Demetrius McWhorter attended California State University at Long Beach where he majored in Business Administration. He started his collegiate football career there and was coached and under the tutelage of the late great George Allen and NFL Hall of Famer Willie Brown.
After finishing school in 1994, Demetrius left California and moved to Las Vegas to work at the family restaurant that was located directly on the south Strip in Las Vegas. Demetrius helped successfully run the family business for four years where his routine duties included complete operations and personnel, payroll, advertising, marketing, and inventory management.
In 1998, Demetrius took an opportunity to go in a different direction. He partnered with an associate to take over a fledging mortgage brokerage. He and his partner rebuilt the company over a five year period going from 5 initial employees to well over 140. Demetrius learned every facet of the financial markets and mortgage lending industry while also running his own team of loan officers. While managing millions in yearly revenue and handling daily operations as partner, his loan officer group also consistently led the company in performance and loan closings.
In 2003 Demetrius sold his partnership and with investors started to develop large residential projects. During this development period Demetrius also saw an opportunity in the Las Vegas housing market, personally buying, rehabbing and selling over 15 properties within 24 months.
As a broker-salesperson here at Acclaim, Demetrius is an expert who works with several high volume REO brokerages, agents, auction buyers, and investors to locate, buy, sell, wholesale and rehab properties in the Las Vegas Valley.
