When Adam Milstein came to the US in 1981 to pursue graduate work at USC, he had already seen much of life. In addition to earning a degree at the Technion, like other college students in Isreal, he had done his part and fought in the Yom Kippur war. When recruiters came to USC to recruit the new grads, Adam Milstein saw that they were only offering jobs that paid little more than students graduating with lesser degrees were making. He decided to take an informed chance and become an entrepreneur, first as a real estate broker and then as an investor in commercial real estate. Adam Milstein had the foresight to make the right choices at the right time in the fast-growing Southern California market.
Having founded Hagar Pacific Properties, he made his name in the real estate arena; however, he never left his Israeli roots behind. He used his wealth to make a difference, both in his native land and his adopted country. Adam Milstein and his wife Gila are active in Pro-Isreali causes, such as providing free Hebrew books to Isreali-Americans through Sifriyat Pijama B’America. He is the co-founder of the Israeli-American Council and serves as their National Chairman.
Making his home in Encino, California, Adam Milstein is a husband, father, and grandfather in addition to being one of the most famous real estate entrepreneurs in the US. More than just an investment leader, Mr. Milstein and his family use their wealth and influence to make the world a better place by working for the protection of Israel and the preservation of Jewish culture.
