One of the more exciting firms in Baltimore, Maryland, is RPS Solutions LLC. The RPS stands for Real Property Solutions as they offer new homebuyers a path to owning their first home. The company was founded and is led by Kevin Seawright who has been a financial professional for many years. He is the firm’s chief operating officer and managing partner. In these roles he manages how the company operates each day as well as its overall strategic vision. Additionally, he oversees the many contractors that they work with when fixing up and/or building homes.
Kevin Seawright worked for the city of Baltimore for several years before he entered private industry in March 2011 when he got an executive position at Tito Contractors in Washington D.C. He also worked for two other organizations, Collington Episcopal Life Care Community and Newark Community Economic Development Corporation, before taking over at RPS Solutions.

The goal that Kevin Seawright has is to dramatically boost the number of homeowners in Baltimore. Right now less than half of the homes in Baltimore are owned by the person living in them. His goal is to increase this to 66%. They accomplish this goal in two ways. They buy homes, fix them up, and then sell them at affordable prices to new homebuyers. They also build new affordable homes that they then sell.
One of the Baltimore neighborhoods that Seawright and his company have had great success is Belvedere Square. The neighborhood used to be very unstable and filled with people renting their homes. After RPS Solutions invested in this area and then brought in homeowners it is now very stable and flourishing. People are taking pride in their homes and keeping up on the maintenance, something that hadn’t been happening before.
Another way that RPS Solutions and Seawright helps people is by connecting them to mortgage lenders. He has built a network of reputable lenders that offer competitive interest rates to homeowners. The goal is to get people in homes with a monthly mortgage that they can afford, something that is now happening more and more in Baltimore thanks to Seawright.
