Adam Milstein first entered the Southern California real estate market as a Real Estate Commercial Broker. Three years later he decided to start investing his own money in real estate and so he established Hagar Pacific Properties. He splits his time between his business and his philanthropy as he finds that the most satisfying way to lead his life.
As an entrepreneur, there are going to be failures along the way. One that Adam Milstein has talked about is when he lived in Israel and sold art to temples. He was having some good success at this so he decided to purchase a huge inventory of art which ended up taking him far longer to sell than he had thought it would. The lesson he learned is to not expect success in a short period of time.
Through Hager Pacific, Adam Milstein owns almost 100 properties around the United States. One of his biggest investments is in multi-family real estate and he owns over 3,000 apartment units. He also owns 10 million square feet of commercial and industrial properties. Altogether, the value of the properties he has invested in exceeds $1 billion in value.
