Adam Milstein made the Jerusalem Post’s Top 50 Most Influential Jews list this last year because he has formed coalitions to bring awareness to issues in the Jewish communities across the world and has also spoken about issues facing Israel at various forums. He’s a real estate investor and Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties and also founder and Chairman of the Israeli-American Council. He doesn’t just support philanthropies and non-profits monetarily but is also personally involved with every one that the Milstein Family Foundation donates to. Ideamensch wanted to know what’s led to Milstein’s success in business and philanthropy, so they sat down for a pointed interview with him recently.
Adam Milstein told Ideamensch when asked that he helped start Hager Pacific Properties because he didn’t think any other jobs available at the time were fitting for his background and experience, so he went into commercial real estate investing. Milstein also says entrepreneurs heading into real estate should be willing to do the work themselves and not wait for others to do it for them because the field involves a lot of going out on your own. Milstein advises that it does take time to get ahead in the field and in trying to do so you may encounter criticism on how you’re running your business. A book he recommends to others is Dana Perino’s And The Good News Is… and he says aspiring entrepreneurs should use Constant Contact as a way to always follow up with contacts they make.
Adam Milstein was born in Israel in 1952 to first generation Jewish immigrants who came when the nation was first established in 1948. He fought in the Yom Kippur War in 1973 and then joined his father in building framing once he had returned home. Not long after that he enrolled in the Technion, Israeli Institute of Technology and completed his bachelor’s degree in business and economics. He moved with his family to the US and completed his MBA at USC prior to founding Hager Pacific Properties. In addition to his business and philanthropy at the Milstein Family Foundation, he and Gila started Sifriyat Pijama B’America to teach Jewish families Hebrew and cultural traditions.
The city of Baltimore has often had the reputation for being one of the more depressed economy is in the Northeast United States. While the city has had some hard times recently, it does appear that things are beginning to improve. This is largely evident in the continued improvement in the Baltimore real estate market.
For the past several years, the city of Baltimore has seen a reduction in vacancy rates, and increase in rent, and a steady increase in property values. Part of this has been due to the effort in the city to get rid of areas of all vacant housing and replace it with more positive uses. However, it is also due to the continued improvement in the local economy. To continue to support the growing business world in Baltimore, many people believe the city will continue to enhance its public transportation system.
Another factor that will likely help to support the Baltimore real estate market is the fact that it is focusing on providing more lifestyle amenities. This will include building out you were shopping and dining districts and building presidential complexes that have plenty of amenities that attract younger professionals. This could be particularly helpful to attract young adults that work in Washington DC, but cannot afford to be very high real estate prices.
