Homes wanted: Snohomish twins filming 4th season of ‘Unsellable Houses’ on HGTV

SNOHOMISH — The superstar sisters of HGTV want to turn your home into a showplace.

Twins Leslie Davis and Lyndsay Lamb, hosts of “Unsellable Houses,” are seeking homes for the popular show that is filming now for a fourth season set to air in May.

The coffee-slugging duo has turned their caffeinated energy and decor savvy into a brand.

In February, they opened a design center in the historic First Street building that houses their real estate office and renovation company, all under the Lamb & Co. umbrella. Two blocks away is their homegoods store of curated items and a wedding venue.

“The girls,” as the 41-year-old twins are known around Snohomish, didn’t stop there.

A warehouse near the U.S. 2 trestle in Everett stocks inventory for sales and staging. You can see the big Lamb & Co. sign from I-5.

And they own a couple of Airbnbs in north Everett.

“They are styled like show homes, they have the same look and feel,” Davis told The Daily Herald in a phone interview.

Their brand goes by Lamb & Co., not because Lyndsay is three minutes older than Leslie but because she was in real estate first.

Their voices sound alike (some quotes in the story are attributed to the wrong sister) but it’s easy to tell them apart. Lyndsay has brown hair, bangs and glasses. They roll as one, finishing each other’s sentences with the chemistry of Lucy and Ethel.

The twins grew up in Snohomish, married their high school boyfriends and are “boy moms.” Lamb has one son and Davis has three. The two older boys will graduate from Snohomish High School this year.

A tailgate party fundraiser at the high school that raised $30,000 for Seattle’s Children Hospital is featured in an episode. Lamb’s son, 17, received cancer treatment there as a child.

Their children, spouses, relatives and lovable mom, Nana, pop in and out of the series. So do their retro Volkswagens, known as Ginger, Penelope and Fran.

This season has new faces, including a puppy, a “pawject manager.”

Six years ago, the sisters were singing Taylor Swift songs while toting home-buying clients around in a VW van. Their YouTube car karaoke videos caught the attention of High Noon Entertainment, producer of “Fixer Upper” and “Cake Boss.”

“Neither of us imagined where we’d be right now,” Lamb said. “Every day we’re in shock to have gone this far and lasted this long.”

“Unsellable Houses” focuses on homes and people in Snohomish County.

Properties in the new season include a two-bedroom 1,000-square-foot rambler, a two-story with five bedrooms, a simple farmhouse and a ranch.

“We remodeled a ballroom,” Lamb said.

Episodes are shot on location in Everett, Mill Creek, Snohomish, Bothell and Lake Stevens. A Shoreline home is the King County exception. Selling prices range from $500,000 up to $1 million.

The plot of “Unsellable Houses” is that the sisters invest their own money into renovating the home, then split the profit over the list price with the seller, who is part of the show.

The roller coaster housing market sets the tone.

“We have to be more conservative, a little more picky with houses we’re doing, because the risks have gone up,” Lamb said. “Homes aren’t selling overnight. It has been more stressful.”

The sisters have joined other branches of the HGTV family.

They were on “Rock the Block,” a renovation contest with four HGTV show teams in South Carolina, and an episode of “Home Town Kickstart,” in Winslow, Arizona.

They were back on “Rock the Block” in Denver recently as judges.

“It was a lot more enjoyable being on the judging side than the competing side,” Davis said.

This weekend, the twins will take the stage at the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show, along with Christopher Knight who gained fame as Peter Brady on “The Brady Bunch.” He starred in HGTV’s “A Very Brady Renovation.”

What’s next for the Snohomish sisters?

“Hopefully a season five,” Lamb said.

With a newfangled electric VW bus.
