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.

I can't say how awesome Tara and her group were. They made our move go very smooth and were so supportive every step of the way. We would highly recommend Tara to anyone buying or selling a home and will certainly be calling her next time we buy a home.

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!

New homeowner :)
Tara is awesome! And that's an understatement. Not only is Tara proficient and knowledgeable, she's super friendly. We worked with her to purchase a home while living in the midwest. She made the experience easy and enjoyable. It was such a relief knowing that we had someone we could totally trust on the the other end when we lived so far away. My husband and I would recommend Tara and Amerifirst Financial to anyone and if the need presents itself, Tara will be the first person we call!

Tara and her team were so great to work with. It had been a long time since we had purchased a home and they took us step by step! We bought our home from a builder directly, no realtor involved. We were a little hesitant about not having one but Tara and her team helped us along the way! They stayed in contact with us on a regular basis and always were available for my phone calls. Highly recommend!

I cannot reccomend the TK team highly enough! Tara took the time to help us figure out how to get our credit where we wanted it. It was obviously very important to her that we get the best deal possible. Then her entire team worked very hard to get our deal closed very quickly - even ahead of schedule! They were all really helpful and professional and made us feel like we mattered, not just another "sale". I love our home but wouldn't hesitate to use them again if for some reason we had to move.

Words cannot even describe the attention we were given and the simplicity of this process! We Refinanced our home for the first time and the process was simple, quick, and wonderful! Of course we had many questions since we didn't know how this process works and every time I called I was welcomed, my questions were answered, and I felt comfortable knowing and trusting Tara and her team. You are ALL Awesome and we are grateful to have met you! Thank you to the Piccirrilli's for referring us and now we can refer everyone we know! Thank you again for the smoothest process ever!

Tara exceeded all expectations and is very knowledgeable about the industry. She spent a lot of time helping me understand the process of buying a home and was there guiding me throughout the entire process. This meant a lot to me. I would recommend her for anyone purchasing a home, especially 1st time home buyers. I wouldn't of been able to do it without Tara and the TK team!

Thanks!!
