SNOHOMISH — The town’s famous twins are back with a new season of “Unsellable Houses” on HGTV.

Season 4 kicks off Sunday as Snohomish sisters Leslie Davis and Lyndsay Lamb transform homes from stagnant to sold in an hour. Tune in on HGTV or stream on MAX and HGTV GO.

On the show, and off, the 42-year-old twins are known for their banter and ability to consume large quantities of coffee. The exuberant duo can often be seen walking down First Street in downtown Snohomish.

The sisters are ambassadors for the town, promoting causes and local businesses.

A meet and greet with Davis and Lamb is 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sept. 15 at Lamb & Co. Design, 610 First St. The free event will have food and drink for purchase as a fundraiser for Seattle Children’s Hospital. Those who make a donation will get their name on a paper VW to hang in the window of their homegoods store at 801 First St.

The HGTV series focus is on homes and people in Snohomish County, but in one of the 13 new episodes the sisters step into King County to revamp an outdated Shoreline house that lagged on the market. Other properties this season include a rambler, two-story and farmhouse in Everett, Mill Creek, Snohomish, Bothell and Lake Stevens, ranging from $500,000 to $1 million.

“It shows the whole variety of our community and the wide range of homes we have,” Davis said.

The market has changed since the series launched. When the show debuted in 2020, homes topped out around $500,000.

“It’s been a little different this season,” Lamb told The Daily Herald during filming this year. “We have to be more conservative, a little more picky with houses we’re doing, because the risks have gone up. Homes aren’t selling overnight. It has been more stressful and you can see that come through on the show. But we’ve still been having a lot of fun.”

The plot of “Unsellable Houses” is that the sisters invest their own money into renovating the home, then split the additional profits, minus their investment, with the seller, who is part of the show.

“Win-win, twin win,” is the motto.

Who’s who?

Lamb has glasses and bangs. Davis has lighter hair, parted in the middle.

Their Volkswagens are named Ginger, Penelope and Fran.

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.”

According to an HGTV news release, the series had 23.4 million viewers last season.

Josephine Bertelsen, of Mount Vernon, said it is her favorite HGTV show.

“It’s kind of funky and classy and everything rolled into one,” said Bertelsen, 83. “”I like their style and personalities. I like how they bring in the family. I’m a twin, I would like them even if I weren’t.”

Will there be a Season 5?

High Noon Entertainment already has an ad casting homeowners for “Unsellable Houses.”

Davis and Lamb have appeared in other branches of the HGTV family, such as “Rock the Block” and “Home Town Kickstart.”

The twins grew up in Snohomish, married their high school boyfriends and have sons who graduated this year from Snohomish High School.

Their sons, spouses, relatives and beloved mom, Nana, are in the series. This season has new faces, including a different contractor and a puppy.

A tailgate party fundraiser at Snohomish High last fall for Seattle Children’s is featured in an episode airing later this month. Lamb’s son received successful cancer treatment at the hospital as a child.

The twins have turned their real estate and design savvy into a brand, Lamb & Co.

Earlier this year, they opened a design center in the First Street building that houses their real estate office and renovation company. Two blocks away is their homegoods store of curated items, such as decor, totes, jewelry and furniture.
