Texas real estate entrepreneur Marcus Hiles founded Western Rim Property Services and its wholly owned affiliate, Mansions Custom Homes, with the goal of building “the highest quality homes in the very best locations while maximizing views with signature amenities in superior school districts,” according to company philosophy. In other words, owner and CEO Marcus Hiles wants his companies to furnish their customers with “The Best Place in the City,” while remaining affordable. Western Rim and Mansions Custom Homes own and manage living communities, custom home communities, luxury apartment buildings, and active adult communities throughout the eastern and central portions of the Lone Star State. Through his companies, Marcus Hiles runs more than 7,500 homeowner associations, townhouse communities, and apartments in San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and the Dallas/Fort Worth region, including Rockwall, Tyler, North Richland Hills Prosper, and Collin Counties. Signature amenities of the townhome and apartment communities built by Marcus Hiles companies include lakefront homes and ready access to championship golf courses. Some developments, such as The Cascades Lake Towers, stand in the middle of country clubs designed by PGA celebrities like Pete Dye, Greg Norman, and Jack Nicklaus. Residents can take advantage of reciprocal privileges at any of Western Rim’s premiere destinations. One Western Rim community boasts its own private vineyard and another adjoins a state forest. Marcus Hiles’ design team places many of the company’s developments around a central park containing outdoor activity areas, walking trails, and private lakes. Most Marcus Hiles communities feature clubhouses between 7,000 and 13,000 square feet, with anything from European Grand Spas, hair and nail salons, and an on-site doctor’s office to an executive business center and a Starbucks café. Physical fitness facilities in the clubhouse may include free weights and exercise rooms, sauna, tanning beds, billiard areas, spring-loaded aerobic floors, steam rooms, and swimming pools. Western Rim and Mansions Custom Homes pursue a policy of strategically placing their communities in the top school districts in Texas. Marcus Hiles understands that both homeowners and tenants want a quality education for their children.
