George Washington Carver concluded that “education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.” Marcus Hiles, the Dallas-based real estate developer and Founder of Western Rim, agrees with this statement, believing that education is surely the foundation for one’s success in all aspects of their life. Hiles avidly encourages suburban living for families seeking out the best educational opportunities available. Year after year, suburban schools perform higher than urban schools in regards to test scores and graduation rates, and a study conducted by America’s Promise and cited by the New York Times elaborated that “the average high school graduation rate in the nation’s 50 largest cities was 53 percent, compared with 71 percent in the suburbs.”
Marcus Hiles deeply considers his company’s carbon footprint and lasting environmental impact with each project before they begin. He believes tree plantings can have a significant environmental impact. “Trees and vegetation play a key role in every Western Rim development,” Hiles says. “We give our renters the lowest housing density with the greatest amount of green spaces. This strategy extends beyond improving air quality and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. These plants can also minimize pollutants in storm water and reduce overall neighborhood noise. One healthy tree is equal to 10 standard room-sized air conditioners running up to 20 hours a day. Our trees provide much needed shade from the Texas heat and can help our renters reduce cooling needs by up to 30%.”
When it comes to living space, bigger is often better. The increasing regard for crowded urban lifestyles subsequently results in the decrease of square footage for the average renter– which is what makes the expansive living quarters of Marcus Hiles’ Western Rim properties so incredibly attractive. Each and every property is thoughtfully created with the modern renter’s demand for adequate living space in mind, resulting in a refined reguge to come home to in the midst of a bustling crowded world.
Marcus Hiles’ Dallas News highlighted real estate firms, Western Rim Property Services and its affiliate Newport Classic Homes, have developed and managed more than 15,000 upmarket apartment homes across Texas. Hiles, Founding Chairman and CEO, founded his two businesses with the goal of creating luxury rental communities that are affordable and host greatly desirable, exclusive lifestyle amenities that enrich the lives of both families and young professionals.
