One of the programs that businessman and philanthropist Adam Milstein loves to use is Constant Contact, a program that keeps his business and social contacts organized and helps him stay in touch at all times. Always following up with his contacts is something that he believes is important to bringing in more business, and forming new relationships in philanthropy. He is the Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties, a real estate investment company based in Los Angeles that sells and leases properties across California, Texas and Illinois. He’s brought in millions of dollars in investor funds and formed business strategies for the company. He shared some thoughts on business in real estate with the authors of business blog Ideamensch.
Adam Milstein got into real estate after completing graduate school, and he chose real estate because he had done some work in the field with his father, and he believed he could do better for himself than the job offers he had gotten thus far. Though he says more structure can be had in business as assets are acquired, he likes not knowing what a typical day could bring to him. But he believes staying in contact with every lead he makes and keeping them in the loop. He has built many new partnerships through the Milstein Foundation, an organization he and his wife Gila founded to give back to the Jewish community.
Adam Milstein began his career in Israel working with his father in the building framing business. His father had moved to Israel back in 1948 and fought in the new nation’s first war prior to joining the construction industry. Adam also has served in the military doing a tour in the Yom Kippur War in the 1970s under former Prime Minister and Field Commander Ariel Sharon. Milstein got his bachelor’s at the Technion Israeli Institute of Technology prior to enrolling in grad school at USC. He established the Milstein Foundation in 2000, and has served as Chairman of the Israeli-American Council, an organization that promotes pro Israel agendas and peace. He’s also a member of Hasbara Fellowships, Israel on Campus Coalition, StandWithUs, and AIPAC.
