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.

Tara Bianco and her team ARE AMAZING!! They really know their stuff! Not only did we get the home of our dreams we walked away with so much knowledge about the entire home buying/mortgage process. That to me is priceless! They all are very professional but they really make you feel like family.

This is my second time working with Tara. All I can say is if your not working with Tara already, then switch to her ASAP. Tara and her team are fantastic. They are attentive, communicate effectively, and truly care about your future. I originally bought a house with my sister/brother in law, and when it was time for me to buy my own place, I quickly reached out to Tara. The process is very painless, and their team makes it very convenient for any type of work schedule. 10 out of 5 Stars!!!

Buying my home had a few hiccups along the way; even so, Tara and her team rose to the challenge by staying on top of what needed to be done. Tara and her team were very helpful and responsive. I highly recommend using AmeriFirst as your mortgage broker.

We had been to two mortgage companies, before we were fortunate enough to be directed to Tara and her Team, from Amerifirst Financial Inc. If I were allowed I could tell you who NOT TO GO TOO! We had reached the end of the road, and had been misled , and were left hopeless, in an attempt to refiance our home. It took the first company 8 weeks, to offer us nothing in the equity for our home, and actually wanted to charge us for the closing, thus walking away with nothing. They undercut the value of our home. Company number 2 was the actual company holding the mortgage, so we thought it would be easier and faster. We were so wrong. The value they had for our home was a little higher but the amount of red tape and lack of assistance was unbelievable! We were still left with very little equity to do the upgrades for our home. THEN, Tara was recommended to us by a neighbor, attorney. He said Tara is your GO TO PERSON. From the First meeting with her, to the day of closing was less than 28 days. Our home was then appraised at the CORRECT FAIR MARKET RATE. We were able to do the entire process, without complications, and pay off all DEBT, and still have Savings Galore! Thank you all, TARA and Team ! BEST MORTGAGE COMPANY EVER!

I was so impressed with the Amerifirst Financial Inc. team. They were very professional and easily answered my questions concerning my loan. I wanted to keep my out of pocket for closing and a down payment to a minimum since I am retiring in two months. They offered several options and actually came up with a way to move my loan through more quickly with less money out of my pocket. They team is so friendly and nice. I highly recommend you work with them if you need any type of loan!

We highly recommend Tara Bianco Krieg for your mortgage needs. We were looking to refinance our “unconventional” home mortgage, which can be a difficult thing when trying to find a lender and appraiser, but Tara and her AMAZING team made it happen, made it quick, and made it easy. We had some issues with the appraisal company, immediately let Tara know what was happening, and she took care of things right away. Tara is great....so friendly, professional, and gets things done!!! 💚
