Adam Milstein is an entrepreneur from Israel who enjoys working because he devotes the majority of his time to helping the Jewish American population. Adam Milstein and David Hager co-founded Hager Pacific Properties real estate agency after graduating from the University of Southern California. After passing several business opportunities by, Adam and David decided on real estate as a career.
Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel where he served in the Israeli Army and attended Technion receiving a business degree. After getting married and having two children, Adam wanted more education, so he moved his family to California where he attended the USC and graduated with the MBA. For several years, Milstein grew Hager Properties as manager and then they formed a real estate investment agency.
At some point in his early career, Milstein discovered that he was happiest when he was helping people. His family always comes first, but his career in real estate was more satisfying to him when he was more involved in philanthropy for Jewish Americans.To that end, in 2000, he and his wife, Gila, founded the Milstein Family Foundation or the MFF. This foundation supports agencies that Milstein has established to benefit the Jewish population. He is co-founder of Sifriyat Pijama B’America and the Israeli-American Council, and he sits on the boards of StandWithUs, Israel on Campus Coalition, Hasbara Fellowships, Jewish Funders Network, Birthright Israel, Stand By Me and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee National Council
Adam Milstein is spontaneous and lives in the moment, so the founder of all of these organizations and partnering with David Hager keeps him busy. He claims to be consistent and persistent as well, but he prefers taking each day on its own merit even including the ups and down in the market. He says that makes real estate more interesting.Adam Milstein does not like setting goals because he says that they are too limiting. He recommends to the younger generation of business to be a part of the solution and interpret your own issues instead of relying on others to find the answers you are looking for. Don’t be afraid to move forward with your ideas.
