Marcus Hiles offers sage advice for prospective tenants in Dallas, coming from his expertise in building rental properties that embody luxury living. “When renters choose to live in communities that align with their lifestyles, they achieve a greater work-life balance,” he states. This balance is especially important given that a third of apartment residents are between the ages of 30 and 44, the prime years of their careers. Another 30 percent are between 45 and 64 years old. Hiles’ company Western Rim Property Services designs apartments that deliver resort-like amenities while maintaining a reasonable commute distance, ensuring that Dallas will continue to trend toward renting over home ownership.
