Adam Milstein is the managing partner at Hager Pacific Properties. The enterprise operates as a US based commercial real estate investment firm.

In 1978, philanthropist Adam Milstein graduated from the Technion having worked in IDF during the Yom Kippur War. He then joined the USC for his MBA in entrepreneurship and graduated in 1981. Two years later, his career kicked off in Southern California as a real estate commercial broker. A typical characteristic in real estate that Milstein points out is that demand is always so high compared to supply; supply rises some years later. Market value fluctuations are also a common trend in this industry. Throughout his career as an investor, he has attributed his success to persistence, follow-up, and consistency.
