Welcome to Private Islands Online Australia
Privates Island Online is a niche real estate company that specialises in selling islands and resorts and leisure properties. Richard and Narelle Vanhoff have been in the island sale business since 2004 and as an individual team have an impressive sales record.
Richard Vanhoff has had diverse business background with his early career starting in the media working with one of Australia’s leading TV stations and then eventually moving to radio. Through these two major media agencies, Richard met the crème of international artists and personalities.
This provided access to the rich and famous, which brought with it a plethora of contacts that inspired the development of his real estate career with his wife Narelle.
Richard and Narelle lived on one of Australia’s best-known resorts, Hamilton Island, for over 17 years with the Beatles George Harrison as one of their neighbours on Hamilton Island. Richard again was introduced to some of the world’s best musicians and international celebrities. This furthered his passion for sales and in particular islands and island resorts, using these well-established contacts over the last 20 years as a foundation of his client network.
Richard has received many international and Australian awards for achieving the highest gross commission sales, which included the sale of Great Keppel Island, Pumpkin Island, Long Island & Bamborough Island just to name a few. As a single real estate agent, Richard can comfortably state that he has sold and negotiated the sale of some of the most exotic island properties in the Pacific.
