Adam Milstein has lived in the United States since the year 1981. Before then, he was a citizen of the State of Israel. In his entire life, Adam Milstein has always served people and his country. He heads many community organizations such as the Israeli-American Council, Hasbara Fellowships, BirthrightIsrael and Israel on Campus Coalition. Adam Milstein is known as the founder of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, a charity organization that helps the less fortunate Jews across the whole globe.
As a young boy, he joined the Israeli-Defense Forces and even participated in the Yom Kippur War. Shortly after leaving the army, Adam Milstein attended the Technion College and specialized in business and economics. He, however, discovered his passion after finishing his MBA at the University of Southern California. Employers did not appreciate his skills and knowledge. They even offered him a less salary compared to the undergraduates. For this reason, he felt compelled to go out of his own and became a real estate commercial broker.
For the three years that he worked as a real estate commercial broker, Adam Milstein met Hager David and the two became friends. Later on, the two established the Hager Pacific Properties where Adam is a managing partner. This means that he takes care of several issues at the firm such as accounting, disposition, and financing. Adam recently said that he gets involved in philanthropy when he gets bored. He is a firm believer in three important virtues; consistency, persistence and follow up. He says failure to follow up leads to 100 percent missed opportunities.
He says that the greatest mistake that an investor or businessman can make is investing all their money in one project. This is always driven by the desire to make a fortune overnight. He says that he once tried this when in school and made a lot of losses. Milstein has never had a bad job, and there is no decision that he can regret in his life. The one strategy that has helped him succeed is not having specific goals. He says that this can be very limiting.
