Same here, it's a huge job,but just do a bit at a time.
Remember, the estimate of an electrician probably does not cover the cost of repairing the drywall, if any needs to be removed to pass wire. You'd have to do that work yourself or hire someone else. Maybe some electricians will do it too and include in the price though. something to consider if you do contract it out.
