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, 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 her staff do an excellent job of processing the paperwork and providing advice on the various products and their potential impact on your finances. Very friendly to work with. I would recommend Tara for your financial endeavors.

It was great working with Tara and her team! I am self employed and was unable to get a loan through a friend of mine who lacked the experience and knowledge working with self employed clients, but Tara's team had the experience and knew exactly what to do to get my refinance done. I was impressed with their system of signing docs and getting docs to them. It was very easy and they were always there to answer my questions. I would recommend Tara to anyone who needed a loan.

Physician and Professor
I made the decision to move down from Seattle to Phoenix in a matter of months. Tara and her team made, what seemed like an impossible task, possible!. I was so impressed with Tara's ability to work her magic and find numerous ways my complicated situation could work. This was 2 years ago. I recently Re-Fied with Tara and again was met with the same professionalism and patience (as my inability to complete forms was my fault). Tara and Sheena (another magical creature) worked together to hear me out and help guide me through the process. Thank you Tara and Team! You guys absolutely rock!

My husband and I met Tara Krieg through Rob Olson. Tara was amazing to work with when it came to buying and selling our homes. She has a genuine passion for finances and gave us all the options available to us so we could make the best decision possible for our family. Tara took the time to get to know us and we know that we can count on her to help us make wise financial decisions in the future.
