Kathy Vidakovics

Senior Mortgage Loan Officer | Akron Mortgage Loan Center - No Cash Transactions | NMLS ID: 850002

"’No’ is not an option.” Anyone that knows me knows that this is my philosophy. I have tried, tested, and made this belief come true in business and in life. Not accepting NO has meant figuring out how to overcome obstacles by digging in and crafting creative win-win solutions.

I've been in the mortgage business for over 20 years and have consistently been a top producer. With support from Independent Bank, we offer you a talented support team backed by a strong corporate office that strives for excellence. Our goal is to deliver an exceptional and easy experience for you, the customer. As your trusted Mortgage Lender, I can assist with your financial needs in all stages of life. I focus on creating a positive experience and building long-term relationships with each client. I am proud to say that all my business growth comes from referrals.

In addition to working diligently for my clients, I am actively involved with Leadership Akron Alumni and I am a Big Sister through the Summit County Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program. I am deeply concerned and committed to working for the welfare of children. I am also a regular attendee at events held in conjunction with the Greater Akron Chamber, Akron Roundtable, Summit County Home Builders Association, and the Akron/Cleveland Board of Realtors. Through these organizations I am able to stay in touch with current market trends and community needs. I actively seek ways to reach out to others by connecting, mentoring, and building relationships. I have been honored by receiving the following recognitions and awards: Greater Akron Chamber "30 for the Future," Akron SMEI Distinguished Sales & Marketing Award, and Leadership Akron - Barb Matthews Award.

I am proud to be a member of the Independent Bank mortgage team. My promise to you is to be your trusted Mortgage Lender throughout the loan process and beyond.

"Both Kathy and Jodi were extremely professional, knowledgeable, helpful, and responsive. I especially appreciated the thoughtful way the closing was accomplished in this time of pandemic, by sending a notary to our home, particularly since my husband is disabled. I would definitely recommend these agents and this company to anyone I know who is buying real estate."

"Kathy is amazing! We've worked with her for 15 years and can't imagine not having her as a partner! She makes a typical loan process feel custom and understands how to work outside the box to deliver the best customer service."

"Kathy and Jodi were wonderful to work with. I was so nervous about the mortgage process because I knew a lot had changed since we bought our first house 14 years ago. Kathy made the whole process so simple and easy. I will recommend working with her to anyone I know that is thinking about buying a home."

"Kathy made this process very smooth and comfortable for us. I will highly recommend her and Independent Bank to anyone I know in the market for a home."
