Career in Real Estate Investment: How it all started
When asked about how he started his career in real estate, Milstein attributes his life experiences after graduating to his success. When he was still in USC, a group of recruiters visited the school. As a student pursuing his higher education, he did not see why he should settle for a job that paid less what the undergraduate students were asking for at the time. He therefore made the decision to venture out on his own. He decided to try his hand at offering brokerage services before he started his own business. That is how he began his own real estate investment practice.
Apart from his career in real estate investment, he is also the National Chairperson and co-founder of the Israeli-American Council. He is also a member of several Boards of organizations that promote community development and similar interests. For instance, he sits as a director of the Sifriyat Pijama B’America, a community-based organization whose sole purpose is to provide free books that teach Jewish values to over 15 000 Jewish families in the country. The books are circulated monthly.
Milstein is a believer in bringing ideas into reality. He also believes that in order to have something done well, the best person to do it is you. According to him, the real estate sector has its challenges but it is also an exciting area for anyone to venture into.
