Mary Demetree Featured on Fox 35 Orlando

by Demetree Global on May 13, 2014

Demetree Global is among the largest firms in Central Florida. Our roots in the region go very deep – in fact, it was our prime real estate that Walt Disney himself ultimately chose to construct the world-famous Magic Kingdom in 1971.

Our own Mary Demetree, the Owner of Demetree Global, sat down with John Brown of Fox 35 Orlando to discuss this amazing bit of family history. Check out the video below:


Mary Demetree’s father and other relatives had owned 12,500 square feet of virtually untouched wetlands and pasture – land that was so desirable that it convinced Walt Disney to choose Orlando over other candidates as the location for his theme parks.

Today, much of Magic Kingdom, as well as a large part of Epcot, is situated on land once owned be the Demetree Family. Needless to say, we’re proud of the pivotal role that our family played in making Walt Disney World a reality. It’s just one of the many ways that we’ve left our mark on this burgeoning real estate market.

Demetree Global continues this proud and exceptional heritage, with Demetree Real Estate Services remaining one of the leading providers of quality Orlando and Miami Commercial Real Estate. Not only do we offer a wide variety of excellent properties – from undeveloped land to state-of-the-art office spaces – but we give each client the most meticulous and personalized service in the industry, guaranteed.

You can see the legacy of Demetree’s business values and principles all across Central and South Florida. From officer centers and student housing, to executive towers and Walt Disney World, our diversified and innovative approach continues to leave its mark on history and our clients.
