My preference is working with sellers.  There is a lot you can do in a day, and you can have more of a schedule.  There are also a lot more skill sets used.  Buyers are fun to work with, but are so time intense.  

I would never dream of focusing on just one, though.  It takes knowledge of both to truly help either type of client.

I do both about equally although there are times when I'm more heavily weighted in one direction versus the other. When I have more buyers than sellers I miss the sellers. When I have more sellers than buyers I miss the buyers.

I like them both...here's why...

Buyers get you into the inventory and spark my inner coaching junkie.

Listings are easier than buyers most of the time and they spark my inner marketing junkie.
