Marcus Hiles has overseen the development of over 25,000 apartments and homes since  launching the successful Texas-based property developer Western Rim Property Services. What lies at the heart of his success is constantly reassessing and refining an admirable vision and philosophy which runs through all of his projects. He aims to provide a level of luxury and high-class residential living to people who possess a taste for modern and exquisite design- and who who want to live in the heart of nature without sacrificing any of the conveniences of modern urban living. On top of this, they have also demonstrated a commitment to keeping their projects as environmentally friendly as possible, without sacrificing the high design specifications that make the properties so desirable.

As Marcus D. Hiles, CEO of Western Rim’s Presentations on Slideshare clearly demonstrate, the buildings themselves feature many environmentally friendly aspects to cater for the eco-conscious, young professionals Western Rim hopes to attract to their properties. Weather stripping,  reflective radiant barrier roof decking in the attic, dual pane low e-windows, and top of the range sound insulation are just some of the features fitted as standard. All the units are serviced by HVAC systems, which uses 39% less energy than the industry norm. CFL and LED light bulbs are used to further reduce energy usage, and all the landscape systems are designed using water conserving irrigation systems.

All in all, it is clear that all the Western Rim Properties implement the environmental vision that Marcus Hiles has promised to observe in all of his properties. He has shown an unswerving commitment to carry out these wishes on each project, and has proved a breath of fresh air in the ever competitive housing property markets.

And it is this heady mix which appears to make Marcus Hiles, Houston, Real Estate, such a force to be reckoned with in the real estate industry. He has already proved by dint of his extensive portfolio of successful properties that it is possible to achieve quality without losing sight of his ethical goals. When deciding upon locations for the developments, he chooses the most beautiful rural areas without spoiling the natural environment in any way. To do so, architects are encouraged to study the landscapes to ensure the developments fit in as naturally as possible, while maintaining and cultivating areas such as woodlands and parklands. Not only is this important to attract residents to the property but it also helps keep the environment aesthetically attractive to the wider community- to whom considerable advice is asked when first embarking on the developments.
