About Kay Hightower

Kay Hightower | Mississippi Native 20+ Year Resident of Oxford

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, which at the time included one adopted son. Following a brief foray to the Madison area from late 2002 until early 2005 (during which we added a nephew to our household), we now consider Oxford home.

With extensive training in Education and Industrial/Organizational Psychology, I worked for a while as a research consultant with the Center for Educational Research and Evaluation at Ole Miss. 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’ve has developed a keen interest in the Oxford real estate market and am familiar with all areas of Oxford. Becoming a Real Estate Agent was the next obvious step.
