Marcus Hiles Charts Environmental Responsibility to Housing Developments

Environmental stewardship is of full value to the philosophy of the well-known Texas real estate developer Marcus Hiles. “Creating communities that work in harmony with nature and lessen humanity’s carbon footprint is a responsibility I embrace,” he says. Hiles, who is Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, has interpreted his philosophy in over 15,000 exclusive rental townhomes and apartments in the Lone Star State.
