Half of the top 10 real estate sales professionals, ranked by total transaction sides closed in 2010, work in either Michigan or Las Vegas, according to a report by real estate consulting and communications company Real Trends Inc., in collaboration with The Wall Street Journal.

"The Thousand" report is based on 2010 data and divided into four separate lists of 250: sales professionals by transactions sides; sales professionals by sales volume; real estate teams by transaction sides; and real estate teams by sales volume. Of the top 10 sales professionals by transaction sides, six are affiliated with Realogy Corp. brands.

The bulk of top agents and teams by transaction sides work in foreclosure-ridden states. The 10 states with the highest foreclosure activity rates in 2010 were Nevada, Arizona, California, Utah, Georgia, Idaho, Michigan, Florida, Colorado and Illinois. Agents and teams from these states accounted for just over half of the spots on those two lists, with agents from Florida and California, combined, accounting for nearly a quarter of the spots on the lists.
