Ideamensch has interviewed many entrepreneurs and philanthropists over the years to find out what makes their business run the way it does, and how other aspiring entrepreneurs can learn from them. They recently sat down with Adam Milstein, the Managing Partner of Hager Pacific Properties in Los Angeles to find out what he believes makes his business unique.
According to Aish, Adam Milstein explained that the idea for Hager Pacific Properties came while he attended grad school at USC and was displeased overall with his job offers, thereby feeling he could go out on his own to establish a real estate brokerage company.
He believes in doing things that other people haven’t done yet or haven’t been willing to do. He has never had a job he doesn’t like, and says the best $100 he’s ever spent has been on dinner with his wife.
Adam Milstein is originally from Israel which he considers to be home, but has spent the last 36 years in the US. He was born to a building framer and homemaker, both of whom migrated to Israel in the late 1940s when the modern nation first began.

Milstein completed his MBA and then met David Hager who he helped form Hager Pacific Properties.
