Property developer Grant Webb reckons his Lynmore neighbourhood attracts a good sort of people.
"My favourite part is the people, they are all salt of the earth, really nice people."
Mr Webb, who has lived there since 1990, said lots of new people had moved into the suburb.
"But they're good people. They are young families coming for the school, it's a positive place."
There was plenty for new families in the area, Mr Webb said.
"The shops are nearby, there are parks and the Redwoods are great for mountain biking . . . it's a fantastic neighbourhood, it attracts a good sort of people."
Despite there being new neighbours on Fairley Rd, Mr Webb said there were people who had been there long-term, including an 87-year-old neighbour who raised her children in Lynmore.
"I have wonderful neighbours."
Mr Webb said in the 1980s and 1990s he was worried about the carving up of sections, "because rentals tend to downgrade the calibre of the area".
While there has been an intensity of housing, Mr Webb said the area hadn't degraded, however the prices were "astronomical".
Mr Webb said the geographic area of Lynmore was unique because of the nature of how it was surrounded, by farmland and the forest.
"It's an island."
Down the back of his property is a stream, where he said he liked the trees and listening to the birds.
The only downside to Lynmore is the noise of the planes flying overhead on the way to the airport, but that lasts "30 seconds", Mr Webb said.
