Danielle Quinn – Project Manager
Danielle has had an interest in houses since a young age, drawing floorplans and researching a career path in architecture as a kid. She grew up in Vermont ski racing and ended up attending St. Lawrence University, a college with a ski team and not an architecture program. The plan was to major in art and go to grad school for architecture. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Fine Arts as a double major, getting a bit side tracked and intrigued with Sociology. She continued on to University of Connecticut for a Masters of Sociology degree…looking to save the people and society.
A Masters in Sociology led her to a marketing and advertising position for a building company. And drawn back into the housing world, she naturally found herself with a real estate license and years of sales in both resale and new construction homes. Although she found great success in sales, surpassing goals and gaining recognition, it was working for a custom builder that she found her true passion for building. She was able to prove herself as a Project Manager getting a shot at renovating homes for a small company in Durham. She obtained her General Contractor license and was looking to launch her own company combining real estate sales with home renovations when she met with Grau Building. Grau Building Company proved to be the best next transition into more custom, larger projects and working with an incredibly experienced team. She has since managed everything from single kitchen renovations to whole house renovations with additions and new home construction projects.
Organized, thoughtful and caring, Danielle is a great advocate for the clients and holds herself to a very high standard. She loves what she does for a living and sees homes as her medium of art. Although it took a bit of time to discover her dream job was boots on the ground & building homes, she loves most showing her three daughters they can do what ever they want and be what ever they want when they grow up. Girls can be pretty awesome builders.
