ReadyStageMove™ welcomes Sue Lowry to the RSM™ Community! 

As a Professional Organizer, her skills include identifying the root causes that lead to clutter and disorganization within one's living space. She works with each client assessing their needs and developing a "clutter control plan of action" that allows for a stress-free environment - whether it's a closet, bedroom, basement or garage. Sue became certified as an Executive Coach during her 20 years in Human Resources. She is able to use that skill and help her clients take control of their surroundings, their time, their paper, and their systems for the rest of their lives. 

Sue is also an Accredited Home Stager, professionally preparing properties for the market place. Her company can do as much or as little of the work as the client needs or wants. 

Sue's lives by this philosophy: 

I know that ... 

... I enjoy helping others, 
... using products Made in America, is good for business and, 
... this life is temporary, so let's live it joyfully.

. . . that RSM's™ Strategic Partners also have their own businesses? Here's what they've been up to . . .


Many times a home seller is able to "do it themselves", when preparing their home for sale, once Bernadette has completed her comprehensive "Walk & Talk" consultation and provided them with a list of "To Do's" before it goes on the market. After the seller has completed their homework, Bernadette will come back to work with the photographer "styling" the property -- usually only needing to make small adjustments -- in order to get it ready for its "close-up", capturing the perfect MLS photograph. 

As Professional Development Director of NAPO - NNJ, Jean Marie has arranged for guest speaker, Judith Kohlberg to present "Creating Your Digital Estate Plan" on Monday, June 22, 2015 at the American Red Cross in Fairfield, NJ. Consider this . . . what if you suddenly died or become incapacitated? Would your executor, power of attorney, heirs or family know about the existence of your "invisible" on-line and web-based accounts, the ones with no statements or paper trail? Attend this one-hour presentation and find out how to answer questions such as these. For registration information contact Jean Marie at

See what Maria had to  say about the 2015 spring housing market where she was featured on the Nightly Business Report on WNET last month. Here's a short clip:

Holiday Greetings from ReadyStageMove™  


The spring holidays are upon us and no matter what you celebrate -- Easter, Passover or simply "Spring Break", now is the time for some quiet reflection     . . . focusing on only those things that are most important and then simply discarding the rest. This month's featured article, "A Hop, Skip and a Junk" talks about a streamlined way of ridding yourself of all the unwanted/unneeded "stuff" that prevents you from cherishing what means the most in your life. 

Spring is the time to also reflect on "growing" your business, so perhaps this is the right moment to make ReadyStageMove™ part of your new and improved business model. As a member of the RSM™ community, you will quickly discover the secrets behind the system can help you develop and grow effective strategic partnerships. Now is the perfect time to work your business smarter -- using this unique and creative team approach to marketing and selling homes. 

Don't wait, "spring" into action today -- consider attending a ReadyStageMove™ upcoming class, webinar or social event. 

Buy, buy says the junk in the shop window; why, why says the junk in the yard. ~ Paul McCartney

Spring is a time to reflect . . . on what means the most to you,

"Hop, Skip and a . . . Junk"
by Jean Marie Herron   

I accidentally said this recently, "It's a hop, skip and a junk . . ." Of course what I meant to say was, "It's a hop, skip and a jump away" -- but "junk" was what came out of my mouth. Then I thought to myself that when it comes to rapidly organizing a house, often hiring a junk removal company is the way to go.

I've been in client situations where we've cleaned out huge portions of clutter in less than four hours for under $700 and every one of my clients reported that it was a great investment, an incredible time saver and the psychological lift that they needed to get their home back in shape.  

I'm not suggesting you throw out things that have value (sentimental or financial), but if your home is full of items that simply need to go to the garbage such as old hoses, overly-loved stuffed animals, scratched up artwork, heavily faded curtains, school papers from days gone by, chipped and cracked plates, appliances that don't work, construction material that are moldy, old-style televisions, etc.... then it is time to consider the "hassle factor." This even includes "old brown furniture", the kind of furniture that donation centers aren't even accepting any more. Don't worry that you may be sending items to the landfill, because a reputable junk service recycles, before they discard.

If you decide that this spring it is time to hop, skip and just junk it, make sure you've thoroughly checked through your discards for any treasures, such as money and jewelry. Hopefully, you didn't hide these kinds of things in your "stuff" but many people do!

And if you need a recommendation for a reputable junk company, I can help with that too!

Pictured above is one of my typical basement clean-outs for a client of mine who lost her mom. My client lived in Florida and did not have the time nor energy to wade through what appeared to be mostly junk and  knew that these belongings of her mother's had definitely been through their life cycle. We pulled out the important stuff and then it was only a "hop, skip and a jump to bring in the junk company . . .
