Kevin Seawright’s Passion To Help First-Time Homebuyers

Kevin Seawright has spent his career in both public service and in the private market. He spent 10 years working for the city of Baltimore in a variety of supervisory roles including as the Chief Financial Officer and the Vice President/Deputy Chief Operating Officer.

He has developed into a financial and administrative expert who has a keen sense of strategic vision. Seawright is now leading RPS Solutions, LLC (Real Property Solutions) as the company’s Managing Partner and Chief Operating Officer.

The Goal of RPS Solutions is to revitalize communities in and around Baltimore by assisting first-time homebuyers to purchase their first home. In order to achieve this mission, RPS Solutions constructs and renovates residential properties that provide affordable housing to area residents.

According to Market Wired, Kevin Seawright oversees the day-to-day operations of the company. He also works with RPS Solutions network of 20 contractors who perform the work on the homes that the company buys and sells. His other duties at the company include ensuring organizational stability, property management, and overseeing the staff of RPS Solutions and its volunteers.

Seawright’s goal since arriving at RPS Solutions in 2015 is to increase the homeownership rate of Baltimore from its present rate of about 48% to 66%. A big step towards that goal was attained in May 2016 when they were able to fill the Belvedere Square neighborhood in Baltimore with first-time homeowners.

When asked about this accomplishment, Kevin Seawright said that it was rewarding to both him and the staff at RPS Solutions to help make this happen. He also said that home ownership is a big part of stable neighborhoods and sustainable neighborhoods.

Another recent accomplishment was when Seawright was able to assist the son of a long-time government colleague purchase his first home.

Jerel Brown’s mother worked with Seawright for several years in the Baltimore city government, and Jerel Brown now works for Baltimore as well. He didn’t think he would be able to afford a home but Seawright pointed him towards a home he had just renovated. Brown’s purchase of the home is another success for both Seawright and RPS Solutions.
