"Intolerance and community based harassment"

My review isnt flattering as my experience with Dutton Park is marred with intolerance and community based harassment. I have owned a property in Dutton Park for over 5 years, and when I first bought the property I was warned by the realestate agent that the previous owner had had running battles with neighbours. I of course thought it must have been an issue with the previous owner only to find that the suburb was quick to shift its harassment to others. My property consisted of two floors, and I was fortunate enough to live in one and rent out the other to students. While I owned the property 2 of my tenants (over a year between each) called police and ambulances appearing to have breakdowns complaining that fellow tenants and neighbours were harassing and trying to kill them and subsequently returned home to their respective countries in terror. I thought the first incident was just the girl going nuts, and when the second occurred I thought it odd but still couldnt believe their wild claims. And then it started happening to me. Neighbours waging "noise campaigns" waking you multiple times every single night, people banging on your fence and gate and even my bedroom window, strangers parking immediately outside my house sitting in their cars for literally hours on end, using lasers to shine on my house and through windows, and even one instance where a woman banged on my gate on a Sunday and walked off to a neighbours house and when I asked her why she said she didnt want a confrontation as it was the weekend, then proceeded to call me a criminal and say that I was violent when I was anything but. It has been simply a nightmare. And at the risk of diminishing my own property value I cant in good conscience recommend this suburb unless you are of the ilk to also contribute to community based harassment. If you do chose to buy or rent here, I wish you good luck. Btw I clicked the "Neighbourly community" in jest. It is anything but welcoming.

"One of Brisbane's best"

Fantastic suburb for my family. Have lived in inner city suburbs my whole life and this weighs up as one of the best! Fantastic investment opportunities too
