Adam Milstein has done a lot in his lifetime and sits on several boards for organizations that help improve relations with Israel and other countries. While he is a businessman by trade, he has found that philanthropy has made his life much more satisfying. He has found that many of his projects have become a reality because he has pushed them to become so. While he values other people and appreciates working with them, he has come to realize that if someone else can’t get something done, he should make it happen himself.
Mr. Milstein appreciates the ups and downs of the real estate world and knows that results only come with hard work and time. He feels that a lot of his success as an entrepreneur has come from his knack to be persistent and consistent, and the fact they he loves to work. On the contrary to what a lot of other business leaders say, he firmly believes that setting specific goals has limited him. He also feels that listening too much to criticism hampers people’s god-given abilities, and he has revealed that making a good amount of money in the real estate world is something that simply takes time. If someone tells you you’re not a success because you aren’t making money within the first couple of years, Mr. Milstein advises that they should be ignored.
Mr. Milstein is a leader in his community, a successful real estate investor, and a generous philanthropist who has helped many people worldwide. He came to the United States from Israel in 1981 and attended USC where he earned his MBA. In 1983 he started out his real estate career in Southern California and is now a managing partner for the real estate investment company, Hager Pacific Properties.
His wife, Gila, and himself started the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, which is in place to help better connect Israel with the United States. Through education and donations the foundation helps Jewish people to be proud of their heritage and for Israel to receive a fair shake in universities and other organizations. Mr. Milstein practices active philanthropy, which means that along with money donations, Adam, Gila, and other members of their foundation also donate their time to helping directly.
