It's all in the DETAILS!

Real Estate Agent with Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty

NEW CONSTRUCTION, North Shore Long Island!

Here's my first video of a NEW CONSTRUCTION my husband, president of J Caruso INC, and well-known  European skillful builder, recently completed. I tried to capture a unique view, featuring many of the details (moldings, ceilings, kitchen cabinetry, tile work...) , I hope you enjoy it.

I'll be looking to perfect my skills, and plan on doing other video editions. If you have any suggestions please don't hesitate to list them in your comments. Thank You.



If your looking to buy new construction, or plan on buying a fixer upper in need of renovation, choose a Realtor who has the experience, know how, and connections to creating your dream home.

Thanks Roger, I need to do theirs showcasing his other styles, it's good for potential buyers to see rather than having them come to my house.

Hi Dorie, this home wasn't on the market for long, it sold before completion as that often is the case with his constructions.

Debb, Thanks for all your help and support! I still need to work on the shaking so I'll play with the size of my photos on the next round. My husband saw it and said, "how can I pull it up on my phone?" he's not to computer tech....his famouse line when infront of technology "El, howa you do this?". He wants to show it to his friends, just wait till I get better! LOL

Hi, Ellen...that's a beautiful home. Your husband does nice work. I think you also did a great job on the slideshow presentation, but I do have some feedback. I was trying to really study the detail and the pictures changed so quickly. Can you slow them down. I know I could pause it, but I didn't. 

Mar 03, 2016 10:27 AM
Ellen Caruso

Debbie, Thanks for your feedback....I will try to pause it a little more, I wasnt sure how long a video should be to keep someones attention. Im still learning iMovie...I'll get better!

Absolutely stunning details and workmanship Ellen Caruso!  My only suggestion on the video would be to soften the transition just a bit.  Just when you zoom in, the harsh snap to the next slide happens.  Otherwise, you have done a remarkable job on this presentation.

Got to learn some of those filters.... Have his next 2.5 MM home nearly complete and I'll make a new video.
