A north Texas native, Elaina Kay grew up on her family’s ranch in Wichita Falls, Texas. She helped with their cutting horse business – breeding, training, showing, gathering cattle, and every ranch chore in between.
Elaina attended Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas, where she joined the rodeo team competing in barrel racing. She also had the opportunity of working on a hunting television show that took wounded war veterans to different ranches across Texas. She worked her way through college as an equine vet tech. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in biology while continuing to compete in rodeo. After graduating college, she started a career in veterinary pharmaceutical sales, specializing in equine.
Elaina Kay has also been recognized as an established singer/songwriter and started an annual festival and benefit called Cornbread & Country that gives back to first responders. Her husband is a Dallas fireman and caters the BBQ for the event. Prior to her real estate career, Elaina toured nationally with Rhett Miller of the Old 97’s, Wynonna Judd, and Jason Boland & The Stragglers. She was nominated for a Dallas Observer Music Award and featured in Rolling Stone.
Elaina’s passion for country living and western heritage led her into ranch real estate. Her knowledge of working ranches combined with her experience in land management gives her clients the confidence they need when buying or selling farm and ranch properties.
