The Israeli-born, Adam Milstein, dabbles in everything. He’s a renowned philanthropist, leader, and realtor. As is the norm with all Israelis, Adam once served in the Israeli Defense Force. He was one of the soldiers deployed to fight in the infamous, Yom Kippur War. A few years after his honorable discharge from the army, Adam made his way to America. That was now in 1981.
Boards Adam Serves
Barely five years later, Adam had already attained his MBA. He studied the MBA course at the prestigious USC College. He landed his first gig at the Commercial Real Estate firm operating out of Southern California in1983. Today, the Israeli is a member of the board of several prominent companies and organizations. These include serving as the MD of Hager Pacific Properties, AISH Organization, AIPAC Israel on Campus Coalitions and at the Birthright Israel Organization in L.A.
What Inspires Adam Milstein?
Speaking in an interview shared on www.ideamensch.com, Adam admits that he felt grossly shortchanged by the rates he was being offered back in his campus days. The recruiters paid next-to-nothing, and Milstein would not have any of their shenanigans. He made a solemn vow to venture solo and do something more worthy of his time and intelligence. That’s actually his primary motivation to set up his real estate firm, Hager Pacific.
Adam loves to take on daunting challenges. Perhaps, this comes from his experience as a soldier. He is relentless in his pursuit of solutions and answers to recurring problems in his businesses. He is wildly fascinated by the demand and supply dynamics alive in the real estate realm. One day, your property is worth a million, the next it’s worth a couple of tens of thousands of dollars. Trying to outwit the markets is what keeps him awake on most nights.
Adam Milstein is a family man. He’s quoted in the Ideamensch.com interview confessing that the best $100 ever spent was with his wife and kids over a dinner.
