Many people can see the success of Western Rim Property Services, but they haven’t witnessed the hard work and extreme dedication used to build this real estate company from the ground up. Marcus Hiles, the man behind this company, specializes in beautifully built homes at affordable prices. His dream was to provide luxurious housing for the average working family. He believed in high quality townhouses and communities that were desirable to everyone.
Today, his dream is a reality, with over 7,500 townhomes and homeowner’s associations all over the state of Texas – a total of over $1 billion in assets. Hiles is a visionary and knew that he needed to not just provide beautiful homes but place them in prime locations in urban areas so they were close to good school districts and job opportunities. He even refrained from hiring third party services to manage his properties and did it all himself, cutting unnecessary spending. It was at this time Western Rim Property Services began to see major success.
With his fortune, Hiles took the time to spruce up his housing communities by adding top-notch amenities with cutting-edge technology, like infinity pools, spas, gyms, cafes, woodlands, and you can even find golf courses in many locations. Although Hiles has seen great success, it took a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to build his empire. After receiving a Bachelors at Rice University, he went on to earn a Masters in Business Administration at Pepperdine University in California. After graduation, at the age of 28, Hiles poured in all his capital and energy to begin Western Rim Property Services. He even admits to running into financial problems at first, having trouble paying staff and then having to sleep on the floor of a friend’s house so he could make ends meet.
But Hiles was taught at a very young age that hard work and sticking to your guns when times were rough was the recipe for success. As you can see, the hard work paid off. Today, Hiles has used his fortune to give back to the people of Texas by donating to many groups in need. He has donated over $1 million to fund K-12 education over the past ten years and has funded $1 million to go toward higher education. Hiles has donated to art programs, disadvantaged women’s programs, and children’s hospitals all over the state. As a philanthropist, Hiles continues to support local charities and good causes.
