Ruby Elshafei

Ruby Elshafei has called Nashville home since 2000. She has loved witnessing Nashville’s transformation into a global hub for a wide range of industries, as well as becoming the city of choice for many startups.  She thrives to provide an exceptional level of service to her clients, that is anchored by a thorough grasp of all aspects of real estate.

Born and raised in Cairo, Egypt then relocating to the States (New York and Nashville), she knows all too well the excitements and some of the anxieties that can be associated with moving. With that in mind, she represents her buyers and sellers with dedication, attention-to-detail and compassion, whether they are relocating overseas, cross-country or across the street. She loves dealing with a wide array of clients ranging from the first-time home buyers to the seasoned pros. She prides herself on listening to her buyers and really understanding what they are looking for. Her sellers benefit from her excellent eye for preparing a home to list, her intuitive market analysis, pricing expertise and her effective marketing plan. Her goal is getting the most return for her sellers in as short a time as possible.

Ruby fully realizes that a home is one of the biggest assets and often the largest investment for her clients. With that in mind, she approaches the sale and purchase of a home with the level of attention and professionalism that it deserves, while always trying to make the process fun!

Ruby has a daughter living in Philadelphia and practicing law in Delaware and a son at Yale University. Both her children attended the University School of Nashville, an institution she holds dear to her heart and to which she remains very actively connected. She is an avid tennis player, loves to travel and is fluent in English, Arabic and French.


“Ruby is friendly, thoughtful, knowledgeable and all around lovely! She has continued to help us communicate with the builder since our closing and has consistently validated our feelings while also helping us feel comfortable with the process.” JW

“Ruby was a pleasure to work with. She was there to help us and offer advice every step of the way. As a first-time home buyer she “held our hands” through the process and always had a friendly positive attitude. She even offered to help us in any way she can with our move and recommended people to start work on the house.” MB

“Ruby organized everything! We especially appreciated her help in navigating the inspection process, which was new and confusing to us!” AC

“Ruby’s advice on pricing after guiding us on how to best present our house to the market made selling our home a breathe. Our house looked so beautiful when it hit the market that we were wondering why we wanted to sell!” DC
