Soon after, the company's name was changed to Chongqing Longhu Real Estate Development Co. Ltd..

With the first project in 1995, the company developed quickly and became an important real estate company. At the beginning of the company, Wu Yajun foretold that it would be the best in the real estate market in Chongqing five years later, and 10 years later, it would become one of the best in the country.

In 2000, Wu Yajun began to exploit brands series of Longhu. Till 2005, the sale of Longhu had reached 2.12 billion yuan. In 2006, Wu Yajun tried to expand her business in the country. As it is expected, only if the company goes to the Hong Kong stock market successfully, Wu Yajun's fortune would reach 70 billion yuan overtaking the current richest women Yang Huiyan.
