DAA Northwest is proud to be a part of the McConkey Auction Group.
Our independent auction family responds quickly to changes in market conditions, technology, customer requirements and more. This flexibility enables us to stay connected with our remarketing and dealer customers.
The Big Sky Sale of 1993 was our first DAA promotion ever. It was during that sale 20 years ago that I first felt confident we could, in fact, build a market here in Spokane. Since then, over a million cars have passed through our lanes!
For the last 16 years, we have teamed-up with Silver Collector Car Auctions to host a fun and very productive collector car auction event. This year's sale, from collector car to wholesale auction, was one of our best ever. We offered a total of 2500 units and sold over 1500! For us, that is a huge success! Hats off to the DAA team for orchestrating and pulling off the logistics of what is a very complex event.
As for the market - well, as we've stated in the past, late April and May traditionally bring a slowing to the robust run-up of the first quarter of the year. This year has been no exception, yet the market is still very healthy. Cars and trucks are not appreciating right now, and many facets of the market have declined slightly, but all in all, the market remains in very good shape.
This coming Tuesday, May 14th we are hosting an Open House at DAA Seattle. We hope you'll join us from 5:30 – 8:00 PM. We are eager to introduce all of you to our facility and staff as we prepare for our inaugural sale the following Tuesday, May 21st – sale time is 12 noon!
We look forward to serving the Puget Sound area DAA style.
