1.Depending on the nature and depth of your project, perhaps a design professional is a good idea.
2. Avoid the big box angle! All they want is your money, and couldn't care less about your project once you've signed the contract. I know, my business used to do installations for one with an orange sign!
3. If & when you hire a general contractor, ask to see credentials!!! Don't let them do the "skilled " labor portions of your work! Hire licensed professional contractors for each trade. If a general contractor tells you that he is capable of doing every aspect of your project, show him the front door QUICKLY! No one contractor could possibly master all of the trades involved, unless you're just painting!

Like others, I cant guess at the price you ask for, but can tell you there are two matters here. One is to stop the water entry, and to repair the damage. You need two estimates! duct work, plumbing, drywall and electrical contractors should inspect the damage.
good luck!
