Adam Milstein is a managing partner at Hager Pacific Properties. He is an avid real estate investor and philanthropist, founding the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation in 2000. As a native of Israel, he fought in the Yom Kippur War as part of the Israeli Defense Forces. He graduated from the Technion with an undergraduate degree in Business and Economics and moved to the United States with his wife and children in 1981. In 1983, Milstein graduated from the University of Southern California with a graduate’s degree in Business Administration.
He began his career as a sales agent with the commercial real estate industry and eventually helped create Hager Pacific Properties. As a managing partner, he oversees the company’s accounting, financing, and disposition. Hager Pacific specializes mainly in obtaining, and rehabilitating commercial, retail, and multi-family properties.
The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, founded in 2000, is the family’s foundation which helps sponsor the education of the younger generation in hopes of allowing them to identify with their Jewish roots and connect with Israel. The foundation’s hope is to set a flame to their Jewish pride and to advocate for Israel and Jewish people from all over the world. Adam Milstein even sits on the boards of organizations like the Jewish Funders Network, Stand By Me, Israel On Campus Coalition, StandWithUs, and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
After realizing that he wasn’t being taken seriously, Milstein went out on his own to experience three straight years as a Real Estate Commercial broker before starting out as a real estate investor. By pushing his ideas into reality, he began a company that he could be proud of. He believes in ensuring that everything is done by making sure he takes care of things himself.
Milstein finds real estate to be the perfect niche for him because of the wide variety of ups and downs. He loves the way that supply lags behind demand, then flips, then prices fluctuate. He believes the industry itself is very exciting, leaving each of his days a little less mundane. Part of the reason he loves his job is because it typically takes a long time to see results within the industry, meaning he must work very hard to see his results at the end.
