Get to know Kristin Hildebrand

Owner and Founder of
Checkered Flag Land and Homes

hey there!
I’m so excited to support you on your real estate journey.

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with various home buyers– first-timers, new families relocating to the area, and seasoned investors looking for their next investment opportunity.
I got started in real estate in 2019 thanks to the nudge from family members already in the industry. When I became a mother, I knew it was time to invest my time and energy in a career I was truly passionate about. Our family’s lifestyle–rodeo, ranching, and racing–balances beautifully with my career in real estate.

The name Checkered Flag Land and Homes is inspired by the Nascar racing community we’ve been a part of for years and that North Carolina is proudly known for. The name also pays homage to our family farm in Troutman, North Carolina–Checkered Flag Land & Cattle.

As a North Carolina local–born and raised–family and community are two of the most important things to me. These values are deeply rooted in the mission and experiences we provide at Checkered Flag. Clients often become friends, and my door is always open to the community.
