They adopted Sylvie from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The couple said they always knew they wanted to adopt and started looking at different programs globally. They adopted her on November 12, 2012 but she finally became their legal child in August 2013.

Dave Marrs Military

Dave has never served in the military but his father was in the Army. As a way of respecting the veterans, Dave and Jenny always add an American flag to every renovation project they complete on their show ‘Fixer to Fabulous.’

Dave Marrs Tattoo

Dave has a Hebrew tattoo on his right arm. The tattoo is in Hebrew letters and means “My Deliverer” from Psalm 18:2.

The full passage is: “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.”

Dave Marrs Construction

Marrs is the founder and owner of Marrs Developing, a construction firm which he launched in 2004. He began construction at an early age as his father was a builder. Through high school and college he did electrical work; he framed, trimmed, carpentry and built cabins. He went to college and thought he would do corporate America which he ended doing for two years before quitting and starting his company building homes in 2004 in Arkansas.

Jenny joined him in 2012 as a designer. The couple began building new homes in Bella Vista until the economic downturn of 2008. They survived the housing market crash, but transitioned to downtown and historic home renovations.

Dave Marrs Fixer to Fabulous

Dave said the reason for choosing historic downtown homes is because the style and design of the older homes have always appealed to them.

“We kind of started downtown after everything slowed down in 2008. I like working on the exterior the most. Jen really loves the interior. So, I’m a huge front porch person. In our area, downtown Bentonville, it’s a very inviting, open community. I think the best way you can enjoy that is with a big front porch, and so that just fit for the downtown area. We’re just fortunate we hit it at the right time, remodeling these downtown homes. We’ve just got an itch for it. ”

They got the opportunity to be on the show after an HGTV executive reached out to Jenny’s friends in the area in April 2016 as they found the area unique and thought it would be a great place to have a show for HGTV but at the time the couple was not interested as they were concerned about the amount of time it might take and how the show might represent their rural community.

“In April of 2016, one of the network executives reached out to her friends in the area. They found this area to be very unique and thought it would be a great place to have a show for HGTV. She asked for recommendations for builders, and our names got thrown in the hat. One of our biggest concerns was how the production company would portray the area.”

They were put at ease after knowing the company was from Knoxville, Tenn. They filmed a sizzle reel that was presented to HGTV. The network greenlighted them for a pilot which aired as Almost Home. After the pilot aired, a month later the series was picked and they began filming and the name was changed to ‘Fixer to Fabulous’.

Dave Marrs Berry Farm

Jenny and Dave have a Berry Farm where they grow blueberries. They choose blueberries as they yield fruit over a long period of time. They added that if nurtured and taken care properly the investment will span decades. The farm paves a way for agricultural training and a sustainable food source for orphaned children in Zimbabwe.

Dave said; “We aren’t looking to solve long-stemming issues of hunger and poverty with a short-term investment. We are committed to the long-haul with these kids. We want to sow seeds of truth and righteousness and love. The fruit that will result will be long-lasting: eternal.”

The farm funds The Gatehouse Project, providing training and mentorship in agriculture & livestock, wood & metal working, business management, textiles, cooking and even technology to over 80 orphaned and vulnerable children at Musha WeVana Village in Zimbabwe.

Dave Marrs Help One Now

Dave and Jenny are partners with Help One Now, a North Carolina-based nonprofit. The organization is committed to empowering and resourcing leaders in the region who care for orphans and vulnerable children. With the help of Marrs family, the organization provides agricultural training to children and young adults. They raise funds for the cause through their berry farm and adjacent event space.
