Historically having a short harvest period that sets Texas Vineyards behind, a shift in both wine demand and production methods in the wine industry has recently helped the region sustain a healthy harvest cycle. Now celebrating their annual grape harvest in the summer months of July – that’s four months ahead of growers in the ever-popular Napa region – the state has had one of their most successful seasons producing 38% more than 2017 and is continuing to grow each year.
With the market developing a growing taste for different blends including varietals that have a shorter hang cycle, the state’s wine businesses are reducing their loss caused by those blends that require much lengthier dry times. “Paired with advances in winemaking technologies, mid-west wine producers are able to maximize efficiency and production costs helping them compete better inside and outside of their local markets,” shares Texas-based award-winning wine collector, Marcus Hiles.

The wish list and must-haves of renters and home buyers in today’s market has drastically changed in recent years. Most seen within the nation’s top surrounding metro areas, residents are putting importance on not only their indoor living area but also their outdoor accommodations.
Two example locations are suburb areas that border two of Texas’ top cities: Austin and Dallas. Recognized as being some of the best places to live in the state, the suburbs of Allen and Riverside, Texas have been recognized as offering some of the best in balanced living, helping the area’s residents sustain healthy, active lifestyles.
The three keys to a growing area – housing, job and population increases are on the rise in Dallas and its surrounding suburbs; continuing to make it one of the fastest growing cities in 2018.
Leading the nation in population increases, Texas topped the charts as the number one state experiencing growth year over year from 2016 to 2017 in study conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. With Dallas as the number one location in the state, it’s no wonder this city is growing in popularity for 2018.
One of the country’s largest states, Texas has been making a big impression in the economic development of present day commercial opportunities seen across the globe. Taking its place at the top in year-over-year population, job expansion and overall commercial growth; the state has been attracting residents and businesses from across the country and world over the last decade.
Appealing to out-of-state and international transplants for its low cost of living, increasing job opportunities and overall quality of living; the business community is also fueling from similar benefits the southwestern state offers.
Beginning with the accommodating business climate, big name and newly established companies are brought to the area through the nationally low taxes and regulations it provides. Also adding to its appeal are the decreased barriers to entry Texas’ vast commercial landmass enables along with the talented population it retains. “With these key factors separating the state from others in the nation for its commercial value, businesses are looking to Texas to help position them ahead of competitors and for a future of success,” shares Marcus Hiles, a leading Texas entrepreneur and CEO of the Dallas-based property firm Western Rim Properties.
The commercial industry throughout the state of Texas has seen growing interest from globally recognized organizations among the world’s leading markets. Tech and industrial sectors, hospitality, manufacturing and energy industries are among those growing their roots in the nation’s second largest state that offers some of the best in vast land mass, talented workforce, affordability and business friendly regulations.
A unique environment where a collective group of diverse companies, populations and communities can come together to create opportunities and success at scale, the state has positioned itself in a way that has attracted organizations such as AT&T, Dell and Southwest Airlines.
Fortune’s 64th annual report released late this May sees the state as owning the third largest sector nationwide for Fortune 500 Company headquarters. The businesses on this list are those leading the economy and operating at a rate that produces 2/3rds the United States GDP. With nearly $13 trillion in revenue combined, Fortune describes this elite group as the most important engine of both US and global economies.
Holding 48 of the 500 firms on Fortune’s list, it is no surprise the overall Texas economy has continued to grow steadily each year in part from these companies that are each pulling in a minimum of $5.4 billion in revenues.
“The benefits that have come to the Texas area through this level of mass business operations has also commercially impacted other areas. Small business and startup communities, business infrastructure industries such as data centers as well as the migration of out of state and international employees coming for job opportunities,” shares DFW-based entrepreneur Marcus Hiles, who has seen a growing demand in his rental properties from this commercial boom.
As early as the 1960s, well-thought-out commercial expansions have ruled the residential sector, and Texas has pioneered this trend. Las Colinas, established in 1973, was one of the first such examples, and is still witnessing growth today. In 2006, citizens voted to approve changes to deed limitations to allow an even greater density of urban mixed use construction. In the 1970s, The Woodlands was formed, and still stands as one of the lavish residential and business destinations in the Houston area. The accomplishment of Marcus Hiles’ business comes from the foundations these great communities set. Western Rim’s developments feature resort style facilities so that their occupants never have to leave the estates, if they decide, and are built upon sensibly selected lots that feature beautiful natural landscapes and suitable access to Texas’ many attractions. Each property’s matchless planned events and social activities promote fit, lively lifestyles and encourage inclusive, neighboring surroundings.
Smart upgrades begin at home entrances. Locks controlled by apps can help users manage access rights of home visitors. Entry codes can be appointed to different family members or even be decided on a short-term basis for staff like pet sitters and cleaners. Likewise, locking systems send an alert when a guest comes, while an HD camera with microphone gives a live feed enabling hosts to connect with guests that are waiting, while being remotely present. Wi-Fi doorbells are innovative in terms of both security and power. People can even use the high-intensity stream for enhanced night vision views in the dark, and to protect their privacy by setting it in a silent mode to ensure no interruptions. This is especially useful when a baby is asleep or while one is taking Saturday afternoon nap. Marcus Hiles notes that even our beds are getting smarter: sleepers for newborns play music, shine comforting lights, and lightly rock babies with automatic settings; while adult mattresses track behavioral patterns and analyze numbers to improve sleep quality by controlling the position.
A definite reason of a larger carbon footprint in a lot of advanced countries is the increased usage of heated water in homes. On an average, a resident uses almost ten gallons of water on an everyday basis. To regulate this scenario, Marcus Hiles recommends taking fewer, quicker, cooler showers and turning off the tap while brushing or shaving. Further, fitting low flow showerheads and toilets can cause a positive impact.
Air conditioners are high energy consumers which means that when they have to work overtime, you’re going to have to work overtime as well, to cover their expenses. Marcus Hiles, the owner and CEO of Western Rim Property Services has a lot of experience in real estate and claims that the roofing insulation is the main culprit for high energy bills. He suggests a small trick which would reduce the heat transfer by 97 and that is the installment of highly reflective radiant barrier roof panels installed in the attic.

The real estate market in Texas had many demands but most of them were fulfilled by Marcus Hiles and Western Rim Properties. Affordable luxury is now just a phone call away.

Although he has a lot of work in the real estate market, Hiles often donates money to educational purposes and shows his deep commitment to society’s development.
