Grietje Reuter, Partner

Originally from the Netherlands, Grietje Reuter moved to Sacramento in 1976 and settled into the community, making it her new home. She graduated from UC Davis and, in addition to her work at Cassadyne, has been a technology consultant specializing in human and social services. Contributing to the well-being and growth of cities became more than a passion when she, along with her husband and business partner Robert Rodriguez, helped build BarronKent.

She has been devoted to revitalizing some of Sacramento’s older establishments while helping to maintain the unique charm of the Capitol city. Her role focuses on guiding the acquisition process with strong value propositions and strengthening ongoing marketing efforts – pushing for ideas that are timeless and sustainable.
