Demetrius, or “Demo” as we know him, is a Knoxville transplant who has made the area his home for ten years now. Demo’s father was in the Air Force growing up and they lived in many states while he was a child. After finishing high school in the state of Alabama, he moved to Johnson City, TN and attended East Tennessee State University.
After graduating with undergraduate and masters degrees in Accounting, he spent the first 10 years of his career in the accounting world specializing in construction, commercial real estate, and disaster response. The succeeding three years were spent particularly in disaster response across the United States as a project coordinator. During this time he was responsible for negotiation of sales, leases and regulatory functions for all commercial transactions for the entire west coast. After his stint in this role, he realized he had caught the commercial real estate bug and became licensed in Tennessee.
Demo has closed multiple transactions representing buyers and sellers. His primary area of interest and expertise is in industrial buildings and manufacturing warehouses. Additionally, he has represented multiple tenants with leasehold negotiations in the retail, hospitality, and industrial arenas.
During his down time, he is an avid fan of all Auburn athletics, running, working out, playing golf and hanging out with friends. He is the proud dad of Etta, his four year old mixed breed pup.
