Synonyms of "Our" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between a. Our place is just a few minutes walk from the station. and b. Our place is just a few-minute walk from the station. ?
A: It should be "Our place is a few minutes' walk from the station." This is the only correct way to write it.

There is no hyphen ("-") here. Generally, you use hyphens when the two words together make an adjective for the next word - "few minutes" is not an adjective for "walk". "Few minutes' walk" means "a walk of a few minutes", not "a walk that is few minutes".

It's "minutes" because it's more than one minute. The apostrophe is there because "minutes" ends in "s", otherwise it would be 's:

"Our place is a minute's walk from the station." = It takes 1 minute of walking to get to the station from our place.
Q: What is the difference between a. Our new secretary is kind of a tough customer.
and b. Our new secretary is kind of tough customer. ?
A: B is not a correct sentence.
