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 Bianco and her team made my home refinance process so smooth, paperless and painless. I would recommend them to everyone buying a home or financing.

Tara, is my preferred lender when it comes to my clients. I have often called her a "mortgage strategist," as she has an incredible mind for coming up with the best creative mortgage solutions. I just completed a refinance that significantly reduced my debt, more than I ever could have imagined, thanks to Tara's "big picture" view! The TK Team has always worked hard for my clients. Now, they've been an incredible asset to me!

Tara and the team were excellent! We had a rather complex situation involving selling one home while staggering the purchase of another home and building another and they found ways to make it all work. The whole team is super polite and responsive. I highly recommend!

This was my first time for purchasing and selling a home at the same time and I was very apprehensive about doing this at my age. But Tara and her team removed all of the pressure that was coming my way. They were always there to answer my questions. They were amazing!

I would recommend the TK team to anyone looking to buy a home or to refinance.

Being self-employed usually makes getting a home loan or refinance next to impossible but after going through nearly dozens of lenders I finally found Tara and was able to get approved for my refinance. Tara was able to work with me and go over my options and saved me over $500 a month! I would highly recommend the TK Team to anyone looking to get their home loan financed. Thank you!

I have worked with Tara and her team four times now. Twice with my Son, on his initial home purchase and refinance. Once on our refinance and now on my Daughter’s refinance. Each time they have done a great job, keeping us informed throughout the process and working hard to correct any problems along the way. They are easy to work with and I highly recommend them.

I cannot imagine a better person that could’ve helped me. I am elderly and sometimes need a little extra help. She always stepped right in and made it easy. She is so knowledgeable about the work she does and she is so friendly. I would recommend her to anybody.

Tara and her team were wonderful through the entire process. With the housing market being so crazy we often had to get offers together quickly and at odd times in order to compete with other buyers. She and her team were always available and made sure we knew how to get in contact with them. She and her team provided guidance regarding mortgage types, when to buy points and how much, and helped us get the house we really really wanted within our monthly budget. Thank you TK TEAM!!

Tough doing business with all the restrictions. We refinanced 2 homes at the same time with very little hassle.
This team stayed on top of everything, including me... and kept the process moving.
Everyone was professional, yet friendly. I would definitely utilize this team again, and recommend to all.

Tara takes the time to explain things thoroughly. She provides excellent customer service and is helpful and friendly. We have worked with Tara more than once over the years and continue to return to her for our home financing needs. She understands the market and the impact it has on interest rates and helped us determine the best time to lock in our rate based on current events. I highly recommend Tara and her team.
