About us

Al Rushatz, PhD, COL, US Army (Ret) is a West Point graduate, and a 2010 Army Sports Hall of Fame inductee and Professor of Physical Education at USMA, West Point, Al and his wife, Lynda, chose Carolina Trace as their answer to the question, “Where are we going to live for the rest of our lives” after he retired from the military in 1990.

During his first five years at the Trace, Al headed the establishment of Back Health Clinics (medical-based clinics for the treatment of lower back pain) and provided consultation nationally on the development of Back Health Medical Centers; he currently is the holder of several US patents for the FDA approved BackMate® Rehabilitation System.

Al then became a real estate broker and since 1995, Al has been specializing in Carolina Trace properties full-time with Carolina Trace Gated Properties, LLC and is currently the owner. His customers benefit from Al’s extensive knowledge of the Carolina Trace community.

After practicing law for forty years and raising four children with his wife, Mim, in New Jersey, Barry and Mim launched their search for the ideal place to spend the next phase of their lives.
In 1999, they drove through Carolina Trace's gates and instantly knew that their search had ended. In 2006, they started their next adventures - in Carolina Trace. Barry is enjoying his decision to switch from real estate attorney to real estate broker. Barry is currently our broker-in-charge. He is excited about using his past experience for the benefit of both buyers and sellers of Trace properties.
Life at the Trace can offer something unique for each resident. As Barry says, “Being a Tracer allows me to fully enjoy my vocation of working with people in real estate while pursuing a vacation of golf - especially my passion for collecting and playing with antique and hickory period equipment. Where else but at Carolina Trace could I do this?”
