Not sure how mechanically inclined you are, but if your not, get a second opinion from another shop just in case.
One thing you can do is put down cardboard or paper under the car and leave it for the night. This will tell you two things: Where the leak is roughly, and how much is leaking.
The rear main seal can be done with the engine in the car, but the transmission will have to be dropped. With the labour of dropping the tranny up to $1,000 doesnt seem bad. At a labour rate of $100hr thats 7 hours labour.
