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.

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!

Tara is great! When she tells you she is going to get the job done she gets it done. She looks for alternate options for your specific situation and does everything to provide excellent service. I will definitely work with her again in the future.

Tara and her team took great care of me which was made tougher by the fact that I did the whole process (mortgage, house shopping, house buying, etc) from 1000 miles away. They were quick to answer all of my numerous questions and were so hopeful from day 1.

Tara Krieg and her entire team was the highlight of my last home purchase in September 2021. Her team is so professional and walked us through every step of the lending process for our new house. Tara also has has a number of ways to make your offer stand out in a competitive market and is willing to do ANYTHING to get you into your dream home. Thank you so much TK Team!

Most people in the beginning find themselves anxious about finding the right lender to match your needs. With the support my realtor, I was introduced to Tara. Tara was prompt in prequalifying me, and the fast turn around time with providing the lender with a the required documents, allowed me to close on my home in a short period of time. The staff were all a great value to helping me identifying required documents through an easy friendly portal. I highly recommend Tara, for your lending mortgage needs!

I'm very happy to write this recommendation for Tara Krieg.
I began working with her in June/July concerning a pre-approval for a loan.
She was very helpful and informative concerning all the paperwork I needed to gather.
She was always prompt to return calls and answer my seemingly endless number of questions! As a widow, this was my first time doing anything like this on my own and Tara was wonderful, and so very helpful throughout the whole loan process and during the eventual purchase of my home.
I would highly recommend Tara.

All of the people that worked with me from AmeriFirst were just great, as well.
Tara Arreguin deserves a special 'Thank You' for all her assistance, as well!

We tried to get financing with another company, but they weren’t able to help us. They didn’t seem to care either. Tara and her team worked really hard and got us excellent financing and we got a beautiful new home! I’d recommend her to anyone who wants hassle-free financing.

Tara and her team were amazing to work with! She got me set on the right path with her mortgage planning meetings and answered my many many questions! When my boyfriend and I were ready, the application process was very easy to follow and her team kept in contact while we tried to get a contract. This team is supportive, upbeat and wonderful to work with as a first time home buyer in a crazy AZ housing market!

Tara and her team were great. Everyone was very friendly and supportive. Being a new homeowner, the process was a little intimidating. Tara helped ease concerns and was always on top of what needed to be complete. There was a minor hiccup with some paperwork, but Tara's team had it resolved in a timely manner. I will be recommending Tara to family and friends! Thank you Tara and team!
