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 while meeting their real estate needs.

When he’s not at work, Brian enjoys staying active in the vibrant northwest outdoors and spending time with Kim, his wife of 38 years, their three adult children and their spouses, and his granddaughter Emerson. Brian also enjoys traveling, fishing, brewing beer, hiking, wine tasting, and spending time with friends.

Phil Walker

He brings this same customer-focused approach to his work with Tienken & Associates.

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.

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.

Kim Tienken


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-closing care program for past clients. From beginning to end, Kim is the generous caretaker of the Tienken & Associates community.

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 38 years. Together they enjoy spending time with their adult children and granddaughter Emerson, as well as traveling and vacationing with their family in Oregon and California.
