Or by using cross-tab like in example below:
CREATE TABLE #test_table
        (
        Company  VARCHAR(3),
        Year     SMALLINT,
        Quarter  TINYINT,
        Amount   DECIMAL(2,1),
        Quantity DECIMAL(2,1)
        )
GO
 INSERT INTO #test_table
        (Company,Year, Quarter, Amount, Quantity)
 SELECT 'ABC', 2006, 1, 1.1, 2.2 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2006, 2, 1.2, 2.4 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2006, 3, 1.3, 1.3 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2006, 4, 1.4, 4.2 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2007, 1, 2.1, 2.3 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2007, 2, 2.2, 3.1 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2007, 3, 2.3, 2.1 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2007, 4, 2.4, 1.5 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2008, 1, 1.5, 5.1 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2008, 3, 2.3, 3.3 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'ABC', 2008, 4, 1.9, 4.2 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2006, 1, 2.1, 3.6 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2006, 2, 2.2, 1.8 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2006, 3, 3.3, 2.6 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2006, 4, 2.4, 3.7 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2007, 1, 3.1, 1.9 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2007, 2, 1.2, 1.2 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2007, 3, 3.3, 4.2 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2007, 4, 1.4, 4.0 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2008, 1, 2.5, 3.9 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2008, 2, 3.5, 2.1 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2008, 3, 1.3, 3.9 UNION ALL
 SELECT 'XYZ', 2008, 4, 3.9, 3.4
GO


SELECT Company,
        Year,
        SUM(CASE WHEN Quarter = 1 THEN Amount   ELSE 0 END) AS Q1Amt,
        SUM(CASE WHEN Quarter = 1 THEN Quantity ELSE 0 END) AS Q1Qty,
        SUM(CASE WHEN Quarter = 2 THEN Amount   ELSE 0 END) AS Q2Amt,
        SUM(CASE WHEN Quarter = 2 THEN Quantity ELSE 0 END) AS Q2Qty,
        SUM(CASE WHEN Quarter = 3 THEN Amount   ELSE 0 END) AS Q3Amt,
        SUM(CASE WHEN Quarter = 3 THEN Quantity ELSE 0 END) AS Q3Qty,
        SUM(CASE WHEN Quarter = 4 THEN Amount   ELSE 0 END) AS Q4Amt,
        SUM(CASE WHEN Quarter = 4 THEN Quantity ELSE 0 END) AS Q4Qty,
        SUM(Amount)   AS TotalAmt,
        SUM(Quantity) AS TotalQty
   FROM #test_table
  GROUP BY Company, Year
  ORDER BY Company, Year

This should do it

select DISTINCT PKEYS.USERID AS USERID, B.PROPERTY_VALUE AS NAME,C.PROPERTY_VALUE AS Occupation, D.PROPERTY_VALUE AS Married , E.PROPERTY_VALUE AS EmergencyContact
FROM
(SELECT USERID,PROPERTY_NAME FROM Property ) PKEYS
LEFT OUTER JOIN Property B ON PKEYS.USERID = B.USERID AND B.PROPERTY_NAME= 'Name'
LEFT OUTER JOIN Property C ON PKEYS.USERID = C.USERID AND C.PROPERTY_NAME= 'Occupation'
LEFT OUTER JOIN Property D ON PKEYS.USERID = D.USERID AND D.PROPERTY_NAME= 'Married'
LEFT OUTER JOIN Property E ON PKEYS.USERID = E.USERID AND E.PROPERTY_NAME= 'EmergencyContact'
