Hands down ... LISTINGS.

I do enjoy working with buyers however in my market it is nearly impossible to get a buyer into a contract unless they have a trust account with hundreds of thousands of dollars to throw at the offer and waive appraisal and other contingencies. 

I do not relish working with buyers on my listings.

I enjoy both - being able to convey to sellers what buyers REALLY want in this market is a huge benefit to them.

Conversely, being able to coach buyers on Offers because I have had experience on the other side of the transaction is also beneficial.

It really depends on the person.  I especially like to work with repeat or referred clients because there is already some kind of connection.  Connection is preferable for me.

Both, but sellers are more certain to turn into closings by a long shot. We've been in a seller's market for a long time and I've written many strong offers only to be beaten out by someone who wants it more.  It gets disappointing until we are finally successful.  When we are there is a moment of disbelief and they buyer begins to wonder if they made a mistake.

    Cash buyers.  

     I don't "relish" selling my own listing, because I won't do Transaction Brokerage.  If the Buyer accepts that I have No Brokerage Relationship with them (no fiduciary), then fine.

To many questions up there so I'll give you to many answers. I like working with Qualified Buyers. I like working with high quality builders as sellers. I like working with people who don't use profanity. I like both buyers and sellers who are not just laser fixed on a price.
