Tom Nicholson is a prolific home builder and developer whom I have worked with for many years. I am impressed with his ability and that of his team at Nicholson Companies to guide clients through the construction process effectively. They invest time to really understand client’s needs as well as how to maximize the natural light and surrounding location to epitomize coastal living. Tom maintains relationships with his clients, even building second homes for many. I enjoy working with Tom and highly recommend Nicholson Companies.
I had never built a home from the ground up before. Building my first home with Nicholson Companies was a great experience. The project started by working with the owner Tom Nicholson in designing our dream home. Once we got the plans done and permits applied for, Curt the Project Manager took over. Curt told me from the first day on the job that he was going to treat this project like it was his own home and that he and his family were going to live in it. He was meticulous about the details and it showed when we got to move into the home. After completing the project, I truly feel he honored that promise he made to me day one. Tom and his entire team worked very hard to make us happy home owners. They were very thorough, detailed, on time, every step of the way. The house was built with an unbelievable indoor/outdoor experience including a pool with spectacular views of the entrance to Newport Harbor and Balboa both day and night. One of the most enjoyable benefits of the new home is the overall house livability. The quality of finishes is superb and everyone who has come into the home has fallen in love with it. If you are thinking about building a house on the Southern California coast, definitely call Nicholson Companies!
“Tom Nicholson is an easy builder to work with and we loved the original home he built for us... so much so that we bought a second, updated home from him seven years after purchasing the first. Our home in Kahala is an oasis in the neighborhood. It is current, but not “trendy”. It lives well and draws compliments about its style and layout from every guest we have. Tom worked with us to personalize the home as it was being built and it shows. Every room seems to meld to the outside views/landscape in a dramatic fashion. The layout of the home is superb. It never feels too big when we are at home alone, but there is always a lot of space for our guests when we open the guest rooms for them. If we could pick this home up and move it to the mainland as a second residence, we would do it without hesitation. Need a recommendation for a home builder? Tom is our guy!”

“The thing we love most about our Hawaii Nicholson home is its openness, light and floor plan. These elements along with the quality and attention to detail create an ideal living space for us. We had a guest name our home Hale Ka Maluhia which she thought to mean Tranquility or Serene Home. We feel that way each time we walk through the door.“

When Tom Nicholson first came to the islands almost 20 years ago, he diligently studied the market and spoke with potential Buyers to really understand our market. This provided his foundation to build homes with the highest quality and best design features, incorporating an island-style feeling that is so loved and appropriate for Hawaii. Tom’s style has been emulated by many developers in Honolulu, the best compliment that you can receive. All of the Buyers who have purchased his homes give praises about the incredible floor plans and the top notch quality of Tom’s homes. The compliments from Buyers and their agents have been significant – and if I could describe Tom Nicholson in four words, they would be – Excellence, Credibility, Experience and Trust. I am proud to be working together with Tom for so many years, and happy that he loved Hawaii enough to build his homes here. We are so lucky.
I can't begin to express how much I enjoy working with Tom and his talented Team! He is a Master Builder and the luxury and innovations he includes in his homes continue to astound me. I am in awe of his problem solving and creativity. I always enjoy meeting his home owners and hearing how much they love what he built for them, how they’re on their 2nd or 3rd home with him - he has quite the Fan Club! I always welcome the opportunity to work with Tom and Nicholson Companies - I know it will be an enjoyable experience with an incredible final product!
