Simplifying and implementing complex business concepts, generating referrals
Kevin Polakovich, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, made a major career change in 2001, shifting from sales and operations in an unrelated field into the mortgage industry. Although he liked this new industry immediately, he witnessed several practices he wanted to change. To do so, he started Treadstone Mortgage in 2003 with his longtime friend, Brendan O’Driscoll. They focused on providing excellent customer service and hiring only ‘A’ players that held the same values. Today, Kevin is one of the top loan officers in the country based on units closed and is the top loan officer in Michigan. More than 85 percent of his business is purchase-oriented. Kevin joined The CORE Training in 2015 and became a coach in 2017. Kevin and his wife, Kristin, have been married since 1996 and have two teenage sons. His hobbies include golfing, fishing, playing cards, and investing in real estate.
