With Sequoia Portfolio Plus, we make all credit decisions and exceptions, providing flexible qualification and faster approvals.

Say YES when others say NO with Sequoia Portfolio Plus!

Flexible Qualification

We control all underwriting, so we can tailor loans up to $2 million to a borrower’s unique income and asset circumstances.

Faster Approvals

We underwrite the loan and make exceptions ourselves, so approval isn’t delayed by investors.

Live Scenario Desk

Our lending specialists are on tap to quickly price scenarios and identify ways to qualify, making same-day exception decisions after loan submission.

Competitive Rates

Even when borrowers have complicated credit situations, we strive to keep rates among the lowest in the market.

What kind of borrowers are well-suited for Sequoia Portfolio Plus?

All kinds of borrowers are suitable for Sequoia, but you may find the most success with difficult-to-qualify borrowers like:

  • High-asset borrowers needing exceptions on credit score, LTV, or DTI
  • Self-employed borrowers
  • Borrowers with credit events who also have excellent credit history since event
  • Real estate investors with multiple properties
  • Non-warrantable condos

Borrowers should have strong credit and personal financial strength to qualify for the best rates.
