Sometimes when markets become tough and buyers need a break, things just need to be shaken up in sectors such as the housing market and commercial real estate. That’s why longtime accountant and civic leader Kevin Seawright has founded RPS Solutions in Baltimore. The goal of this company is to find homes that need renovating and can be found at more affordable rates for first-time buyers and those who need cheaper homes.
There have already been several success stories for Kevin Seawright’s new endeavor, including a young man he formerly mentored name Jerrel Brown who actually works with the Baltimore Housing Department. Brown hadn’t been able to purchase a home due to salary restrictions, but thanks to Seawright pointing him in the right direction with RPS, Brown can now plan to move his family into a renovated home.
