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.

Oh Em Gee!!!
Words cannot even begin to express the gratitude my wife and i have for Tara and her team. They have made a dream of ours become a reality. And can i say that they went above and beyond to see that we received the best, fastest and most efficient care with purchasing our first home. The process was so smooth that it kind of reminded me of going thru an In N Out or a Chick-fil-A Drive thru. They hear and care about every word and request you have and/or need. They are extremely polite in every part of the process. And it felt like we were approved in less than a month. We love Tara and her crew. Thank you all so much for helping the Gibbs family make our dreams and memories come to life in our first home. We are sooooooo happy! ❤️

We just moved here from California and desperately needed housing quickly. Our realtor, Katie Darby, contacted Tara and asked her to do a V.A. loan pre-qualification quickly. Tara accomplished that task in a matter of hours. Others had told me it could take 3 weeks or more. This allowed us to make an offer and get an acceptance from the seller in about 15 hours.
My wife and I were so amazed we could hardly believe. This all took a tiny fraction of the time we expected. Next, Tara sat down with us right away and gathered all the information needed to move forward with the remaining processing and on to closure. We moved into our beautiful home on Friday March 1, 2019. Tara's entire team helped us keep things moving at an amazingly rapid pace. Her collaboration with our realtor was smooth and efficient. It was like they had been working together for a year.
Tara is super knowledgeable and very caring. She knew we needed help fast and she delivered!
I would recommend Tara, and her team, to anyone.

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.
