Meet Tiffany Kinslow, Realtor at Main Street Realty, which serves to meet its clients’ needs in Smith, Simpson, and Rankin county areas. She graduated from Copiah Lincoln College in 2000 and attended the University of Southern MS and Ashford University, where she completed her studies in 2004. Before getting into the real estate profession, Tiffany was a school teacher for many years. However, she always loved real estate and knew beforehand that she would eventually pursue her career in real estate.
The area where Tiffany operates is very rural and has many unique challenges compared to larger cities. She says, “I was teased when I decided to niche down and serve my small community. Many thought I was making a bad decision for being a small town realtor, but I love my community.” Tiffany believes her love for the community keeps her going in the industry.
Last year, she was also recognized as a top agent by the Top Agent Magazine. For the past 8 years, she has maintained between 30-45 listings throughout the year and closed between 65-80 transactions. Currently, she has 48 listings.
Tiffany also serves as the VP of the Magee Chamber of Commerce, Board member of the Mendenhall Chamber of Commerce, Director of the Simpson County Developmental Foundation, and serves on Keep Magee Beautiful.

Tiffany Kinslow feels that the lack of inventory is a big challenge nowadays. She is trying to overcome that by reaching out to her older clients and informing them about the current value of their homes, and she can help them sell those for the best market value.
She believes another challenge is realtors holding themselves to a professional standard, having the needed industry knowledge to represent their clients adequately, and operating with integrity throughout the transaction.
Before the pandemic, Tiffany Kinslow had a robust social media presence. She is an avid lister and constantly listens to real-estate training courses. These courses pushed her to opt for video marketing from the very beginning. So, Tiffany started marketing her homes through videos over the internet even before the pandemic. As a result, the pandemic’s effect on her business was milder than it was on other companies. However, some of her deals did fall through as the banks were closed and halted their lending processes. She says, “It was a scary time. I approached it like I have every other challenge I have faced in my business. I knew I needed to pivot my business to accommodate my clients through Covid, and that’s what I did.”
Tiffany soon started encouraging her clients and reminded them how she could virtually market their homes and follow CDC guidelines in case of any physical meeting. She considers her clients an important part of her life, and they know it. If her clients were uncomfortable marketing their homes at the height of the pandemic, she refrained. However, she marketed like crazy when they were comfortable with the process. Tiffany closed 75 and 78 transactions during the two years of the pandemic.
