Some have received over 40,000 hits.
“They really took my daring nature to a whole new place. I even had to perform a few of my own stunts. But judging from the results, it was more than worth it,” she said in a statement.
Beyond videos, Caston shares a Laguna Beach Real Estate Blog, offers Laguna Beach Picks of the Week, and comments on other real estate sites on MSN and Yahoo. All of this is geared toward keeping the buying and selling public well informed.
“At Coldwell Banker, I’ll be introducing new video excursions designed to give viewers a ‘you are here’ feeling,” she said, furthering her goal of helping home buyers shop online in a realistic format.
