Adam Milstein was born in Israel. When he became of age, he served in the IDF during the Yom Kippur War. After leaving the IDF, he attended the Technion and graduated in 1978. Wanting to further his education, he moved the U.S.
In 1981, Adam Milstein began in attending the University of Southern California. In 1983, he earned his MBA and began working in Commercial Real Estate. Currently, Adam is a Managing Partner at a private commercial real estate investment firm. The company, Hager Pacific Properties, is a place where Adam can use his experience in a way that he wants.
Even though Adam has achieved much success, he still remembers where he came from. One of his many philanthropies is helping the thousands of Israeli-Jewish-American families in the U.S. Along with his wife, Gila, another native of Israel, he has founded and supported several organizations that aim to keep Jewish traditions and customs alive.
According to Jewish Journal, when Adam Milstein first arrived in the U.S., he dreamt of giving his family everything he didn’t have as a child. While working toward his MBA in entrepreneurship, Adam noticed several people coming to campus and trying to recruit young professionals.
Even though these recruiters had been in the working force for years, Adam felt that they weren’t offering him what he was worth.
Having considered the recruiters’ offers, Adam Milstein decided to venture out on his own. He started out as a Real Estate Commercial broker and saw three years of substantial success. His fourth year in the industry and he decided to become an investor. The switch from broker to investor didn’t bring much change to Adam’s life.
The main difference in the switch is that as an investor, he is now left with a lot of spare time. Rather than try to fill that spare time with meaningless endeavors, he dedicates much of his time to charities and philanthropies.
He also uses that spare time to bring ideas and dreams to life. He pushes himself and others to achieve the impossible.
