Adam Milstein is a cofounder and current Managing Partner of the company, and he said he thought of the idea for it while in grad school. He wasn’t finding the kind of career he wanted with most talent recruiters’ offers, so he decided to try commercial real estate brokering. He went on to say that making deals and seeing returns from them can take some time, but persistence is the key and as assets are built up, more structure to real estate investing will be had.

He has been a speaker at many Jewish world conferences including AIPAC, and is also a contributor to the Jerusalem Post and Huffington Post.
