                                       Happy THANKSgiving

                                     Dear Christine,

                                     In this always slightly off-kilter world in which we live, it is easy
                                     to get caught up in "more." We teach ourselves to multi-task so
                                     we can try to get the 200 things on our to-do list checked off,
                                     scratched through, and make room for the next thing. We
                                     surround ourselves with gadgets and people and processes to help
                                     us get it all done so we can live fuller lives and experience more
                                     and be more and have more. Like more is the Holy Grail and if we
                                     can ever get to the big, ultimate MORE, we will have arrived.

         Christine Prater, Realtor   It is easy to get caught up in this - I do it often myself. But every
           Moreland Properties       once in a while, I get a gentle reminder from a friend or family
              (512) 413-5855         member, or just some still small voice, that more is not the        answer. I don't have to be everything to everyone to be
                                     something. And when I remember that, the amount of pressure

                                                                                                     Page 2 of 4

              In This Issue     spinning and building inside of me just stops. And I remember
            Tax Credit Chart    that I live in a beautiful world in a beautiful city surrounded by
             Tax Credit Info    the beauty of every day life. And in this life, I have a choice to
              Meet Chelsea      make. I can choose to chase more. Or I can choose better.

                                Better is not more. In fact, better is often is the opposite of
            Quick Links         more. Better, for me anyway, looks like a little less, but actually
        My Featured Listings    done quite well. This is true in my home, in my friendships, and
             Search MLS         in my business. I could close 100 houses a year and have "more,"
            Austin Stats        or I could close 30 and have "better." I choose better. Sure I could
          Spicewood Stats       make more money the other way, but when I choose 30, I get to
            Market News         sleep well at night, love what I do, build real relationships with
          Mortgage Rates        each and every client, and honor my family in having something
           Tax Credit Info      left at the end of the day for them.
         Tax Credit Chart
                                I want to get up every day and choose better. Better means good
                                things like being a better person, friend, Realtor, and wife. So I
             First time         choose joy instead of just surviving.... I choose peace instead of
          Homebuyer Tax         pressure....and I especially choose thankfulness instead of
       Credit extended and      therapy.
       other buyers can now
        cash in as well.  See   So today, I am thankful. I am thankful for each and every one of
            more here.          my clients, friends, and family that led me towards better. I am
                                thankful to each of you who have allowed me to serve you in
                                some small way and made me a little better every time. And
                                thankful to each of you who have trusted me to serve someone
                                else you really care about, because that is the ultimate

                                So thank you, think better, and Happy Thanksgiving!
                                As always, I love being your resource for all things real estate
                                related.  If you don't see what you need in this newsletter or on
