Before visionary developer Marcus Hiles arrival on the Dallas real estate scene, there was a definite gap in the market for luxury rentals at affordable prices. Almost three decades ago, Texas was experiencing a surge in housing sales, leaving hopeful homebuyers with little inventory to choose from—and those that were moving were selling at over-inflated values. Hiles saw the disparity as an opportunity to fulfill an unrecognized demand, and the result was the founding of Western Rim Property Services in 1990. He began building the units necessary to improve the Dallas rental market, but his unique concept of offering luxury homes, townhomes and apartments to working class Texans single-handedly transformed the Dallas landscape.
Marcus Hiles’ Western Rim has created breathtaking communities in the northern suburbs of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex that have given apartment seekers an abundance of upmarket choices. Located in areas that take full advantage of Texas’s captivating countryside, the Estates, Towers and Mansions brand properties are all within short driving distance of downtown Dallas, providing the best of both city and suburban life. Built with the priority of delivering effortless comfort, the Estates 3Eighty in Aubrey contains its own park, trail and pet-friendly, off-leash dog run. All of the one- to four- bedroom apartments are expanded with outdoor living spaces and reserved covered parking. Residents enjoy access to a resort-style swimming pool, high-tech fitness center and private trainer. For the ultimate convenience, there’s even a Starbucks café located on the property.
Because of Hiles’ singular concept, Dallas and its surrounding areas have become more tastefully designed, and within the reach of an ever-growing number of people. The upscale atmosphere becomes immediately apparent to newcomers when they arrive at The Towers By The Park in Frisco. The luxurious centerpiece of the development is an infinity edge swimming pool, situated by an adjacent tanning deck and series of cabanas, which creates a relaxing oasis environment. Couple the covered outdoor kitchen, picnic area, and barbecue station with the catered community social events and it becomes clear how The Towers By The Park functions as a home with hotel amenities.
For the ultimate in members-only exclusivity, look no further than The Mansions at Woodbridge in Sachse, McKinney, Woodbridge, and The Mansions 3Eighty in Aubrey. With its trellis-covered outdoor kitchen and fireplace lounge, Olympic-sized swimming pool, and social club and game rooms, residents experience true extravagance. From opulent first-floor entrances with covered porches to private, reserved parking, these vast units feature extra tall windows and 9-to-10-foot ceilings. Chic comforts include kitchens boasting stainless steel Whirlpool® brand appliances for gourmet cooking with ease. Baths include jetted Jacuzzi® garden tubs and separate stand-up showers equipped with rainwater showerheads and chrome fixtures. Hiles’ Western Rim Mansions have added refined options for Dallas renters seeking an upgraded lifestyle.
For Marcus Hiles, Dallas is where his success in property investment began but he has always had a propensity to expand and excel. The Texas real estate developer overcame humble beginnings with his indefatigable work ethic, ingenuity, and drive. Developing his business acumen, satisfying his customers, and adapting to the ever-changing housing market has made Hiles the inspirational figure in the industry he is today. SatisFacts, the industry standard in resident survey-based quality ratings, presented his company Western Rim Property Services with the National Resident Satisfaction Award in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. Hiles’ successes extend beyond business, as his support for educational initiatives, children’s hospitals, and environmental programs demonstrates his passion for giving back to the community.
