Wailea Maui Hawaii


Aloha my name is Steven Nickens

Maui real estate has been a lifelong passion of mine and I have received numerous awards as a Top Producer in my 20 year career. I am blessed working and living on Maui for the past 41 years. Prior to real estate on Maui, I was a Maui contractor and past owner of Nickens Interiors. 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.
