Adam Milstein actively participates in the real estate industry. This philanthropist and community leader hails from Israel. Adam worked with IDF in the Yom Kippur War. He is a Technion graduate. Adam relocated to the United States in 1981. He joined USC and earned an MBA. Shortly after, Adam Milstein started his career as a commercial real estate investor in California. He is one of the managing directors at the Hager Pacific Properties. This is one of the best performing commercial real estate companies.
Adam works as the National Chairperson of the Israeli-American Council since he is one of the founders. Adam Milstein is also a board member of the Jewish Funders Network, StandWithUs, Los Angeles Board of Birthright Israel and the Israel on Campus Coalition, among others. Adam and his wife, Gila started an organization called Sifriyat Pijama B’America. This firm gives monthly Hebrew books for free. It also helps to educate over 15,000 Jewish-American households living in the US, about the Jewish culture and values.
Speaking to Ideamensch, Adam explained how he brought his dream to reality. A few months before he graduated from USC, different recruiters visited them. According to him, they offered him less than he had set his mind on. Besides, they did not appreciate his combination of knowledge and skill. This is when he decided to do things on his own and joined the commercial real estate industry as a broker. Three years later, he changed from a broker to an investor. According to Adam Milstein, being consistent, persistence and making follow-ups is a guarantee to success in the real estate industry.
Adam advises that business owners should be prepared to alter their daily structure in a way that allows them to obtain more assets. Engaging in charity giving is also a satisfying and rewarding activity. He insisted that he does most of the work, and does regular follow-ups to ensure that everything is on the right track. Adam Milstein finds the real estate industry enjoyable especially from the differences in supply and demand. Again, it calls for patience because real estate business takes some time before giving expected results.
