2-Bedroom Apartment for Rent in Hawthorne

Posted on August 12, 2014 at 12:44pm 0 Comments

My bosses (a lovely married couple with two adorable daughters) are renting out the upstairs two-bedroom apartment in their two-family home in Hawthorne, NJ, right on the border of Hawthorne & Ridgewood. They are native English speakers who speak Spanish at home, so it would be an ideal arrangement for a Spanish-speaker. The Craigslist posting is in Spanish, but I have included the information in English for you here. If you are interested, please reply to the email address in the…

Hi Katie- Been a while Hope all is well!

Hi Katie! :)

I’m hosting a speed-networking style event in Paramus on the 9.16.13 called ‘At Your Service’.  (You can check out the infographic for some info - 

All the Young Pros who go get a $20 Bonefish Grill Gift Card!  That way, you can grab yourself dinner after work, drinks for during the event, or save it for another day – your choice. 

Tickets are $10, but if you message me at, I will give you a code so you can go for $5.  The $20 Bonefish Grill Gift Card is still part of the deal, plus you’ll get to network with some awesome YPs and Service Providers (think personal organizer, nutritionist, psychologist, financial advisor, etc; all those people it’s good to know).

Hi Katie...:) you looked so friendly I thought I should add you lol :) My little 10 year old auditioned for "Annie" and has developed a love for theater so I instantly thought, how cool to meet someone on the inside so I'd maybe actually know where and when shows/auditions are being held, lol.

Nice meeting you last week - we totally would have won trivia if the other teams didn't blatantly cheat.
