Haven't done both sides. If you don't like being a buyer's agent, try being a listing agent. Lots less driving.

Great question and great answers.
You got all great answers.
Depends on how good you are.
Neither is more "lucrative."
There are loan officers that make just above the minimum wage, and there are others that earn high 6 figures and into the 7's.
A piece of advice--if you focus on the money, you will crash and burn....Happens every time. You focus on the process and doing a spectacular job, and you never have to worry about money...
Pick what you like and then become the best at it...
I have done both and think there is more money in a real estate career, but more stability in a loan officer job.
It all depends whether you enjoy your work and will be consistant.
You could focus on listings so that your driving is minimized.
Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life...and the money will follow.
It would depend on what you are most proficient in.
I would think it would depend on which career you want to call yours.
