Sold: Snohomish twins back for more HGTV ‘Unsellable Houses’

The makeover show’s 13 episodes feature Snohomish County homes, with decor items sold at new store.

SNOHOMISH — The twins from Snohomish are back for a third round on HGTV’s “Unsellable Houses.”

The sister stars are working on 13 new one-hour episodes to air in 2022 featuring homes in Snohomish County.

Lyndsay Lamb and Leslie Davis make over homes that need some TLC to sell at top price.

The sisters, who turned 40 this year, are the hammer-slinging, caffeine-slugging hosts. Homeowners are part of the show.

The show’s second season had 32 million viewers and is one of the network’s top-performing programs.

It’s not even the full-time job for this dynamic duo.

“Unsellable Houses” is an offshoot of Lamb & Co., their real estate and design business headquartered in downtown Snohomish.

The show’s plot is that the sisters invest their own money into renovating the home, then split the excess profit from the sale with the seller.

As they like to say: “Win-win, twin win!”

Homes in the second season sold for between $400,000 and $700,000. Properties included an Everett bungalow, a Mill Creek golf course house and an Edmonds condo with a water view.

Fan demand for decor items on the show led the sisters to open a shop with the goods.

The store recently expanded into a large space at 801 First St. in Snohomish, with furniture, dishes, baskets, mirrors, throws and accessories seen on HGTV episodes. On display is the front of a retro VW van, their mode of transportation as they tool around towns on the series.

On Saturday, the store was busy with customers. Lamb & Co. logo hats and sister image T-shirts were hot items.

Carol Ebia, visiting from Hawaii, bought a $25 shirt and a candle to take home. She pondered the cutting board etched with the VW van.

“The show is fantastic,” she said.

Her daughter-in-law, Emma Ebia of Lake Stevens, terms it a “reachable” show.

“It’s a more realistic show to the regular person who can connect and go, ‘I can do that,’” she said. “And now you have the store where you can come in and say, ‘OK, so this is how it looks.’”

The banter between the twins is part of the sister act on the series.

Here’s how to tell who’s who: Lamb, the creative, extravagant, older-by-three-minutes sister, has brown hair, bangs and glasses. Davis, sensible and thrifty, has lighter hair parted in the middle.

Both married their Snohomish High sweethearts. Their four sons appear on the show, as does the twins’ mom. You might even find her at the store.

The twins were discovered by a production company in 2017 through YouTube videos of them singing car karaoke with a GoPro camera and dancing with clients to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”

The first season’s 11 half-hour episodes, which debuted in February 2020, had over 27 million viewers and was HGTV GO’s most-streamed new series.

“Our secret sauce is our ability to spot talented and inspiring experts who will appeal to viewers with their fresh, fun takes on real estate, renovation and all things related to home,” Jane Latman, president of HGTV, said in a news release.
