Caring for the environment is something that sets Marcus Hiles apart from other Texas real estate agents and developers. The awareness Hiles shows when building communities is astonishing. Each of his communities is designed to be eco-friendly and more than 15,000 rental properties prove that the Hiles’ philosophy is based on his philanthropic intentions. Each home Hiles represents and manages has products with the ENERGY STAR label on them because the savings these products offer are more than 50 percent and the merit they bring to the environment is priceless.

Unlike earlier generations pursuing the American Dream of owning a home, the new American vision is a lifestyle that offers less maintenance, more freedom to travel; community engagement with less seclusion – but more exclusivity; top of the line amenities with a smaller, greener footprint; and urban convenience with a picturesque view. Marcus Hiles, Dallas area developer, is the Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services and is responding to the current national boom in demand for luxury apartments by offering affordable, environmentally responsible, and socially friendly high-end communities to accommodate the modern priorities of aging baby boomers and their children, known as echo-boomers.
Renowned real estate developer Marcus Hiles places environmental stewardship at the central of his development philosophy. “Creating communities that work in harmony with nature and lessen humanity’s carbon footprint is a responsibility I embrace,” he says. As Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, Hiles has put his philosophy into action in the over 15,000 upscale rental townhomes and apartments his company has developed in the Lone Star State. One big step in his eco-friendly development practices is installing appliances certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as ENERGY STAR. Americans’ ENERGY STAR usage has reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 283.2 million metric tons since the program was launched in 1992. Because the average resident in Texas pays $1,650 per year in electrical bills and an additional $400 for natural gas, energy efficient appliances can translate into energy savings of up to 50 percent.
