A prominent real estate agency that famously placed a ‘looking for a threesome’ newspaper ad welcomes the attention it still receives almost five years on.

Professionals Whiting & Co, in the trendy bayside suburb of St Kilda, raised eyebrows by placing a tongue-in-cheek full-page ad in their local publication in January 2017, which recently resurfaced online.

The attention-grabbing ad in the Caulfield Glen Eira and Port Phillip Leader shows a photo of auctioneer Marcus Peters and his two co-directors under the headline ‘Looking for a threesome in St Kilda?’.

This real estate full page ad placed in a local newspaper in 2017 continues to go viral

 ‘Anyone who knows anything about real estate know Marcus Peters, now you know where to find him,’ it states.

‘Teamed with the formidable duo of Robyn Rech and Dannie Corr at Whiting & Co and them a stellar group of professionals who know St Kilda and Bayside like no other.What else do you need to know?’

An eagle-eyed reader unearthed an old copy of the edition and shared the ad with Lords of Property, a satirical Instagram account dedicated to the real estate industry.

‘Not my dream threesie, https://theblackorchidlounge.com/ but I guess beggars can’t be choosers.Count me in,’ the post was captioned.

The post was inundated with comments from amused viewers.

‘We could definitely give them a run for their money,’ one man posted.

Another added: ‘Warms the soul.’ 

Locals still talk about the memorable ad, much to the delight of the agency’s auctioneer.

‘St Kilda is a cheeky place, a bit risque, where everyone wears their heart on their sleeve, but still has a laugh,’ Mr Peters told Daily Mail Australia.

‘You’ve got to have a bit of fun but at the same time, not mock anyone.’ 

The newspaper ad has resurfaced online, much to the delight of amused viewers 

He recalled how he had recently joined Professionals Whiting & Co at the time when an advertising guru came up with the catchy headline for the trio, who had almost 100 years of real estate experience between them. 

‘Everyone loved the ad as it created conversation,’ Mr Peters said.

‘The locals still laugh about it, even today.’
