If your big4 then good luck. I just got a mortgage in the same bracket. I went with JPMorgan. 3% with 20% down. With independence and trying to explain equity partner K1s to mortgage loan advisors the chances of getting one of those sweet 2.5% loans is slim. JPM Private banking saved me most of the hassle you’d have with a smaller outfit.

Ally has a pretty easy-to-use online tool you can use to see real time rates and benchmark against for other banks. Rates are in the 2.875 range with no points for a jumbo, depending on the day, but good for an up-to-date view.

Any major bank understands Big 4 partner K-1s and in fact we are their favorite customers since we are as close to a sure thing as there is.


2.875% for jumbo 30 yr fixed


What banks are these?

3.25% with 15% down on a jumbo loan is what I was recently offered. Slightly lower rate with 20%.

Which bank A1 and A1?

I used Wells Fargo, process took too long but 2.875 on 30 year fixed $1.7m

Timing seems bad but good luck

3% with 20% down jumbo

Timing not ideal and would wait if you can. Also consider a 15 year note to get rate lowered

Silly generalizations—totally depends on the location

Just re-financed not too long ago. Got 2.65% on a 30 year fixed JUMBO

Interestingly, I also went with Wells Fargo

Wells. 7/6 mo jumbo ARM @ 2.625%. Just refi’d to this a few months ago from a 7/1 jumbo ARM @ 2.75%.

Got 2.5% for 30yr loan with 15% down. Paid 8K (discount points ) . Wells Fargo is the bank.


A few months back, refinanced to 15 year fixed. 2.5% amalgamated bank. Loan kept in house. No points, low closing costs. K1 income verification was pretty seamless

Wells Fargo will ago give you a discount if you use them for your investment funds

I have 2.25/ yr, but is conforming. Look at rates through pmd program banks, there are specials for opening and keeping accts. I used key bank, but had wells before.

BOA 2.4% jumbo with 30% down 30 yr fixed

What would it have been otherwise? Not familiar with BoA’s loyalty system

1.85% BoA for jumbo loan

Closing was 1 month ago but 2.75% 1.5m loan with 20% down at boa

Not sure if anyone else deals with this, but I feel so inferior compared to my friends at medical school or those who went to Ivy post grads. I went straight to Accenture right after college and while I’m so grateful for having a good job, I just feel like I haven’t done enough and will never realize certain financial goals at the rate I’m going. The problem is I’ve never really been good at setting attainable goals and often get discouraged and feel as though I can never be “the high achiever”

Rant: I interviewed at a mid size firm for Senior Tax Associate role and went really well. Partner calls after a couple days to say they want to offer me a job and asked me if I wanted senior 1 or 2. I said senior 2 since I have a years experience as a senior and she was okay with it and discussed salary. She said she will think about the final offer and let me know. A week later she comes back to tell me that my small firm experience probably won’t help much and it would be difficult for me...


Since we're all talking money, I just got my first raise ever and I'm feeling stoked. 🤗 My loans may still have me broke as a joke, but at least I'm feeling valued! ☀️

FAANG folks - what are Facebook/Google roles like Country Lead/Industry Lead equivalent to? Are these Director level roles? What sort of compensation can you expect in something like that role?


I recently accepted an offer which entails a nice signing bonus. I have a bf of like 1 year. He has, twice, kind of jokingly suggested that he expects me to pay for our trip we are taking before I start the new job. Is it selfish of me to like still request he split the cost of accommodation etc? I make more $ than him for context. And he usually treats me to din whenever we go out. It’s kind of a lot of $ for me to just do, and I’d rather like, invest it… but I don’t want to be selfish. Idk.


I only fly United so I can’t use all these free drink vouchers 😭😢
