Aloha and welcome to my life on Maui!
What can I say living on Maui has been a wonderful experience. I arrived on Maui at the age of 19, with hundred dollars in my pocket and a surfboard. When I was 23 years old I built my first home with my good friends help. Since then I have built four other homes for my family. My real success is my family.
My wife and I raised four wonderful kids which they are all doing extremely well and they are raising their own families. Lets don’t forget three very cute granddaughters.
Before I got into real estate on Maui, I was a flooring contractor for 16 years and owned a very successful interior store Nickens Interiors. During my 19 years of selling Maui real estate I have had the pleasure of working with some of Maui’s finest firms.
Maui real estate has been a lifelong passion of mine and I have received numerous awards as a Top Producer in my 19 year career. I am blessed working and living on Maui for the past 41 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 real estate properties on Maui. I am a web-designer, video marketer and top blogger in the State of Hawaii. My video marketing skills include creating high quality videos of your property to effectively market your home globally. The reason I blog is to support the marketing of my properties and tie them into the Maui lifestyles and share them 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 and customers to give their listed property worldwide exposure through out the world.
I have had the honor to work on many of Maui’s most distinctive projects sales which include Wailea Beach Villas, Ho’olei Wailea Condominiums, and Papali Wailea. Other project sales I have successfully sold include Wailea Fairway Villas and Spreckelsville on Maui’s Northshore.
My experience extends from the beachside communities of Lahaina, to cottages and estates in Upcountry Kula to Haiku and across the Wailea landscape with it’s reputation for the finest homes and condos on Maui. I also have extensive experience in land development and marketing of land through out Maui. I believe in hard work produces results. My goal is to represent you to effectively, market and produce an successful closing of your property.
My family means everything to me. My wife and I raised two boys, who are top surfers on Maui. Micah a pro surfer and manager of Dakine international pro surf team. He is married to a charming girl and has a cute daughter named Makenna. My other son Nate is computer programmer, married to a talented girl with two daughters and is another stand out surfer on Maui. I have two lovely daughters that are in the mainland and doing really well. My lovely wife is born and raised on Maui, my best friend, talented artist, just a great human being
My wife and I love to travel when we can, she has been an inspiration in my life.
I been a passionate waterman since I was a young boy. When my boys were competing in the state surf contest I was right along side of them competing. For a number of years I sailed 16 ft Prindle Cats on Maui with my wife and kids. That lead to taking up windsurfing in the last 5 years. My boys are stand up surfers winning major events on Maui and surfing Jaws Maui’s big wave spot. When I get home I love to get my hands in the dirt, for years I been gardening. I raise vegetables, papayas, bananas, avocados,and have an extensive orchard.
Over the years I been involved with Hope Chapel in Kihei, worked with youth over the years. Recently we were in the Philippines (2011) putting on a surf contest and sports camps for kids in the outer islands of Sariago with a group of men from Bank of Hawaii, Trilogy, contractors and tattoo artist. We brought down thanks to Hawaiian Airlines, surfboards, skateboards, clothes and put on a event for 150 kids on the outer islands serving food and having fun with the kids. Kids were coming out of the wood work.
In the past I was involved with Habit For Humanities. I also am involed with a mens group called Moi, men from all over Maui. We do a lot of funraisers to support youth camps in Saraigo Philippines and schools on the Rio Coco in Nicaragua Central America, and locally on Maui.
So there you go, I take my job very serious. Even after the close of escrow my job is never done, I am there to serve my clients to the best of my ability. So if you have any questions about Maui homes for sale or Maui condos for sale, please give me a call. With 41 years on Maui I can help you find that perfect property
