It is often said that one makes a living by what they get for work completed but that a life is earned by what they give. Dallas-based real estate development expert and avid philanthropist Marcus Hiles provides the perfect example of both. Dovetailing his passionate work into a network of efforts to give back to the community and benefit both local and global causes, Hiles has made it his purpose to offer a better future for all. Growing up the son of an urban minister, Hiles learned of the challenge presented by limited resources, assisted by strong faith and family. Embracing the horizontal and vertical progress of his work, Hiles’ charitable actions have delivered widespread rewards and advantages.
