Tara Bianco Krieg

Senior Mortgage Loan Officer AmeriFirst Financial, Inc. NMLS 215386 | AZ LIC 0912750
It may seem strange for a Senior Loan Officer with Amerifirst Financial Inc. to suggest that my primary job is to listen, but it’s true. My commitment to personalized customer service starts by fully understanding your specific needs and individual situation. This is not a job where ‘one-size-fits-all’.

I’m passionate about helping others achieve their dream of home ownership; I truly love what I do because it gives me the opportunity assist my clients in all the areas of their life that affect credit and finance. From credit education, to budgeting, to overall mortgage planning – I need to understand your personal situation before I can help provide a solution – and that’s why listening is step one.

My approach includes an evaluation of the big picture – your overall financial situation; I then build a mortgage plan that complements your goals. Whether you’re purchasing or refinancing the home of your dreams, my objective is to structure a mortgage finance plan that lowers costs and saves you money over the long term. With a full menu of loan programs to work from, I can tailor loans and services to meet your needs while providing you with the best possible customer service in the industry.

Licensed to provide mortgages and loan programs for home owners and buyers within Arizona and California, I have over 12 years’ experience in all aspects of real estate finance, real estate investing, mortgage planning, and business planning. My specialties include loan origination, credit education, mortgage related financial consulting and planning, and personal coaching of Junior Loan Officers.

I’ve found that my broad experience is very beneficial to clients when discussing all aspects of their finances. Prior to joining the mortgage industry exclusively ten years ago, I worked in credit card services (from collections to customer service) and in retail banking. My previous role was a management position at Washington Mutual.

Tara and the TK Team are AMAZING!! I have been recommending my clients to her for years and have had nothing but great success. This time around, it was my turn to be the client! My husband and I purchased a home and went through the TK Team for financing. Jeni and Tara made sure that all of our endless questions were answered and all of the details perfect. It was a super smooth transaction, lots of great communication, timely responses and top-notch customer service. I would highly suggest you consider TK Team and Tara Kreig for your next loan or refinance!! Thanks again, Team!!

We just moved from NY to Arizona and Tara and her team was recommended to us when we bought our home. Our experience with Tara was smooth and professional. Something like this can be a stressful situation, but Tara’s team handled everything promptly, professionally, and efficiently, and everyone on the team was friendly and gave a clear answer to all questions. We felt we were treated like family, and not just another customer. We will definitely recommend Tara and her team to family and friends.

Tara and her team did an excellent job supporting me through this process. It was my first time buying a home and I was very impressed how smoothly it went in large thanks to her team's effort and support. I'd strongly recommend working with Tara and her team as they will make the process as painless and simple as possible.

Tara and her team were amazing! They were with us every step of the way during the purchase of our home. Always had answers to all my questions, very flexible and great communication. Hopefully this is the last home we buy, but if not we will definitely use the TK Team again.

Tara is so welcoming and puts you at ease in an instant. It is never easy to talk about expenses and credit, but you feel like you are talking with a best friend.
Tara is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable all at the same time. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I have used Tara and her team for multiple purchases. The first purchase I was a 1st time home buyer. Second time I was selling and buying at the same time. Tara and her team did a great job of keeping track of all the moving parts and I will use her on my next purchase.

New Homeowners
Tara bent over backwards to help us move into our new home! She worked with our very specific needs around our mortgage, and within the tight time-frame of our move. She provided a credit that enabled us to handle all the various expenses of not just the home purchase, but the cross-country move to get to our beautiful home! Tara responded all hours of the night and day, even with the time difference while we lived on the east coast. This move simply would not have happened in the tight budget and time-frame constraints we had, without Tara spearheading the efforts to get us here!
