Maui is one of the top destination spots on the planet.  This will always be a driving factor the will keep the Maui market stable. We have seen an increase in sales in homes and condos with prices finally finding the market correction in price.  All in all, the market has continue to level out and 2013 will bring about a much more normal course.

Getting Started

•1.      Find the right representative. The experience and knowledge of a dedicated real estate professional can be priceless. A good Realtor® forms a powerful team with his/her clients to ensure a smooth, successful, stress-free sale.

•2.      Determine your needs/wants for the sale and for your new home. Selling your primary residence can be tricky because you must simultaneously think about where you would like to buy. First, weigh your priorities - selling price is certainly important, but having a quick and efficient sale can often be a fair trade-off for a slightly lower offer. Talk to your agent and make sure you are both on the same page about your personal priorities. At the same time, you should be compiling a needs/wants list for the home you will buy. Chances are good you will have to act fairly quickly when your house sells, so any preparation you can do in advance will serve you well.

•3.      Prepare your house for showing. Unprepared homes can create sales disasters. Your home will never get as much attention from potential buyers as when it is first listed, so it's essential to clear clutter, clean, make repairs, and put your home's best foot forward. Don't "open for business" until your home is ready to be seen as favorably as possible.

•4.      Get the lowdown on the Maui  market. Being realistic about your market is the key to a smooth sale. You can attempt to do it yourself and save a few thousand dollars, but there's no substitute for a professional real estate representative when it comes to local market knowledge.

•5.      List away! Lots of photos and online exposure are the key to getting a good response for your listing.  So there you go, lets get busy and get your Maui home or condo sold.

Testimonials for Steven Nickens

  • Sandra Fräfel

    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 trepeditious 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 save 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! Roger and Sandra Frafel, Wailea Maui

  • Rich and Kalinda Winter

    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, deep faith and 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.
