Marcus Hiles notes that Texas women who face economic hardship need a hand up instead of a handout. Because women make up half of the U.S. workforce, Hiles says it is critical to leverage resources that will maximize earning potential. His generous donations to career service centers around the state are supporting women in exploring nontraditional jobs typically offering higher pay and strong benefits. “Career counseling also provides training in the soft skills needed for successful employment, such as interviewing, technical literacy, active listening, and teamwork,” Hiles noted.
One of Western Rim Property Services’ most popular developments is the Mansions at Stone Hill, located just north of Austin, Texas. Marcus Hiles, founder and CEO of Western Rim Properties, designed the Mansions at Stone Hill to be a perfect complement between an energetic culture and the resilient beauty of the Texas landscape. Here, residents can enjoy the feel of a rural life, yet a vibrant, vivacious city is just a few miles down the road.
The Mansions at Stone Hill feature a 370-unit apartment complex with options available for both luxury and senior living. Hiles and Western Rim selected this Pflugerville location due to its proximity to Austin as well as important social locations like Home Depot, Target, Best Buy, 24-Hour Fitness, several fast-food restaurants, and a movie theatre. On site itself, residents have access to a social lounge with HDTV entertainment, an ultramodern fitness center, and a resort-style pool. A key component of the Western Rim Properties philosophy is to create a community spirit within the development, and the Mansions at Stone Hill provide that spirit in abundance.
All homes created and built by Marcus Hiles yield from the cellulose sound insulation as it aids lower energy consumption and offers a greener living space. Cellulose is most often made up of recycled waste newspaper, and in the interest of safety, is chemically treated to be fire retardant. With the competent installation methods applied on Hiles properties, cellulose accomplishes walls and hinders transfer, helping in effective heating and cooling during cold and hot seasons, thereby lowering utility bills. A learning by the University of Colorado School of Architecture and Planning confirmed that cellulose drops 26.4% less heat energy over time versus fiberglass. Pair this realistic construction favor with Hiles’ other ecological and economical specifics and it becomes immediately clear why properties created by Marcus Hiles both sound and feel truly grand. The homes’ excellent weather stripping keeps cooled air in, the dual pane windows reduce heat loss by as much as 75 percent, and attics are furnished with greatly reflective radiant barrier roof panels that reflect heat and “reduce up to 97 percent of heat transfer, making attics about 30 degrees cooler,” says Hiles. From the Lone Star State’s sweltering summers to the chilliest winter nights, the full depth cellulose sound insulation of Hiles homes ensures solitude and contentment year round.
