SANTA ROSA, Calif. - North American Mortgage Co. reported that its June 1995 loan applications were $1.31 billion, a 27% increase from a year earlier. Loan fundings were $721 million, a 9% increase.
John F. Farrell Jr., chairman and chief executive, said, "June was a breakthrough month. Fundings increased to a 13-month high, and we enjoyed continued growth in new applications.
