Thank you in advance

Price range? Circle C or other SW areas might work, please see the sticky up top for the questions to answer for us to give good advice.

Or New Braunfels? It's close to San Antonio (which is a great city), not so far from Austin, probably with a lower cost of living. Even living in far south Austin would make for a rough commute. Come to think of it, living in San Antonio, especially the north side of the city, makes more sense for a thrice weekly commute to New Braunfels than living in Austin.

What is your definition of a great school? What is your budget? What did you "love" about Austin?

(why not New Braunfels?)

Dear salmuabe, we have visited both cities, but liked Austin better, since it has a better school district. beside my husband 's job in new braunfels is temporary ( about 6 months ) then he will be working full time in Austin .

Dear hound 109, by term Great Schools , i mean top rated School district with good reviews .the Budget is not limited. I have visited Austin 3 times before and i think it is a really awesome city which has great nature beauty , safety and low crime ( compere to other big major cities) and there is lots to do for family .

- Renting is smart.

- C'mon. What do you mean no limitation?? Give us a range.....or get a penthouse at the Four Seasons for 6 mos. & send the kiddo's to St. Stephens?

- Steiner is a god awful commute to NB. I'd be PO'd at my wife if she did that to me.

- Where is the office in Austin (after the 6 months)?

Or why not rent a GREAT home on one of the rivers in NB for 6 months & send them to St. Mary's Hall?


"no limitation for the price" ....Man i bet your mailbox is full.
