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.
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.

After a horrible experience with another finance company, I was referred to Tara by a friend that was also in the process of refinancing. My experience with Tara and her staff was amazing! They were helpful, attentive, and always willing to provide the information and assistance to guide me through the refinance process.
Communication was what I lacked with my previous finance company. This was very frustrating because for weeks after the initial application and approval process, the only answers I got were "we're working on it" and "I'm sorry this is taking so long." It became so painstakingly slow that I finally pulled the plug and went with AmeriFirst. Communication with AmeriFirst was never an issue. There was always someone to answer questions and provide information on exactly where we were in the approval and closing process. It was a pleasure working with Tara and her staff and absolutely, I would recommend Tara Krieg and AmeriFirst for financing or refinancing needs.

Tara did an incredible job with my mortgage. Because I am a business owner and retired Air Force, obtaining a VA loan can be very tricky. Tara guided me through the process and helped me make changes to my business practices in order to qualify for a significant loan. On top of that, I obtained a fantastic rate - 2.375% on a 30 year!
