SOURCE: Rear Main Seal Leak
To replace the seal, the mechanic will have to either lift the engine or lower the transmission. You will get much better pricing going to a transmission shop (e.g. AAMCO) and getting a quote from them to replace the seal.

First off i would hope that there was some waranty coverage for this repair.
Is the fluid leak indeed oil (black/brown)? If so that would be the rear main. Problem could be the surface around the seal on the engine has a defect or space.
If the fluid leak is a reddish color this is transmission fluid and would be the torque convertor leaking not the rear main.
