How long have you lived in Spain and how long is your business established?

Jason Godwin: I Moved to Spain in 1992 aged 20. I setup Mercury Internet in 1996, and InfoCasa in 2000.

Why did you choose Marbella?

Jason Godwin: A pal of mine from my hometown of Glossop spent every summer over here. I visited and like many other people ended up staying.

Tell us your greatest business or personal accomplishment?

Jason Godwin: Business achievement, had to be when a network of 150 real estate agents whose software was changed by their supplier demanded that our software was reinstated or else they would leave the network.

Personal achievement, the birth of my daughter, Sofia, last year.

Why would you recommend the Costa del Sol for business and Lifestyle?

Jason Godwin: I once heard that in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king! Seriously, if you work hard and you are professional then you can achieve almost anything.

If you could change one thing about Spain, what would it be?

Jason Godwin: Marbella townhall. Their utter incompetence delayed the building of my house for over two years. Idiots.

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Jason Godwin: Generous, handsome, deluded

What is your favourite Restaurant in Marbella?

Jason Godwin: Has to be the Katsura Sushi restaurant. Best sushi I’ve ever eaten and I like that the owner kicks you out at 4pm as he wants to go home.

What is the last film you saw at the Cinema or DVD?

Jason Godwin: Cinema, Torremolinos 73.   Last DVD I watched was Godfather, my favourite film!

What advice would you give to someone moving to Spain?

Jason Godwin: Learn Spanish. Strive to be excellent at what you do. And er, don’t setup a real estate software company.

Name one other business you would recommend on the Costa Del Sol and why?

Jason Godwin: Telefonica. Their efficiency, professionalism and proactive approach to business is quite inspiring.  Oh, maybe not.  I think that Kyero.com are a professional company and are passionate about what they do.

Jason has recently launched an MLS System called ICAN.
