Nín hǎo! I took a guess that you speak Mandarin as I speak Japanese and some Mandarin as well. My girlfriend is from China too. If you would like some help finding a rental home and a home to purchase, I will be happy to assist you. And if you are more comfortable speaking whichever dialect of Chinese you speak, I can probably get an agent to help us or translate.

I have a great team of lenders, inspectors, lease agents, etc. to help us out, and do not charge anything for my services. Please contact me if you would like further assistance. And of course, Happy New Year! (Xīnnián hǎo!)

Xièxiè, Joe

Not a bad idea, renting at first. Schools are always high on the list for children especially younger ones. There a website you can use. The school districts in the area are
Austin ISD, Eanes ISD, Round Rock ISD, Cedar Park ISD, Dripping Springs ISD, Pflugerville ISD, Lake Travis ISD. DOn't be confused by the total ISD rating. Drill into the actual class your child will be attending.
