Do banks (i.e. mortgage lenders / brokers) take your rsus into consideration when they look at your compensation package of a public company since its basically like cash or are they only look at your base + 2 years of bonuses.

Again, the rsus are rsus of a very liquid large tech company. Assuming this matters in the banks consideration.
