About Me


Here to help real estate buyers and sellers find solutions to fit their circumstances and needs. 


Mississippi natives, my husband Roy and I returned to Mississippi in 1998 after ten years in the eastern portion of Tennessee. Oxford was a perfect choice to live and raise our family.  A brief move to the Madison area for a couple of years culminated in a return to Oxford, and we now consider Oxford home.

After purchasing a condo in 2006 to use for short-term rentals, I built a thriving business providing short-term rentals in Oxford, which I continue to operate. Buying and selling various properties in Oxford through the years, I developed a keen interest in the Oxford real estate market and am familiar with all areas of Oxford. Becoming a Realtor was the next obvious step.  When my longtime friend Sharon Grace invited me to join her at her new boutique real estate agency, I jumped at the opportunity to join her at Grace Realty Group in February 2015!

Through the years, Roy and I have bought and sold properties close to 30 times, so I'm intensely familiar with the client side of the process as well as the professional side.

In February, 2020, I opened my own brokerage, Kay Hightower Real Estate, LLC.
