I do everything I can to avoid them or not look at them or remove them however I've surrendered to the conclusion that this is impossible.

Find your demographic and market to them with whatever money you have for it.
Narrow it down because your money will not go far.
If you have an email list, make it into an audience. If the list is big and representative of your demographic, create a lookalike audience out of it.
Make sure to install a Facebook pixel in your site and remarket to whoever visits your site.

Facebook ads work for us.

You are on somebody's list and they will get you.
Resistance is futile.

Pretty sure either on mozilla or xhrome that an app called ad block exist
Many of the fb ad people are talking about how they hate it and love it

Yep, I've got adblock+, but it doesn't block the 'suggested posts' that are basically ads that in the past couple of months have been increasing in numbers.

The best for residential for us is

Women 31-60
In our geographical area
College educated
Then look for interests that match some of your customers interests:
For example: Interests in all things Interior Decor, maybe architecture, Arts, Music, travel, golf, tennis, running, dining, etc.

When running campaigns for realtors, you can target them by job title.
Realtor, Real Estate Agent, Broker etc.
If you already have a list of realtors, target them and also create a lookalike audience.
