Kevin Seawright is the founder of a joint venture partnership called RPS Solutions. The enterprise is based in Baltimore.
The purpose of RPS Solutions is to effectively address the problem of providing affordable housing opportunities in the largest city in the state of Maryland. The concept is that the overall strength of the city will be enhanced when more affordable housing is made available to its residents.
At the heart of the solutions developed through RPS is home ownership by individuals and families who otherwise would not be able to own residential property in Baltimore. Seawright has established a specific goal for the venture. He inte3nds to exceed the current home ownership rate in Baltimore, which is just above 48 percent.
In overseeing the enterprise, Seawright has targeted specific neighborhoods in the city. For example, the company is focused on developing affordable residences in the Belvedere Square neighborhood in Baltimore.
RPS renovates existing properties. This has the dual purpose of providing people in Baltimore with affordable housing options and also enhances the overall value of a neighborhood. Where RPS undertakes renovations, a neighborhood typically experiences a decrease in the overall crime rate and an increase in interaction between residents of a particular sector.
Seawright’s own professional background dovetails well with his work at RPS. Seawright is a project management and accounting professional. He has spent a good part of his career in these arenas.
One particular aspect of Seawright’s background has been invaluable to his role at RPS. He has been highly involved in real estate development, not only in Baltimore but in Washington, D.C., as well.
In addition to real estate development Seawright has worked for governmental agencies on the local level. He has also been involved education during his professional career as well, including in the city of Baltimore.
