Luxury real estate ads banned for being too risque

Facebook, X, and local print publications have refused to run ads deeming them insensitive. Hurt feelings ensue.

Houston, Texas Apr 1, 2024 ( – In an industry known for its sophistication and refined aesthetics, English Blackwell Realty Group finds itself at the center of a storm as its recent luxury real estate advertisements are deemed too risque for mainstream and banned from social media and print advertising platforms even though it hasn’t violated stated terms of service.

The groundbreaking campaign, aimed at luxury sellers and buyers, is designed to challenge traditional norms in the real estate sector. However, the campaign’s boundary-pushing visuals have raised eyebrows among social ad platforms and print publications alike.

The 13 custom designed and color branded ads tackle real problems people have and reasons to buy or sell, combining punchy headlines and dark humored visuals–a bold departure from conventional real estate advertising. While some applaud the campaign’s innovative approach, others argue that it veers too close to the edge of what is deemed acceptable for mainstream audiences.

Jamion Blackwell, the founder of the luxury realty group defends the campaign, stating, “Our intention is to push the boundaries and present luxury real world problems that we can help solve. Luxury living is not always about amazing views, dinner parties, and multi-car garages. Life gets in the way sometimes and the best one can do is roll with it with a sense of humor and grace.” We love minimalism and our ads reflect it.

Despite the controversy, English Blackwell Realty Group remains steadfast in its commitment to redefining the luxury real estate landscape. The company invites a thoughtful dialogue about the evolving nature of luxury, design, and the intersection of creativity with non-traditional advertising and methods.
