Steven Nickens


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, and they are all doing extremely well and are raising their own families.

Maui real estate has been a lifelong passion of mine, and I have received numerous awards as a Top Producer in my 27-year career. I have been 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 Hawai’i. 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, giving 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 North Shore. 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 have 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.

What my clients are saying...

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

Just a quick note to express our appreciation for the exemplary service you had done in getting our house sold as quickly as you did.  We know that there were many “little” things that took place that resulted in the closing in a very timely manner.  We knew when we bought the home several years ago that it was a wise decision then.  As unforeseen circumstances sometimes arise, as such happened to us, we had to sell after a few years and move back to the mainland.  There was never a doubt in our minds as to whom we would contact for the sale of our house and you came through again.  We would totally recommend your services to anyone who is looking to buy or sell any real estate.  Once again thank you for your services in making the sale of our home a success and as easy of a transition as was possible.
