If you keep up with business news, you probably keep abreast with real estate news as well. To anyone in the real-estate industry, the name Adam Milstein definitely rings a bell (or opens a door). Adam Milstein is a force to reckon with in this industry. As a Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties, he has definitely cemented his place within the realms of real estate. However, his has not been an overnight success. He has had to put in the time, the effort and the sacrifice in order to be where he is today. In an interview with Ideamensch, he explained his very inspiring outlook in life.
First of all, he says that he has never held a job which he considered a bad job. This does not mean that he has always held the most gratifying job at the helm of an institution. Quite the contrary – it only points towards his very positive outlook in life. This is because, according to him, no job is a bad job, as inherent in every job one holds, is an opportunity to learn and to improve your craft. For instance, before he started his own firm with his partner, he worked as a commercial broker for three years. These three years were the training ground for the success that was to follow. This is because, he learnt the language of the game, the ins and outs of the business, the tastes and preferences of the clientele and most importantly, he honed his skills in the real estate sector. Therefore, when Adam Milsteinsays he has never had a bad day at work, you best believe it is true.
However, Adam Milstein is equally as passionate about philanthropy as he is when he dons the cap of Managing Partner at his firm. He believes in giving back to the society, or, as the saying goes, to whom much is given, much is expected. Adam Milstein sits in many boards of organizations that have a philanthropic outlook. On a personal level, together with his wife, they co-founded and run the SifriyatPijamaB’America, an initiative that provides free books to children.
