What can I say, living on Maui has been a wonderful experience. I arrived on Maui at the age of 19, with a hundred dollars in my pocket and a surfboard. When I was 23 years old, I built my first home in Haiku. My real success is my family. My beautiful wife and I raised four wonderful kids, they are all doing extremely well and are raising their own families.
Living in Maui is an opportunity to experience all that Island life has to offer. More than a destination, it’s a lifestyle. I can provides expert and professional real estate service. With a vast knowledge of the Maui real estate market, and 25 year’s experience selling real estate on Maui. When it comes to buying and selling real estate on Maui clients trust Steven for results.

Maui real estate has been a lifelong passion of mine, and I have received numerous awards as a Top Producer in my 25-year career. I am blessed working and living on Maui for the past 49 years. The diversity of my interests has allowed me to develop the sales and marketing skills I currently use to successfully brand and market unique island properties on Maui. I am a web Geek and top blogger in the State of Hawaii. The reason I blog is to support the marketing of my properties and tie them into the Maui lifestyles and share them on the internet, and with the world. My focus is to get the word out through Internet ranking, social media and interacting with agents and buyers in Canada and the mainland U.S.A. These skills benefit my clients to give their Maui properties worldwide exposure throughout the web.

I have had the honor to work on many of Maui’s most distinctive sales projects, which include Wailea Beach Villas, Ho’olei Wailea, and Papali Wailea. Other project sales I have successfully sold include Wailea Fairway Villas and Spreckelsville on Maui’s Northshore. I also managed and sold a subdivision in Haiku. My experience extends from the luxury communities of Wailea and Kihei, to cottages and estates in Upcountry Kula, Pukalani, Haiku, Maui North-shore, and across Kaanapali on the west side of the island. I believe in hard work that produces results. I am committed to effectively producing a successful closing for your real estate transaction on Maui. Prior to real estate I was a licensed contractor for 16 years on Maui, and owned Nickens Interiors with my brother. I been active in the local church on Maui. In my spare time I am an avid surfer, windsurfer, play guitar and enjoy gardening. I love and enjoy living on Maui.

I am looking forward to introducing you to the unique Maui communities, the lifestyles, and prestigious properties on Maui.

Aloha Steve

Why Move to Maui.

There really is not enough that we could say about Steven!! As a first time buyer in Maui and out of Switzerland, to say the least, we were a bit trepidatious about making that plunge as a home buyer. Steven, however, made the process virtually painless and was patient enough to explain everything that was happening as the process went along, returned all our calls, emails and made us feel safe and protected and showed that he had our best interest at the forefront of the entire purchase process. Steven is a trustworthy person! We highly recommend to any home buyer, or seller to contact Steven!

My husband and I would like to thank Steven for your expeditious and excellent service, in facilitating our sale in Polo Beach Club unit #804. We left our unit in Steven care and appreciated the professional photos, fresh Protea flowers for the photo shoot and excellent video work. We are very pleased closing with a full price offer not bad. Sincerely, Lise and Bent Ewald

In 2010 we came to Maui looking to purchase a home here. We were introduced to Steve Nickens by close friends who had bought their Maui home from him and subsequently became close friends. Steve worked tirelessly to find the perfect place for us, driving us to various parts of the island to experience the many microclimates and home styles here. His diligence, integrity, genuine interest in our needs and a great sense of humor endeared him to us, and we too became close friends with Steve and his lovely wife. We think he is a great friend and highly recommend him as a great realtor. (side note I sold this home in 2018 for my clients) Rich and Kalinda Winter
