Robert Quigg (also known as Bert Quigg) is a property developer in the United States and Canada. He was born on July 19, 1967, in British Columbia to Irish immigrant parents.
At age 19, Quigg left his parent's home with $500 and an old pickup truck, and soon started building luxury developments. He went on to study and graduate from Ivey Business School, Harvard University, and Stanford University.
Quigg's construction and development companies operate under the "Quintessentially Quigg" brand, founded by him in 1986 and specializing in high-end residential and commercial developments.
Quigg's developments have fetched record-breaking sales, including the most expensive condo ever sold in British Columbia.
In 2005, his development "The Argyle by Quigg" won Best Waterfront Development in the International Property Awards.
In 2006, “The Properties by Quigg” created a new sustainable housing form, addressing the complexities of building multi-family homes in a steep mountainous setting.
In 2007, Quigg designed and launched a $1.4 billion development "Capella by Quigg" on Vancouver Island at Bear Mountain.
Quigg has been compared to mega-developers Nile Niami and Mohamed Hadid as competitors in the building and selling of luxury estates in Beverly Hills and Bel Air.
In December 2016, nine entities associated with Quigg filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, involving an $80+ million dispute.
Quigg is a member of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO), the Urban Land Institute (ULI), and the Urban Development Institute (UDI).
Quigg currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife Lauren Quigg and their children.
