Adam Milstein has made a name for himself in real estate, and also doubles as an influential leader in the Jewish-American community. As a managing partner at Hager Pacific Properties, he relieves how a normal day to him looks like, and what drives his passion for success.
Adam helped start Haper Pacific Properties, with his business partner David Hager, partly as an escape from formal employment. After completing his MBA in Entrepreneurship at USC, no American company wanted to employ him on a decent salary, according to David. His military experience before joining the business proved to be a barrier to getting the high paying jobs he wanted. So he set out to curve his own path.
After three years of running a successful freelance real estate brokerage business, Adam decided to become an investor as well through Haper Pacific. While every other entrepreneur out there relies on goal setting, Adam finds this quite limiting. He thrives in the unpredictability of each day, especially in a world like real estate where sudden ups and downs are common. As long as he has applied himself fully to whatever challenge that comes, Adam believes he has accomplished the goal of the day.
But he doesn’t fail to acknowledge the challenges that have come his way. One of his greatest failures, which was a golden lesson in disguise, was believing he would become an overnight success in real estate. He invested blindly which led to him losing a great deal of his financial fortunes. Nevertheless, this experience cultivated patience in Adam and fueled him to be even more successful than he initially thought he could be.
If there was one business secret Adam could reveal to the world, it is mastering the art of customer follow up. He believes many entrepreneurs lose 100% if they do not follow up on the contacts they get. Follow-up coupled with consistency and persistence are the ingredients that fuel the success of Haper Pacific Properties.
