Adam Milstein Sheds Light On His Work At Hager Pacific Properties
Adam Milstein has built quite a reputation as a real estate guru but hasn’t been very outspoken about it. Ideamensch, an independent business blog was curious about how he came to be successful in real estate, so they interviewed him about his career. As Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties, Adam Milstein is responsible for property acquisitions and investments as well as financing for the firm. Hager Pacific Properties invests in and leases out luxury commercial and rental properties in three states, and is one of the leading broker firms in Los Angeles. Milstein is also a philanthropist and activist in the Jewish American community.
Adam Milstein first told Ideamensch how he came to be in the real estate industry. He had been attending graduate school and had explored business opportunities in other fields, but none had interested him enough. So he and David Hager, his friend and business partner decided it was time to make it on their own. Milstein says he doesn’t rely on others to do what he feels he can do himself. He also doesn’t think he should stick to any particular goal or idea in business, but rather to do the best you can in any situation.
Adam Milstein was born in Israel and saw many events happen during his time growing up there. He fought in the Yom Kippur War in 1973 and upon returning home joined his father in construction and real estate development. He got his bachelor’s degree at the Technion, Israeli Institute of Technology and later relocated to the US where he got his master’s at the University of Southern California. He’s married to Gila Milstein and is a father of three daughters.
Adam Milstein has been an active philanthropist who is personally involved in every organization that his family foundation supports. He is the Chairman of the Israeli-American Council, a non-profit group that works to strengthen the Jewish American community and strengthen ties to the US. Milstein is also a member of Hasbara Fellowships, Hillel International, Jerusalem U, StandWithUs, Birthright Israel, Israel on Campus Coalition, and AIPAC. He’s received an honorary mention in the Jerusalem Post’s Top 50 Most Influential Jews list.
