Tara Bianco Krieg

Senior Mortgage Loan Officer TK Team Lending NMLS 215386 | AZ LIC 0912750
It may seem strange for a Senior Loan Officer 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, 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 blew me away from our first meeting to discuss our options. Her ability to answer any of my odd questions on the fly showed her experience and vast knowledge of the marketplace. She also walked me through up to date numbers and forecasts to set some expectations on how things might look from when I started the process, to when I may end the process. Her team was easy to work with, responsive, and was available to provide help even outside of normal business hours. I would absolutely use her and her team again.

Tara and her team did an amazing job from start to finish. We worked with her on several refi’s and home loans including an investment property. Their communication during the document collection process is very immediate and professional. Nothing was missed or overlooked. I would recommend Tara’s team to anyone!

Tara Arreguin on Tara Krieg’s team was phenomenal to work with. Everything went so smoothly and quick. We locked in the rate at just the right time. Closed in a short period of time - approx 30 days.

Honestly it was the BEST experience I have ever had in refinancing a home…and I have done this several times.

Thank you so much!!!

Tara was recommended by one of your employees as a hard worker, efficient, and the best of the best. I would like to state, she lived up to that expectation. We have purchased several houses & this process was the fastest, centered around the loan officer with a friendly caring relationship. Very different from the relationships with other lenders, who represented themselves as "The bank or Lender".
Hopefully this is our last purchase; however Tara will get the repeat business if this changes.
Once again thank you Tara - your time was much appreciated.

We started to look for houses to be closer to work and have more room for our growing family. The team we initially worked with told us there was no possible way for us to afford the houses we were looking at without first selling our own or having a contingency. In today's market, selling first is a huge risk, and having any contingency means getting rejected.

Our realtor recommended Tara's team as another option. Not only did they have a program that allowed me to make offers on the houses I wanted, they provided me with extra security to feel safe doing so.

I truly cannot thank this team enough. We got our dream home, in a location we love. This absolutely would not have been possible without them.

I just completed the purchase of a home in Arizona and I can’t say enough about Tara Krieg and the TK Team at AmeriFirst Financial. Inasmuch as I was an out of state buyer their communication and response time to all my questions and concerns was excellent. All fazes of the process were handled in a timely fashion. It was great that most documentation was handled electronically. Tara and her team met all the deadlines and we were able to close on time. I would definitely recommend Tara Krieg and The TK Team to my friends and family.

Tara and her team were absolutely fantastic. Lending can be really difficult especially if you are self employed. Her team did an amazing job for us and we could not be happier. Thank you!
