The Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services and Newport Classic Homes, Marcus Hiles recognized existence of an unmet demand for lavish homes appointed with state-of-the-art amenities early in his career. To fill that gap, he launched Western Rim Property Services (http://www.livew3.com) in 1990. More than a decade later, his companies manage and own over 15,000 upmarket residential rental townhomes and apartments in the Lone Star State.
Western Rim (W3) and its affiliates have owned, developed and managed more than 25,000 apartment homes that are operating (or are in the construction or planning phases) in Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin, New Braunfels, San Antonio and Houston, Texas. The goal is to develop dream communities where everyone would love to live.
Each community is designed to be “The Best Place in the City,” and a place where residents will receive the most value and quality of life for their money. W3 takes great pride in being on the cutting edge of design and amenities. In fact, our luxury properties have a reputation for being unmatched in high-end comforts and signature amenities. Estates and upgraded Grand Estates communities provide elegant apartment living, luxury Mansions brand rental townhomes give our residents a resort-style experience every day, and our stylish Towers properties bring chic, urban living to Texas in the form of modern loft inspired apartments. Our unique properties come complete (in select floorplans) with real hardwood floors, attached garages, granite kitchen countertops, stainless steel kitchen appliances, marble baths with jetted tubs and 80-ounce carpet.
Our clubhouses surpass industry standards, offering premier fitness centers (including free weights), gathering areas, business centers, billiards areas, tanning beds, splash parks and 163-foot resort-style or modern infinity pools. Some of our properties even have a full destination spa and resort on property.
It’s common to find our communities nearby signature championship golf courses and our San Antonio properties are located within the master-planned golf course at TPC San Antonio, part of the JW Marriott Spa and Resort.
If you want to play the top courses designed by Pete Dye and Greg Norman, then live with us. We also offer golf privileges at many of our Mansions–brand properties.
Lakefront living and Hill Country views are also yours for the taking. We even have property fronts on a state forest refuge. Our communities have some of the largest on-site private community parks, jogging trails and shade trees, further enhancing our philosophy of providing dream communities.
W3’s philosophy is not about leasing living space, but offering a contemporary, high quality and luxurious lifestyle to our residents. We offer perfectly appointed, upscale rental townhomes and our mission is simple: build the highest quality homes in the very best locations, maximizing views with signature amenities, in superior school districts. This assures a rapid lease-up and excellent customer acceptance.
W3 aims to provide the service of a Ritz-Carlton and the quality of a fine custom home at an affordable price. Of course, many of these services are also available to residents for an extra fee. The average resident at our Mansions–brand properties has an average annual income exceeding $100,000, which is almost two times that of our typical competitor. It seems that thoughtful customers agree: W3 offers the best overall value.
