Adam Milstein is a true American success story. Born in Morocco, Milstein was raised mostly in Israel. He even served in the Israeli Defense Forces during the Yom Kippur War. As an adult, he moved to the United States. He ended up in Los Angeles, California.
That’s where Milstein really hit his stride. He completed an MBA at the famed University of Southern California. When it came to find a job, he quickly realized he would need to strike out on his own. Propsective employers were not making good offers. He wouldn’t be making any more than someone with less education and training.
Instead of working for someone else, he struck out on his own. Milstein became a commercial real estate broker. In just three short years, he had seen enough success to become a real estate investor. Today, Mr. Milstein is a managing partner at Hager Pacific Properties.
One of Milstein’s secrets is that he’s not work-shy. If there’s a gap in the market, or he can’t find someone to provide a service, he does it for himself. He also doesn’t limit himself. Instead of being perfectionist, Milstein allows his goals to shift as he gets more information. His go-getting attitude made it more than possible for him to achieve the American Dream. It’s also made it possible for him to help others reach their dreams.
He’s become a committed philanthropist. He’s particularly interested in Israeli-Jewish issues. The Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation seeks to help strengthen Israel. It makes grants to worthy organizations working there and in the US.
Milstein also sits on the Los Angeles Board of Birthright Israel. This organization makes it possible for young Jewish Americans to visit Israel. Other organizations he supports include StandWithUs and the Israel on Campus Coalition. With his philanthropy, he has helped enhance young people’s lives. He’s made things better for the populations of two countries he calls home.
