Kevin Seawright is the Chief Operating Officer and Managing Partner of RPS Solutions LLC (Real Property Solutions). As leader of the company, he is passionate about helping low-income Baltimore residents obtain homeownership.
His company buys residential homes and then uses contractors and volunteers in order to rehabilitate them. Kelvin Seawright then partners with lenders in order to sell these homes to people at attractive interest rates and home prices. His ultimate goal is to increase the rate of homeownership in Baltimore from 48.3% to 66%.
The reason why Kevin Seawright does this work is because he strongly believes that homeownership builds strong and sustainable communities. Owning a home also helps people build wealth and provide a stronger sense of consistency in families.
He has helped many people buy their first home, including Jerel Brown who is the son of a longtime colleague of Kevin’s. Jerel works for the city of Baltimore and thought he would never be able to buy a home in the city on his salary. When he talked to Kevin he found out about a newly available property that he could afford and he is now a proud homeowner.
