It’s mandatory for every Israel citizen to join the army after attaining the age of 18 years. Adam Milstein was no exception as he joined the Israel Defense Forces in the year 1971. Two years later, Adam fought in the Yom Kippur war and came out alive. Today, a lot have changed, and Adam now lives in the United States. He immigrated to the States shortly after finishing his business and economics degree from Technion College. Upon setting foot to the USA, he joined the University of California for an MBA and graduated years later. Things didn’t go as planned and Adam found himself alone working as a commercial real estate broker as employers paid him less than a graduate. These hustles led him to establish a firm of his own called the Hager Pacific Properties. To date, he takes care of accounting and dispositions in this firm and works alongside his longtime friend David Hager.
In a recent interview, Adam Milstein talked about his life. Concerning the structure of his day, Adam revealed that he does not always have a pre-planned way to spend his day. Nevertheless, the day begins to take structure as time goes by and he can complete more tasks. Adam says that involving himself in philanthropy is a way of reducing stress and getting away from every day’s stress. Adam is a believer of hard work and says that when other people cannot complete a task for you, it’s your responsibility to prove them wrong. Adam says that he is fascinated by the idea of supply lagging behind demand in the real estate business. Among the three things that Adam believes in is persistence, consistency and follow up. Adam has never had a bad job and says he feels that he has made the right decisions about his life.
When asked to tip future investors about what to avoid, Adam advises people to avoid the temptation of investing all their money in one venture as it can result in a loss. Among the things that Adam Milstein is known for today is the Adam and Gila Family Foundation and the Israeli-American Council. He is also involved with other Jewish organizations.
