“We are fortunate to say we’ve been in the residential home building business since 1972, were able to attract opportunity during even the toughest times of the Great Recession and today continue to build custom homes that include quality craftsmanship and a few hidden Mickeys,” said Hempel. “We thank the Orlando Business Journal for making the Book of Lists part of its weekly editorial coverage in recognizing the hottest companies by category and taking the time to conduct the necessary research behind it.”

Denise Hicks of Orlando Business Journal based the selection process on 2015 housing starts and Total Dollar Value Homes Closed. Issa Homes is the only custom home builder in Disney’s Golden Oak community to be recognized on this list.
