What is ReadyStageMove™?
Once upon a time in New Jersey, a REALTOR®, a professional organizer and a home staging specialist came together and developed a synergistic approach to getting a home sold. Together, they realized that their passions and methodologies, when combined, enabled home sellers to minimize their stress and maximize the return on their most important investment. They created a system to help others in their fields do the same and that’s how ReadyStageMove™ was formed.
The original founders of ReadyStageMove™ (RSM) are Bernadette Flaim, Jean Marie Herron and Maria Rini, with almost 40 years of combined experience to the real estate, organizing and staging industries. The homes they partnered on sold in less time and for more profit, even in the most difficult of markets. The efficient methods they employed in selling, organizing and staging became the ReadyStageMove™ System, which they implemented when either working together or with other strategic partners, as part of a team approach of real estate agent, home stager and professional organizer.
Today, ReadyStageMove™ is owned and operated by Bernadette Flaim, who now works with a variety of successful Realtors™ and other valued strategic partners throughout the Northern New Jersey area. They continue to work with Maria Rini, from the Welcome Home Team, who often joins her associates for live public presentations.

The ReadyStageMove team came to my rescue in the spring of 2014. My godmother had passed away and I was responsible for getting her co-op apartment ready for sale. Jean Marie Herron, Bernadette Flaim, and Maria Rini worked together to organize, stage and sell the apartment. I was amazed by their collaborative approach. Although I was ultimately responsible for completion of the project, there was very little work for me to do. I was blessed to have this dream team in my life at an extremely difficult time. Through their efforts, the apartment was turned into a warm, charming space and was sold within 2 months.

I recently began to think about downsizing to prepare my home for sale. Although I am not planning to move in the immediate future, I am seriously considering a move in the near future. I called upon the ReadyStageMove team to assist me in setting up a plan. The result has been phenomenal. I am once again beginning to enjoy my home as Jean Marie helps me to purge and streamline my possessions. JM has taught me how to cherish the memories, live in the moment and let go of that which no longer serves a purpose in my life. Through her wisdom and support, I have learned to discard the useless and donate the useful. My home is beginning to reflect who I am at this time in my life and I am at peace.
Bernadette is like a breath of fresh air. She works with me selecting items I own and reworking them to create a new and updated look; she has helped me to appreciate my personal treasures and the memories associated with them. Every time she enters my home with her magic wand, I begin to feel the excitement of a new homeowner.
Now when I am ready to make a move, all the hard work will be done. In fact, I am beginning to wonder if I really want to move!
