—and at an exceptional value. Since 1990, when he first saw an opportunity to improve the Dallas housing market by fulfilling an overlooked demand for upmarket rentals, he has been firmly dedicated to his mission: build communities with signature conveniences, chic interiors and prime locations in top-rated school districts with breathtaking views and a proximity to world-class dining, shopping and entertainment.
