Meet KP

Kevin Polakovich

Co-Founder & Loan Officer, NMLS 138361



Kevin is “old school.”  He believes that your handshake is as good as your word, customer service above all else, and you should  treat people the way you would want to be treated. Getting people financing is just a small part of what Kevin does. He works tirelessly along-side his team to make sure that they are going beyond just helping people finance a home, but most importantly, that they are setting their clients up for financial security, success, and the ability to build wealth through homeownership.


In 2001, Kevin made a major career change, shifting from sales and operations in an unrelated field, and dove into the mortgage industry. He liked the business, but he witnessed many industry practices that he wanted to change. So, he took matters into his own hands and started Treadstone Mortgage in 2003 with his longtime friend, Brendan O’Driscoll. They prioritized providing excellent customer service, sound advice, and hiring a top-notch support team with the same values. Adhering to those philosophies has propelled the company to be the #1 customer rated mortgage company in the state of Michigan.


Kevin and his wife, Kristin, have been married since 1996 and have two sons, one of whom attends Miami University and the other Catholic Central High School. Kevin is a graduate of Grand Rapids Catholic Central High School and Western Michigan University. In addition to being an active real estate investor, Kevin is an avid sports fan who enjoys coaching, golfing, fishing, and playing cards.


When you work with Kevin, he guarantees three things: clear and consistent communication throughout the process, no surprises ever (those are for birthdays not mortgages), and that you will close on time every time.
