In Propria Persona

Marcus Hiles of Fort Worth is a lifelong entrepreneur and successful businessman with decades of experience in property management, sales, and other aspects of the real estate industry.  He is the founder and CEO of two Texas-based property management firms, Western Rim Property Services and Mansions Custom Homes.  Marcus comes from a modest background, which helped him to develop the talents and the work ethic he displays in any project he sets his mind to.

The two businesses founded by Marcus have provided luxury rentals and top-quality custom homes in some of the most desirable residential locations in the Dallas/Fort Worth region of Texas, offering residents the finest amenities to enjoy a higher quality of life.

A Priori

Although Marcus Hiles enjoys the Dallas morning news detailing successes he has earned in many years of leading the real estate industry, he is from far more humble origins.  As a child and a young man, he stresses that his humble upbringing gave him a unique preparation to handle the challenges and obstacles he would face as he raced towards success. He points out that he did not come from wealth and luxury; in fact, his family was firmly in the middle class.  Those youthful experiences helped him to understand and to appreciate the finer things in life – attributes he strives to share with his many clients in his property development ventures throughout the state of Texas.

During his undergraduate degree at Rice University in Houston, Marcus was in the Economics honorary society.  In his junior year there, he had the distinction of being in the top half of 1% of his class academically.  Marcus Hiles completed two more years at Pepperdine in order to complete his formal education.  He served as a Board Chair for the Board of Visitors of the Business School at Pepperdine and is a Distinguished Alumnus of the school.

Ad Colligenda Bona

The properties range from townhomes to apartments and condominium developments. These developments provide top-drawer amenities like fitness centers, clubrooms, exercise trails, on-site parks, and golf courses.

His second company, Mansions Custom Homes, is aimed at providing prospective homeowners the very finest in residential real estate.  Developing properties in the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, the company has also expanded their reach to communities in San Antonio, Houston, and Austin. The company is known for luxurious appointments, building in upscale finishes and styles for the most discerning clients in the Texas real estate market.  Craftsmanship and an attention to detail like few others have given the company a well-deserved reputation for utmost quality.

In both ventures near Fort Worth, Marcus has displayed a work ethic that few others can match.  His focus and forward-thinking vision have complemented his passion for excellence in everything he and his company staff undertakes.  His work has kept his property companies at the very leading edge of the real estate industry, and he is continually defining new heights of success and integrity with the projects and developments he is responsible for.

Ex Fida Bona

Marcus Hiles is an accomplished oenophile and wine collector.  In 2010, he and Sotheby’s Hong Kong auctioned off wines from his Magnificent Cellar, which makes use of an underground river to offer cooling and humidity for maintaining his private collection.  The auction included over 6500 bottles, and were estimated between $3 million and nearly $5 million in value.  This large number of bottles represented only a fraction of Marcus’ impressive collection.

Marcus has also won the respect and admiration of his peers in the property development industry and other markets for his philanthropic efforts. He and the companies he helms have donated millions of dollars to K-12 educational programs, after-school clubs, job placement initiatives, and career development programs. These donations were for both public and private school programs, and have helped many children and young adults achieve success.

His greatest outreach is through his yearly tree-planting initiative.  Each year, Marcus and his company donate and plant 2,500 trees across the state of Texas. Starting in 2017, Marcus expects to expand their outreach to Las Vegas and surrounding areas as well.

Western Rim Property Services and Mansions Custom Homes will continue to provide Texas-area residents the upscale living conditions they desire.  As more properties are developed, he and his companies will lead the real estate industry with an impressive inventory, currently exceeding 25,000 residential lease units. Marcus’ commitment to outstanding quality and client care serves to cement his place as one of the real estate industry’s leading lights – he is an example of how hard work and passion for excellence translates into both personal and professional success.

Marcus Hiles has received positive attention from environmental groups as well.  Calling his companies’ development initiatives those that “strive to protect and grow green spaces”, his property developments offer sustainability and reduced environmental impact.  This, in turn, improves the quality of life for those who are fortunate enough to live in the companies’ upscale luxury real estate properties, either as lessees or owners.  His hard work and the quality of construction at his developments mean that his business ventures are prepared for long-term successes well into the future.
