A past realtor of the year, Brian’s sales team consistently ranks among the top RE/MAX equity group teams in Oregon and Washington, and led the Oregon RE/MAX equity group in sales in 2014, 2015, and 2016. In 2016 alone, Tienken & Associates recorded over 39 million dollars in sales.
Brian has experience working with residential, investment, new construction, land, and agricultural real estate and works with buyers in all price ranges, from small starter homes to high-end homes and condos. With over 92% of Tienken & Associates’ business coming through repeat and referral customers, Brian has proven his ability to meet his client’s needs in an ethical and trustworthy fashion. For Brian, the home buying process is more than just a transaction, it’s the opportunity to create new relationships with each of his clients.
When he’s not at work, Brian enjoys staying active in the vibrant northwest outdoors and spending time with Kim, his wife of 36 years, and his three adult children.

Before he began his real estate career, Phil Walker owned and managed his own landscape supply and trucking company, eventually growing it into one of the largest in the state through his personal dedication to providing exceptional customer service. He brings this same customer-focused approach to his work with Tienken & Associates.
As a longtime Portland resident, Phil’s clients benefit from his knowledge of the Portland Metro region and surrounding communities. His love for the area makes him a valuable resource for clients looking for the property that will meet their specifications and bring long-term fulfillment. From consultation to closing, Phil’s number one priority is his client’s satisfaction
Phil is actively involved in his church’s Compassion Connect, Young Life and youth ministries and enjoys snow and water skiing, traveling, and camping. He’s been married to his wife Sharon for nearly 25 year and together they have two teenaged sons.
Before beginning his real estate career, Seth worked in Hollywood as a Director of Photography in the Television and Film industry. That high-pressure environment taught Seth the importance of relationship building and exceeding client goals.
Even during his time in Hollywood, Seth had a love for real estate. And after moving to Portland in 2007, he became a partner in a property investment company, which ultimately led him to pursue a new career as a Realtor. In early 2018, Seth had the opportunity to join the Tienken and Associates Team and jumped in with both feet.
Seth focuses on residential and multifamily investment properties, but he also has a knack for finding unique undeveloped lots and land of all sizes, types, and locations. With a deep knowledge of home construction and materials, Seth can help you with all types of properties.
By focusing on his customer’s needs first and by providing a high level of personal service, Seth’s goal is to build lasting relationships with all his clients.
Outside of work, Seth and his wife Juli enjoy biking, hiking, gardening, cooking, and spoiling their Chihuahua Penny.
CLIENT RELATIONS / BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
We want to be our client’s realtor for life. But accomplishing this goal requires following through on a plan of care from the time we first meet a potential client to well after we close their sale. Kim Tienken’s vision makes this all possible. Using her communication and networking skills, Kim brings new clients into the Tienken Community and also directs our robust after care program for past clients. From beginning to end, Kim is the generous heart of Tienken and Associates.
Relationships also fuel Kim’s personal life. She draws great satisfaction from connecting with friends and family over a home-cooked meal, and now extends that same spirit of hospitality to the students in her “Community Thyme” cooking classes.
Kim and her husband Brian have been married for 36 years, and together lead a Life Group mentoring young married couples in their church.
