Adam Milstein and the Importance of Self-Reliance

Self-reliance has always been a hallmark of a successful entrepreneur, at least according to community leader, real estate investor and philanthropist Adam Milstein. Always a self-starter, Adam Milstein has become successful in not only the real estate market but also a valued member of the community through his leadership and charitable endeavors. Adam Milstein currently sits as the co-founder and National Chairman of the Israeli-American Council, and also sits on the Boards of Los Angeles Board of Birthright Israel, Jewish Funders Network, Israel on Campus Coalition, AISH Los Angeles, AIPAC National Council, StandWithUs and Hasbara Fellowships.

In addition to his community involvement through these organizations, Adam Milstein also involves himself in many philanthropic undertakings. As he has noted, “I realized that getting involved in philanthropy make my day-to-day job much more satisfying.” This brought him, along with his wife Gila, to found SifriyatPijamaB’America, an organization that provides more than 15,000 Israeli-Jewish-American families in the US with free Hebrew books monthly, in an effort to help them stay connected to their heritage, and Milstein’s Website.

His long-standing philosophy of self-reliance has served Adam Milstein well, allowing him the freedom, and lessons that he needed to become successful on his own terms. “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 also not a big believer in setting specific goals when growing, a practice he finds limiting and constrictive on many cases. The power of hard work and persistence works far better in the end and allows aspirations to be updated consistently, and learn more about Adam Milstein.

After coming to the US in 1981, the Israeli native earned an MBA from the US. It was here that Adam Milstein decided to launch as a real estate broker, after fielding many very low offers that were only offering him what undergraduates were making at that time. After several years as a successful broker, he would go on to become a real estate investor on his own. He then founded Hager Pacific Properties, which currently manages millions of square feet of commercial and industrial real estate all throughout the United States.
