First-time homebuyers sometimes find certain city markets difficult to enter, including the city of Baltimore. So real estate expert and innovator Kevin Seawright has launched a new company aimed at renovating and revitalizing underdeveloped areas of the city with inexpensive but quality housing.
That company is RPS Solutions, a real estate broker and asset management firm that obtains both government and private sector contracts to facilitate building projects. Seawright said that new homebuyers and those with budget restrictions shouldn’t be left out of the market, and with this new company he hopes to make the home buying process much easier and affordable for them.
One man who was mentored by Seawright as a youth has already benefited from RPS’s program. This man is Jerrel Brown, a member of the Baltimore Housing Department who has found buying a home difficult even under his current salary.
He was delighted to hear about the new program that allows people in his income category to buy renovated homes and has expressed his gratitude to Seawright for opening the doors for him.
Crunchbase said that Kevin Seawright has worked with several major eastern cities including Washington D.C., New York, Newark, Baltimore and Atlanta in strategic planning and budgeting for development projects. Seawright is a certified accountant who got his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Almeda University’s financial school.Read more: Kevin Seawright Talks RPS Solutions LLC on The Larry Young Morning Show
