The guru behind the great success of Western Rim Property Services is none other than its founder and Texas native, Marcus Hiles. Having over 7,500 properties and homeowner’s associations under the watch of his company, Hiles has amassed over $1 billion dollars in total assets. Never shying away from his humble roots, Hiles admits that the lessons his father, an inner city minister, gave him the foundations for his good work ethic and moral compass. What were these lessons? Simply put, they were to work hard and never give up.
With such lessons, Marcus Hiles understood that the best way to achieve his dreams was through a good education. Thus, he buried himself in books, first by attending Rice University where he received his Bachelor’s Degree. He continued developing his education by going to Pepperdine University in California where he earned a Master’s in Business Administration. With his diploma in hand, he headed back to his home soil where he began constructing plans for his real estate business.
Western Rim Property Services began in 2004 with Marcus Hiles at the helm with only 28 years of life under his belt. The start was rough for the young man and financial issues were constant. He had to dip into his own personal earnings to make ends meet and more than one night were spent at a friend’s place. Despite his struggles, he never forgot the lessons of his youth and kept working towards his vision of providing luxurious homes at a price that the working class could afford without breaking the budget. It took time, but after a years the company’s innovative business model starting getting its much deserved attention.
The model Marcus put forth constructe a company that would do more than just construct the housing and finding tenants. Western Rim Property services would provide such services as well as act as manager of the properties. This unique structure allowed him to cut out any third party service charges. As a result, his company was able to save money and price its properties at or below their market value. However, Marcus Hiles does not just retain his earnings- he puts them back into the community he was creating without any extra costs to the tenants. In addition, he is able to add state of the art amenities such as golf courses, spas, and gyms to his properties.
Today, Western Rim Property Services supervises some of the most sought after areas throughout the whole of Texas. Clearly, the people of Texas have fallen in love with the socially conscious approach that Marcus Hiles has taken.
