David Quinn, President - Northern Virginia

DQSQ2David Quinn founded The Auction House of Falls Church with his father, Paul, in 1995. At that time, David was a “one man band,” single handedly building and executing our auctions. Initially, David built one auction per month and in a short time span, expanded to more than one a week. When the business was destroyed by fire in 2004, David’s leadership was critical in recovery efforts. Within hours, he forwarded phone lines to his personal cell phone, began alerting clients of the damage and resolving every case to satisfaction. Like a phoenix from the ashes David has led the exponential growth of the new Quinn’s Auction Galleries year after year propelling Quinn’s to one of Washington’s leading firms. David was instrumental in the acquisition of Waverly Auctions, LLC in 2004 and the movement of that business from Bethesda, MD and its incorporation into Quinn’s Falls Church facility.
