After struggling to find a home years ago, a Hawaii local resumes his search for the ideal property.

Christian Slocum was raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, but moved to Maui nearly a decade ago to open two photography stores on the island. Christian was used to a lot of space on the Big Island, but he instantly fell in love with how accessible everything in on Maui-whether he wants to surf, dirt bike, or just watch a sunset - it's all just a short drive away. Three years ago Christian contacted his friend, Hawaii Life Agent Amanda Kittle, to help him find a home. Unfortunately he grew frustrated with the lack of inventory and he put his search on the back burner. Now, Christian is ready to finally purchase the perfect home that fits his wish list - one with a great kitchen, a yard for entertaining, and a separate space to set up his own photography studio.
