I need my caml query to return only text, e.g. now it's returning me this

<div class=ExternalClass104BBsdfEEDCEdddsf48C68C18AsdfB056FBsdfAB805>Real Content.....</div>

When I want Real Content..... only. Code I am using is can be found here

CAML isn't going to strip out that div as it's part of the column data. You are going to need to use a regex to strip that out after the data has been retrieved.
