The city of Baltimore has had some ups and downs in its housing market and many real estate agents in this area are looking for ways to help bring more people to qualify for mortgages. Kevin Seawright, a longtime Baltimore public financial leader is now working with a company known as RPS Solutions to change this outcome. RPS Solutions helps people who might otherwise be rejected by the big banks or other real estate agencies find housing they can afford and be eligible for financing even if their credit isn’t great. What Seawright wants to see is Baltimore’s communities become more diverse and allow people to move into safer neighborhoods from more dangerous ones. Learn more at Crunchbase about Kevin Seawright.
