The 500 largest real estate brokerages in the nation completed fewer transaction sides last year than in 2009 but had a slight boost in total sales volume, according to the latest report from communications company Real Trends, which each year ranks the country’s largest brokerages by transaction sides and closed sales volume.

Overall, the 500 largest real estate brokerages in the country completed 6.7 percent fewer transaction sides in 2010 than in 2009. Total sales volume, however, increased 1.3 percent to $513 billion.

For example, NRT Inc.--which ranked No. 1 in overall closed transaction sides and closed sales--saw its sales volume increase 5.4 percent to $112.9 billion in 2010. Other companies experienced even larger percentage boosts in sales volume, such as Houlihan Lawrence, which had a 37.3 percent jump in sales volume, and Prudential Douglas Elliman, which saw a 33.5 percent jump in sales volume in 2010 to $11.5 billion.

Here are the brokerage rankings based on 2010 closed sales volume:

2. HomeServices of America Inc.
3. The Long & Foster Companies Inc.
4. Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate
5. Prudential Fox & Roach REALTORSŪ
6. Alain Pinel REALTORS Inc.
