Meet Mallik and Mariana: The Foundation of M & M Homes
Mallik found his passion for historic home renovations and custom home design more than 15 years ago when he and his family, moved to the Historic Springfield neighborhood in Jacksonville, Florida, in 2006. He quickly fell in love with the historic homes found throughout the community and identified an opportunity soon after the recession upon seeing a number of Springfield homes for sale, though many were in desperate need of repairs. This foundation became the beginning of M & M Homes.
Over the years, Mallik and his team have renovated numerous historic homes, many of which would have met the wrecking ball if not for Mallik’s vision of what they could become. Renovations for historic homes can be very challenging, but Mallik and his team have been able to save many historic homes throughout downtown Jacksonville’s historic neighborhoods. Over time, Mallik moved his passion forward and began to design and build custom homes.
Mallik’s role at M & M Homes today is overseeing the entire construction process. Mallik also serves as a financial officer for M & M Homes.
Marianna handles all design and logistical details of M & M Homes’ historic renovation and custom build projects. A designer at heart, Marianna pursued admission to one of the European design schools at an early age but was instead accepted into pharmaceutical school and was a practicing pharmacist in Europe and later in USA for years before returning to the roots she is most passionate about: art, design, and adaptive reuse. She began doing small projects for M & M Homes, including upcycling or restoring old doors, fixtures, furniture, and other materials found at abandoned historic houses. Soon customers began recognizing her unique abilities and inherent design skills. Now, Marianna is the lead designer for all of M & M Homes’ renovation and custom build projects, handling everything from initial design to product/material sourcing to installation.
