When Don Hempel opened the 2016 Orlando Business Journal Book of Lists, he was proud to see Issa Homes listed as one of the top custom home builders in Orlando. What’s the secret sauce to success in today’s real estate market? He says it’s all about the homeowner experience. Hempel is a partner of Central Florida- based Issa Homes currently building in Disney’s Golden Oak at Walt Disney World® Resort and Lake Nona Golf & Country Club.
“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.”
The selection process was based on 2015 housing starts in Central Florida and Total Dollar Value Homes Closed as researched by Denise Hicks of the Orlando Business Journal. Issa Homes is the only custom home builder in Disney’s Golden Oak community to be recognized on this list.
