Ownership of the company changed several times over the years.

In 1987, Dan and Patti Wood purchased the Chino Valley office of Pauley and McDonald Realty. They shortly thereafter changed the name to Pauley & McDonald Independent Realty. In 1992 they opened a franchise; Century 21 Pauley and McDonald and in 2004 moved to the 901 S HWY 89 location.
