Rashaad Mayes, a Florida transplant from Jacksonville, is no stranger to the Baltimore and Maryland market. After graduating from Florida A&M University with a degree in architecture, Rashaad moved to Maryland and began his real estate journey in Baltimore City. Starting a small architectural design business, Rashaad was able to assist homeowners and investors with design concepts and space planning for their real estate projects. While doing so, Rashaad began investing in the Baltimore market, acquiring his first duplex investment property in 2017. After a couple bumps and bruises, Rashaad was able to successfully complete his first rehab!
In 2018, Rashaad left his full-time job with GE Aviation to work for a local Real Estate Investor as an acquisition’s manager. There, he learned the ins and outs of what it takes to run a real estate business, flip houses, and invest in properties. The bulk of Rashaad’s experience in real estate came while serving as an acquisition’s manager, which responsibilities included marketing, property evaluations, financial analysis, negotiations, contracts, agent/client relations, settlements, and brokering assignments.
In April of 2019 Rashaad started his own real estate investing company, Mayes Capitol Investments, that invest in single and multi-family rental investments around the Baltimore area. To date, he has helped facilitate over 50 real estate transactions as an investor. Rashaad pursued his real estate license to assist others that wish to not only learn more about real estate but help them invest in real estate as well. He believes having experience as an active investor and agent translates well while consulting and facilitating clients through their own real estate endeavors.
Rashaad has a deep love for the city of Baltimore and the opportunities he believes the city possesses currently and in the near future. In his spare time, real estate is still the main focus. Rashaad is usually tending to rehabs, performing maintenance on his properties, meeting contractors, or sharing knowledge about investing.
Rashaad also loves to fly small airplanes, fish, and watch any and everything football related!
