In a recent article interview with Ideamensch, Adam Milstein discussed managing Hager Pacific Properties alongside with David Hager and his life as an entrepreneur. Hager Pacific Properties is a private commercial real estate investment firm. The business came about years ago when Milstein decided to take on a job as a real estate commercial broker. He had earned his degree in entrepreneurship at USC but was unable to find a job that would pay him well.
Over a course of three years, Milstein achieved great success as a real estate broker and then decided to go a step further to become an investor in real estate. In the interview, he discusses what he does to continuously achieve great success. Milstein states that he doesn’t set specific goals. He finds them limiting and believes the best way to go about it is to always do your best.
Another tip he gives is not to listen to criticism. The real estate business is tough so Milstein suggests to not listen to the naysayers because it takes a great amount of time to make money. Lastly, the best business advice he offers is to follow up with every lead, you will most likely always miss out if you don’t.
Milstein is also a philanthropist and active community leader. He stands by his quote “To understand the issue yourself – one cannot rely on other people. Be part of the solution. Understand the problem and contemplate the issue.” He’s a native of Israel also serves as a co-founder and national chairman of the Israeli-American Council. He’s also on the board of several organizations, including, the Israel on Campus Coalition, StandWithUs, Hasbara Fellowships, Jewish Funders Network, AISH Los Angeles, AIPAC National Council and the Los Angeles Board of Birthright Israel.
