Mia Pearlman – Managing Director
I moved to Spain in 1999 to work in the property sector. Working for a market leading Real Estate agency until 2006 when I decided to set up affinity, and yes, this is when the recession started! We have been a success ever since. Born in Dorset, UK, and then moved to London when I took my first job in the UK's largest publishing house, EMAP. I was also part of the launch team for the 'Boots Health and Beauty magazine' published by a lovely company called Redwood. I won many awards for creative ideas for many of our clients including BMW, Estee Lauder, LVMH and so on.
I now live in La Quinta, Benahavis which is extremely quiet, yet still very close to the center of Marbella and Puerto Banus. I am also very close to a beautiful village where some of the best restaurants on the coast are located. If you are a resident of this special area, the local town hall give you many benefits such as free schooling, lower property taxes and free entry to the local activity centre/swimming pool!
James Vizetelly – Marketing Director
I made my final move to Spain in 2010 after 3 years of travelling between London and Marbella. I spent 10 years prior to this working within the finacial sector in central London's Canary Wharf. I grew up in east London and now live within a stunning Golf Resort in Marbella/Benahavis. Within a 5 minute drive we have some great beaches, fantastic restaurants and even a great ski resort (Sierra Nevada) which is only a 2 hour drive away. The lakes of Istan are a 20 minute drive from the coast too; for a perfect place to live and work, Marbella ticks every box you could ever wish for...
