Sorry, I don't know anyone for that range that would help. You won't get a 'proper' professional design for that. But probably a younger, less experienced designer. Maybe contact a local university or something similar?
I love it. You have to pay over $1000 to get a "proper, professional design."
Yes you do. I have commissioned websites for the last 7 or 8 years. I recently did a project with 15 new websites. 10 pages each, including flash video and bespoke wordpress templates. Cost 2k per site and that was cheap.
You get what you pay for in this world.
Sure, you can get a copy of dreamweaver, and put up a site that has your contact information on for free.
Equally, you can go to any number of machines and get 'professional' business cards printed for 5 bucks.
Equally, you can get a second hand tux from a charity shop that doesn't quite fit you.
All these ways of saving money are great if you don't care about what people think about you. If you have no concern over the image you are projecting.
Personally, I do care what people think when they see my suit, when I hand them my card and when they visit my site.
I am not suggesting you are wrong. You pays your money, you makes your choices.
