Meet the power broker behind Huntersville project

KRISTIN INGRAM: ‘I LOVE LOOKING AT LAND AND SEEING WHAT WE CAN DO WITH IT’

Commercial real estate broker Kristen Ingram is the developer behind Ramah Executive Park, a three-building complex under construction in Huntersville.

BIT Acquisitions, which purchased the property, teamed up with Sitetec Construction and G Brokerage to develop and market the flexible business park.

Ingram’s first commercial project has a high profile in a fast-growing part of Huntersville just east of Hwy. 115 and south of Hwy. 73.

“It’s exciting, stressful and educational all at the same time,” she said, explaining that she and her husband, Cory, live “right down the street and I am there every day.”

Cory is with Sitetec Construction in Charlotte, which, among other things, does multi-family renovation and builds spec homes in the 4,000-square foot range.

At Ramah Executive, the couple wants to offer business space for small- to medium-size businesses like themselves.

Kristen grew up in Wilmington and got bachelor’s degrees from UNC-Wilmington in organizational communications and accounting.

She bussed tables and then became a waitress and then a manager at the Olympia Restaurant in Wilmington. She continued as a manager through college, and then worked for a law firm before becoming a senior mortgage loan officer.

A broker for three years now at Cornelius-based G Brokerage, Kristen has the Olympia listed for sale for the owners.

Commercial property is hot right now, particularly industrial sites, she says, explaining that she is looking for new developmen opportunities.

“I love looking at land and seeing what we can do with it,” Ingram says.

She was appointed in the fall to Huntersville’s 2040 Community Plan, one of just 15 residents who sit on the committee.

The visioning and planning exercise is an opportunity for all who live, work and play in Huntersville to have a chance to explore the unique challenges facing the fast-growing town.

A public survey is open online at https://publicinput.com/HCPSurvey. Ingram says it is an opportunity for all who live, work and play in Huntersville to communicate what is important to them.

The information will be used in conjunction with public engagement events to formulate the 2040 Community Plan. For an overview visit www.huntersville2040.com/
