Tripp Mehew


I love everything about Hawai'i. I am passionate about Hawai'i real estate and advocate for the island lifestyle. The islands are known to balance people. That may sound a bit weird but if you have ever visited you will know exactly what I am talking about. 
It is an absolute privilege to live on this beautiful island and it is an honor to call Hawai'i home.

I am a proud member of the Hawai’i Life Real Estate Team. Myself and my team specialize in residential property, land sales, and second homes. We like to mix our local knowledge and laid back style with a professionalism and care for each transaction. Our foundations of Smart Marketing and Solid Representation work to connect buyers and sellers in Hawai’i, and around the world. It’s our responsibility to be informed. Our job is to protect your interests and investments; a job we take very seriously.

In 1990 I joined the USMC as a helicopter mechanic and flight crew member on CH-53 (those giant helicopters that hold 53 passengers). I was stationed at Kaneohe Bay on the island of Oahu. Our squadron frequently trained on Kauai and it was at that time that I fell in love with the tranquility and low key family style living that Kauai offers. The world class waves were also pretty amazing. My fondest military memory and most difficult work in my life was transporting fuel, medicine, generators, doctors, building equipment, and food to the people on Kauai after hurricane Iniki devastated the island in 1992. It was thousands of hours of flight time, 12-15 hour days, and almost three months straight of work without a day off. It was a very rewarding experience and I would not have changed it for the world. I am happy report Kauai is alive, thriving, and better than ever.

Prior to joining Hawai’i Life I owned and operated my own marketing and consulting business focussed on internet leads, sales, and brand growth. I love to bring those marketing skills and negotiating expertise to the real estate market here on Maui.

Born and raised in Cupertino, the heart of Silicon Valley, I am fully aware of the hustle and bustle of the tech life. Hawai'i is a great change of pace from that. As a child I had the unique opportunity to travel the world; from living in Singapore to visiting some of the far reaches of Malaysia. This experience helped my to understand and relate to different people and cultures. I apply this in my business and my life.

When I am not helping clients make paradise a reality you will find me surfing, practicing yoga, or playing guitar.
