After being declared Southern Living’s Custom Builder of the 2012, Castle Homes and President Alan Looney now have been honored as the Nashville Business Journal’s “Best in Business” finalist for 2012.

Winners were selected through a rigorous process beginning with nominations from the community leaders. Independent judges analyzed nominees based on predetermined criteria such as revenue over a three-year period, current growth, marketing strategy and other accomplishments. Judges screened nominees to determine which companies qualify as finalists for each of the categories and Castle Homes was honored to be a finalist for employers with 1-25 employees.
