Eminent Dallas property developer Marcus Hiles knows what renters want when choosing a new home. Yet one important feature probably remains off of most people’s checklists of must-have amenities: walking trails. Hiles advises apartment hunters to be on the lookout for a clear presence of recreational pathways throughout the site of the unit. As the Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, a company that has designed and currently manages more than 15,000 rentals in cities across Texas, Hiles knows personally about the many benefits multi-use walkways hold for residents.
As CEO of Western Rim Property Services, a regional developer specializing in luxury rental communities, Marcus Hiles understands that the Texas Association of Realtors’ report will help him to understand local markets and their needs. “At Western Rim, we are constantly monitoring industry temperature and momentum to understand what our customers need most,” Hiles discussed. “The Association’s recent findings offer invaluable insight to our team regarding the current status of regional property sales. Most importantly, it proves that the state’s overall real estate vertical is thriving. It’s an exciting time to live in Texas.”
Environmental advocacy is key to the fundamentals of famous Texas property developer Marcus Hiles.“Making neighborhoods that perform in harmony with the ecosystem and lower carbon impact is truly my commitment,” he notes. Hiles, who is Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, has translated his viewpoint into activity in around 15,000 upscale rental townhomes and apartments in the Lone Star State. An important part of his eco-friendly building methods is installing devices labeled by the the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as ENERGY STAR. Since the program’s introduction in 1992, Americans’ ENERGY STAR usage has lowered carbon emissions by 283.2 million metric tons. With the typical Texan spending $1,650 annually in electrical bills and another $400 annually for natural gas, power efficient devices mean savings as high as 50 percent.
