Adam Milstein is a real estate investor, active philanthropist, and community leader. He is an Israel native who graduated from the Technion in 1978. Adam Milstein worked in IDF during the Yom Kippur War. Adam then moved to the US where he earned his MBA from USC and started his commercial real estate career in Southern California. Milstein currently serves at Hager Pacific Properties, a private commercial real estate company as a managing partner.
Adam, during a recent interview on ideamensch, said that the idea of Hager Pacific Properties originated from what he went through while in the university for his MBA when people came to recruit for jobs. He noted that they did not appreciate his knowledge and experience because they offered him less salary than the amount earned by undergraduate students. That is when Adam decided to go on his own to become a real estate commercial broker, and after gaining experience, he became a real estate investor.
Adam also noted that as a business owner, you don’t know how your typical day will look like because you have a lot to do. He said that he has realized that being an active philanthropist makes his day-to-day task more satisfying than any other thing. When asked about how he brings his ideas to life, Adam noted that he pushes ideas until they become a reality. He further said that if another person cannot do it, you need to go ahead and do it yourself. Adam also noted that he follows up things daily and ensures that nothing falls through the cracks by doing things on his own.
Milstein was also asked about the trend that excites him. He noted that the real estate sector has many exciting ups and downs such as when supply lags a few years behind demand then it flips. Adam said that the price fluctuations in the real estate market also excite him. He further noted that it takes time to get results in the real estate sector; therefore, investors should be patient.
Adam is the president of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. Adams aims at strengthening the Jewish people as well as the State of Israel. Hager Pacific Properties owns and manages many industrial and commercial properties in the US.
