A native of Israel, Adam Milstein has built himself an impressive profile as a real estate developer, community leader, and philanthropist. He took part in the Yom Kippur War during his compulsory service in the Israel Defense Forces. He studied at Technion and graduated in 1978. Shortly after moving to the United States in 1981, Adam Milstein enrolled for an MBA at the University of Southern California and started his career in 1983 as a commercial real estate developer in South California. He currently works at Hager Pacific Properties, a commercial real estate investment firm as a managing partner.
Milstein also serves on the board of the Israeli-American Council as the chairman of national expansion. He also sits on the board of organizations such as AIPAC National Council, StandWithUs, Jewish Funders Network, Los Angeles Board of Birthright Israel, Hasbara Fellowships, and Israel on Campus Coalition. Through joint efforts with his wife, Gila, Adam Milstein founded Sirfiyat Pijama B’America, a humanitarian organization that provides free Hebrew teachings to over 15,000 Israeli-Americans to teach them Jewish values. The idea for starting Hager Pacific Properties came after Milstein received his MBA in Entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California. There were many organizations recruiting campus students before Milsten graduated. To know more about him click here.
However, Adam Milstein realized that they didn’t appreciate his experience and knowledge. They were offering him less than what an undergraduate would earn. Consequently, Adam Milstein decided to start working as a real estate broker. After three years of success as a real estate broker, Mr. Milstein grew to become an iconic real estate developer. As an entrepreneur, Mr. Milstein doesn’t have a flexible working schedule. Over time, Milstein has realized that getting involved in philanthropy makes his routine activities satisfying. Mr. Milstein pushes until his ideas become a reality. He often follows up all his clients and doesn’t allow anything to fall through the cracks. While there are plenty of exciting trends in the real estate industry, Adam Milstein likes the fact that supply always lags behind demand. As a result, it takes time to take notice of results in the real estate market.
